Thanks very much, Viterbi! The scouts remain... challenging. I'd love more, but the models are so boring, and I'm not sure how to spice them up - to the point where I've even considered grabbing some of the old goofy-posed OOP metal scouts. I've got a few more nearly finished coming sometime, though, so watch this space!

My next goal is to finish up a crusader squad. I've moved two primed templars onto the workbench, though I've yet to properly touch them. Hopefully I'll make some progress soon, as I think I can churn Templars out pretty quickly by this point.

Finally! First finished squad in Japan.

It's been too long since I got a whole unit done - in fact, I'm not sure I did in 2019, at all unless Rein and Raus count... Might've finished an Admech squad, too, but as they're on opposite sides of the planet, are they really completed?

Anyway! Crusader Squad: IForgotToLookAtMyListOfTemplar-yNamesThisMorning!

This five will hopefully be expanded upon, with a focus on assaulting and close range fighting, hence all the chainswords. I feel pretty good about how they've turned out, and I really like the Sword Brother, he more or less as I imagined. I also found out that I can knock out a Black Templar pretty quickly, which I'm very pleased with. Think I'm going to try to have at least one templar on the old work bench at any given moment, as I'm still flitting absent-mindedly between projects. Once I've cleared my workbench of a couple of things off the to-paint queue, I'm going to try and throw myself at the Templars a bit harder.

As always, thanks for stopping by! C&C always appreciated!

Squad 2 (? 6 dudes, but all destined to be beloved meatshield Neophytes for a crusader squad) done!

These guys are a helluva throwback, easily one of my oldest efforts, and on some of the faces I think it super shows (the Sargent Telion is more recent, and I think I did a much better job, if I do say so myself ).

But they have been a learning curve, and it was nice to finish them and being able to look back on all I've learned. They'll get a spot of varnish in the morning, if I can do it before work (shout out to all my 'essential' battle brothers here). But these boys are finally done, and with that. I also like to think that those fast-and-ready conversions with the fantasy daggers really look the part. I'm super glad, in hindsight, that I nervously took those clippers to plastic. One of my more ambitious early conversions, but I love 'em, and would do it again anytime! (Had this thing in the back of my mind with the leftover maces from the flagellant kit, but scouts are ¥4100 a box, so not on yer nelly)

All of my scouts. Finally finished. Feels good to say.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats on finishing the squad! Your conversions really paid off and Sarge looks like a proper Sarge.

Thanks Viterbi! He was kind of an impulse addition, just because slogging through those face sculpts is so unrewarding. It was nice to paint a scout with a face that actually looked good, and I can't help but wonder if there were ever fancy prototypes for a re-deux of the scout molds, with nice faces etc. that just got shelved because of the Space Marine re-boot.

I might use him as a sarge if I ever run these guys as a scout squad, outside the crusader mob I'm accumulating, but otherwise, in my headcannon, he's just an ordinary Neophyte. In Damnation Crusade, there's this bit about how if the Initiate marine a Neophyte is apprenticed to dies, but the Neophyte doesn't, then they have to start their training again, from the beginning, under another Black Templar. I like to imagine that the not-Telion guy has had decades of experience, but has always had his trainer killed at the last possible minute, but he's still really decorated and respected, but held back by the rituals and superstitions of the chapter.

But he also means that the scouts I have out here outnumber my marines! I better get painting so I can run that crusader squad properly...

Yo!

Can you believe it's been like 5 years since I painted a Sister of Battle?!?!?
I've had this particular mini since I was in Uni. Initially brush-primed with abaddon black, fresh from the pot, I decided to give her and her sisters a new lease of life after I found a replacement for my multi-melta retributor backpacks!!! Also because I'm still salty as all hell about how much sisters minis cost here in Japan...
So, I stripped the kinda crappy paintwork, and got cracking.
This month hasn't had a lot of hobby time. Work is super busy, and more than a few times in the last week I've gotten in and just flopped down and slept. But I managed to squeeze a bit of painting time in for her - special marker as my first mini of this wing of this project, as she's stood triumphantly on the skull of a foul ork!

Hope you all enjoy!

Nice clean paintjob and good for her to stand on the dirty xenos skull as a sign of her holiness! Hope you get some more hobby time soon, always good to see more sisters coming along.

Thanks very much Viterbi! Very kind of you to say! It's a lot better than how she's looked for the last 4-and-a-bit years, so I'm very pleased! I think the pose is as much down to her legs getting a little warped when I took her off the slotta as anything else, but it's a neat little pose, regardless.

It's still a bit up in the air, but I might be getting a bit of hobby time this week. That or I'll be really really busy with a lot of overtime!

Great looking black templars. And love the hazard stripes on the sister's bolter. When the force is all together, you should do an army shot based around the old 3rd edtion starter art.

Thanks very much! I've been a bit cracked out on painting hazard stripes lately - the effect is quite striking, but I feel like my freehand is improving a lot, and it's a simple way of visually tying together a lot of my imperium armies. I got the idea from the classic Blanche SoB codex artwork, and I feel like it suits the old metals. I wasn't really sure how to paint the bolter casings initially. Usually for my Templars I do 'em black, but I think with these flatter, older metal sculpts, that would make them a bit too indistinct. The yellow stripes are suitably retro and hi-vis, imo, and add a bit more impact to the otherwise limited pallet of the Order of our Martyred Lady.

Thanks so much! I think every Templar player dreams of being able to do that artwork justice - I certainly put together my inquisition goons with the cowled, mysterious warband in the back in mind. I know I've mentionned it before in this thread, but it really does put a silly grin on my face whenever someone references that painting in relation to my minis! Really appreciate it!
