In today's little update, a top hatch, handle, front vent and some eyebrows have been added. Just for the record, the arms and top weapons are not glued in place yet... and the bodies are not attached to the base (so the pose hasn't been fixed yet) :



I will be fettling the bodies and getting them finished before moving on to the arms .

In other news... the Squat Berserker has been sold to Short Wars now . He will be available from here in good time:

http://www.shortwars.co.uk/

The miniature in question didn't fare particularly well in the competition but the ones above it were worthy of being there. Here's my now posted Berserker:



As for the Halfling snipers... they can now be found for sale over at CP models :

Most of the money from the sculpts I have sold has gone to charitable causes so everyone is a winner

I have now primed the dreads:



Now that I have got as far as I can with them, I thought I'd see what I could find in the loft and managed to uncover my Bullgryn squad. Only one of them had been converted... and he didn't have any weapons but luckily, I had thought about that earlier and bagged a lot of Bullgryn bits from EBay. With the bits already available, it was merely a case of a bit of sawing, drilling, pinning and gluing and I soon ended up with this:



He's a converted, Mantic, Dreadball Ork with GW weapons. He still needs some putty work to fill gaps and sort out a few niggles... but he's pretty much there . I have another four sat in a box beside me so I have enough for a squad of five. Tidy .

Do you ever field these guys as a count as Space Marine army? I'd love to see a Squat BatRep.

I don't game ... so, sadly, no bat-reps from me.

The army is mostly Astra Millitarum, with Space Marine elements (the higher level command units).

Shame, you could create some really beautiful battles with this army.

My army isn't as rivety as a standard GW Imperial army... In fact, it uses rather a lot of countersunk-head screws and rivets that blend in to the surface of the armour

I have a very limited amount of Imperial kit and tend to use Squat built kit instead... and my Squats aren't particularly fond of humans :(

Just need some decals to arrive now :



I've ordered some decals from here:

and another two tanks from EBay. They will be converted to be the same as this one.

... and so it begins again . Two more Punishers have arrived:



I have the pens, I have the lascannons and I have the sprue for the punisher cannon.

Once they are converted, that will be the first section of the tank company complete. Then another two lots of three and a command tank .

Those tanks work quite well for Squats, good find mate !

Any idea what you will use for transports ?

At the moment, I will be converting some 1/35 scale German half-tracks (I have four that I have already started).

That said, I am almost tempted to get more of these tanks and just make a top panel for them that has space for a small turret and some lasgun ports... the jury is out at the moment

Skdfz 251 Hannomag Half tracks ? They would be a good choice ! I got a bulk buy of 3x Chinese copy Airfix 1/32nd scale Hannomags from ebay, they'll be awesome if i ever find the time to convert them !

If you look back through this thread, you'll see a previous attempt but I have decided to go with a tank version by chopping the front off and losing the wheels but keeping the tracks.

I like the version you did on page 1, but I'm sure whatever you go with will look the part !

Love those tanks, just perfect for Squats and Grots. Strangely enough I've been looking at these recently as well as the Meng Kids flyer range (The Lancaster bomber is on my 'might purchase' list).
