Hi to all, who find this thread interesting, and any others, who just go around))
Here will be posts my litle bu, maybe, interesting ideas, and how they will be done in models.
In the beginning i mus say some words abou Gharland - world that will be represented here.



Gharland
The former mining colony of Earth. Mention in the archives of Mars or Terra is detected, as the settlement of the planet happened at the dawn of space exploration by mankind. World populated and studied several national corporations.
Ethnic enclaves: European (colony countries members of the European community), Evroaziatsky (Russian-Chinese alliance), United New World colonies (Union of North and South America + the satellites-state).
Found accidentally. as a result of warp disturbances ship with investigators off course and I went out into the material world at random coordinates. Near the exit zone was discovered the system of the 18 bodies, four of them - the giant planets, 2 - Earth-like planets (Gzarland and Lantar), and the rest - small bodies and planetoids with tight orbit.
Long before the dark era of technology the world was cut off from the rest of space exploration. What was the cause is not known. Similarly, one can only say that at the same time in the great homeland-earth begin serious political and military confrontation, which echoed the government enclaves in the Gharland.
this period of precise data is not kept or they have not yet discovered. All that we know - the more sad news reached Earth with the more volatile was the situation in the colony.
By the time of the Unification Wars and the Great Crusade of Gharlande and this whole system has long been forgotten, perhaps as soon as the outbreak of war betwen Mars and Earth.

Since the beginning of that , and to the present day human civilization on Gharlande took a long hard road.
Originating as a community of national enclaves, is engaged in mining of rare minerals, it has become a group of rival powers. In the end, their confrontation resulted in a conflict on a planetary scale.
Radiation, chemical and biological pollution of the planet was critical. Over two hundred years most of the world was not suitable for settlement. A society unable to deal with it, broke up into small groups, living in areas of relatively pure.

Speaking of this one can not go back in time. Most current technologies Gharlanda - recovered by jerky or data found samples and small series. Earned and forgotten so long ago, Gharland not managed to get probably the most valuable gift of the Dark Era - STC. Standardization and harmonization at a low level, but the lack of worship the Machine God allows and encourage that the activities of private workshops and design offices.
During the active phase of fighting the colonial army destroyed most of the most advanced at that time technology zone. The clashes zone not survived almost nothing. Those ruins that still can be found in the wasteland - the ruins of the non-military facilities and large industrial complexes - objects too massive to be peeling off the dust.
In the cities, the most valuable finds yalyayutsya museums, schools and other educational institutions - there can be found a grain of ancient knowledge and technologies.

Gharland - a world of many religions.
Large and small groups, have remained faithful to the traditions of their ancestors, profess religion and cults of the old Earth.
The planet also has a certain presence of extraterrestrial races and their influence.
In the old days on the planet crashed giant spacecraft (Space Hulk).
The vessel crashed into the planet in the vicinity of the Great Desert, and then left to stand so huge mountain of rusting metal. The ship was inhabited by a nomadic group of green-skinned aliens, known as the Orcs. Thousands of years later orcs rasbrelis the world, they settled on the ruins, creating their barbarian kingdoms, or joined to human settlements as the mercenaries.
The largest group, numbering over 10 million lives orcs in and around the huge brown mountains - rusted wreckage, brought them into this world. The group calls itself the "Clan Rusty peak."

Enclaves of other races, such as Tau and Eldar are extremely rare. At present there is no accurate data on the number.

Many people are in a state close to madness, argue that some voices are turning to him through space and time. And although most of them are harmless, some are so fanatical servants of these "votes" that gather around them a group of followers.

Some of them claim. some say that the gods of chaos with them.
From ancient records it is known that a similar phenomenon was first recorded mass in the first century after the colonization of the world. cultists, had not yet associated themselves with the "chaos" were hiding in remote regions of the planet, establishing numerous cults and secret temples. And while many legends and myths go about these mysterious and frightening cults, particularly vigorous activity they do not lead.
However, there are rare reports of attacks on cults these remote enclaves.

By the way, Lantar - less than Gharland planet. In the era of colonization, he also was colonized. However, the weak gravity and frequent meteor bombardment was not allowed to get hold Lantaru dense atmosphere suitable for breathing.
World mastered precisely as an observation post, remote observatory and space port beacon for ships from Earth.
With the collapse of society and the beginning of the war Gharlande enclaves staff was evacuated and abandoned buildings. Most of them came into disrepair. Low technical level of the current population Gharlanda does not allow to send an expedition to recover the colony Lantare and analysis of extant technologies there.

Being visible once a year on the horizon of Gharland, Lantar in ancient times became the object of cult worship. To this day, among the uneducated population of the planet run stories about distant Lantar gates, through which people come to Gharland many years ago. One legend tells of a sleeping god who was buried in the distant mysterious Lantare. God who will one day be awakened by their children, and again gave them his great wisdom and power.
Indirectly, these myths are confirmed by the most ancient archives, found during excavations of the ruins of a colonisation-era cities. They referred to the shipyard of Lantar and a huge ship, which was built in the period before the war by enclaves to study more distant worlds. The ship, called the Logos in the records, contain all the theoretical knowledge useful to the colonists as well as records of the Earth's history. The ship supposedly still resting on the docks somewhere on Lantar orbit, awaiting the return of the creators.

Hi to all! Little update=)

Another Gharland guntruk, based on 1\48 scale soviet armored car BA-20.
This W.I.P. proxy-tauros represent a improvised light armored car, builded for defending and escorting caravans in wasteland and, probably, guard function in small isolated outposts.

This is really cool! I love when people do the more civilian side of 40k, or rather less of the 'grand apocalyptic battles'. 'Civilian' in 40k would still be pretty heavily armed

I like the fluff for the background too, and the use of a damaged STC to justify why they've got some Imperial equipment.

I can see there being greenskins on the planet as well, but how are you going to do the presence of Eldar and Tau (especially seeing as Tau are very new to the galactic stage and Gharland has been cut off for a very long time).

Eldar I could see there being a webway gate that could allow them access if there are warp-storms cutting them off...

Otherwise, keep up the good work!

Time for planning))
I want to make additional civilian guntruck to finish my squadron of Gharland free citys millitia.
To make third car in maximum same style but without copy-pasting of the same model.
As a base i choose a GaS-69 "hard top" in 1\43 scale.



In plans:
1) hatch and turret with grenade launcher
2) some stuff as bags and folded tents on roof and rear
3) full repaint (yellow or sand, with "geology" decals)
3)crew of driver and gunner

First progress in next post)

Tiny update.
Many Gharland vehicles based on some pre-imperial models, as land crawlers, tracktors, cars and many others. Some times expeditions, sended into the wasteland, found something "more young", like heresy-era or even pre-heresy imperial vehicles, lay in the sands thousands of years and take that to nearest town.

"Word of Logos" journal.

Sir Roger Loyd III, archeologist.
"Last three years expedisions didnt found any interesting, but now, we may proudly say - we made it! In one of my last expeditions we found a vehicle, close identify as early imperial APC 'Rhino". We secure a place of this great founding in fear, what many greedy hands will destroy other, still undiscovered treasures in this reagion. Vehicle was generously gived to Engineering society there ot will be studied."

So, after this great discovery, new design will be adapted and soon replenish Gharland vehicles with new one... or even more!
First generation of new, REDISCOVERED type of tracked APC - RL-1 (Roger Loyd - 1). Based on ancient rhino type. Probably Mk-1 or 2.
Work In Progress...

That Dozer of yours makes me think of the one guy who got to the point he lost it and essentially made himself a modern day SM Dreadnought, taking a bulldozer and armoring the thing to the point there was nothing that could stop him, until he fell through the base of a building into the foundation, trapping the dozer at which point he ended it.

Look up Killdozer and you'll see what I mean.

Great stuff - my favorite is Sgt Harker. Do you have a scale shot with the corsairs and other figures? I thought LOTR figures were generally too small, but those look nice with some some GW bits.
