Penticton BC Canada

Hello and greetings from Canada! Welcome to a constant Work In Progress ... Total Picture Count so far: 29

This is one of my Imperial Guard armies, and i am proud to display all three production versions of the Imperial Guard Sentinel Walker:




My inspiration was from the epic war movie "Apocalypse Now", where a US Cavalry unit had traded in it's tanks for helicopters.

With my army, i envisioned Troop choices using the Armoured Company rules, taking a Tank Commander (maybe even Pask) and outfitting the three Fast Attack slots with Sentinel Squads!




I only have one of the Mark 1 Sentinel "chicken" walkers; i originally purchased two of these in a hard plastic case, but split it with a friend so we got one each.







The Mark 2 Sentinel or "girder" walkers were packaged separately; originally as a boxed set with a styrofoam tray, then in a blister pack.
These were a lot of fun to play with as they were first armed with an Assault Cannon that used Sustained Fire Dice!

I swapped out the Cadian Driver for a Mark 1 (Beret) metal Storm Trooper with Backpack (Heavy Weapons Gunner)





When GW came out with a boxed set of three Catachan Sentinels, i bought one box and started a second Sentinel Squad.

This is the Armageddon Steel Legion variant, which builds an Armoured Sentinel with upgraded Lascannon, Powerplant, Enclosed Canopy, and extra parts:





I've never played a game of Apocalypse, but i got a pamphlet about Apoc Formations at my local hobby store and was intrigued so i looked it up and was thrilled to discover that i could field a Formation of Sentinels!
The Apocalypse Formation had three squads plus one more Sentinel as a Company Commander, for a grand total of ten ( 10 ) Sentinels.

From the Warhammer 40k wiki: http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Sentinel

Known Formations:

Emperor's Shield Infantry Platoon - An Emperor's Shield Infantry Platoon is a formation used by the Imperial Guard that consists of an Infantry Platoon on foot with the support of between one to three squadrons of Scout or Armoured Sentinels.
Three Emperor's Shield Infantry Platoons can be combined to form an Emperor's Shield Infantry Company

Emperor's Talons Recon Company - An Emperor's Talons Recon Company is a Sentinel formation that consists of three squadrons of Sentinels, of any type, and a single formation leader, also of any type.
The Sentinel formation leader is often a combat-hardened veteran, and he and his reconnaissance company are usually tasked with hunting down a specific enemy unit and destroying it.
These Sentinels stalk their prey relentlessly, carefully crossing the battlefield and emerging from the shadows to strike down their target with the utmost efficiency.

Armageddon Stompa Hunters - Traditionally, the Sentinel is considered ill-suited to deal with enemy super-heavy, Titan-class war engines, being completely outgunned and out-classed in almost every regard.
However, when Armoured Sentinels are organised into large hunting packs, usually consisting of up to five Armoured Sentinels, they are capable of producing a torrent of firepower that can topple giants.
The Armoured Sentinel formations that roam the Ash Wastes of Armageddon are the most illustrious of this breed. These Sentinels are armed with powerful anti-armour weapons, such as Lascannons and Plasma Cannons.

Thank you very much fellow Canadian!

The newer plastics are a pleasure to convert, trying to add Hunter-Killer Missiles to as many as possible

Here are three Squads of Armoured Sentinels, i've started to magnetize weapons for swaps.




First squad: one Mark 1 and two Mark 2 metal miniatures.




Second squad: Sentinel boxed set (3 x plastic Sentinel, now discontinued)




Third squad: two eBay recoveries and a bare, unpainted Steel Legion Sentinel from a local hobby store

Thank you for checking them out! New Thread coming soon due to Photofucket stealing my pics.

Curious, what state do you live in AshNomad? Somewhere hot?

Speaking of Ash Nomads, that makes me think of Necromunda.

I'm finishing off a Necromunda-led 40k Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum army, they are led by a Hive Gang and thus are equipped as Steel Legion.

I have yet to post up a Thread on the Dakka P&M Blog but it is in the works as we speak!

Thank you again for your time and consideration,

Ben

Thank you so much for checking out my Thread, and very sorry the photos are missing as Photofucket hijacked them.

New Dakka P&M Blog coming, although I have put my time and energy on completing an Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum Hive Gang-led Steel Legion army.

The back story is they are from Necromunda, but sent to Armageddon and thus equipped Steel Legion; I haven't got a new Thread but that is coming too!

Just curious, whereabouts in the UK do you live? My mum did her nursing training in Carshalton, south London

Cheers and thank you again for your time and consideration sir!

Ben

I then started to acquire more Sentinels but one at a time; first at my local hobby store then online as I mentioned, repainting them to match my scheme.

The plastic Mark 3 Sentinels are a blast, i even salvage a bunch of parts and custom build my own!

The scratch-built Sentinel was spray-primed flat black and painted to match the Company:

Your army looks fantastic- good job on staying the course and staying focused! Some of us aren't as disciplined and lose....SQUIRREL!

Love all the sentinels, and as soon as I saw the Mark I (I've got a couple of those floating around myself!) I thought- 'cool, even the sentinels have a light recon type job!'

The kitbash was excellent- in addition to the paths you're following to expand your footprint (ha!) have you thought about seeing if cheap bits from the Robogear walkers are available? Thst might expand your sources of supply...

Well done!

Thank you for the kind words, and for checking out my Build Blog! Ever since i was adolescent and saw "Apocalypse Now", i was enthralled with an army of mobile vehicles.

Now that there is 40K Apocalpyse and the expansion of the Warhammer universe, I have more options such as fielding the Sentinels as "Armageddon Stompa Hunters"

I even hunted down a custom KR Multicase with pick & pluck foam so I could store and transport the entire Sentinel Company:
