Hey dakka! This will be the sister blog to my bad guys thread. I may repost the Assassins that I had posted there previously as this will be their proper home. Nevermind the Jibber Jabber Guardsman! To pics!

The Steel Legion will be mostly stock but sarges will have shoulder pads

Here's the base color



1st Platoon Lt.


Given the limited range of models for steel legion I'm basing alot of conversions off the Sargent model, which is why my sarges will be regular guardsmen with an officer's pauldron. As can be clearly seen in the command squad here
The captain is still wip, based on a tallarn officer





Just needed one more GL, thus Corporal Mason



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Continuing with the command for the steel legion, just got this old fella in the mail a couple weeks back.

Officer of the fleet, still needs a vox pack

Artillery Officer, also needs backpack and also a very familiar pose, what can I say lol.

Thanks EDC!

Carrying on. As any self respecting Steel Legion infantry should be, my company is fully armored with chimeras. All 3 platoons and the command Hq come up to just under 1500 with essential wysiwyg load out. Big investment but it's a fluffy and powerful core army that's can be supported with alot of different options in say a 2000 pointment match. On to the pics, here are the command chimeras:

Thanks Apollinaire!

I'm waiting on my Steel Legion to arrive in Steel City so until then I'm switching gears to the Catachans. This is a heavy armor company based mainly on the old metal models (which i love) and Schaffers last chancers, who I think match the look of the old Catachans perfectly. Lots of paint tests, weapon swaps and last minute conversions on these fellas so hang with me and let me know if you have any ideas. The theme is "old school Catachan", so non-standard equipment and oop vehicles and Veteran's galore. After all, Catachans make due.

Next up is the first of the superheavies. This is 1 of 2 Stormlords and is heavily modified, "Metalus Gravis". Probably going to be the command tank as I don't see myself putting as much effort into the others. Thanks for looking!

So along with as many free hand tattoos as I can manage my boys are going to have lots of shoulder pads. I think the plastic catachans especially look better with shoulder pads. That said, I don't have many pads. So, just like a Catachan should, we improvise...


Also, got some air support on the way! Vulture 1 of 2

More tanks coming soon too. Thanks for looking!

@Pvt.Ben: Welcome Guardsman. *spits* For the Emperor. *cracks neck* *tightens bandana*

Got the first squad of rough riders put together. I know I can't be the only one who is tired of the Carnasours. Right? Also going to have 3 of these oop FW turrets count as Chimeras since they have no rules and they totally fit the Catachan sneaky trap theme. It'll take some leniency from opponents but the idea is that the boys have laid cunning traps throughout the battlefield. I'll try not to move them too much in game but if they do move, you just didn't have an accurate bead on it's location in the first place what do you think? Would you, as an opponent allow it?




I got more done on the birds too.




As always, thanks for dropping into my foxhole trooper.

Finished up the 2nd Stormlord and made progress on two out of 3 of the shadows. I'll post them up as I add the finishing Catachan touches.




Also, sarge got his flak armor in. He says he feels safer already!

Alrighty, first shadow is done. Not much to write home on in conversions with this one, just some sandbags and a convertible gun barrel, though just putting so many of these beasts together is getting grueling. Once the big tanks are done it'll be back to the infantry and the 2nd vulture. So the modelling march continues and hopefully my paints arrive soon so I can get these big bad Catachans painted up and ready for the field.

Vendetta squadron got put back together after getting busted up pretty bad in the move. Complete reassembly in one case. Lots of little conversions and fixes but nothing to get too excited about I think. Getting the gumption to throw the 2nd vulture together. We'll see if I can get it started today, I have my doubts.

Aeronautica officers assembled. Actually I finished assembly on both 1500 point platoons but I've undercoated some and done tests on others, so they don't look very photogenic so I'll save it for a layer of paint.

Ok here's the group shot of progress so far on the super heavies. 2,000 points in heavy armor and now in 8th a totally legitimate army. Would you play against this army? I feel like winning at objectives is going to be hard and that my army would be able to be critically damaged easily enough to where maybe this army would be terrible. I really don't know. Any Knights players out there with experience using LOW armies? Any C&C on the models or the army or guard in general is definately welcome.

Hi,

I like all the conversions you've got in the army. That's what guard is all about to me, personalising everything.

The super heavies are my favourites, especially the use of sandbags as ablative armour.

keep up the good work!

@howie: Cheers trooper! *smashes grog mugs together obnoxiously*

Next up is the 5th tank in the company. This is the last known Graia pattern shadowsword in the Catachan regiment, possibly in the galaxy. This very light version of the shadowsword was designed by the orbital forces of Graia to provide heavy support for orbital defence forces and drop troops. It is unknown how the Graian priests were able to mount a stable volcano cannon on such a light frame but the absolute rarity of the vehicle makes It impossible to study, especially since the Catachans won't let anyone near it. It is assumed that the Catachan regiment came to possess it in the aftermath of the failed defence of the forgeworld by Orks. While the regiment maintains that it was given as a gift by the Graia techpriests for their valiant albeit illfated defence of the forgeworld, it is equally possible that the regiment simply looted the abandoned or damaged vehicle while falling back from the doomed space station forges. In either case it would be impossible to know for sure. It is assumed however that the Catachans maintain the tank themselves as is evinced by the copious ad hoc hull reinforcement.
















Still got to drill gun barells and fill some gaps around the sandbags but I'm pretty happy with this.

First squad together and beginning to get painted. Ways to go yet. Tryed out lots of color schemes. So stay tuned for repainting in the chosen grey camos. "The Bucaneers" are known for dual wielding pistols with the same proficiency as assault rifles. Stolen pistols usually.

These will count as gryphonne chimeras and a manticore.



More infantry got assembled as well to fill the list gaps left by the collection of metals models. "Elites among the Catachans" is still the theme here. As always c&c is appreciated greatly.

Cheers Pvt.Benjamin! Thanks for the kind words!

I have some group shots today of the 2 Veteran platoons. I'm happy to say they are almost completely assembled except for the Hellraisers 2nd Vulture. I'm getting pumped to do it though, it's just kind of a beast of a model and I wanted to get the infantry off the build table first. Once i finish the 2nd vulture its on to serious painting. For those interested, each of these armies are 1500 points and will have a shadow with them for 2,000 point games. I'm looking forward to hitting the tabletop with something a little different from the usual infantry squad spam that most guard armies roll with. After all, we aren't most guard armies, we're Catachan! *spits*

Harker's Hellraisers:

Thanks for taking a look and as always any questions or comments are appreciated. Happy hunting boys and girls! For the Emp'ror and all that. *spits and shifts cigar*

The 2nd Vulture for the Hellraisers is coming together. Narrowly missed slicing my finger on some flash and then immediately Somehow managed to drill a hole into my finger with the pin drill. So, rather than bleed, i patched it with super glue hehe. Who else has a hobby field dressing rn? I can't be the only one lol!

Got some work done on the bases for The Flyboys. I've decided to make this a different theme from the Hellraisers since the only time they'll be on the field together is for games over 4,000 points because the heavy armor is 2500. All my Chaos and Xeno armies are either these Urban Ruins or Badlands themes too so the boys here will match as opposing forces .... and I'm sure never as allies...





Actually, on 2nd thought, I may need to keep the bases theme uniform through the army, and I like the Badlands theme. So, green fatigues and Badlands bases it is.
