From the ashes of the Photobucket apocalypse rises my new thread
 

 
Thanks for checking it out
 
While there will be items on here from a variety of sci-fi manufactures, all are tied into the same 40k head cannon
e.g the Mantic warpath verse is a number of sectors south of the Segmentum Tempestus and west of the ultima segmentum founded by rouge traders.
There are Remnant fleets of Xenos (and sometimes human races) that were evicted from their planets by the Imperium during the great crusade.
Predators are still hunting anything they can, they love Catachan and hunting space marines.
Every now and again a strange person in a blue box shows up goes “nope” and leaves again.
 
I find I’m more productive/focused when I do a thread like this.
 
So these are things I’m working on/ have worked on
 
Albion Rifles Imperial Guard
“The Albion Rifles are a regiment from the united kolonies(there’s a reason its spelt with a K) of the Albion, unlike other regiments from Albion the Rifles recruit from Albion Prime, Icy Caledonia, the arid murphy’s world and the moon of Gwlad.”[/]
 
UK (mostly WW2) inspired imperial Guard
Spoiler:
.





Albion S.A.S
[i]“Who dares Wins"
“The S.A.S regiment has a heritage going back to the first colonisation of the Albion system and even Terra itself.
For decades before the dark they were the elite of Albion's military, and that's all that is still recorded of them just the initials a motto and barley two sentences.

No one knows what happened to them, many think they were discarded by the techno knights of the noble families during the dark.
When Guilliman brought the great crusade to the Albion and united the Colonies they were just a footnote in a militarum history textbook.
It wasn't until 1000 years later that they would be reformed.

Major David Stirling during Waaagh Mary, recognised the need for an elite Commando unit to perform the tasks high command would wait 11 years for the Astartes to arrive for, after a lot of arguing eventually Stirling got his own way.
Named because he remembered the motto from his days in the Scolar, the S.A.S performed lightning raids and assassinations crippling the Ork invasion leading to Albion's forces eradicating the greenskins before the Astartes arrived.

The legend restored it has only grown since."
Spoiler:



 
Got quite a few tanks that arnt in the pic to finish but I'm waiting on an airbrush purchase (got the cash saved just need to get one) before I do it.
I’m going to aim for the UK woodland camo look on them.
 
Deadzone Enforcers

 
I-pad armour on the standard (Mook) enforcers with the special characters in colourful armour matching who their based on.
 
Deadzone rebs

 
Tried to get them looking as individual as possible, so they’re a rag tag group. (Think serenity and Star Wars rebels)
 
Very Happy with how the Strider came out

 
 
Xenomorphs



 
This is all the Xenos i have, despite the poor effort by Prodos with the treatment of me as a backer the minis are fantastic.
 
It’s a shame the company is a bunch of lying T!”£$
 
Infinity PanO

 
Ultramarines

 
lots to do and add, but should have a big update with the DI boxed set.
 
Their all true scale btw (in 1/56 scale 7 foot would be 38mm and they would be taller if stood upright)

Vs primaris

 
My stance is that Primaris marines are just true scale marines in rules and proportions so I’m very happy with them being released.
 
I don’t mind that the Rhino looks small either as real APCs are on the small side too.
 
Deathwatch
 
 
Only Cassius so far but more will come, I’ve got Deathwatch overkill game and start collecting boxes to use to fill the role.
 
Thanks again for checking my thread out.
 
Please drop a comment if you like what you see or have any feedback, I really appreciate it and it helps keep be motivated.
 
Other project threads ill be bumbling about in shortly.

Thanks for the side-by-side comparison. I really like the Primaris Marines, and like them even more now. Of course, my complete lack of interest in restarting 40K will save me from having to buy any...

Now showing Wizard Study scatter terrain from Mantic!

Painting total as of 3/9/2019: 35 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 28 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain

Painting total as of 12/31/2018: 220 plus three sets of Osgiliath ruins and Great Cthulhu and a Japanese peasant farmhouse and a rice paddy and a whole bunch of resin Frostgrave terrain.

Ultramarine Reinforcements

Finished 4 more ultramarines




Pretty happy with the knee pad checks



Conversions in progress

Can't decide if I should replace the sword with an Ultramarine Gladius and if I should get some of those leather tabard things to put over his crotch.

Not a fan of the stock poses so tried to get this one to look like he's jetted past something and is using his foot to do a hand break turn

Necromunda Orlock and an adventure in stripping

No not that stripping you filthy boy…..

With New-cromunda announced it was time for me to strip the paint off of my old necromunda minis.




Don't judge me!

Their really old

All to be stripped minis in a bath of detol to wash away my sins



I also finished off one of my favourite minis from Necromunda that I picked up last year.




I like to think I've got better at painting since I did the old mundo minis.

That ganger does look nice. I like the denim-and-leather look.

You're a brave man for showing your older paint jobs. I can hardly stand to even look at anything I did more than, say, 10 years ago. I look forward to seeing the updated models.

Great work on the ganger, and don't judge your old work too harshly, it's all progress to where you are today. Loving the Marine above, but really not liking the gun shields thing, just daft, but each to their own, you may convert me once your done.

Oh and thanks mate, I just spent far too long staring at a male ass to be comfortable now, need a manly man fix quick.

Brilliant job on that denim.

Cheers cam, I'm indifferent about the gun shields generally if they weren't attached like the multiparty ones I'd leave them off.

if your still in need of a manly fix I can take some rear pics of my infinity minis if you want

Those Ultramarines are looking really good. The guy with the checks on his knee, especially. The subtle weathering looks great. You did a very nice job on that ganger as well. I'm jealous of how well his face came out. Nice work.

Thanks for the offer Dude but I'm after the wyrd pyromaniac, Kal jerico and Mad donna all of which are pretty rare and go for more on eBay than I'm willing to pay for them at the moment, if you've got any of them you want to get rid of id be a Douche not to encourage you to Evil bay them seen Kal and donna for for £40.....

I'm hoping GW bring some of them back with the reprint program

Joe’s first Plague marine

A slight break from painting smurfs but more DI.




Went with the usual green scheme but dirtied it up a lot, rust in the steel, lots of typhus corruption and (can't even say it so I can't spell it) oxide on the brass.

Thanks for dropping by

I've still got a Mad Donna in the blister pack, it's a bit dinged up, but I got it for about that price a couple years ago. I never got Kal Jericho, not sure of the pyro.

I'm at work right now and they have started to block imgur pics, so I can't give you feed back at the moment on the plague marine.

Really nice work throughout your recent stuff. Are the Ultras that light in hand, or is it the lighting? Nice old-school touch with the checks on the kneepad as well there.

I like the Orlock ganger as well. The red over their old scheme of white tabards adds interest to the scheme. It'll be good to see their resurrection.

Wow long time since I posted here and a long time since I finished a mini

First finished mini of 2018






The blight hauler is soo cute...

Where have I been

I went to the hobby meca last year.

Warhammer world is pretty epic, a must visit if you can get there

I’ve been doing bits of hobby but I just haven’t had the time to take pics and post here and also interact with other threads on here (I don’t feel right only posting my stuff wanting feedback and then not giving comments out in return)

I’ve also been trying to get some of my friends into the hobby with a softly softly approach was a pretty big deal for me as im quite private about my toy soldiers IRL

Thanks for reading here’s some Necromunda bases
