Hello again everyone. I have been absent from the forums and the hobby in general for awhile. Real life sucks sometimes though, and I needed a little bit of a distraction from some of said suck...

I was inspired by the Kill Team release: Solid rules, lots of options, and best of all small teams mean I can go all out on the models. Plus, they can all do double duty in Inq28 and RPG sessions. So, here is the first Kill Team that I am making, the Grey Knights.

1. Justicar






2. Zealot






3. Knight






4. Psycannon






5. Incinerator






Group:



All are in various stages of WIP, but all will have a dagger, a tilt shield, a book, and a helmet as standard. I'm still deciding whether I want to use the tilt shields they are shown with here or use blank ones to have individual, painted heraldry on them. All of the melee focused will have a vambrace from the Stormcast Eternal line to act as a sort of shield, and another place for detailing. I will eventually add sculpted detail onto their legs as well.

For paint, I am thinking of forgoing the traditional scheme and painting them somewhat darker. I intend these to be a sort of Knights Errant group, and hell, maybe even a test run for Primaris Knights, who knows. I am thinking a darker silver for the base armor, a metallic black for the lettering and most of the detailing and a dark bronze for some details. Black and red as supplemental colors for some details. Not sure yet, and that is honestly awhile off, so I have lots of time to think.

Bodies are Primaris Intercessors from the Dark Imperium or Know No Fear boxed sets. GK details are from the Grey Knights Strike Squad or Paladins. Knives are from the Death Company set. Zealot's head is a modified Blood Angel Sgt (I think) and the Incense burner detail on his backpack is from a Dark Angels kit (again, I think...) Lots of bits seller purchases over the course of this year, lol.

Next to be built will be another Knight with Falchions, a Knight with a Psilencer, and a Knight Commander.

I can promise updates will be slow and sporadic, but will happen. My wife has been in the hospital since February and won't be home for a couple months yet. She is getting better but there is still a long difficult road ahead of us so my time for hobby will be limited.

As always, I'd love to hear what you folks think. Thanks for looking.

This, boys and girls, is why you don't forget your plastic miniatures in your putty oven.



I think I can salvage the bodies, and maybe the Psychic Hoods, but the Daemonhammer, the Force Sword, the Daggers, and the GK collars are toast. *sigh*

Not exactly the kind of update I wanted to post...

Ouch, that sucks.. You had some great models there, hope you're able to rebuild. The only one I'm not sold on is the incinerator guy, his right arm is definitely not where it should be, anatomically speaking. But maybe it's just the poster putty assembly?

Thanks. I'll definitely be able to rebuild. It will just be costly both bits and time wise. Incinerator definitely suffers from putty-itis. I will make sure everything lines up nicely before final assembly.

Update:
Brotherhood Champion






Got my KT Commanders expansion and decided to make this guy now instead of later. He will be painted in a more traditional GK scheme of silver, gold, black, white, and red. He will have the accessories common to all my GK though: Book, Helmet, Dagger. Still not entirely sure about the hooded head. I think I am keeping it. Or at least one like it. Need to find or make a shouty hooded head. He is the leader after all. lol His pose is also temporary and will change a little bit once I get more of his parts done.

Zealot



Not a terrible lot of change there. I have always found it a tiny bit odd that the Grey Knights didn't have Aquila on them anywhere really, so I decided to add them. Since he is the religious nut, this guy will get one of the more obvious ones.

Justicar




Switched the Iron Halo from his backpack to his Psychic Hood. You can also see the magazine that I will be using on all of the team's Storm Bolters. It is a magazine from a Primaris Intercessor.

That's it for now. As always, thanks everyone for looking.

Nice recovery, sorry to see some things had to be scraped but it is coming together nicely.

Primarius seem to be a great start for anyone doing a marine Kill Team, the size and posing really helps.

Thanks. Yeah, it happens. It is a reminder to be more careful in the future too. An expensive reminder...

The Primaris Marines are the kit I've been waiting for since the first plastics way back in Rogue Trader days. Their proportions are excellent, and the posing is miles better than the standard Marines. This will be my go to for all Marines from now on.

Hope to have an update later today. Thanks again for stopping by.

A little later than I had hoped, but a small update:





Pretty much what the final pose will be. Lots of little details left to sculpt, but I am pretty happy with where he is at now. I normally hate tabards on figures, but I wanted some cloth to tie in with the hood, and I think this will work well.

I think he is obviously GK enough to keep the hood, but I am afraid of him having too much the look of the Dark Angels about him. Perhaps when I use another head under the hood I won't need to worry so much about that. We'll see I guess.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.

So, I haven't had any time to do physical hobby work, since my wife was back in the hospital for a bit and work has ramped up. I have, however, had plenty of spare time for 3D modelling since I can take my tablet anywhere pretty much.

Ganger:



Inspired by this piece of JB's artwork:


I imagine he is a former Goliath ganger turned Bounty Hunter. Or perhaps he is a member of a Venator gang.

Not looking to be 100% accurate to the art, but to make a piece inspired by it that fits into the modern N17 aesthetic. Still very early WIP.

I would love to have some ideas on what to do for his off hand. I was thinking of making it some sort of gauntlet that could serve as a power weapon or power fist. Thoughts?

Arbites:


Going to try to mix and update the original Confrontation Arbites and Necromunda Arbites. Very early WIP.


One of my all time favorite game systems is Supersystem and I have used the supers from that game as creative exercise material. Redesigns and updates to the original figures, but trying where possible to include some aspect of the original.

Artemis:


I'm thinking that some of the Supers of the world are actually Avatars of various Gods running around once more. I've tried to incorporate some of the historical symbols of Artemis. Currently shown is the belt with the phases of the moon. I want to incorporate a stag somehow too.

Original Figure:


Perun:


As with Artemis, so with Perun. I tried to make the costume a bit more medieval Rus (but only a bit). Oak leaves shown here, and a few other symbols to come.

Original Figure:


The Siberian:


Leader of The Red Patriot movement and fan of 80's era USSR. I'm trying for a pseudo Spetznaz look for him.

Original Figure:



And last for now, the Cavalier:


Like many here I was an huge fan of the D&D cartoon when I was young. This is my idea what an older more experienced Eric might look like.

That's it for now. Thanks everyone for stopping by.

Edit:
Forgot Bertha Bestraufung from Mordheim:


I want to add a touch of AoS to her and her Sisters.
