Thanks Joe.

8 months with no updates? Sounds about my speed. Here's some of what I'm working on right now:

I made an Imperial Guard army when the pandemic was first hitting, but they ended up looking a bit blobby/blurry as the uniform/fatigues cloth color and the armor color were kinda same-y. I've decided to depart from that radically by painting their armor orange, and I like the result. If the painting looks sloppy, that's because it is sloppy, there is a lot of cleanup and detailing yet to do.

Here are my two Skitarii Marshals.

Oh yes, it's definitely not mostly painted as-is

Some of the metal trim and stuff needs to be picked out, and some lights, and maybe black on the corset. Mostly metal and green-grey.

Main colors and conversion work done on these five here. They are plague marines, one of the last units to round out the Iron Warriors.

I know, I need to push more of these models through to the detail step! I get distracted by new conversion ideas pretty easily.

Trying out some different shoulders for the Allarus terminators. I never liked their default shoulder pads, but I'm not sure if any of my variations are actually better yet.

Thanks Olthannon, hopefully it continues to shape up well. Here's some profile views of the potential conversion placement/height:








I think I like the taller, shorter version best. Original chimera for reference.

In a brilliant move to make use of an old unfinished Skaven project AND jump on the Tau bandwagon simultaneously, I present the not-entirely-original concept of space Skaven:

I could have absolutely sworn I replied to this ages ago. Hey nevermind. I agree with stouter, taller profile of your tank best.

Love the space skaven! Interesting the newer Skaven aesthetic has a similar "Eastern" vibe that matches the Tau.

That's a good point, the thigh armor/skirts on the plastic stormvermin kind of perfectly mirrors the tau thigh armor.

Ok, progress:













The parts filling in the gaps/propping it up aren't at 100% yet, but you can see how the part fits on:

1. build the front and front/top cabin of a goliath truck
2. put track guards on the chimera

3. file flat a little bit on the track guard where the rivets/flange/whatever would conflict with the goliath's circular weapon mount, and a bit around the front track guard so it creates a vertical face for the front of the goliath parts to fit flush against




EDIT: for better instructional image

I'm happy with how this is coming together, I might try to lower it a couple millimeters, but it's basically as it should be. Next step is filling in the empty space and weapons.

Thanks, I actually use super glue pretty much exclusively. The reason for this is so I can break things apart more easily if I decide I don't like something.

The Chimera conversion has been dropped down a couple more millimeters, I'm pretty happy with it as it is now, had to shave down a tiny bit of the track guard region on the front:



For the Skaven Tau, I think I have settled on a base color for them, Krieg Khaki:



And for the Custodes, I've picked a base cloth color, Barak-Nar Burgundy:

Trying out the White Gold from Vallejo's Liquid Gold / Liquid Silver range. Technically it's a Liquid Silver range item. First time using alcohol based paints, they seem a bit tricky but I like them. Here are a couple coats, not totally covered.
