In the meantime I need to find such toy pipes...


Don't know about Germany but in US Amazon I found a few sets in the $20 to $30 range. They're also apparently on Ali Express.

Some more productivity to celebrate the Stay-Cation



WIP still but getting there.





Staff cars are done and look GOOD.

So it's been about a year since I arrived in Cairo, time to take a little look back at what I've gotten done.



Arbites Class of 2020



Penal Legion



Imperial Navy adjuncts.

More big pictures to come, Arbites Army, Genestealer Cult, Imperial Air Force and some stray space ships.

It's easier if you don't paint them that well

Anyway, so after the class of 2020, I figured I would do a group photo and broke out the folding table.



I'm gonna need a bigger table.








I'll do that math later but 200? 300 infantry? 10+ tanks? 20 Cavalry? Heaven only know how many points.

In case you're wondering, the main divisions are:
Judges - 70+ 2nd edition models, count as Krieg
Gendarmerie - 50+ models, count as Cadians
Penal Legion 1 Data Slaves - 30+ models, Count as Krieg
Penal Legion 2 Jungle Work Camp - 30+ models, Count as Catachans
SWAT (Sky Warden Attack Team) - 20+ models, count as Scions
Planetary Security - 30+ models, count as conscripts
Motorpool - 10+ tanks

Plus assorted random units and mad ideas.



Like say an ambulance and fire truck.

But the table lacked room for the fortifications so...



Fortress Precinct!





And y'know, I still have 20 Necromunda Enforcers and 10 more Van Saar to build...

Not bad for a 2 year project Maybe I'll actually play in a year or two. There has to be at least ONE competitive build in there.

The TIE tank would be brilliant. Either way, that’s an inspiring conversion.

All this talk about the 'TIE Tank' reminds of a very early computer video game some kind soul sent us during Desert Shield called "A-10 Warthog". It was a flight simulator and had various missions programmed into it. Unfortunately, none us could actually play well enough to make the thing fly and do whatever it was supposed to do. But you could set the player mode to "indestructible plane, unlimited ammo" (essentially: Pre-Beginner level, so you could learn to play well enough to survive flak and dogfights and such) which allowed us to drive the plane over the ground, shooting up tanks. You could drive right through them and because you were indestructible, keep right on playing.

So now I have visions of an up-armored TIE Fighter with treads on the bottom of the vertical wings driving along, shooting up Leman Russ tanks.

Rock on, Kid- rock on!

And the last of the class of 2020, Unity!

Unity is a registered faith-based social welfare organization dedicated to the so-called 'four arms' of Unity:

Acceptance
Forgiveness
Family
Vengence

Unity welcomes all Children of the Father from the Highest Spire to the Lowest Sprawl. Embrace Unity, and Unity will embrace you. With four arms.



WIP obviously, still have 20 Cultists of the Abyss (not to be confused with Servants of the Abyss), 10 Golitaths and 2 Tauroxes to build. And then the Meat Wall is complete.

It flies by uh, anti gravity and stuff. Whatever the heck makes Impusors and Falcons fly, that's what makes this thing fly. OK?

I had that exact game, it was a lot of fun. I still remember the campaign, the final mission was a Soviet push across West Germany and you would just run out of bombs and ammo long before they run out of tanks.

As for a TIE tank, Lucas already beat you.

If you ever need a Unity teacher for some reason, you could do worse than basing him on this guy:

20 more cultists, now at 180 neophytes alone plus hybrids and whatnot.

OK. I may have a problem. And that problem is I'm still shy of 200!

I've been trying to get the four arms perfect but now I think I should just change them every time I say them.

So I've made jokes before about having guardsmen old enough to vote (plastic Cadians are from what, 2002?).

I just realized the RT guys are 32, old enough to drive, vote, drink, join the army, marry a stripper, father a kid, find out she was sleeping with your best friend while you were on deployment, wonder if the kid is really yours want to divorce her but can't because it would break your son's heart and so endure a loveless sham with no escape.



Yeah, these guys have seen some things no man should ever face.

In an unrelated note they have also been in combat.

Got a classic patriarch with half a throne and no back

But when I put him on his new throne he immediately leaned back like he was chilling out. Which works so well for him.

No mistakes! Only happy accidents!
