thanks for the read, on a related matter...it is always totally overwhelming to read such immense casualty numbers... who in today's times would march into such a mincer on his own free will? i mean nowadays you would now the outcome and your chances for survival...

The exiled Arbites vet, who just returned to the city from the northern wastes is a great conversion. Don't think it's the flash, it's mostly the focus, which is slightly behind the model.

Is that what you see? I was thinking more along the lines of:

"Did you get a load of Frank's get up?"
"How could I miss the smell? Does he ever wash that thing?"
"He still doing his whole 'one man bringing the law to the Ash Wastes' thing? I mean he's investigating art forgery on level 77 for the Emp's sake"
"I think he's just building a myth, y'know laying the groundwork for a book deal after he retires"

Nah, I have an incredibly stupid over the top background for him I'll get around to writing up with pictures one of these days.

Some recent progress.



Escorted by a veteran of the Necromundan 88th, Agent [Redacted] hunts carriers of the Xeno Virus in the pipe-filled recesses of the underhive.



Eraser Squads do not exist. If they did exist they certainly would not wear civilian clothes and secretly assassinate influential critics of the Imperium with weapons that literally vaporize the body leaving no clue as to their fate.



Hmm. If you leave off the wings, engines, turret, air scoop and guns the Storm Raven makes for a fairly OK helicopter type thing.

New flyers should be interesting!

And on a different note, I visited the gallery section of my account for the first time since I'm on this forum. I didn't know people could comment on your pics and I'm very sorry, because I missed your two comments

Still not a fan of this model. Even with wheels it still looks about 25% too short, the cabin could not possibly hold 10 models.

I had 2 from the Tempestus start collecting box and I'll be using it for my Genestealer Cult. But it's just a bad model.

I like your flyers and eraser models that don’t exist .
I also agree on the truck. I think they should keep the cab of the truck but then remove the rear compartment and make it an Imperial 18 wheeler truck. Then create a trailer for it which could either be a flat bed for transporting tanks and supplies, or an armored box to hold munitions or a command center.

No argument- best plastic IG ever; brings a lump to my throat of nostalgic melancholy. I miss the good ole days, sometimes. Great job, and I continue to like how your toy pipe set has come out- excellent conversion!

So a few years back I was looking for the perfect Imperial Troop Shuttle. I still have the plastic storage bins and bits sitting on a shelf to make one day.

But then I found this...



A not~Helicarrier about a foot long (I estimate) big enough to carry some cargo crates or a tank or two on its deck and infantry in its hull.

I found it on an Egyptian site but haven't seen it on any US sites so far.

Amazon.in has the whole line and better photos.

Inshallah it will be a quick and easy addition to the Space Port project.

Well I'm happy, already ordered another one.



The plastic is a bit cheap and light, but the design is good. I'm thinking one will be an army transport, moving troops and tanks around the planet. The other will be a civilian cargo ship, I'll cover the deck with crates and barrels and it'll be sort of a tramp freighter of the skies.

Can't wait to see what you do with this. Will you build a bit of a side wall? I'm picturing the DDay Troop Carriers, or the Gorgon Assault FW vehicle.. The front does seem angled well to represent a "ramp" of sorts.

Flip the bits bin upside down on top of that puppy and you have a flying Goliath troop carrier. Just sayin'.

Great find with lots of possibilities.

I've wrestled Helicarrier 2 from the girls and gotten started.

While the Helicarrier can handle one Chimera/Rhino type vehicle fine, I really wanted them to carry two.



So...



Remove the control tower, move it back to rest on the heliport fill in the gaps with plasticard...

i would suggest adding some sort of securing mechanism... like bands or clamps... could even be a magnetic system...

I'll be adding thin strips of plasicard as straps, this is definitely a more low tech sort of operation.

Nice carrier! Straps would probably look good, chains or steel ropes are used on tanks on semi trailer tank carriers IIRC.

No, I won't look, if I can buy that carrier in Germany, no, I won't look, if I can buy that carrier in Germany...

That heli-carrier really is a very good find. I can imagine reading about them in a Gaunt's Ghosts novel.

Been a while since I did an Inquisitor and his loyal band of weirdos.



Delaque Necromunda gang obviously, the kit has it's drawbacks, everyone is a head taller than other humans, no one is aiming just sort of pointing their guns in the air. But for an Inquisition band it works. So far we have the Inquisitor (trying to decide what goes in his hand, might just keep it empty), his loyal #1 a former Rogue Trader with a cool hat, his priest, his psyker, his crazy knife girl, his circular saw-handed carpenter, and his scribe. His two gunners, his tech priest, his medic, and the Thing in the Vault which he does not talk about are still coming.

Not totally sold on the elf head, but I like how it invokes the pointy hood without looking too KKK.
