A Busy Weekend

As I mentioned in the discussion below a previous post, I have a slight case of 'Praetorian fatigue' creeping in.

To that end, I'm going to attempt to spread out into some other small projects and catch up on bits 'n' bobs that have been on the backburner for a while.


Relatively new are Kawl, Canoness Verydian and a Krieg conversion provided by Zzzzzz as part of a bits swap.

The Tech Priest I bought cheaply at the PAW 2017 Bring and Buy.

Boss Zagstruck and some Storm Boyz from PAW 2016!

The greenstuff ferrets (berets) were added by me to add to a previous squad.

Time to finish off the Kromlech WWII british Commando inspired Orks.


Throw in some MkIII Heresy era UMs and I should be kept ticking over until Gulliman arrives.

Another Platoon Complete.

As per the title, another 55 strong unit to add to the horde.

Please Mantic, can I have my 3 months overdue Tunnelers.







To avoid Praetorian fatigue, I'll be switching back to Horus Heresy Ultramarines next.  The MkIIIs are now complete with their Forge World pads and have been sprayed.

A Cheeky Little Fellow!

I visited the Plymouth PAW 2017 show this weekend gone and picked up this little resin chappie.  It's an alternate sci-fi dwarf engineer from Gydran Miniatures ( http://www.gydran.com ), a  not-Squat Tech Priest if you will.

Oh the options we have.


Gydran also have a Kickstarter on the go if armoured sci-fi dwarves are your thing.

Well, They Finally Did It!

Looks like my Ultrasmurfs will be led by Papa Ultra Smurf in the near future.

 
I may have to learn how to paint flames!

Tunneller Progress. Now Just Waiting On Mantic To Deliver

I'm not exactly powering through the next 30 but, having been stuck away from home over the weekend I have managed to get boots, flesh, helmets and weapons painted up.

Shameless Kickstarter Plug!!!


Please look into this.

I really want some fancy Machine Gun Steam Horses.

If this one happens, I'll be walking like a proud gorilla!

It's IMPERIAL GUARD not Astra Militarum...to this old Luddite anyway.

I've finally got around to resetting my working week  paint station and will, over the next couple of weeks be adding to my IG army.  Personally I don't class the models as in the army until they are painted.


As previously featured, I have the Rausenberg Seige Corps and Praetorian Highlanders squads to paint up.  I'm still patiently waiting for the Reaper Bones Sledgehammers to turn up.


Also on a behind schedule Kickstarter are the Mantic Tunnelers that will provide transport for the alternate scheme Praetorian platoon shown below.

Additionally, there are another three squads base sprayed to make a full 55 strong platoon of Tunnelers.


I still have the finishing touches to add to the full platoon waiting to join the Redcoat ranks.




Last but not least is the Plasma Obliterator.  I was lucky enough to find one of these courtesy of Wicor Models in Portchester, a lovely, friendly model shop that should be on the rounds of anyone in the Pompey area.
