Today's Winner of the Internet.

It goes to a picture from Games Workshop's new Imperial Guard blog, The Regimental Standard.

See as the Knight gives a thumbs up to his little Imperial Guard buddy!

Good Job I Bought The Long Haired Admiral A New Kitchen...

...otherwise I'd never get away with having this lot!!!

Unfortunately the dining room isn't wide enough for me to do anything other than use panorama on the phone to fit it all in.

Below is the new painted platoon I've managed to add to the army over this holiday period.

The Armoured Fist Platoon is now up to full strength with another squad and Chimera added.

A second wheeled Taurox for the Rifles veterans.

The Tunnelers are waiting for the Mantic Kickstarter to be fulfilled for their transports.

I love the new Tech-Priest but nothing will overtake my Squat Engineer.

No-one expects the (Spanish) Inquisition.

My painting will never do these guys justice but the models are just bursting with character.

(Available from Victoria Miniatures: )

As for the 'To Do' list...

Card and Necromunda Plastic Bulkhead Terrain Was The Business...

After completing the bunkers (apart from one that suffered a mishap and will need some extra work), I ventured into the loft to dog out the others.

The first release was the Firebase. A nifty little landing pad.

I never picked up the Bastion for some reason, but the Battle Bunker was the one I bought next.

Some White Dwarf insert barricades that came out at the same time as the Storm of Vengeance campaign pack.

The Imperial Guard Command Tower.

The power station from Storm of Vengeance.

The Orks even got in on the action but I never purchased this one either.

 And of course, some people are talented enough to improve on the original!

Some Nostalgic Old Schoolery

As I'm beginning the wind down to some time off at the end of next week, I broke out one of those long festering old projects this weekend.

As a result I have two of the five White Dwarf freebie card bunkers built with three to go.

I just have to pick up some plastic sheeting to mount them on.  After that I may dig out the other card and Necromunda bulkhead scenery that I have for a photo call.

New Victoria Miniatures - Female Imperial Guard

Roll Up, Roll Up!  Female Imperial Guard now available from Victoria Miniatures.

Come and get your not-Mordians.

I'm a little bit stoked to finally see these available but......

.....seeing as Victoria has shown in a work in progress for a greatcoat version, I shall probably wait for these so they can be led by......

....the Adepticon figure that was made available for general purchase for a short time last year.

Plus, they'll look good alongside the planned female gunners for the giant gun from the Reaper Bones Kickstarter.

Who knows, I may soon be able to do some female kilted Praetorian Highlanders as a side project.  It never ends.
