What To Do With Some Time Off?

I'm slowly building up to attacking some projects for the festive period but shown below are some ongoing items.

Two squads of MkIII Marines are now built and awaiting the Forge World Ultramarine shoulder pads before being sprayed.

The latest limited Forge World model waiting some undercoating.

New eBay purchases.  Show at the back though are my first blatant recasts.  These ones are where some enterprising fellow  has amended the Grenade Launcher model to toting a Plasmagun instead.

Please note that I, in no way advocate recasting.  If the Praetorians were still in production by GW I would not have purchased these but, as it stands, I must admit that they did have a certain amount of novelty value to me..

 A Victoria Miniatures Captain Caine model that came free with Rausenburg Seige Corps order.  AS he was resin (and Free) I trimmed his hair and head so that the pith helmet could be worn.

A Made To Order Solar Macharius.

Tonight I'll be putting the female Seige Corps together and tomorrow, weather dependant, I'll be undercoat spraying the Plasma Obliterator I recently picked up.


  1. Lovely stuff mate. And with recasts, its a bit like that. Sometimes with eBay its also unclear if yo are getting the genuine article or not.

  2. I've never knowingly bought recasts until now but seeing as I've made many an eBay purchase over the last 10 years I'd be fooling myself if I tried to say there weren't some in my collection.
