Flying Warrior Nuns

Anvil have pulled some extra novelties out of the party bag.....




Just a wee bit different from Imperial Guard.

Shameless Warrior Nun Kickstarter Plug

I've already mentioned the KS from Anvil for their "Daughters of the Burning Rose" project.

The KS is funded and more fun stuff is being displayed and added all the time.

I'm more into the sci fi versons of the Nuns but, if you want, you could probably come up with rules for some alternate Renaissance female bodyguard for Leonardo da Vinci.....

Now unlocked, the concept art for an assassin.


Familiars.  Cute puppy, bionic ferret and a cyber panther with a frickin' eyeball laser (in my opinion)

Test print for an Abbess.  To my mind she's St Praxedes from the original GW Sisters of Battle codex.

Psyker, witch, heretic?  Whatever fits into your chosen games system. Well, maybe not Black Powder or Bolt Action!

Primaris Ultramarines

As well as working on the Sanctuary, I was able to make some progress with the Ultramarines update.

I even managed to get them all on bases.



All of these Marines are either from the Dark Imperium box or are the easy build snapfit types.  I'm not sure I'm willing to cough up for the squad boxes especially as, being a rare gamer, I'm not necessarily interested in going for the optimum/ power builds.






More work to look forward to when I get back home!

Gothic Armoured Nuns Kickstarter


Roll up, roll up for a Warrior Nuns inspired Kickstarter from Anvil.

I'm in for a pledge to tide me over until GW deliver the Sisters of Battle in 2019.  I see no reason why Sisters can't have different variants of power armour. It might even get me back into repainting some of my stripped down original metal models.

Return To The Donkey Sanctuary


As the project that will not go away continues, I hit on the idea of spicing up the Sanctuary model with donkeys. 

Stepping forward to the Bed Slat of Preparation are five of Magister Militum's 28mm finest. 


Rush job required on these. Back to work tomorrow.

House Mortan Walks.

Another rush job complete while I'm on another flying visit to the UK but four Armigers complete with just some tidying up to do.
 
Now, where are those 20 Skitarii?

Daddy, When I Grow Up...

...can I have an Avenger gatling cannon?
 
That's the broad brush trial scheme for the first Armiger complete.
 
Dependant on the Codex, there may be some tinkering to do based on any potential rank structure amongst the Armigers but I'm happy so far.

Giant Freaking Robots....

...as the GW advertising declared.
 
Oh well, two copies of Forgebane later and I have a head start on the new Knight Codex.
 
Four Armigers ready to join House Mortan along with the two Knights already built and, more than likely, one of the new Castellan Knights.

The Donkey Sanctuary!

I don't know if anybody thought I was joking but I give you... 

The Donkey Sanctuary. 

This is being put together to help my daughter out with the project for her animal care course. 

The plywood has been covered in chinchilla dust (bathing sand not ground down critters. It's my basing material of choice) and PVAd to seal the sand in.  The buildings are basic foam board.  The roofs are out of shot being painted. 











It's early days and there are refinements and painting to do but I never thought I'd ever model up  a gift shop or donkey isolation area (as in medical isolation not punishment routines).  

Of course I'm now tempted to do my own home brew version of the recent Wild Geese prison camp Kickstarter:
 
 
and available soon at retail from Sally 4th:
 
 
 
One the project is done, I could always reclaim the boards back as Rough Rider stables......

Other Projects On The Go....


Well, if it wasn't for pesky sunshiney but bloody freezing weather I could have got more done....





What else is on the go?

Terrain and an easy build Primaris Dreadnought!






 
Tomorrow I'll show some top line Donkey Sanctuary modelling I kid you not!

Tunnelers Complete

I made full use of the dry stretch yesterday and went spray mad.
 
As a result, the tree machines are ready at a tabletop standard.
 
I am very happy with the way these machines have turned out.  Mantic may have to rely on Kickstarter at present to fund their plastic vehicle production but if it gives good results.  Now I just need to reward an independent retailer to buy another two for the whole platoon to be mounted.  I've decided that the extended version will carry a Command Squad and an Infantry squad.
 
Why an independent retailer?  Mantic have had my money direct via KS.  Retailers also need to get the benefit from the resultant products.
 







What next?

I need to attack plastic terrain mountain plus I'm being pressganged into building a 3d model of a Donkey Sanctuary for a College project!
