Hello once more, Warseer! Long-time lurker and lover of the site. I started a project log ages and ages ago, but that died quickly 'cos I apparently had some kind of mind-block and couldn't work out how to change the macro settings with my troglodytic fingers. Ah well, I'll have to retake those pics of the Ogryns I posted there later on in this plog.

Right, lets get started!

Here's my counts-as plasmagunner. This guy is made from a load of GW bits, guitar wire and the spring from a pen :D I figure his weapon is some kind of gauss weapon/railgun kind of deal.

Next up is some hammer-wielding probably-Command Squad guy. Still needs the gap in his hammer greenstuffed. Well...Milliputted.

More pics coming momentarily....

A Chaplain (I love hammers!) Don't worry, he's got a bolt pistol on there somewhere. His chestplate and tabard are from the AoBR cap'n who will be getting some love later when I can be bothered to do stuff.

My MAC-proxy and Ironclad will be coming up next. And I will improve my pic-taking as well, I have the light source in the wrong place :P

Here's proxy-MAC, the idea came from me wanting to make the Chapter Master of the Angry Marines, Temperus Maximus himself, but I had to change that because I only had one of the Oblit assault cannon:

He still needs lots of work. Needs some cables modelled under the chestplate, he needs some gubbins on the bit behind the drum-mag on his bolters.
He's my first attempt at truescale, but his proportions are a little bizarre. Out of the suit he'd probably look like a dementedly-shaped Taur Air caste >.> Ah well, better luck next time!

First Ironclad pic, he's made from the AoBR dread, a PP Khador Warjack and a load of other bits. Still needs the tread modelled on his back foot and his hammer will get a head-change once i find something suitable.

Cool plasma-weapon thingy, hope its removable for easier painting.
Not so sure about the spring on his backpack thought, seems a bit off.

Thanks Kyrios, I see what you mean, I'll have to take that off and maybe put something else there instead.

Dunno what happened there, I posted a load of other pics in more posts, but I guess they weren't approved or something. I'll try again tomorrow. Got some paints and things now so I'll try and get some painting done over the long weekend :D

Turns out the other posts just took a while to get approved :D
Right, it's a busy weekend (Thank Odin for bank holidays) so I'll be back in a few days with more progres....I hope.

Back with some more Marine pics, I'm more of a converter, but I'll try and get some motivation to paint :P

And a start of another guy. I doubt I want to risk slicing my fingers open trying to make a left-handed bolter-shooting-dude, so he might be a standard bearer or something.

Oh yes, to prove that I have painted at some point in the past, I will post some pics of my ongoing WIP Gorkamorka mob

My chav-Yoof in his hoodie/trackie combo, he goes by the name of Keef :P

And one of the Boyz

I know my painting isn't fantastic, but my camera is not helping matters. The Yoof has lighter skin than the Boy, but this doesn't show as well as it ought to.

Not much progress recently, kind of disheartening to get 170-odd views and only one reply :P

Anyways, here's some work on a Company Champion or HQ-type fella.

Dont take it personal mate, most people are probably drawn in here by your amazing Ironclad so they check back regularily to see if youve posted more pics on it!

Thanks, Trukson! I'd best get to work painting that one then. Now I'm worried xD I'm practising my painting right now, so hopefully it'll be up to scratch by the time I get to him ^^

Wise fwom your gwabe indeed!

So, I am back. Not a fantastic amount of stuff has happened, I have some plasticard and actual green stuff and paints now, so some new things have appeared. Still no work on the Ironclad yet, still wary of attempting it considering my painting. Anyway, on with the pics!

Proxy-MAC is painted. He was going to have an omega on that shield on his midriff (An upside-down Ultramarines U from the drop pod sprue), but my housemate who was going to give me it has gone, so I'll have to wait.

http://img249.imageshack.us/img249/7630/asdfgl096.jpg

And a group-shot. I apologise, I didn't realise some of thes models were so dusty. They're not all completely done, and some of them are just plain bad. Oh well!
More photos to come.

Thanks, darthpodge!

Here are some more pics of some other things in the works.

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6607/asdfgl089.jpg

A AoBR termie with a DA-sprue assault cannon and bionic arm.

http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/1732/asdfgl090.jpg

Close-ups of the bionics. I had a powerfist, a shoulderpad, but no arm, so I had to improvise.

A termie sergeant. Another example of having to improvise. No front plate for a termie, so had to rebuild the entire front from a power armour chestplate, Chaos Warrior helmet and power armour shoulder pad. He's in a dual-wielding John Woo-pose for the hell of it.

Next up, my squad that will accompany my Chaplain into battle. Vanguard Veterans or whatever, since I cannot remember if Chaplains can get Command Squads. Irrelevant, anyway, since I don't really play, but it's nice to have some kind of cohesion to the thing.

Battle-Monks!

Battle-Monk with underslung flamers, an idea I found on the B+C by a guy called...XSlashX, I believe.

The Battle-Monks will be painted like Chaplains, with brown robes.

He'll get a smock to go over his robes, I expect.

Some great conversions here.
The painting needs a bit of neatening up a little but is overall good too. Have you considered a wash of devlan mud it should help.

I'm back with....Wolf Scouts!
Well, I say Wolf Scouts, but I actually mean a Wolf Guard leader for my Wolf Scouts. The Scouts are all primed so I can't get a decent pic of them.
His gutplate is not finished.

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/218/asdfgl012.jpg
http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/1461/asdfgl013.jpg

Termie legs, Gor torso and arms, other termie bits, guitar wire, various weapons, plus new SW bits.
The normal Wolf Scouts are essentially the same, but with normal power armour legs and Ungor bodies.
