How old is that model? The Shadowsword? Is it the original Forgeworld one, or is it a very good home make? Whats the project btw?

It's an official oop armorcast shadowsword. Armorcast made a baneblade tank. However the center slides in and out. Later, they produced a shadowsword body to fit into the baneblade body. I think it was produced between 1988-1991. The project is my entire army of course. :)

Oh right ok, cool. Do you have any other pics of your army so far, or have you just started it? Are you converting Death Corps models, or using the actual ones?

Games Workshop never made Kreig Death Crops models. Steel legion comes close though. My basic infantry will be cadian legs and arms, but converted torsos and heads. I wont even have my IG infantry started till the end of March. But I'm slowly working on the DH right now. Its going to be a hive setting. My inquisitor's retinue will be made up of converted necromunda models.

Man, after seeing that baneblade with the measuring tape it makes mine seem gigantic. From front of the hull to the back of my scratchbuilt one its probably 9-12 inches.:eek: Lookin forward to seein where this army goes. I always liked the deathcorps of krieg fluff and imagery but never had the time to convert that many models to make an IG army out of them, of course you can always use the steel legion models which now cost an arm and a leg.

I dont plan on using steel legion. If things go right, you will start seeing some of my conversions in march. But I'll try to keep you interested with the DH portion first :)

My conversion idea could save you money... How to make modular IG heavy weapon teams. 2+1 modular weapons per single heavy weapon box.

Stripping part two. After 24 hours, the primary coat was removed. Bits and pieces of the primer are coming off. Usually primer comes off after the first 24 hours. But by the feal of it, I think the guy used non acrylic spray primer. Also I noticed that there are multiple layers of black paint as I scrape. I took off large chunks of primer to let the simple green seep in underneath the rest of the paint. Hopefully another 24 hours should take care of it. Of course good stripping tools like my plastic detergent scrubby help. :)

Deathcult assassin. 3 of 9. Its hard to tell, but I used a reflective (translucent) red paint over bolt gunmetal on the sword. Sort of gives it that power weapon feel.

I decided to modulate a basilisk. Even though I'll probably never use the medusa, I had a spare kit laying around.

first drill 1/8"x1/16 holes for the axles. Add the appropriate earth magnets

Then again on the glue area for the blast shields

THats a cool grunt, but it is missing the skull features of the krieg! I'd personally imagine the krieg being darker and more drab, but as a steel legion trooper it's fine.

More!! I sat down and figured out how I wanted to do my bases. Ashwaste was a given, but I wanted to make sure I had the right color. I think that snow/gray ashwaste would hide the models too much. Desert would be too bright. So I did some digging and decided to go with red volcanic ash.

A prime example.

looks good but I think they are going to look to much like steel legions rather than death korp. good paint though.

Mix the cadian sprue with the high elf sprue and perhaps the skulls from undead boxed sets or something...then some greenstuff.
