I've recently started a Vostroyan army getting the platoon box set and a chimera, and hopefully it will progress into a 2000pt army so far half the platoon and the chimera are painted. I'll post pics every time something new done.

looking great, you almost make me want to pick up a blister. are you using them straight from GW rules or your own docs?

For the bases I used a train set soil them coated i places with GW snow and grass. The reason for the tree was that my vostoryans aren't really very city fightish as it says in the medusa V orks have been pillaging and kill people ibn rural farms this is were my vostroyans will be fighting. I'll be using them slightly differently to the GW doctrines, the ones I have chosen are heavy weapins squads, techpriest enginseers, rough riders, hardened fighters and carapace armour. So without further ado here is my chimera

The chimera is fully magnatised with a moving turret, opening cupola, a crewman can be placed in the open cupola and opening back doors.

This is looking great. I am looking forward to seeing what else you do. Is the GW snow easy to work with? I am interested in using it for my bases (eventually) in a similar fashion that you have.

I've been poderingover what to get next for my vostroyans. I might copy
m3ntor's idea (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37422) and use some bretonnian minitures, if I go along with this idea I could get the battion set (http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=Individual&code=99120203005&orignav=13) which would save me a minimum of 6 as the bowmen would be the only unusable minis in the set. with the knights of realm as rough riders, pegasus knights as Seraphim squad from the witch hunters codex and the men at arms with help from a shock troop sprue could become some drafted guards or what not.That will not be for sometime though as I've just ordered a Cadian Sentinel Variant so that should arrive sometime this week. Just left to update with more pics now.

heavy flamer and heavy bolter weapon arrangements

Just remembered to say in answer to reign in blood's Q the snow is easy to work with I used it the same as the static grass, coat with PVA and then sprinkle the snow on and tap the base to get off. Also I've come up with a name of my army it will simply be called the Vostroyan 103rd Regiment

Hey, I really like these Vostroyans! :cool: I'm especially loving your paint style, which has a nice weathered, rusty type look to it. I like weathering! :D

Thanks for all kind words of support. In answer to MARKO's question I did the 'eavy metal style for painting them which is in Uk WD 317 and probally going to be on the GW site sometime soon. Now on to pics.

don't know what to use these for but I got some greatswords of a friend so I thought they when well with the vostroyan's archaic feel.

The greatswords really look the part but the lasguns look stuck on. You could do with fitting them closer in to the body, maybe adding some straps.

won't be posting as offten now as Im am back at school since start of last week this will also hinder my painting as well. Well I've got rather a lot updates for you lot, so to begin with I got my cadian sentinal last week and have started painting it (pic coming soon) the crewman is having a minor conversion done to him hell be standing and looking out the top of the sentinal he also is going to have a fur hat and possibly extra armour. I've nearly finished the 10 men left of the platoon they just have skin, hats and minor details left. the chimera has a new flag which is neater but it doesn't have the 103rds signeture design on it yet (a one winged eagle) as my last eagle transfer broke so I've got to wait until I get one of my two baslisks. the greatswords have had straps put on around the lasguns and rucksacks.
All I have now to do is post pics so here they are (most photos are on a gaming table part as i seem to get better quality on there )

A long time with no updates or pics so i decide to get of my lazy behind and post something.
@ hamani my camrea is not made for taking pics of models its more of a big thing camrea for portraits and the like.

I'm half way through making a actual list for my vostroyans about 2500pts so it'll take me a while to build probablly more than 1 year and a half I'll post it once I finish it. (the list that is) I've now just this morning finished all the vostroyan models i have so far so Ill upload the most recent pics soon I now have:

1 full platoon set painted
1 chimera painted
1 sentinel painted
6 greatsword painted (what to use as?)
5 servitors painted
1 techpriest enginseer with honorifica imperialis painted

I have lots to buy and paint still but its a start. now onto a few pics

the driver/crew is magnitised and comes out the shotgun represtend hardened fighters upgrade and it has armour crew compatment and autocannon with can be removed (magnitised agian for "weapon destroyed")

I will use this as a commissar in my army should i need one its a cadian tank commander with cadian legs attached

techpriest enginseer
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a8/forrbiddengutplate/Vostroyans/S4010601.jpg
I will be using ths as a techpriest with honorifica imperialis. the fluff behind him is that he is senior techpriest as vostroya is run by the techtraichs (sp?) a mystic adaptus mechanicus followers so he will be one of the tech's minor leaders (hence the honorifica)

Wow, those are some hardcore conversions. I wouldn't be able to argue at all with the techpriest having a 3+ save and honorifica!
