I've always been a fan of the IG but could never solidify an army list or paint scheme. Recently, I decided to just do a Tank Co. I plan on building this army to a comfortable 2150 pts.

Here's a pick of my HQ Russ. The details still aren't finished.

Here is my test model for a Storm Trooper Sgt.
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i148/no-use4a-name/Armored%20Co%20PiP/IMG_0164.jpg

Some Storm Trooper conversions. Pre-green stuff.

I'm not too sure of the DA green for the Tanks. I really like the Vostroyan Tank scheme that GW put out. Here's the link to the color scheme. Vostroyan Scheme (http://uk.games-workshop.com/imperialguard/vostroyan-regimental-assets/4/)

Until I solidify my paint scheme I'll continue building the army. More pictures can be found in my photobucket...link in sig. They're a little out-dated but you can see the direction I'm heading in.

C&C welcomed. Also, motivation VERY much needed. This is an army that I'd really like to finish....and soon.

Those Storm Troopers look good, could maybe do with a bit more armour plating on the sgt though. Nice solid colour scheme as well, I like. The tank looks ok to me.

Nice tank. The turret panel looks like a piece of cardboard in that picture, though. Your colour scheme makes them look like Dark Angel scouts. I'd be tempted to do a different colour for the fatigues.

It's actually sun light shining on the FW Brass Eagles.

I was thinking of changing the color of the armor. Maybe Chaos Black with a blue-grey highlight or Catachan. Not too sure.

This was my original color scheme. The fatigues are a mix of Catachan, Bleached Bone and Fortress grey.

you are quite a good painter. I really like dark green tanks but i think it comes down to where your army is based. Desert go bony tanks but other go green

I think that looks much better, maybe without the red leg armour/puttees. Where's that hooded head from?

I think that looks much better, maybe without the red leg armour/puttees. Where's that hooded head from?

I added the red leg armour as a homage to the American Artillery Gunners of the past. The gunpowder used would leave a slight red powder residue. They were nicked named "the red legs", very imaginative:) . I feel that every regiment needs something distintive.

As for the hood, it's a Bret. Archer head. IMO, looks great on a infiltrating veteran of countless battles. That guy has yet to get his plasmagun painted.

@Still learning, I have yet to figure out where this regiment comes from. I don't even have a name for them yet. Thoughts or suggestions would be great.

Any suggestions for the plasma coils?

And, thanks for the words of encouragement everyone.:D

These are REALLY nice. I like the red legs theme, but its a little jarring...maybe use that same red towards the top of the model or on the guns, or tone it down slightly.

Fantastic painting skill, btw.

Thanks for all the comments guys. The feedback is very helpful.

Here's a small update. The pictures are crap due to the fact that I can't find my digital camera and used the camera option on my phone. They're a little dark and fuzzy. But, hopefully, you all can make out what I'm doing.

Chimera #1- awaiting paint.

I really like the scheme and would keep it. I was going to suggest a different color on the legs, but after your explanation I changed my mind. What I would do is either a.) use a darker red, or b.) add a touch of red somewhere ele on the minis to tie the two halves together. Either way, great job on the painting, really makes me want to start IG. :)

27-08-2006, 19:04
Where are the armour skirts from? Scratchbuilds? Like the turret on the chimera as well. Nice stuff.

27-08-2006, 19:32
@CPT_Tiberius, it seems that you're not the only one suggesting to add red elswhere on the fig. I may just have to. As for starting IG, go for it. I'm a Marine-boy at heart but love the Guard. A very versitile army.

@t-tauri, the skirts are scratch builds. The one with the half eagle still needs the rivets added. You can sort of make 'em out in Chimera #1.

Again, thanks for the feedback. Keep 'em coming...I need the motivation.

Thanks Scorpio.

Got the 19th out of 20 Storm Troopers built. Just need to get the last plasma gunner converted. Well, I'm off to finish the 2nd Chimera and the 20th S.T. before the wife gets back.

I'll post my army list ASAP. As well as my "to do" list. Once the camera is located you all can expect a real up date.

Mr.chair
27-08-2006, 21:42
Wow your painting skills are quite something. I'm especially impressed by how well your scheme works over a number of different model types. Normally I wouldn't imagine that a steel legion guy and a Cadian based trooper could look like they belong in the same unit, but your scheme unites them in such a way that it works beautifully. Great job.

no-use4a-name
27-08-2006, 22:18
Thanks Mr.Chair....

Another update, of sorts.

This is my Commissar Exterminator Tank. And, I need some advice on how to complete the front hull detailling.
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i148/no-use4a-name/Armored%20Co%20WiP/CommisarExt.jpg
another view...
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i148/no-use4a-name/Armored%20Co%20WiP/CommisarExtdifview.jpg

As an Imperial leader, a Commissar is responsible for instilling loyalty amonst the troops and to also "re-invigorate" the not-so-brave souls that make up the Imperial Guard. With this in mind, I wanted to make the vehicle into a bit of a holy relic--complete with Imperial icons. The thought is that, once they see this tank, they'll feel some anxiety to either improve or be filled with bravery and reasurance that their Commissar has arrived.

Brief description on the tank. The hull had the typical "hull mounted" Heavy Bolter. I opted to remove it and relocated it to the pintle mount. Now, it leaves the front end rather empty.

Any ideas as to what to add to the front? I'm stumped. The best i can come up with is some form of targetting system...a surveyor, of sorts.

Again, using the cell phone to take pictures until the camera can be found.

Scorpio
28-08-2006, 03:37
You could take some xenos(doesnt really matter who) take a spike and ram it through the model and glue it to the front. It comes to my mind that the eldar guardian would probably be best for this cause all you need is a minor leg adjustment to make them lie flat.

hi there No use,
i love your paint syle and it's a good idea to have a specific troop
style in an armty which is mainly tanks. it'll get some really good receptions when you go gaming with it.
i've always liked DA green on tanks, take a look at George Dellapina's dragonslayers for example, he has done something very similar to you with a scratch built troop style etc.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. It really helps to keep me focused on completing this project.

Well, here's an update- of sorts. I've taken better pictures since locating my camera. The second Chimera is completed, as far as the build is concerned.

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i148/no-use4a-name/Armored%20Co%20WiP/Picture005.jpg

The army is at approx. 1950 pts. I'm gonna add another Tank Ace Russ Ext. or another Demolisher. I'm still testing which would fit my play style best. Not much left on the build aspect of this project. Maybe a week or two left in that area, then onto the painting. That's when I'll need some serious input and critique.

Anyways, C&C welcomed. If anyone is interested in close-ups just ask.

Thanks.

i really love the 'leman chimera' it's realy original.
i also had the same ideaa, combining heavy flamer with autocannon is just a great idea:) keep building

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Yesterday, I played a 9,000 point Mega-Battle. It was my Armoured Co. and another Mechanized IG Regiment vs 4,500 points of Orks. The other side won by the slimmest of margins. Still, all in all, a great game.

I just have to warn you. Blood Axe clan rules are really strong! They had Russes, Land Raiders, Bassies and, the worst of all, tons of Boyz!

Well, here are two shots taken at the club I'm a member at. The two 4x4 tables were built by me and another member some time ago, as was some of the terrain. It's seen better days but has held up pretty well considering that hundreds of games have been played on it. And, they're over three years old!

Rear shot of Orks.

I'll get close ups ASAP. You can check my Photobucket link. It does have some picts of them there.

Who would have thought that a 9000 point game of IG vs. Orks could be done in less than 5 hours. One of our turns only took 15 minutes. It was move 6"......now SHOOOOT!!11 The Ork's response, "Oi! Weez ain't dead yet. Weez gotz us sum Mekz wiv 'dem fieldz." Damn 5+ cover on the entire army. Unless they were in actual cover, that changed it to a 4+. Whatever, it was still alot of fun.

Wow, one of the best Armored Cos. Thanks. I guess you haven't seen too many,:chrome: .

Now, I'm almost done w/ the build. Pretty soon it will be painting time. Again, I can't solidify a color scheme for the tanks. Suggestions will be gladly taken.

If you look at the first page you'll see the original tank paint scheme. I've grown tired of this simply because of my Dark Angels, I don't want to overdose on DA green.

I was thinking of doing something similar to the Vostroyans
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i148/no-use4a-name/Armored%20Co%20WiP/demolisher-painted-sm.jpg

or, go WWII green.

I started painting one of the Chimeras. I'm doing something similar to the Vostroyan Tank pictured in post #35, just a little less GW Rotting Flesh. This means that I'll have to change the bases from a Hive City to.... something.

I'll post pictures later tonight or Thursday.

I'll also have the 3rd Chimera and Commissar Ext. built by then as well. I might even post up an army list. Which, I've increased to 2500 pts as that is what's normally played at my club.

Thanks for the support guys....it means alot. :)

I find it a bit dark and feel that it could use another highlight.
I was going for a "long campaign" look.

Please note, this model has yet to have any details painted and is very "paint-in-progress".

Here's a quick step by step. All GW colors.

Black primer
Beastial Brown overbrush
BB mixed w/ Graveyard drybrush
Graveyard drybrush
I then mixed in some Rotting Flesh and did another drybrush
Finally, I added a small amout of Skull White for the final drybrush.
I made sure that for each drybrush that I concentrated on the edges.

It's very similar to the GW Vostroyan Tutorial. I just changed the amounts of Rotting Flesh so my tank would fit better in an Ash Waiste or desert enviroment.

08-09-2006, 00:22
This is great stuff! How did I manage to miss this thread until now? :(

I really like your chimeras/chimerae. The predator turret is great for it. I've been wanting to use it since it appeared in Black Gobbo. The extra armour is also very cool. I might steal that as well. ;)

I'll be watching this...

Scorpio
08-09-2006, 02:25
Great! No more eaten brains:evilgrin:
Ok looks good. I assume(since your going for the long campaign look) that your going to add gouges and stuff to the hull? Also i would say even a little darker on the tank and with splotches of a lighter color if your going for a camo feel.

Are you talking about the wheels that move the tracks? If you are, then I know what you're refering to. I saw the same thing in the Black Gobbo. It's really cool looking. Problem is, I use all of the wheels when building my vehicles.

Quick update.

I'll be testing out my Armored Company against some Chaos thugs and, if I have the time, against another Ork Horde. We have 6 Ork players at my gaming club- not including me and my miserable 1k of Speed Freaks. :P

While I'm there, I'll take advantage of the club's photo booth and post some picts. I've been working on 3 LRs and the Commissar's Ext. In the end, I went with a typical WWII Allied-esque green. It's similar to the Cadian 98th from IA I. I may even adopt the 98th's vehicle identification system.

My list is almost final and will be posted tommorrow...depending on how they perform, it shouldn't change. My LR Demolisher has yet to earn it's points. But, I need the AP 2 for those damn Marine Termies and *******' Mega Armored Orks. If It continues to do nothing, it may be changed to another Ext. commanded by a Tank Ace. Goooooo BS 3!111oneONE!!

So, to re-cap, picts and a list will be posted around 10 or 11pm US Eastern Time. Unless the wife and I decide to meet up w/ some friends for a night of "moderate" social drinking and lounge hopping. BTW, A lounge is NYC for "pub". Just clarifying for our limey buddies.And, by "moderate" I mean I'll be drunk and she'll sip some whine. It balances out.

Thanks.

Wait until you see what I have planned for next w/ this army. Vehicle wreckage! I should have updated picts this weekend, if not sooner.

Progress should start flowing faster as I have some time on my hands due to being on "medical revue" at work. I have to wait and be cleared by a NYC Police Orthopedist before I can work again. They're worried about a shoulder injury. I've had 8 dislocations in about a 4 year time. So, it could be some time before I go back. Mid-October the earliest. Time to hobby!:chrome:

The Tanks are nice mate ,I love the Commisars tank :) Thats one thing I never thought about for my cadians ,I think I will have to give it a go some time ,whats the turret from ?

no-use4a-name
18-09-2006, 17:24
@KoU, thanks. The tanks are a basecoat of Dark Angels air brushed lightly. The Da spray can yield the same effect. Then a drybrush of Catachan. With several drybrushes of Catachan and Camo mixes. I never cleaned the brush between drybrushes and never went as bright as straight Camo.

@Deadlyheadly, the turret is the plastic Russ one w/ two IG plastic autocannons, SOB Icons and plastic card-- for the extra armor. And, thanks to you as well for the compliment.

If anyone is interested, I can post templates for the Chimera Extra armor and the Russ turret extra armor. I may also add armored skirts to some of the russes to represent one of the ACs Doctrines---basically, regular LRs w/ side armor 13. Not too sure if I'll use that doctrine.

so for those 4 years do you think that the shoulder has been in place more or less than out of place? :)
i'd love to see templates, i have not the patience to cut out exacting replicas of Plasticard, i guess it's only me that suffers because of it huh?
also, where's the churabim from atop the exterminator turret, just visible?
also assuming you are a policeman, (i'm english) so i guess the translation is cop! i really love the idea of US tax dollars going on WH40K, it's probably coming here to England lol.

To answer your questions, the shoulder is only dislocated for a few minutes. It's quickly put back in it's socket.

I'll post the templates ASAP. Unless it violates IP laws...shhh, I'll pm you w/ them instead.

The cherub is from the SOB tank acc./Immolater sprue.

i know this is slightly off topic but does dislocation hurt as much as everybody says it is?

On the topic of shoulder dislocations...
It hurts a HELL of alot when it initially dislocates. After that, it's just insanely uncomfortable until it's put back in. Which will cause further pain.

There are two procedures that I've had done to pop it in place. One, by force. Meaning, quickly and painfully. The other, which takes longer, uses a dosage of a muscle relaxant and the Doctor pulling on the limb until the joint is back in place. Usually, the muscles are very constricted that's why they give you the drugs. The first time it dislocated, the Doc used the muscle relaxant. The rest of them were done with force.

Templates, there was a second request. I'll get on posting them ASAP. Once I figure out how to use the new scanner my wife got.

And, pictures of new models will be posted no later than this weekend.

That's all for now. Laters everyone.

Just got back from Target where I picked up "V for Vendetta", "Star Wars Episodes 4 to 6", and the entire "Band of Brothers". I like to watch movies while I paint.

And, just to get you guys wanting more....

No picts but, here's where I'm at.

I have finished painting 3 LRs, minus the weapons. I'm still unsure if I'll go hull mounted heavy bolter or lascannon. (Thoughts on this?) And, I have started on the 3 Chimeras. Once the Chimeras have the armor finished, I'll add the weathering and leave the stowage details for later. I really want to start painting my Storm Troopers and painting stowage is soooo boring.

The Commissars ride has so many details that I regret building that damn thing the way I did. I found myself half-assing the marble effect, on the icons, just to get it done. I put that damn thing down for later -so as not to screw it up now.

Picts may be up as early as Thursday. I may head over to my gaming club today. We have a photo booth set up in our bitz room. If not, once the weather clears up, I'll take some outside shots. Today looks pretty sunny so far...if a little wet.

20-09-2006, 17:31
how about a little tutorial on painting marble, i have never seen it, i don't think?
also, i would go with bolter for the russ, it's not so traditional but the lenght of the lascannonjust seems to change the whole dynamic of the LR IMHO.

I guess I shouldn't have called it marble. It's more of a cracked granite. Still want the tut? As for the lascannon, I use a trimmed down version of the plastic lascannon from the IG plastic Heavy Weapons Team. It can be seen mounted on the Capt's Russ in the first post.

The later it gets, the more I want to stay home and watch my new DVDs. If that's the case, I'll take some photos outside this afternoon, US Eastern Time.

Here's another update.

Pictured here are my 3 Russ troops and the HQ. In case any of you noticed unfinished Battle Cannons or missing hull weapons that is because they are only about 85% complete. They all need some finishing work. Especially the HQ. In case you can't tell. For those who noticed, the HQ was painted in a different shade of green.

If any one needs close ups just post it here and I'll take them tommorrow. These pictures were taken outdoors with an additional spot light shining on them...it was getting dark and the first set of picts didn't come out too clear. I was distracted by the "Band of Brothers" DVDs. Which is a must have for any fan of the US 101 Airborn Paratroopers of WWII. The fictional Private Ryan was one.

As always, C&C welcomed.

Seriously, I'll chill with the nerd stuff, I did promise some templates and tutorials. The templates will be up soon. The granite tutorial will be posted once I take PIP pictures of the process. Right now that commissar tank is pissing me off and we're not talking. He really doesn't play well with others.

I'm also working on some destroyed tanks to swap out when these guys meet the Emperor's Peace. I'm trying to get it so I can resin copy it. Tougher than I thought.... and another project gets put on the side line.

This hasn't been mentioned yet. All of these tanks have hidden magnets or magnetized weapons. It's so I can mount smoke or replace the destroyed parts w/ damaged counter parts during game play.

Now, post away Warseers.

For now it'll just be the FW Exterminator as far as variants go. I'm torn between one of the Super Heavies, Elysians (as I own 6 Sentinals and a Valkry, sp?) and the NEW DEATH KORPS!:eek: Very unsure....:eyebrows:

though you should make use of the valkyrie, they just rock, with hellstrikes and stuff; did you get the Bolter gunners too? there is no chance i would buy a valkyrie without them.

I actually p/u 2 Valks w/ 4 set of gunners. Two sets for the models and two for any future conversions. I ended up trading one Valk for 2 Drop Pods and a MkIV Dread. Sort of regretting the trade. Even though I made out.

I am more partial to Elysians as well. And have always wanted a Baneblade.
I think I'll try and let the "shiny new toy" syndrome die down first before I go and order any FW figs. If not, I may end up divorced.

BTW, I almost got a Titan for 30% off retail--- unassembled. I didn't bother with it once I saw all the pieces for just the feet.

perhaps build and paint your valkyrie, get a paint scheme tied down for Elysians then buy some elysians, given the work involved in the valk jsut cleaning it you ight have about two weeks in it.

what other projects have you got on the go? marines maybe? just guessing from the drop pods you mentioned.

+Sir, as per your request. I’m submitting a complete roster of 98th, 3rd Co. as it stands under Capt. Dias. The company, as with the rest of the regiment, have sustained tremendous casualties as a result of the recent incursions. Third Co. currently stands at 51% of operational strength. I’m requesting that Capt. Dias be awarded the Honorifica Obscuras for the leadership displayed in Operation: Montiduex Line. Third Co. held the line despite being surrounded. This allowed for the rest of the 98th to orchestrate a counter-push. Forcing the enemy to rout. I’m currently reassigning Commissar Sabrael and his Exterminator Retribution to the Third. I’m also giving Capt. Dias temporary command of three Storm Trooper units.+

It was getting dark outside and I didn't have enough time to finish these guys up and take semi-decent picts. I prefer to use sunlight when taking pictures. As a result, they're a little dark and a bit blurry. Here they are in a PIP state. I'll take better pictures at my gaming club this weekend.

They all need the squad markings, headgear, hands and weapons finished or touched up. Other than those four areas, they're pretty much done.

The legs and bodies are on the same sprue for both. You'd have to buy 4 box sets of sniper scouts and one box of Cadians to make 20. Which is $135 US. Or, you can get a sprue of 5 Cadians and a box of sniper scouts if you only need 5. Basically, these STs are almost as expensive as Elysians w/o Grav-shutes.

@SC, the "sniper lasgun thingies" will count as Hellguns. Initially, the STs were going to be STs in an Elysian Drop Troop army. But, I found myself w/ a ton of tanks and went Armored Co. instead. Plus, I don't have the rules for Elysians. Once I get the rules,*hint, hint, anyone can PM me, hint*;), then I'll decide on what to order from FW, including the IA III and IV.

I've got some news to report. Just got a Vulture at 30% off retail! New in box. So that means I have a Valkyrie, Vulture and a bunch of STs for when I do Elysians. They can take STs correct? I'm in the process of designing plans for Turantulas (sp?) As the FW ones are pricey for what you get, IMO.

Also, a buddy of mine gave me his Russ Extermintaor--- it's just built and primed. I'll need to do a few mods to it to make it fit in w/ the rest of my Tanks.

As for the secret project, the basics are done. Once I add some details, I'll post picts and get advice as to which direction I should head in next.

Lastly, I have finished painting my first unit of Storm Troopers and should have their Chimera done later this afternoon, US Eastern time. If it clears up, I'll post picts today. If not, you'll all have to wait until Saturday.

EDIT: Just noticed that a few more of you gave this thread 5 Stars. Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it. Little things like that really help to keep me going on this project. Even with those FW Elysians calling out to me...

A friend sold it to me. He never did anything with it and knew I wanted one. So, he sold it to me at the price he got it for years back. FYI, he's a GW employee here in NYC. They get 20% off FW. Combine that with the old price and you get 30% off. Actually, now that I looked at the current price, it was 35% off. Even better!

My Valkyrie only cost me $100 US. I got it a few years ago, and at discount (20% off). Now it retails for @$185 US.

Here's an update.

Pictures are so-so. It was getting dark and I needed to take advantage of what little sunlight was left. So, the Chimera isn't completed. It still needs the heavy flamer, stubber, autocannon, company color, unit number and the lenses painted. About an hour or so more.

The Storm Troopers are done.

I present to you a Storm Trooper squad of the Cadian 98th Armored; 3rd Company (Charlie Co.).

A very very nice unit there. Id go for just a stripe on the pad. Its simpler and would instantly identify each squad.

The chimera is very nice too. I like the wee rust patches. Might try that on mine. I have never been able to get the bare metal scrapes to look right. Just looks like silver paint over black over the base paint. If that makes any sense...

Great stuff,

Sorry if this has already been asked, but how did you do the weathering on those russes. I have no idea how to do it on mine (Yes i'll be getting my armoured company finished. :D ) Keep an eye out for it!

I've also decided to change the colour of my tanks, as the grey is too bland and i'm sick of painting stuff green.

Btw, very nice tanks. Mine is more of a out the box army. As i don't really have the time or ability to carry out conversions like yours. I thought about using predator turrets on my chimeras but everyone seems to be doing it.

they look amazing, so crisp, so clean and with an awesome clour scheme, the flesh tones on the scout heads hide the fact that there is not an awful lot of detail on them and the guns just look incredible cool, did you use the crouching scout legs at all? they would look great on heavy weapons no?

30-09-2006, 14:50
WOW! Got alot of responses this time around. I'll try and answer everyones questions/comments. Here goes....

@Scribe Enzo, I think I'm going to go with the stripe as a unit identifier. If I feel the need, I'll freehand some unit numbers later on. Thanks for your comment. In case you're curious, this is how I paint battle damage.
Black basecoat in a "blast shape"
Mix of Boltgun and Tin Bitz inside the black
A careful and light drybrush of mythril
And, done.
BTW, saw your stuff. Nice Rough Rider!

@Scorpio, Glad you like the figs. I'm working on the second squad as we speak.

@Cookiescrumble, Here's how I weather my tanks. Hope it helps.
Using a narrow, soft, flat brush, lightly drybush the areas to be weathered w/ Bleached Bone.
Repeat this step again. Make sure to not go over the entire previously drybrushed area. This will, hopefully, create a gradient effect.
Using the same brush, not cleaning it. Drybrush a smaller area using a mix of Graveyard and Bleached.
Finally, drybrush in an even smaller area than before, w/ Graveyard.

@SC, Yeah, the scout faces have almost no detail compared to the un-helmeted IG heads. They’re no where near as fun to paint as the IG heads. I really needed to layer on the flesh tones in hopes of getting their faces to appear as if they had depth.

@CMDante, I’ve reported your theft to the local Mods. Stolen ideas are not what Warseer is about. I suggest you read the forum rules. :evilgrin: LOL, totally kidding. I’m glad you like my stuff enough to wanna steal it.

@old guard: Thanks, glad to have won you over. I know how hard that is.:)

@Unriggable, The arm holding the plasma gun? Which one? There are two models w/ plasma. Anyways, they’re both simple conversions. One is an IG arm that the lasgun rests in. I simply and carefully sliced off the hand and repositioned it at an angle so as to make the the Guardsmen appear to be hold the weapon at a more relaxed angle. Vs. that of it being parallel to the ground. The second arm is the Sgts arm w/ the chevrons shaved off and the chainsword removed. I left most of the hand guard on to act as a handle for the plasma gun.

Stay tuned. There should be another update soon. I'm also testing this army out today against a "creature feature" 'nid list and an infantry heavy Chaos Undiv. one. Wish me luck!

i really like them but i hadn't realised you undercoated white, a good idea i guess with the light colours, and the bases on post#2 look like they have been highlighted by hand as opposed to drybrushing is that what yuo did?

how do you paint your razorwire? i had been doing watered down bestial brown, then watered down blazing orange, but yours looks far better.

i think the lasguns look great with the scout sniper bits (you're gonna be left with a hell of a lot of scout stuff left surely? it may be an idea to use the guns you took the 'tubes' from as snipers on cadian bodies for a special weapon/sharpshooter doctrine/squad, then use the front of a lasgun, the end barrel bit (silver bit you took off for the sniper bit) and add that onto it, like a trade off lol.

i like how you make an effort on the bases, i bet you'd die before you got a platoon of them done! how do you do them?

sorry for all the questions but if you didn't do such nice stuff...!

I usually undercoat white. My tanks are undercoated black to help w/ shading. And, the bases are drybrushed. They're just done lightly and built up slower than what most people do.


how do you paint your razorwire? i had been doing watered down bestial brown, then watered down blazing orange, but yours looks far better.

The razorwire is drybrushed just like the base. I then add a very watered down Vermin Brown wash. Followed by a watered down wash of Blazing. I then scrape of some paint here and there to allow the natural metal to shine through.


i think the lasguns look great with the scout sniper bits (you're gonna be left with a hell of a lot of scout stuff left surely? it may be an idea to use the guns you took the 'tubes' from as snipers on cadian bodies for a special weapon/sharpshooter doctrine/squad, then use the front of a lasgun, the end barrel bit (silver bit you took off for the sniper bit) and add that onto it, like a trade off lol.

That could work. I mean, using the loose sniper rifle bitz for Cadian Snipers. The "leftovers" will be donated to my gaming club in hopes of seeing life in some one elses army.


i like how you make an effort on the bases, i bet you'd die before you got a platoon of them done! how do you do them?

That's why I went Armored Co., LOL.

However, there's a tourney soon and I may take this army instead of my Dark Angels. I'll have to change it over to a normal Codex:IG army since ACs are not legal in tourneys. If I do take IG, I'll need to paint one or two figs a day to get it done. Not impossible....just damn hard!

i guess donation is a nice thing to do, theyr'e not cheap and any help to others is good i say.

good idea on the razorwire and good look with the tourney, is there any other 'troopy' things for the army? more stormtroopers or anything like that?

oh, before i forget, in a previous post you mentioned tarantula's (on the cheap lol) i know in 'pompeylad's elysian project' he uses just the razorback turet stuck to a base, not a bad start but i know i'd like some sort of stand for them IMO, perhaps a plasticard and plasti-rod construction could work.

SC, I didn't mean to put you or anyone down in regards to drybrushing. It's just that I've seen most people who employ that method use it incorrectly. As in, it's more of an overbrush vs. drybrush.

Donation is always good. My club has a bitz room. There's probably enough in there to make atleast half a dozen large armies for bith WFB and 40k. One man's trash is another's gold.

If I use IG for the tourney it will most likely be a drop troop w/ grenadiers and vets. Not sure on much else. Any advice or thoughts from you or anyone else will be gladly taken. I'm not too familiar w/ using IG in a tourney setting.

Tarantulas on the cheap. I'm working on templates and will make them from plastic card. Unless I'm able to make a drop mold. Then I'll make duplicates in resin. But, that project is far off in the future.....

I scalloped thin strips of plastic card. Then cut them into small brick lengths of various sizes. I also used the FW brass eagles, barbed wire, cork and GW sand to add detail. The drybrushing started over a black base then went through the grey scale up to white. The originals I left blank w/o the FW, sand, cork and stuff. So as to be able to make resin copies. I can make an easy step by step if enough people are interested.

Carapace- just to be annoying and to give my Command a 4+ common armor save
Drop Troops- tourney mobilty
Close Order Drill- it's free as in zero points!

I'm still messing around w/ the last 300 points of the list.

I just need patience as I have around 5 weeks to get 1,850 pts painted for a tourney.

The prelim. tourney is in 10 days. Only 1/3 of the army needs to be WYSIWYG, painted and done by then. If I don't pass the first round, then I can kick back a little and write up that tutorial.

If you guys really can't wait, then I'll do it sooner. As I'm a man of my word, I did say I would post up that tut when I started work on the 3rd squad. Which should see a paint brush soon.

Well, quick update:

Play tested my heavily mech'd 1850pt Tourney list against a large infantry based Chaos Undiv. army. I lost both games. One loss was only by 20pts. The other was a solid victory for my opponant. In my defense, it was the first time using this army. And, I faced down almost 75 Marines w/ a fast moving Daemon Prince. Highlight of game #1. My Sr. Officer killed his T6 DP with a S3 power sword!

On a hobby note, I have ST squad #1 completed to an 8 man unit. I also finished the Heavy Bolter guy for Vet squad #1. I also finished painting the BDUs on my HQ squad. I'll post picts ASAP.

I haven't made any progress with this army in nearly a week. Due to NYPD and family obligations I've been busy. I'm not even sure as to when I'll be able to jump on the command squad. It seems that either everyone is having a birthday, getting married or having a child. My schedule will be pretty hectic until early December- then comes Christmas and New Years, joy!

I promised to send Darkseer some picts of my Dark Angels for Firebase and I need to touch up some of the models first. He set a deadline of the end of October. So, if I do get to paint it'll be those guys. Unless, I give up sleeping.....hmmmm.

"He's baaaack!"

No pictures this time, soon though.

I'm sorry that it's been over a month since I last posted an update.

Apologies to those of you who were fans of this thread. Really sorry about that.

I’ve been really busy this last month. Between the NYPD, the Tournament I went to, holidays, household responsibilities as well as spending time with the wife and child I’ve barely had time to keep this log current. But, I did manage to get the army completed.

So, here’s where I’m at:
-The Armored Company is 100% completed to a comfortable 2,150 pts.
- There are another 2 tanks and a Sentinel left to paint. That will put me to the 2,500 pt mark. *On the back burner they go.
-The Codex:IG army I started will also be put on the back-back burner.
-I‘ve got the pictures ready for the basing tutorial I promised earlier in this thread. They’ll be up Thursday afternoon New York time, promise.
-I also need to take pictures of the finished army and post ‘em up ASAP. As soon as the weather outside clears up I can take pictures. There’s a bit of an over cast.

Once all that’s done, I’ll put this thread to bed and get my Speed Freaks up and running. I’ve decided to re-start them from the beginning.

Here's that much promised, "Better late than never!", update. Pictured are my two Recon units. These are some of the elements that I took to a tourney back in November.

First up, recon Sent. It was painted the day before the tourney that I took this army to. It could use a little more detailing, IE. squad markings and etc.

Recon Chimera. Saved me against Tau, Eldar and, this beast blew away some Marine Scouts. Plus, it's a scoring unit! All for 93pts.

FYI, I took about 50 pictures yesterday. I'll post more later. Don't want to kill the dial up users.

Thought it'd be cool to post up this Inquisitor conversion. As I take DH allies, I thought it was only appropriate to have one.

Nice looking conversion there, here's my guesses:

Head: New DA Ravenwing hooded head or WE head
Upper Body: Bret peasant
Lower Body: Cadian legs
Sword: Bret knights sword with some conversion at the hand possibly involving marauder standard hand?
Left Hand: Inquisitor Coteaz left forearm and hand sans cyber-eagle?
Extra's: Terminator honours crux from SM command, kroot shoulder pad (on left arm), SM pouches (on back belt), plasticard rivets, GS cast of =I= icon on deathwatch pad from SM command.

Which sword from the Bret knights sprue is that (assuming thats where its from?) as I'm looking for some plastic keys for some Empire wizard conversions.

Looking forward to seeing him painted.

Is the commisar tank finished? It still looks kind of WIP to me when I compare it with the job you did on the stormtroopers?

Cheers,

Dante

looking great! just one question, why didn't you go for the twin linked bolter for the turrets, the points value isn't that much different?
