Hello All

I began this army last summer, and i have posted regularly on Boot Camp, and WIP. But i thought, why not show it here as well - so here goes:

http://http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e231/Irfpio/green12.jpg

It all started with this guy - because, i liked the feel off the Vostroyans, but i wasn't all together happy about the model - particurly the long rifles, gasmasks, feathers, commander chickenfoot, and so on.... but i still liked them!!!!:confused: So i wanted to see if i could make them entirely out of plastic and green stuff!!!

So i began....

I have up until now used bits from: WHF Empire, Bretonnien, and skeletons. and from 40K from Cadien, catachan, SM, CSM.

That top guy painted in testcolors:

i tell you what, i really like the plasma gun, very blocky, totally at one with Vostryan looks - i never thought the plasma gunner metal looked great.

excellent work - now take a brush...

Irfpio; you amaze me. Your sculpted Vostroyans look awesome, the only C and C I have are two stupidly minute things:

Vostroyan shoulderpads are usually a little smaller, and more oblong in shape than yours, not that you need to change them.

... and gasmasks on some of them would look sweet.

But you will never see gasmasks on them!!

Ah, good to see another Vostroyan project log!

Wow, all sculpted...now that's pretty cool. Its probably a lot cheaper too.
As I've said before, I really like what you've done with the vehicles. Watching the Leviathan emerge will be quite the treat.

Have you given any thought to using parts from the Kislev range?

Best of luck, I'll be watching with great interest.

Thanks LotE, No i haven't thought of the kislev range, maybe because, i haven't thought of rough rider yet, but i think they would work very well!!!

Yeah the Kislev range is perfect for converting. They are a bit smaller than vostroyans, which is why I don't use them as base models. However, they are the right size for yours since you based your army off the smaller sized cadians.
I plan on using the Kislev Gryphon Legionairres as Rough Riders. They just need the furry hats.
The Vossies have eagles and skulls on their hats. I saw it on some of them. Do you plan on adding them? Forgeworld's brass eagles are perfect accessories for the hats and for anything else for that matter.

Some really great conversions there, love the greenstuff work and your paintings alright, the freehand on the banner is pretty good as well. My only cirism would be that some of your fur hats (ie. The one too the right in the first close up picture) look weird. I would love too see you do some with helmets though, if you have the guardsmen codex with the picture of the vostroyans, and their general Harazhn fighting some elder, you'll see some of them wearing helmets and re-breathers.

First of all: THANKS..... Second, i have looked at that picture, together with the other Vostroyan pictures from WD, and i have thought about the helmets, but i just don't think that they feel right - don't know why! But thanks for the thoughts, after all, thats why i post - to get some feedback, and inspiration for new ideas.....:)

I agree on that Guard picture. They have a more Valhallan feel than Vostroyan. Its the commander that gives it away though. Before the Vostroyans appeared, people were pointing at that picture saying the vossies had that type of look. It is the artwork from John Blanche however, that the vossies are based off of.

Now perhaps you can help me irfpio...I'd like to convert a female Vostroyan officer. I've looked at all the models in GW and other companies, but have yet to find a suitable base model. Any ideas? Or perhaps on how to model one from bitz and greenstuff?

Thanks

Excatly right on the first passage.....!

As for the female officer, i have been looking at the Mordheim range: The Sister of Sigmar Superior (110204101) with some Green stuff, would work really great i think!

Deamonhunter: Callidus Assasin 1 body (010800201) This mixed with Cadien plastic legs and Green stuff i have also thought about!

I have also thought about mixing some of the sisters upper bodys, with cadien legs, and the clean them up with green stuff.

I will try to make a mock-up, i think i have a sigmarite sister somewhere....

Hope that helps

Nice, we're thinking along the same page!

The only problem I see with the models is that the vossies are super huge and fantasy is slightly smaller than normal size.
Other models to consider are the female dark elf from the bolt thrower blister and the lahmian vampires. The easiest way to hide alot of the non vossie detail would be via a long trenchcoat like the artwork portrays. Another range to look at are the plastic woodelves. Female torsos and the legs usually have long robes with chainmail...
Something to think about.

Well - i don't have that problem....:D

But i agree, the elves, might work - as for the Lahmian, i looked at them, and i am not sure, that they would work!

The wood elves might work well!

So what didn't you like about the normal models? I know the gasmasks were one feature...anything else?

Oh, I found a model that may serve as a good base for a female vostroyan. She is from warmachine. A Khador manhunter I believe.

Yes, the Gasmasks are one, and also the "lawrence of arabia" guns, the flamer, the feathers, the commanders foot (looks like a chikenfoot) IMHO.

So, with all of this (and still liking the Vostroyans overall look) i started the plastic ones.......:) The best thing about that, is that the first 30 or something models, i already had parts for - its only resently i have been buying new parts (cadien heavy Weapons)

He he, isn't that, why this is such a great hobby???? makes us all field different looking armies, which in my opinion is what its all about....:D

For now, i am taking standard Vostroyan Doctrines, but i am making my army very generic, so that i can use it as any imperial guard army (i can do that because my Vostroyans are that cheap....) But ofcorse, it takes time to model them - and right now, nothing gets done, because i am struggeling with pneumonia (don't know if i spelled that right).........:cries:

Nice to see someone making their own vos. nice work with that. The tanks looks great but I think some wheatering around the tracks would make the meven better, (the chipping is great) . I dislike the purity seal on the HB on the first tank it looks to big and out of place as well as the gold looks a bit flat on the first tank but other than that great work and keep working with it and youīll have a uniqe and great looking army

Thanks Animerik!

Inspired by Lote, here is some of my FLUFF:

The Vostroyan XXIV is a dedicated expert regiment used primarily in city fight campaigns all over the wast imperium of mankind.
Although their expert reputation, the XXIV are still very capable of fighting in every other environment they are put into.

The regiment has a great and well deserved reputation for being one of the best city fighting regiments in the entire imperial guard.
An honour, the XXIV is very conscious about, and is rigorously trying to uphold.

The XXIV is also equipped in a different manner, to all the other Firstborn regiments. The basic weapon in the XXIV is a modified version of the cadian pattern lasrifle.

The reason for this is, back during the EYE OF TERROR campaign, the XXIV fought alongside the cadians defending the cadian gate, and found that the shorter rifle, which the cadien used was more suited for use in urban fighting environment. Therefore the XXIV commissioned the cadian pattern lasrifle. Their new rifles are still manufactured on Vostroya, in the tradition of hand made master crafted weapons.

Yes, amongst other bodies, I use the Whole Empire range, together with Cadien and catachan for the bodies..

A little more background:

Commander of the Vostroyan XXIV Graf Von Kulnev is from one of Vostroyas oldest families. His heritage can be traced back to the first founding of the Firstborn regiments. But this is not the reason for him being commander, because unlike many Imperial Guard regiments, the Vostroyan regiments command positions are earned during many campaigns and through personal leadership abilities and courage.

Although being of noble blood, Graf Von Kulnev began his career in the XXIV regiment as a normal foot soldier, where he during countless battles fought with extreme bravery and initiative, soon rising in rank to be a squad leader, with nine men under his command. I was during that time, that the higher officers of the regiment really noted his outstanding abilities as a leader and commander of men.

Several times Kulnev distinguished himself in reconnaissance actions. He took part in the battle of the Lukaris systems with the Ork Waagh of warlord Eadsplitta, and in the capture of the main Cities in the Lukaris system, by Imperial troops.
In the very young age Kulnev displayed his talent for command and abilities to lead the soldiers into battle.

Five years later Kulnev already commanded a detached force that helped Lord General Rumyantsev's Volpone III Corps to capture the port city and fortress of Kolobrzeg in the Kroschin systems. Then he temporarily commanded the Volpone Dragoon regiment that distinguished in the pursuit of Blood pact troops during the fierce battles in the outskirts of the city. After this for some time Kulnev commanded a detachment of the Volpone Dragoon regiment, before returning to the XXIV Vostroya.

Kulnev was, during the fierce battles at the Cadien Gate, during the Eye of Terror campaign, promoted to Commander of the XXIV Vostroyan Regiment, and it is because of the battles during that period, the Kulnev instituted some of the weaponry, that is special for the Vostroyan XXIV regiment, namely the shorter pattern Lasrifle.

I'll do as good as I can to help out (and a regimental symbol'd be fun - though you might want to ask escobar to refine it when I've done the one :)), though don't expect something superb - I've too thought about ideas, but maybe I might get something now. I'll try!

Alright, it's a hard one to get ideas for, but something might be useful of this:
http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o162/Img_Workshop/Leviathan.jpg

And here's an attempt at a regimental emblem:
http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o162/Img_Workshop/XXIV.jpg

The Maxim-style heavy bolter is easily made out of a plastic rod or the like and a thinner rod/pipe at the bottom of it as the nozzle. Search for Maxim to see an example. And I notice that the potential gun-balconies on the sides would have to be lowered. The gun slits would be above the gothic arched windows, if they even would be on the Leviathan. :)

irfpio - that leviathan is looking great - looking forwardto seeing all the rivets on it.

If Voronwe does up a symbol for you I can draw it up on the computer like LotE's. Been extremely busy with work lately but have a few hours next monday night that i can get it done in - and will make an easy template for cutting out.
- if you want of course, anything i can do to help this amazing project...

Looking very funky. How many will the Leviathan be armed with eventually?

On another note does a Leviathan need smoke launchers? While they look good I'm not sure you can really hide a moving tower block behind a few smoke grenades.

The smoke 'nades are to hide everything else around the Leviathian...so people just shoot at it and shrug the fire off.

Those AA mounts are sweet. I have two of the large wheels but I'm in the US, if your really desperate I'll send 'em to you but a trade would be nice considering the cost of shipping...pm me if your interested irfpio!

Wow very nice if you can keep a high level of detail and not get tired of working with it, they give it a good slap of paint then this will go down in history of big stuff ^^ no really love the detail work so far but I think you need to add lot of details on it to make it less flat but still not cluterd with small stuff. I suggest armor plates, small riverts and minor battel damage, and that stuff. lovely so far and keep at it!!

Might I suggest that when you are done with the rivets you look into a way to emulate 'stained glass' for the archways underneath the lascannon turrets? Or even for the rest of the arches...perhaps print out designs on high quality photo paper (the kinda glossy looking kind to get that shine)?

I haven't really given much thought to the detailing, where painting is conserned - besides the fact, that it will get the same basecolour as my other Vostroyan Vehicles.. But i think the stained glass idea is worth trying out...;o)

It's looking great so far - but please add even more details! Pipes, plates or whatever; anyything that'll make this beast of a vehicle to a real and realistic monster. You could perhaps add your regiment's number in roman digits somewhere, and somewhere else a window slit. The door could be flanked by - well, pretty much everything; even cleaned up plastic sprue bits. There should be more details to this awesome beast - because it deserves it. Perhaps add a ladder to one of the inner sides of the "track-boxes", or maybe more of these "lids" on the side seen in the bottom picture.

Got some more detail panels made, they will go on this afternoon - the plan after work, is to finish construction, so far, that i can finish detailing the superstructure - and maybe begin on the top platform..... It still needs the rear platform, and the top with some kind of turret, and such......... and a whole lot of rivets.......:o

Thanks for the replies guys - and Scrubout; I have found some stained windows - but thats for the painting process.....:evilgrin:

This is truly an amazing undertaking, well done for the effort thus far!

I have some suggestions. A leviathan is not just a regimental HQ it will also be the spiritual HQ of the regiment. A mobile monument to the emperor and regiment. So i think you should stick some statues on there to represent past heros and commanders of the regiment. These could be alcoves with them "in action" use vostroyan minis or they could be "at rest" using the Robed figures from the CoD buildings laying on some kind of coffin.

Just some random ideas I had whilst reading this thread!

I have seen these, and i would really like to make them with Vostroyans to get the feeling of Vostroya in the vehicle like STATIC GRASS mentioned..But i am terrible at Photoshop, so if anybody outthere can make these of off some of Blanches artwork, that would be super nice....

Again - to you all, Thanks for all the replies an interest in this little project of mine - it really keeps me motivated, and wanting to do the best i can with this - and i think its coming along nicely (fit in between work and everyday life)....;o)

He he - get to work, its actually quite fun to build, and come up with different ways to detail it and build it up!
Yes the admech symbol is a bugger to clean up, but i just saw yours, and great job on that, you even kept the line from the symbol edge - i filed that off, because it was eaisier...;o)

I would say facing the landing platform would look better. Would make sense, too. (incoming aircraft, vox-casting)

04-03-2007, 19:06
Looking good! I think it's great pointed forwards, but perhaps you should try out and see how it looks if you just angle it a bit to the side, to give the illusion that it is turning around (even though it physically can't)?

BTW, you could have entire Necromunda games on top of that bad boy. :D

I'd recommend you to follow VERITAS' tip, and the fact that in the real world it would be able to rotate makes it viable even though it does cover the landing platform a bit.

Man size doors, so that the troops can actually get in. Right now they seem to have to walk in through the back in the giant tank door.

Not only is this thing awesomeness in plastic card form but it also looks like you are going to finish it.

So the open spaces.... will you use some plasticard to create an armoured plate effect? You could also use some textured sheets of either concrete slabs or of "dry stone" type effects.

I think this thing could use some banners. The only think better than a leviathan is a leviathan with flags. :)

You could use textured paint to give it a rougher look to accent drybrushing? It would make it look a bit more fortressy and less steel construct though.

Otherwise, you could use an exacto-knife and metal ruler to score light lines in the flatspaces. When painted this will create texture. I'm not sure how solid the interior construction is, so this technique maybe hazardous.

The doors on the side are 6 cm high - so enough space for a Vostroyan and a Space Marine to get through! That give 6 accesspoints. The hatches on the upper hull, are meant as escape hatches for the commandcrew...;o)

I am not too keen on anything crashed on the front - but i am thinking about making a large dozerblade.... :eek:

Yes - i will finish it..:angel: I have already made alot of details on the sides, and more will come - so i am kind of waiting to see it with primer, before i make any decisions about that...

And banners i have thought alot about, but right now, i don't know where to put them....:confused:

I want to keep the steel look - thats why i am not to keen on roughcoat, but it will have to wait until the first coat of primer hits it.

There would be no structurel issues with scoring it a bit, but i have added alot of detail, and i am not finished yet - so i will have to see, if i think it looks finished...:eyebrows:

Pure, unadulterated awesome. I'm new to this thread, so i'm bringing up an old point, but to the naysayers about smoke launchers: it needs them for atmospheric smoke for the upper layers to loom out of.:D

07-03-2007, 00:49
Oooh I like the idea of a great big dozerblade, with an Aquila on the front it would look very impressive.

The pad and AA guns are looking very nice as well. I agree you need to make sure you put plenty of support under it. You wouldn't want the Arvus falling off the end...

Talking of smoke launchers I went to see Nine Inch Nails sunday night and if the Leviathan was fitted with the smoke generators they used that night it'll easily cover up the Leviathan...we could barely find the door at the end.

To make railings, simply buy large metal mesh. It usually comes in rolls and has various lengths between links. Simple cut it right and you'll have posts and crossbeams that you can run around the entire outside of your platform.
