    Another IG regiment : the 2nd Selenia

    To be read first :
    I open this thread in January 2008 and I was far from the idea it could be one day 50 page long.
    To help people who maybe want to read it, It is time to add a real summary of the main subjects. It will need a few time to complete but...

    - Arvus Lighter (conversion) : page 52
    - Baneblade (conversion) : page 4
    - Colossus (scratch) : 49/50/51/52
    - Communication tower (scratch) : page 46/51
    - Field howitzer (Scratch) : page 42
    - Griffon (conversion) : page 48
    - Hydra (conversion) : page 40/45
    - Leman Russ (conversion) : page 2
    - Leman Russ LR1bis (scratch) : page 5
    - Light trucks VTL (scratch) : pages 7/8/9/10/11
    - Manticore (conversion) : page 41/44
    - Penal legion (conversion) : page 47
    - Salamander TRC (scratch) : page 3
    - Sentinels (conversion) : page 2/51
    - Skyshield landing pad (conversion) : page 50
    - Tank transporter (scratch) : pages 37/38/39
    - Valkyrie (conversion) : page : pages 18/42



    Hi Guys!
    This is my first attempt to show my figs there.
    The 2nd regiment comes from a world call Selenia and was built with some help from Cadian's advisors. Vehicles, support small arms and even battle equipement come from Cadia because of Selenia's lack of industrial facilites.

    I turn to the IG one year ago and at the beginning my idea was to built a 1500pts army but there is now something awfull called "apocalypse" and I'll try to upgrade to 3000 this year.

    Well...
    The detachement itself :



    Senior officier Illescu and HQ



    The 1troop hardened veterans with assault weapons :





    I hope you like them and try to post regular units and armoured support next time.
    All comments are wellcome.

    That's great! I'd love to see more detailed shots of some of the High Elf-based conversions.

    Mate,

    I am impressed. They are excellent. You have a really different focus with your Army. Great Coats in the desert! T. E. Lawrence would be impressed.

    Re: Another IG regiment : the 2nd Selenia

    Thank you very much for your comments!
    My selenians use coats because I've spend time enough along the TE Lawrence Hijaz railway to know how cold could be the nights during winter!

    I'll try to send some more pic about the conversion : the hardened vets are converted using milliput, but the cadian regimental box lets a lot of arms, head and weaponary remain so I use them with high elves bodies... A perfect way to buy more Elves to finish the bizz, then more Cadians to use the bodies and so on...

    Second post to show the regular platoons :

    Croissant on the helmets is usually used only during peacetime, but most of the boys wear it during battle. Some kind of superstition!



    Yellow is the traditional color of the 2nd and used on the vehicles too.

    I love this autocannon!
    Is it scratchbuild with parts of the heavy weapons teams?

    These guard are great.

    I really like the coats on em. They have a nice, "one of a kind" feel to them. The color scheme is also done very, very, well.

    Can't wait to see more of these guys, great conversions!

    I simply must see more of that auto cannon and chimera.

    The AC reminds me of a bofors mounts, if I am correct.

    Re: Another IG regiment : the 2nd Selenia

    Thanks a lot!

    Some more stuff about the auto cannon.
    At the beginning of my project I was in trouble with the lasguns and auto cannons just because I feel the small plastic tripod was just enough to pass with the Heavy Bolter (nothing more than a heavy machine gun in fact) but look rather pathetic with the heavier weapons. The old metal design looks much better to me.
    Order old design could be a beat expensive so I try to scratch a generic base to use the parts in the heavy weapons boxe and built 3 of each style with one box!

    I start with "historical design". My first idea was to depict the old 2 pounder AT gun, but it was difficult to found usuable tyres so I move to a more germanic Flak 38.
    All my support lascan or autocan use the same base :

    The auto cannon in the AA historical use of the original :




    The Lascan as conventional AT gun :






    The model is full scratchbuilt except the gun and some minor details. The points were at the beginning :
    1) small enough to be fixed on a standart GW big base.
    2) easy enough to be built in large numbers.
    An rather industrial project in fact : the " home factory" only send 10 pieces to the units up today :




    I'll try to send more in progress pics next time!

    Re: Another IG regiment : the 2nd Selenia

    Brilliant! I've been wanting to do the flak 38 for ages though my idea was rather more expensive, just changing the gun on a 1.35th tamyha model. You may consider the idea well and truly stolen albeit it with my thanks

    Do you just use it as a straight autocannon or have you considered AA use in say apocalypse style games?

    I like these guardsmen a lot. Great work on those heavy weapons too!

    The heavy weapons are amazing!

    The guardsmen aren't really to my taste, I like the dirty gritty look in preference to clean flat colours - but it's a nice neat job, certainly.

    No problem at all if you like the models : ideas are made to be stolen!
    Using a Tamiya model could be a way to spare time even not money, but I think the model will be largely oversized to stand on a GW base.
    Building a new carriage is not very difficult if you try to use only easy geometrical parts.

    I've written a tuto on a french page, but I don't know if I'm allowed to use a link there, so I prefer add some more pics to explain the way I work :

    That's a point!
    Usually I use it as autocanon, but it could be great to use it as AA. I've already built a light carrier (count as Salamander today) on a Chimera base with this light auto cannon on the rear just like the WW2 light AA half tracked vehicles. One of my next model will be a Gorgona too.

    Don't see any reason why you can't link to it and at least for some of us there isn't even a language barrier!
    Thanks for the extra photoes very useful. lets see what I can do.
