    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    1st update:
    Found my camera





    This is the test Scheme, trying for Waffen SS autumn camo, the auto guns instead of las guns because i think they're a lot cooler.

    And some WIP shots of my Hardened Vets





    Comments and critisisms welcome.

    Cheers

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    I'm really liking the scheme. Also the Hardened Vet sarge is in a very dynamic pose. Your autogun conversion is simple, yet extremely effective. After seeing your Traitors, I am full of hope for this army.

    please don't give every last trooper an MP-40-alike. They may all have them in the Indiana Jones films, but most soldiers still had rifles. It is a very nice conversion though and I love the camouflage.

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    Those are some cool conversions, I especially like the detail like the exposed trigger finger on the painted trooper. Nice colour scheme as well. What does the runic "s" on the side of the helmet designate?

    Your converted lascarbines or autocarbines are extremely nice, your camouflage scheme is good and your hardened veterans is very good. Keep us updated!

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    totally inapropriate for someone of my advanced age but ....DUUUUUUUDE, SWEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!.

    Fantastic job on the camo, really nice representation of the autumn oakleaf. please tell me any vehicles (drop sentinels.... it is possible to convert if you dont want to FW them) will be in an appropriate german camo (The 4 tone winter one springs to mind).

    In fact don't waste time to tell me....just get on with it and create more!!

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    Lovely conversions! I fell in love with your autoguns. Simple, yet very effective. The helmet is good, and I too loved that trigger finger.

    The camo is awesome as well. My only criticism is that you highlighted the underside of the backplate, helmet and shoulderpad. It looks a bit weird to me.

    Keep it coming, I feel inspired to start cutting away at my own lasguns now )

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    Thankyou all for your kind comments, makes me much surer(sp?) of the camo scheme.

    Robot2000: Most of them will have the sub-machine gun style auto-guns, I think it looks more like a MP-5, or even a Tompson, the Mp-40 would have a skinnier body and longer barrel.
    I am toying with the idea of a section sniper, not as the heavy weapon, like some modern day ranger units have a single soldier armed with the M-14, maybe a las gun with a scope, hmmmmmmmm thinking thinking. . . .

    Crazy Ivan: The S on the test guys was a bit of a laugh that turned out looking good, since the scheme is SS based i thought what bthe hell and painted an S. now it looks good and i'm not sure if i should keep it.
    If i do keep it it will become the regimental symbol for the Sturmmtruppen drop regiment.

    Konrad: What do you mean? They don't have it I figure if every model in the army has the same or similar army and i pay the points for carapace, then they have carapace.
    one of the armies strengths is the camo, and too much armour would cover too much camo. Plus i'm going for the elite regiment look, and like delta force my guardsmen may modify they're uniforms at will, some may end up with more armour, we'll see.

    Old Guard: Thankyou, high praise from someone of your prolific and quality guard collecting calibre. Which winter camo scheme in particular? Got a link? I was thinking of simply painting it in oakleaf too.

    Thankyou all again for your interest and comments, any ideas etc please let me know.

    Cheers

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    Where is the Veterans Power Fist from? It looks familiar but I don't know from where. I've been trying to figure out how to give some of my DKoK power fists.

    They look good! Looking forward to more!
    look up pistachio nuts too, they're classes as an explosive substance - thats SC's really rubbish and irrelevant fact of 2007, don't be expecting more

    Re: Sheeps Laying a log

    I'll se if I can find a picci, it was a variation on the 3 tone scheme of then used. instead of sand, grey was used (slightly darker than codex) red brown (terracota/bestial mix) green (catachan would do) and white. Butas i said I'll have a hunt tonight and see what I can find.
    oakleaf on a vehicle might look 'too busy' if you know what I mean.

    re the 'S'; a single one with possibly an arrow on the bottom signifying a lightning strike would not be IMO bad taste.
