    Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    While I had the camera out I thought I'd take some pics of the rest of the family:

    here's the Praetorian troops:

    Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    and this is the heavies:




    Thanks to St. Ebay I've been able to fill the gaps in the FOC with actual metal Praets..

    they're fresh out of camp basecoat now and not yet very interesting - hence: no pics of them

    again for the troops: the immediate goal was to get them to tabletop standard - final highlights on metal, helmets and .. well _all_ final highlights to be done yet..

    Those models are excellent, but I think the scale could be a serious problem. Even so, I love the Praetorians; particularly the sanctioned psyker.

    Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    Thank you all for the kind comments!

    @ Col.Gordon: I'm still undecided as to the 'time-frame' of the Teutons. While I've tried to keep them in period with the Praetorians, any Tanks I've thought of so far would move them straight forward to WW1 - So, maybe I'm going to split them up into different armies at some point. The wish-list would then include the Scibor Ogryns and the Hasslefree Ratlings...

    @ Equalizer: Very nice! Consider them added to my 'to paint' list


    Now, this is the previously mentioned Mordians in their role as Armoured Fist.
    I had to play with the brightness again - the driver does not wear that canary coloured hair-hat in real life..
    As you can see on Mr. Leftmost Trooper I went for a shaven-head-look with some of them. I think it goes nicely with that grim Mordian underbite of theirs..

    Thumbs up Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    That's a bloody brilliant army you got there, Zemlod! I like the 19th century style Prussians;most especially their blue color scheme.

    Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    Your units are really excellent!
    I'm in love with the Praetorians for a long time and the Prussians are just in the right way!
    regarding tanks, I think you could do the job using WW1 british MarkIV as basis, it sould be rather easy to add LR sponsons and details without altering the vintage look of the vehicle.

    Fun fact of the day:
    An accidental basecoating of your carpet can be remedied by scrubbing it with generous amounts of Kaptn' Yoho's Genuine Ye Olde .

    True, the room now smells as if I had more serious issues than a coupla pound of unpainted lead, but more serious repercussions (gf, landlord etc.) have been avoided!

    I do like the variant schemes you've chosen. Nice vivid colors on some great models from the IG range! Definately am looking forward to more.

    A big thumbs up from here an all, especially like the Pysker which actually works really well in red IMHO, gives me a couple of ideas, excellent take on the heavy weapons also!

    Ah, Col.Gravis, coming from you that means,
    ehm,
    that you've noticed I've nicked your ideas . .

    But, seriously, once I had seen the Gravis Pattern Bolter, there was no way of going back to SCT ones... Spent a decent sum on bits and parts when the mailorder bitsbox excel-sheet-of-death came out, but there you go, once someone sets a standard, it doesn't do to appear sloppy .. )


    For a change of pace from painting squads, now for something rather different:

    These chaps will "cout as" the medic for the HQ.

    Not sure if I'll actually /use/ a medic though, but the idea wouldn't go away, so I had to build it.

    I think I shall call it 'Malingering'






    sorry for the quality of the pics, after some trouble with the old Photoshop I've had to edit them in paint. It actually felt like having to work at the autoexec using edlin . . .

    Cool, and also very different, what exactly's going on though? I assume they're digussing the logistics of weather or not the fallen soldier is worth healing?

    Re: Imperial Guard - An Edifying Pictorial of Progress

    Hehe,
    though I must admit I was thinking of a less grim situation than you, Mr. El Presedente, something more along the line of Pvt. Hookie..
    Maybe the two are discussing whether Hookie's claim of not being able to stand and fight due to having received a Slugga round to the leg constitutes malingering ("What? Shot? Maybe grazed, possibly shot-ish, but fight he will, fight he will!")
    I quite like his resignated look - you just don't need to try to talk sense into the Imperial bureaucracy..

    I was thinking the same thing. Deciding weather to shoot him and send his gear back to the commissary to be reissued.
