    Inso,

    So you have street cred now. I see over on the kickstarter that a certain Gavin Thorpe like's your sculpts as well.

    I already had street cred... just not with GW before ... or through sculpting... It's nice that he likes my work though .

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Just a heads up. There is all sorts of craziness happening at Macrocosm... lots of stuff is being added to the store and a lot of it is conversions of my sculpts (by other sculptors!!!). Worth a look... especially here :

    https://www.macrocosm.co.uk/product/...warf-beastmen/

    Completely surprised me, they did .

    Re: A New Squat Army

    These guys will add another section I think and you have done well to give lots of choices in Squads. The beards make it so easy to add even more versions. Looking forward to the Vox Troopers.

    Cheers . With these four, it gives 19 different Lasgunners to choose from... which is plenty of variety... especially with different coloured beards/skin . I've started the Comms troopers and have already sculpted the Comms-Packs. I just need to sculpt three heads, one arm and three cables to link the Comms-Packs to the headsets . I should have them finished by the end of the week .

    Re: A New Squat Army

    The last three sculpts for this project have now been finished ... three Comms-Troopers:



    Once I have repaired the feet, they'll be packed up and sent off for casting... THEN... I guess I need to continue painting them all .

    Here's a link to a lovely collage :

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Some heads and Vox equipment right? So we have three more Troopers then as well. That's AWESOME! They look great variety in Vox Troopers has always been hard. We now have four types for one Army. Did I say AWESOME.

    Jacka they are Scaley Backs mate, not regular troopers. though i do say the coms gear they are packing is deffo too small for the grim dark, more akin to Bowman digital gear rather than dark age Clansman radio

    Re: A New Squat Army

    I kept the comms gear small because Squats are more technically advanced than the imperium so their tech would not need to be as big . Also, this is battlefield comms... not interstellar comms so I wanted to keep it small. If you want to say it's "too small" for grim-dark, where is the T'au comms gear? One little antenna sticking out of a helmet .

    It was always the plan to convert extra comms troopers from standard infantry... and I needed four to cover my army so I converted an extra three .

    Inso,

    I agree they do have a lead on tech as they have not become victims of the Martian Creed and still have innovation as a creed.

    Armholeeio,

    They still look AWESOME though.

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Well... the wheels have fallen off the sculpting wagon for now. I have a couple of WIPs that will stay that way for now... I have run out of sculpting mojo for the time being.

    Also... I have a new Kitten ... so sculpting can do one while I settle the new family member in to our home .

    deffo feel the lack of hobby mojo. Work has been busy and with twelve hour shifts more so. Trying to get in to my garage and do something has been a struggle recently, hopefully we both get it back soon buddy.

    Re: A New Squat Army

    It's been a while but there has been a little movement on the army project (last week).

    I have received the penultimate batch of resin casts (the last seven that were sent off - officer with Infinity Gauntlet, officer with dog and 5 lasgunner head-swaps) and have sent the final head-swaps off for casting (4 lasgunners and 3 comms specialists). I had to wait two months for the latest casts due to Covid related stuff so I am glad to finally get my grubby mitts on them .

    I have cleaned up the resin casts, washed them and have glued them to their bases, ready for the green stuff tidy (gaps in bases and the odd air-bubble... and some rather disappointing breakages but nothing I can't deal with).

    I don't know when the latest miniatures will be available for sale but I hope it will be a bumper Kickstarter that will fill in all the gaps. That said... I'm only the sculptor and once I've sent the miniatures off, that's my job done.

    Once I have primed my latest batch (after fettling), I'll post up some pix .

    EDIT - I decided to post a pic before they are painted because it's going to take longer than planned to get them ready, due to the humidity at the moment ...



    I just have to repair a few bits and drill the barrels now .

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Not many people can claim they have really built an Army from the bottom. You have really brought the Squats alive again and made a solid Army with great death and character. As one of the fanboys here I can't wait for the rest of the Troopers.
