Thanks for all the nice comments and the nice PM's with rep-add-ons (I still gotta figure out what that's all about exactly)!
And sorry for the late reply, but I have been floored by a nasty sinus-infection.
The Wraithlord, thanks for noticing that! You'd be amazed how difficult it is, and how much work it takes to make something look grimey and dirty
The fig that took the most work in the whole sequence of piccies is my Blight Drone, where I passed an insane amount of tipe on the rust...
Forkmaster, the heads from my troops (the helmeted ones with gasmasks) are from WestWind productions. The ones on my Mutants are both from Westwind and from MaxMini.eu.
For all details, check Comrades' thread on gasmasks
where I listed example-piccies and references.
The platforms you refer to are simply the Games Workshop bases, with a rubber, self-adhesive road glued on top.
It's from a company called "Busch" and is called "Kopfstein Pflaster
" (HO 7078)
I add some sand mixed with pebbles here and there, and then paint, drybrush and wash.
Shaantitus, yes, those Hop-Splatta's make for some very good-looking Autocannons, don't they?
Also, they give a nice late WWI, early WWII feel to the whole army, which complements nicely with the gasmasks I'm using.
Gubnutz, like you, I always wanted to do Traitor Guards, mainly because fluffwise they are about the single greatest threat to the Empire that Chaos poses, but are sorrily "forgotten" by GWS most of the time, excluding some specific armylists/unit entries in White Dwarf or campaign Codexes.
Oh, and I haven't shown you guys the following yet :
Turret Emplacements with Battle Cannons :
Two Nurgle Obliterators (for those Apocalypse games) :
And last, bot not in the very least
Valdor Tank Hunter :
Only one super heavy at the moment, but the plans for changing that are ready for execution
