I strongly encourage anyone who is looking at starting an army or is working on changes/new units for an existing army to take a few moments to think how it fits in to the GW universe and what you want the army to be. Something as simple as wanting a model you like and a few other units to make a list is enough as a base for a story line and could inspire you to develop the army beyond what you first thought. As a simple idea on this theme consider giving your units battle honours: every time a LRBT destroys a significant enemy unit, paint on a tally mark or add a decal to celebrate the victory; or if your platoon wipes a mean unit in close combat, consider adding a momento (eg: a helmet) from the defeated unit to the bases of some of the models. Something that quick and simple really adds to your army over time.

A really impressive thread all round. Just spent some time reading through it.
I look forward to seeing this army develop.

These look great, the conversion work really makes them stand out from being 'cadians in urban outfits'.
Also like the fluff you've built around them - its important to have a story for the plastic toy soldiers!

Barrage weapons ready to fire!
This week has been a little slow, even over the longer weekend. I have made some good progress on two Wyverns, the first of which is now finished.
I had some fun playing with the new GW Glazes and have tried them on dials and also the goggles for the guardsmen. I have also played around with layering washes including selectively applying Agrax prior to using the Nuln oil coat over the whole model - this was specifically for mechanical parts that see a lot of wear and discolouration of metallic parts under heat stress such as the end of the barrels.

I have also had some improved success with press moulding. Here are a few scenic effects I have been able to recreate using greenstuff and MODFX press-mould medium.
I am having a lot of fun making progress on the Coronan 51st! A few special characters at the moment to break up all the INF building and painting, but will need to get into the backlog of INF shortly:

Greetings Noble Korhedron.
I took the flying buttress from the GW Administratum terrain kit and removed most of the top section.

I decided to take a slightly different tack this week and have worked on my veteran squads. I have themed them on independant planetary forces from the Corona system:
I am progressing with the undercoating process and will start painting soon!
