I am back to it after many months of working a little too hard. Tonight, I decided to do a stocktake of what I have ordered since April. I am amazed at what I have found and that my bank doesn't seem to be showing where it all came from - double win!

I bought a random 'bits' lot off ebay some months back and forgot about it. Here is what I have found (after much sorting and sprue snipping)!

The first image is the most exciting with forgeworld bits, old valhallan vehicle crew, enough non-GW stowage to sink a battleship and enough LR sponsors to fit out a division! The second pic shows a number of IG hulls which unfortunately I don't have enough pieces to finish - but not hard to get and will also make good wrecks for terrain if I feel so inclined. I also now have a basilisk (will take some TLC to get up to scratch) but the parts are there! The stack of sprues in the second image are ALL LR/Chim accessories with almost no parts missing - WIN!

I also found:

These will complete my vendetta SQN of 3 and that will be my first commissar (who seems to be a favourite since the AM codex was released). On that note, since AM was released during my 'hobby holiday', I am also working on a new list for the 4Bde formation to play with.

I also found:


I will be opening a terrain log separately, but thought I should add the new bits here in the interim:

I have also got a long list of old things that aren't constructed, including:
- 3x sentinels
- 40x guardman
- 3x HWT
- 2x PCS

I think I have my construction work set out for the next few months, but the 51st Coronan are taking form again!

Ooooh I look forward to seeing those Battle Tanks restored to glory. And I must say those FW Commissars have always been particularly badass in my book.

That's a lot of crack....

I must admit, I always had aspirations of being a (40k) tank restorer by purchasing chassis' like that off eBay etc and then getting parts in with a small budget in order to complete them :)
I look forward to seeing your progress! :good:

Alright team,

So with a little extra time on my plate this evening I have commenced the LRBT reconstruction project. With a spare turret dragged out of a bulk deal I picked up last week and a dig in my overly large bits box I give you the first restored LRBT to add to my collection.


The hull mounted weapon is exchangeable for any of the new-gen weapons and I will be adding some stowage/antennas and making a magnetised barrel for use as a regular LRBT. The FW turret does have its own charm so will ensure any modifications do not impede its natural beauty!

Thoughts? Ideas?

...and here is this morning's effort. Recovery of the chimera chassis in my early post into a functioning basilisk. A lot of destruction had to take place first with all the old style track system being taken apart, cleaned/trimmed modified and put back together correctly. I am particularly happy with how the loader and comms relay came out in this one.


As always, more stowage will be added and I will post the final product.

I am back at it again. With the Fall of Cadia and integral role of the Coronan fleet in its defence, the 51st are back into notoriety!


I have done a stock-take again and the mountain of painting ahead of me is almost drawing a man-tear, luckily I have "inspiration " from a number of Inquisitors to guide me.



I have been working on getting my Inquisitorial force some transport and body guards and as you can see in the 'to do' pile, I have a long way to go. In my former style, lots of vehicle mods - including Taurox wheel mods from Blood and Skull Industries, multi-kit crews and Baneblade (the biggest) cupolas on the Taurox (the smallest) AM vehicle. Great fun!



I have also started playing around with press moulds with limited success, but great for replicating simple but desirable pieces.

Getting back into painting

Today's efforts have been fruitful with Iraqiel assisting in motivating me to paint again. Works include a number of sentinals (images to be posted on completion) and my Valkyrie, which has taken me far far far far far far far too long! Here's hoping the remaining 4 are a little faster...



I also managed to complete a few more little modelling projects, including Inquisitor Greyfax

As I mentioned in one of my last posts, the Sentinels are coming along. The first six have now been built and magnetised - time consuming and I will be selective with the next few to just the weapon types I will be using when I field them all at once.

The first three are now painted. I have had a great time working with GW Dry and Texture paints for the first time and found them to really make things easier!

Let me know what you think:

Dude I am loving your camouflage pattern. The Valkyrie and sentinels are looking great. Keep up the good work and you'll be through your sea 🌊 of grey in no time.

That Valkyrie is excellent.
