Default Loyalist's Log of All That's Good And Holy!!!

Righty, well, I figured I'd start up a thread chronicling my continuing forays into the world of small plastic and metal men, as work on the Storm Troopers has been a bit slow lately and I'm frankly getting tired of posting random selections in Painting & Modelling....

So, as it stands, I've got a fairly substantial collection of Guard and Marines (42nd Cadian Shock and Storm Guard, respectively) as well as the beginnings of a Witch Hunters contingent. I'll get some group shots and post them tomorrow, as I don't really have decent ones right now...

My current projects are a trio of heavy weapon teams I recently bought, converting a Sentinel, and a wrecked Leman Russ I'm entering in a competition on another forum...




Details of the individual projects...







So, tomorrow's work (for reference, it's just past 1 am where I am)...start paint on the heavy weapon teams, start sandbagging the living hell out of my tank wreck, find plasticard to build an armored crew compartment for the Sentinel and to fill in holes in my tank wreck, and get army shots for this thread....

Oh, and a logistical note...I'll be posting progress on my Storm Trooper Project in its dedicated thread. Everything else I do (at least until I do a non-Imperial force.....) will go here.

Thanks for looking!!

Funnily enough, finding a supplier wasn't the difficult part...I just haven't used my sheets of plasticard in about 8 months or so, and I've got no idea just where the hell I've put it...

Well, not much progress so far...but I did get group shots!

My small Witch Hunters contingent...




My DIY Space Marine army (Storm Guard)...




And my growing Guard Army...




I counted up points for my Guard today; to my complete shock, I've actually made it over the 1500 mark...and it's a completely game-legal force! As it's my first legal army, I'm fairly chuffed....now to get it all painted....

Thanks for the comments!

Yeah, I'm looking into conversion possibilities for my Witch Hunters...a test mini is in the very near future.

Well, got caught up in another side project...making a fully decked-out, kilted and bearded bagpiper for my Guard army. It'll count as a Trademark Item for my Colonel. As my green stuff skills really aren't up to the task of sculpting cloth, I went with a different technique...








It's a fairly simple process...I soaked a bit of tissue in watered-down PVA glue, then carefully draped it around the mini. It dries fairly stiff, and generally acts like cloth. I think it turned out fairly well...thoughts?

Next on the list will be finishing my heavy weapon teams, whipping up a test mini for the Witch Hunter conversions, and finally getting some actual work done on my tank wreck.....

Thats a clever idea, i might have to steal that one as my GS-fu skills are lacking when it comes to making cloth / robes of any kind.

Despair all ye nations, there's no hope for us now.
For we made this monster, placed a crown on his brow.
He fed on our apathy; our pain made him swell.
We gave him dominion, he gave us his hell.

By all means; I shamelessly stole the technique from a guy on another forum who used it to make tarps.

Well, progress has been a bit slow of late, but here's what I got...



The first of my Arco-Flagellents. Testing out a paint scheme for them; the cloth will be white with red =]l[= regalia.



Fist look at the test model for the Sisters of Battle conversions I've been contemplating. Basic idea is to have them be fanatical super-storm troopers. I figure I'll paint litanies all over the armor, and the bolter will be connected to the backpack via guitar wire.



Finally, got some more modelling work done on the bagpiper. He'll be carrying the pipes under one arm, with a pistol in the other...my green stuff-jitsu isn't quite up to modelling the arms in the correct position to be playing the pipes.

Well, that's all for now...I'll be trying to complete all of these, in addition to the heavy weapon squads. Should have a bit of time tomorrow, so mayhap you'll see another update then.......

I love your GS beards. I really like the bagpipe player too, it will definately be a unique conversion piece. Keep up the great work.
