Yet again it has been a while ago i have posted something and for that i apologize.... again... School, work, GF and painting for other people has given me little time to work on my own project, specially now that the exams in school are gonna be soon.
Since it was my birthday some days ago (YARRRR) i recieved some awesome gifts from some on my m8's (thanks guys!!) that should help me with my project:
As i have explained before i want to clearly show who are the newcomers (fallen, renegade, gone rogue) and who are the veterans in my army.
Hopefully you also will the the difference between my regular CSM and all elites, fast attacks and heavy support (marines).
for quite sometime i knew how i want my havocs to look like, it might come as a shock but i dont like the GW havocs, and specially not when they almost are one piece models, where i cant equip them as i desire. For that reason i have decided to use
Death guard upgrade kit combined with mark 2 leggings, arms and backpack AND LEGION AUTOCANNON SET
some people might think DUDE have you seriusly bought all that to make a unit of 5?
Yes i have, since i want my army be something i can be proud of (ofc i have to paint them awesomely!!!) and idd it have been very very expensive but i think the result will be worth it.
I must say it was a big job assembling them
but enought text you probably want to see some pics
if you watch the pictures of the Death guard upgrade kit on FW's page the upgrade kit is a different mark than the arms and leggings, and i wanted to void that (i have been researching what mark the death guard upgrade kit is, and it seems to be either mark 2 or 3), at the same time i think the looks of the mark 2 and 3 are alot better, but you decide
a little advice or trick, sometime the pieces just does not fit as shown in the picture here:
but if you place the miniature under hot water (really hot, it's gonna hurt a bit becuase you have to have your miniature and your hands under the runing hot water under the entire process, but you have to be patient!!!) in that way you can bend the resin a bit, but remember be patient or else you will break it!
when you are done hurry and turn the cold water on, as cold you can for a couple of seconds so the resin gets hard again and keeps its new position (sorry for my bad english i am doing my best! but let me know if its nonsense!)
it only works on resin!
after that close the small gab with some green stuff
now pictures of the entire unit!
