Yeah I was really happy with that conversion, it wasn't planned it was simply because I had a Yarrick mini as part of a bulk purchase but I lost his sword so I couldn't really sell him, I half inched his power claw to use on another mini and it was around the time I was beginning to play around with =I= henchmen so he got thrown in with them, rummage in the bits box later and there he is.

The mini next to him is the "Guardsmen Sniper" from Max Mini: http://maxmini.eu/miniatures?product_id=127 with his head replaced with a Eylsian and some brass rod over the barrel to make a silencer.

Had a not very interesting day of GS'ing the bases to be cobblestoned:







Now begins the even more boring job of painting the bases.

Also been finishing off the conversion of the Dread's legs, not my best work but it does the job and it does look better than the standard lags, I can actually imagine this one being able to step over something bigger than a pebble. I just needed to cover some gaps in the toes which you can see in the bottom image.





And the long slog continues.

Cheers Tor, when those new bits are painted and the base resnowed I'll do a full shot of him, he looks pretty brutal if I do say so myself.

Haven't got much done today other than finishing off these guys:



More pictures to come, I was right about to start taking pictures of them when a mate called about wanting to go for a dive so I had to drop everything and do that, proper pictures of them up early next week as I got stuff to do for the next 5 days during the day.

Also tonight may I present the world's worst freehand:



It's passable I think for a Libby skull, meh even if it's not it will have to do.

If that is the world worst, then I shudder to think about which boundaries I would shatter by trying it.

I really like the dark and shadowy look you have on your Blood Angels - They're visually just up my alley. Have a cookie

Cheers for the kind words guys! I'm not entirely satisified with it but it is passable and he is the last marine in this scheme @Nordicus : one of the joys of having a DIY chapter: you can do anything you want with a color scheme!

Right here is the full squad pics, hope they give you a good idea of what they look like:









I ended up having to completely repaint the banner as I messed it up the first time, I put IV instead of IX, that wasn't a pleasant night.





So that's them done, bit of a moment really I started work on them a little over 3 years ago so it's good to get them done and dusted and while they aren't as converted as I had originally planned (they were going to have the SG wings and JP's) I am fairly pleased with them, the gold helmets worked out well, I was originally quite hesitant of using gold on them instead wanting to use it as for the Captain only but I am liking the VV/HG/SG with them now. Onwards and upwards I now have the Captain, a Landraider and that Sanguinor conversion to go. Guess I should get onto that Landraider then, probably finish that Libby first though, and got two Sentinels to finish fixing and then paint. Be a vehiclely month next month I think.

Oh yeah and also, which head position do you think looks better? In the direction of the hand/backpack mounted weapon (counts as combi flamer) or free of it?





At the moment I am edging towards the latter but does that look too odd?
