Ok. So my very recent unit I did is Assault squad. One thing is I didn't know from the beginning that Sergeants are actualy Veterans (reason why tactical sergeant looks quite standard). But when I was working on Assault squad, I read some random articels and there was mentioned all sergeants are Veterans. With this in mind I tried to convert him that way.



Veteran Sergeant. I will use these champion helmets for all veterans but with slight conversion. Very similar to Astelan and pre-heresy DA. Knightly look.

Models look great man, love all the attention to detail in them. Keep it up.

Wow, just read through the whole thing and I gotta say wow. Nice background fluff and your progess is good too seeing improvements in painting and some bloody amazing green stuff I love the idea behind them and the colour scheme is simple but i really like the monochrome broken with the yellow. The terminator Proudlord rocks very good indeedy!

Your assault marine vet seargeants gs is impeccable squire wish my sculpting looked half as neat. Colour me impressed and kepp it up! +rep

Thank you guys! Your support really cheers me up.

I am working right now on Dreadnought banner. Once it is done I will use Instant mold to copy whole banner. It will be easier then, when GS is still soft, to shape banner. It is my first try making banner like that. What do you thing?
Eyes and details on lion head will be painted by hand. However it'd be nice to have whole plastic head,
it is hard for me to do something so small with gs. But any tips are welcome.

I am reworking that lion head on banner. Result should be seen tomorrow. In a meantime, as much as I like working on my models I also like improving background of my chapter. Unfortunatelly, there are more questions than answers so some appropriate literature is needed. Very recently I bought some books you can see below.
I read only Angels of Darkness three years ago and book influenced me a lot. If you like DA background, this is one of the most important books. Gav Thorpe really did them justice and you find book equally shocking and disturbing. Anyone who read it, too ?
Anyway, I really look forward to reveal more mysteries about DA so it will help me make better fluff. Just assuring you I take it seriously



But right now I am putting my effort to dread. I started work on him 2,5 years ago. Shame, I know. But he will be finished this week no matter what. So what is new.

First I had to change Assault cannon. Original one has really short barrels and dread weapons need to look massive. So here is the result.



Second weapon is melee. Not original one but venerable one. I played a bit with fingers so it looks like he is holding something...



something like head of a traitor! Muahaha

So to tease you a bit with dread, I did some extra work on him



I also did extra details for lion head on banner. I wasn't satisfied with plain face and I prefer to use GS/Plasticard rather than simple freehand.

So I got response from guys on our local forum and they think letters look funny to the rest of the model. So I need to change this somehow. Any ideas ??

I have only one idea right now. Get a piece from venerable dread and use those letters. Or just do simple freehand.
