Okay, the very simple stuff done, just tacked on with super glue to check the fit. The next phase will be to attempt to make the superfluous but cool looking ammo feed, I'll attempt this with thin strips of plastic card then make mold of it. The other question will be do i mount the ammo hopper on the the arm or attached to his back with longer feed chute.

I think the ammo pack on his back would look better. I alway felt with dreads that the magazines for hard round weapons were too small for the rate of fire they supposedly put out.

A minor update, first on the left we have a wee conversion for my venerable dreadnought, replacing the multi melta with twin Las cannon, I just slightly extended the barrel underneath, I thought it looked cooler, what say ye? The other, a wee gift from wifie proving she actually does love me, lught huron, a fantastic mini!

It's great seeing the progress you're making mate! The army colours look excellent and I'm excited to see where you go with this next dread!

First squad re-based on 32mm bases, because it is cool!
Next squad, using 2 old metal minis, and bolter converted scouts, to look like semi auto rifles to give the squad a "real world" look, the paint schemes are slightly off because I have changed over paints and can't remember what I used originally. Pretty happy with them, and it is about the best I can do so that will be that lol.

The scouts look great! The mesh cloaks came out really well!

Thanks, I had a great photo of them out in my garden on some decorative slate chips and they were hard to make out but photobucket killed it

Excellent work on the snipers.

What about doing a pile of boulders with just a barrel sticking out? Would save on minis, while fitting your theme nicely.

Long term I might stick 2 on a 60mm base with some slate boulders as a shooter/spotter combo, I have to order some regular scout bits to put together another squad of regular bolter scouts. I don't really like whole primaris thing, but the receptor dread is a very cool mini and inceptors are beasts and are a kind steroid version of what assault marines really should be

My attempt at a combi plasma, regular bolter with a chopped up plasma pistol underneath for the whole "real world" underslung weapon look, and the muzzle moved up in line with the cocking handle and ejection port, and the magazine shortened, as I think a 30 round magazine, albeit .75 cal would look small on an astartes

And a picture of the squad Sgt, I added a 2mm spacer in the waist and added some cut down pouches, it is not proper true scale but serves enough to fit in the belt kit
