Thanks!

Anyway, here's my Leman Russ Punisher!





That's 32 shots a turn at BS4! Not bad.

I also redid a couple things on my Commissar Lord (converted Yarrick) and my "counts-as" Straken (converted Rogue trader Marneus Calgar). I just figured that he would be best represented in battle with Straken's stats...



Too bad there are no more trademark items anymore... but I guess the tea table can still be called an objective or something.

Anyway, since I have nothing more to paint, I've decided to start basing my models. Other than that, I'm not sure what my next major project will be. Anyone have any suggestions?

As always, C&C are greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Nice to see more Mordians, they always have been my personal favorite IG army.

Anyway, my next project will be a penal-legion based branch of my army. That will include 50 conscripts, 2 or 3 penal squads, and their Commandant, a counts-as Captain Chenkov.

Here he is:







He's the only one in my army with a completely black uniform (not including the gold trims...). Just a pointless fact.

I think I might also make a carapace armoured command squad, with a converted "Officer of the Fleet" as the officer. Stay tuned!

C&C are always appreciated.

Thanks!

Well, here's another small update: a Chimera!



Now my command squad is a little bit safer from enemy fire...

And one more thing, I have now based my entire army!



Just simple grass/gravel, but it works, and personally I'm surprised how much it adds to the whole look of the army.

I have another 3 squads of Mordians on order, and I plan on adding a couple more Chimeras, so stay tuned.

C&C are always appreciated.

On the few models that I actually have finished basing (grumble grumble) I have found that painting the edge of the bases the same color as the flock adds to it. The black edges disrupt the look you're going for by basing them to begin with.
