Some very good and creative conversions, the G.K librarian in particular looks great, and bearded soldiers a nice touch, have a cooooookie

Thanks @Moriouce and @Oldman78 !

Truth be told the bearded Catachans weren't my idea, though I did the shirtless wonder of a sergeant's beard. My buddy whose army this was differentiated all of his Veteran squads by hair styles but didn't finish a couple squads before moving across this vast country of ours and selling his Guard collection to me (so he knew it would continue to crush the enemies of the Imperium). They're also all colour coded, blue, red, green, and now yellow. Don't know what I'm going to do when I get to painting the two 30 man blobs of Infantry that the army is calling to me to add (already have one built and ready to go).

The GK Librarian was a lucky extra model in a trade, I got 5 terminators and in the box were just the perfect bits to make this guy. Sure I had to cut some stuff off and hide my work with some GS as well as position the arms in a more suitably awesome manner, but I think he'll look like a total badass painted up. I kinda want to paint his fist glowing and have been tempted to model some GS energy crackling around his hand. Think I should or would it look tacky?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

A fist glowing around the edges would look cool, modeling in crackling energy may look tacky if you do not pull it off right

I know this is fire, but it also looks pretty cool. Could try to make it look like the power is dripping off his fist.



Or I could just go real simple and just add a bit of texture to his hand so that it looks a little cooler when I'm painting (I have a feeling I'll end up making it look like a blue armoured hand )...either way I think I'll give it a few shots next time I have some spare GS mixed up. I have a few little projects that I'll need some for in the future...I really should get a big white board and list all my hobby projects for organizational purposes.

Woo restored Basilisk! It only took about an hour and a half of glue/plastic shaving, cutting of weird things, and GSing that front fender (pretty much just went: "well, that's good enough" hahaha).



I just couldn't be bothered to try and cut those flamer-looking tanks off the tread covers. This guy used more plastic glue than comes in a bottle on this model.

Huzzah! Death to the enemies of the Emperor of Mankind!

Well, the tanks could be fine, maybe just make them look like a fire extinguisher rack and it would actually be rather like modern military vehicles...

Hopefully the price justified the amount of restoration required!

I'm torn. I might just angrily cut away at it and then model some sandbags across the front or something.

She cost just a bit less than $20 USD, and most of that time was spent GSing the front panel because I had it mint and then put my thumb in it while addressing something else. FML. I simply don't have the patience to get the stupid thing back to where it was

Huttah! Hobby stuff that isn't scenery. My new Chaplain with Valour's Edge:





I still need a to do a little bit of work on his wrists, but he's pretty well finished. Magnetized back pack/jump pack of course.

I decided he didn't look too good with the tiny SG jump pack that I often use for characters. Tossed some BA bangles onto one of the bigguns and it looks way better, but that fancy left shoulder pad has to go. In breaking it off I had to remove the arm...the crozius...and his sword hand needed subtle re-positioning....

OK so I'm basically back where I started. He will look cool though.

New shiny might delay/distract from getting it done:



One unit of Sternguard coming up, plus (the right colour/quality) red basecoat! Love it, considering it takes me 45 minutes to get a good coat of Mephiston Red over a full model...

Let the reddening begin!



I have to build up some models. I have more Tactical marines (hopefully enough to fill out my third 10 man squad), those Sternguard, and 10 Death Company to get glued together.

...and that's just mah Blood Angels!
