I know, but this thing is only half the size of an m10 or m18. It's actually a lot smaller than the armoured car above, so much so I'm wondering if Warlord have actually fucked up the scale.

Bought my first GW model for nearly two years yesterday, or rather, had it bought for me. A SM librarian that up to now I refused to pay €25 for. With the (hopefully) imminent new SW codex I decided to make it into a Rune Priest and enter it in this month's conversion comp.



I thought it might take a while, but I got it done in a couple of hours. I only ended up using the arms, head and rear torso (minus the cloth and plus the wolf pelt) of the Libby, everything else is SW. The back pack is from Canis. I really like the way the bones on it appears to halo the psychic hood.

I absolutely love that Librarian model, but the price tag makes me flinch away every time I'm lovingly caressing its blister pack in the store. Same goes for the limited run "special captains" (Master of Supplies, Master of Recruits, whatever they are--the second set of 4 captains that made up an Apocalypse formation, or whatnot).

Same here. I just couldn't spend that much on one mini, when for the same price I could pick up a box of 25 US marines for Bolt Action. However, when the wife offered, I couldn't really say no.

With the forthcoming SW codex, I thought I better get this month's Army Painting challenge units done before the Evil Empire sucks me back in with those sweet new minis. The camo pattern was a bit of a pain to get the way I wanted it, but I'm happy with how it came out. Not sure what I'm doing with the basing yet, so I'll leave it till later in the project.

Looks good! Did the marines change outfits for their fighting in the jungles and beaches of the pacific islands or was it all done in olive drab? Because beach and tropics basing could be rather fun to do.

They mostly wore olive drab, but some units did have access to the double sided camo uniforms like the helmet cover. I will toy with some camo smocks and trousers in the rifle squads when I get around to them. It should be interesting, because if I do a shirt in the brown pattern, I'd have to do the collar in the green or vice versa, because they were reversible. As for basing, I'll probably go with a sandy base with some sort of jungle foliage.

Go for it. It's a great system,definitely the most enjoyable I've played in 25 years of wargaming. On top of that you can get a whole 1000pt army on the table for the same price as an Imperial Knight.

More SW goodness. I bought the stormwolf over the weekend, but am waiting to get a few more bits for a conversion I have planned for it, but couldn't resist making an Iron Priest from the pilot bits to enter in this month's conversion competition, because I wasn't going to put such tasty bits in a cockpit where they'd barely be visible.





The Wolf Lord's council group shot. Hoping to get all these guys painted up in the next month or so.

More USMC minis. I was hoping to have considerably more of this army done by now considering I've had a good bit of spare time lately, but it was not to be. A medic team, sniper, and the bones of a rifle squad. There's also a hint at a new(old) project in the back there as well.



Gotta love Blood for the Blood God.
