The sword is just dead on.
I think You are planning to build a Knight, maybe a Warden ?

I've not been up to all that much lately but I still have something to show you later on (unpainted (Sorry, Tossidin!)). But I can't resist the urge to update when the thread has reached - 10 000 views!

Thank you all for the continuing support of this Project!

Thank you for the +reps and kind comments and input in this thread as well as the private messages. They are what keeps me at it - without you I'd probably have put this project on ice a long time ago.

Once again, thank you all

There will be more of them in the future, the long term plan is a unit of 15 Death Company Marines and a land raider crusader transport for them. But before I commit myself to free-handing a white land raider I need to fill out my army with other units!

Woho! Exactly! You shall receive an internet cookie!
I've seen some knights on warseer that are just superb (such as the one in "Sheep"'s log or the one in "the damned artificer"'s log ) but when browsing, through the BOLS rules, the fluff and old epic miniatures, the one that caught my eyes was the Warden. Although I'm not going to stay true to the epic miniature (which looks pretty organic and, to say the least, odd) but rather more hard-edged approach (such as the Imperium is "nowadays")

The pieces I'm lacking for now are on their way via mail (whirlwind, basilisk gun shield, thicker plasticard and such). Hopefully it will be a side project that I'll build on for quite some time ahead and actually finish. If it turns out well I'll most likely build another knight (because I just love them!).

----

I promised you some unpainted miniatures. A little background to these two: the Sanguinary Priest I made earlier (the one with wings seen here) just didn't make it for me when I sat him on the table to play so I decided that I need to make some new priests that would be dedicated "foot sluggers" (i.e. no magnetized backpacks and no angelic wings).

After a ramble through the bit boxes and some cuts here and there I was able to make some rough poses. My favourite is the one with the power sword (both miniatures have magnetized right arms so I will be able to change their load out if needed) as I'm very pleased with the way he's holding the weapon. I will of course green stuff in the gaps and add some details to them but I think you get idea of where they are going:

Till next time!

I can't remember when I last, or even if I have, given you rep for this amazing log xeno. So here we go anyway, have a delicious rep cookie :D

It really is amazing to see how far the project has come between page 1 to 14. What are your current plans for the army? Are you just collecting and painting as you please, or are you aiming to achieve a set list?

Keep up the great (and motivating) log, mate.

Grish

First goal is 1k points, which I'm closing in on! I need to paint my Death Company Transport to reach that goal (lol, I realy should finish that one).

The next goal after that is 2k points. Which units I do paint is pretty much up to the whims of the Gods. But I'm trying to stick to Troop units as much as possible now (before I get carried away by Sternguards and more tanks). Then again I can't give you any promises, which I guess is one reason to follow this plog - you never know what I might do next.

The final goal can be seen at the very beginning of the thread, I have a list of units I which to add to the army there (which changes from time to time).

Thanks for the +rep and comment.

Thank you for the kind words and +rep, Kobrakai. I'm glad to see you continuing your work on the Iron Lords, they keep me motivated to struggle on with finishing of actual UNITS and not just single miniatures.

Thank you for the comment!

And the answer to the question I already sent to you as a PM.

----

I've been fiddling around with basing, trying to come up with something that's pretty fast to make and looks ok. This proves to be the perfect opportunity to try things out on bases that aren't going to have miniatures on them - in comes objective markers (of which I need at least 6 in theme with the army)!

I had some initial ideas that all of them would include birds of some kind, then I realised that would require way to much sculpting for something not worth any points. Almost every birds needs a nest though...?

I figure that an abandoned Phoenix/Huma Bird egg at risk of falling in the hand of the enemies would make a rather tasty objective for my Brethren:


----

The look I'm trying to get is "ash waste/desert".

What do you think about the basing? Does it look convincing or is it still to much "badly painted pieces of flock/grain"?

----

As soon I'm done with the Death Company Squads basing I'm reposting them with fluff on every marine. Hopefully I'll have time to do that tomorrow!

Till next time
