Default Grish's Cadian 88th

Yo peeps

This is going to be my log for my project to make a 'fluffy' copy of Thade's Company of the Cadian 88th Mechanised Infantry, from 'Cadian Blood' by Aaron Dembski-Bowden.

A rough outline so far of units (of the top of my head);

- Thade's CCS
- Techpriest & Servitors
- Seth (counts-as Primarius Psyker)
- Commissar (counts-as Lord Commissar)
- Inquisitor (hopefully he will still be available when 5th Ed C:DH is released)
- Squad Cruor (Stormtroopers)
- Valk. for ^
- 5x Platoons;
- 1x PCS
- 3x Infantry
(possibly stick some Whiteshields (Cadian Youth Legion) in as well)
- 30 Chimeras (said by the book) at the moment i have counted 21, for current set up, plus more for Whiteshield
- Dead Man's Hand (5x Sentinals - 2x squad & 3x squad, operate together)

Previous thread test model (not in final army);






yes the skin is dark, but is was my first attempt at human skin, so improvement is inevitable.

Currently have a Cadian Battleforce to make up, with 4 more to be bought in my mind

more updates when possible, even as soon as this afternoon with WIP shots of the first Sentinal, C-88-P-A, that being C-8-8-Primus-Alpha, Scout-Lieutenant Vertain.

Cheers,

Grish

less than 3 hours since i started the log i have an update but bad-ish pics light was fading, damn clouds

Nothing really exciting but its WIP pics, for assembled/blu-tacked models

My first Sentinal shall be Scout-Lieutenant Vertain, or C-88-Primus-Alpha, it's modelled as 'steel legion' sentinal (according to instructions pah, who needs em) but the book says they have the armoured canopy, and so it shall be. it is tacked together from the legs up as well.





and because i could i have thade, wanted him to be wearing a helmet, but afterthoughts...he look epic without it on.






can't promise an update each day, school's picking up, so i'll post when i can.

Cheers,
Grish

A pretty steady start on the sentinels, nice mix of cool greys and the metallics.

Looking forward to more mate! Have some rep for the start

Looking good thus far, nice to see someone using something from a Black Library novel as their influence. Have some rep Kaptain, I shall be keeping an eye on this thread

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'
