Well, aside from wanting better pics, they look very nice, especially the silencers, and from what i can see paint job looks good. Good luck in your competition!

Right, the Stormtrooper Project has not been abandoned!!!!

Here, I present the promised better pics of my competition entry...









Thoughts anyone?

Next on the block for these chaps is the sergeant; I've got him completely built, so I'll likely start painting him tomorrow. After that, it'll be on to the rest of the squad. I recently procured enough parts to finish off a whole squad, though for the moment they'll likely have only a single heavy weapon (a plasma gun, I think).

So yeah, that's where the project stands now...oh, and another note, I'll be entering the entire squad as a group for the Heresy Online Conversion Contest! Hey, I can dream, can't I?

Nice stuff and an interesting camo scheme.

Love the cut down weapons and look forward to seeing the sarge.

Very nice work, dig the power feeds. I would like to suggest that you thin your paints just a tad more as it will make for a smoother finish on the final models. Keep it up.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks for the advice, Wraith; I'll be thinning the paint a bit more for the next batch

Well, I got a nice little package in the mail today...



Four of these chaps will get promoted to the Storm Trooper Project; the rest'll get a couple heavy weapons and form two additional squads. And for the sake of completeness, I'm planning to convert the Sentinel to Cadian pattern...I'll be building an enclosed crew compartment out of platicard, replacing the multilaser with an autocannon and generally making it more bad-arse.

So yeah, gotta go find my paints, now...they sorta got lost in the shuffle during my move back home from my first year of college. They've gotta be 'round here somewhere...

Hehe, well, sorry for the double post, but...


First off, I finally found the paints, so I'll be getting on with the painting soon enough. In the meantime, I converted up a plasma gunner for the squad...




And yes, in keeping with the theme I seem to have established for my army, the cylinder in his left hand will indeed be a beer can...in fact, I'm thinking of embellishing that banner I just got with the Guinness logo...hmmm....
