Thanks as always - just six more infantry, a special forces - special project (afriel strain) and a commissar to go!

LGW: The blue is not too complex...

Basecoat: Enchanted blue
Next: Hawk Turquoise over half to a third (more towards the 'top' - which may vary depending on what surface - outer might be a better way of putting it)
Next: Ice Blue (around half the previous again)
Next: Space wolves grey (highlight only)
Finally Skull white on the very edges

Cheers Laney

@ LGW: You gotta try the Power-Sword Tutorial Laney made some time ago (LINK) Follow the recipe he gave. Seems complicated... until you do it. Laney has a knack of making the "complicated" becoming "stupidly simple". Perfect for people like us (you and me) that need some help painting. Wink

It shows that Laney is a Teacher!

DAIMN LANES! That some FINE shizzle!

I always love how you manage to make a messy camo scheme look good. I want your skills!

Thanks Arachas! Always nice to be appreciated - I will get that camo tutorial done at some point!

No more pics - but I have converted an Afriel Strain Trooper to be a counts as Kasrkin HG (pics to follow - battery has died on my camera).

3. Lieutenant ‘Curious' George 42 (Autogun) 22
4. Sergeant ‘Scavvy’ Baldrick 36 (Autogun) 22
5. Sergeant ‘Zulu’ Rorke 36 (Autogun) 22

Hired Guns... (this fits the fluff for these guys)

6. Commissar Edmund Cimmerian ‘The Black Viper’ HG 43
7. Kasrkin Veteran Sergeant Afriel Strain: Gamma VI HG 39

Recruits...

8. Lance Corporal ‘Punishment’ Jones 25 (Autogun) 22
9. Lance Corporal ‘JBS’ Haldane 25 (Autogun) 22
10. Private ‘Posh’ Barrington-Siddley 25 (Autogun) 22
11. Private ‘Big Bang’ Olufsen 36 (HWS – Grenade Launcher, Frag Grenade) 23

I snigger'd a little when I saw "Private ‘Big Bang’ Olufsen"...

Like the list. Think I may have to revise my own, seeing there are more choices in the "hired guns" appartment =)

On the HG - they might not be economic long term, but they are powerful from the off, comparatively cheap (if you ignore upkeep for a second) and for me increase the chance of winning the game, because of the added punch. Plus,they fit my squads fluff perfectly.

Laney Very Happy

I've never looked into the HG's, maybe I should. The commissar is hard to pass up. Smile

No CC weapons on the officers? And I noticed you included a grenade launcher. How do you feel it performs these days?

The no CC weapons is because these are definitely a shooting squad (plus I wanted bodies) - 13 is a good squad size to start. Hopefully the carapace will help to keep him alive long enough to go for a power weapon bolt pistol combination.

The HGs give my squad the initial punch the rest is just bodies waiting for more credits and skills.

The grenade launcher is a kind of economic cheat. It comes with (unless I missed a rule change) a frag grenade (usually 8 credits). So if I use it once (or not) and then sell it back at half the price it was a 'free' heavy weapon for a game and he can go and get a heavy stubber. It gives me a little more tactical flexibility - though I should probably just go for another autogun.

Cheers Laney Very Happy

Here's some more of the 'No Ones Own'...

'Flash' Burns (Meltagun proxy as a flamer) - last highlight still to go (no perfect, but ok for the tabletop)



Gamma VI (Afriel Strain - Kasrkin Veteran Sergeant) - pale skin, darker camo, carapace and a custom hellgun to set him apart...
WIP shots... Size comparison with Baldrick...


Painted Shots...



WIP standard bearer (otherwise basic lasgun fighter) - quite pleased with the banner



Some group shots (7 more IG to finish - not including those above + a thunderbolt pilot, primaris psyker, commissar/commissar lord) - couple more weeks to go...



Cheers Laney Very Happy

Thanks - I've finished him since I posted that pic. Orange and blue are my theme colours for this squad along with the autumnal camo (orangey again). I'm quite pleased by the overall look - but starting to get bored of painting them now (maybe it's time for a new squad - something wintry perhaps?)

Progress...
15 painted complete
5 WIP (pretty close - ETA Monday)
6 mixed models not even basecoated.

Laney Very Happy

Cody: You've not got any pictures of that scheme you mentioned have you?

Thanks as always - I do think 'Flash' has got a little too much orange on his right side (makes it a little unbalanced).

On the orange - it's a lazy way to get a decent result for HOT...

Black undercoat (white if you want brighter - I hardly ever use white)

Blood Red base coat
Blazing orange - leaving red in the recesses
Golden yellow towards the hotter centre areas on the tank
Skull white in the middle of these areas

I tend to do the orange to white stage quickly so that the previous step is just a little wet - it seems to help it blend together better. Slightly thinned coats are best (though not too much with the white - you don't want that to flow too far).

Cheers Laney Very Happy

Were you blessed at birth? You'r painting skills top the scales the sniper looks awsome and the fading of orange and yellow on the banner is sweet, I want more!

Would love to see you do an eldar squad not neccisarily to play but to paint as they are one of the strangest models to paint.

Thanks as always - keeps me motivated. Here are the latest finished additions and a few WIP...

Squadron Leader 'Spitfire' Bader (possible Assassin HG)




Lieutenant 'Blind' Bull



WIP of a HWS, standard bearer and two other basic recruits - one lasgun, one autogun...



Cheers Laney Very Happy

Some more WIP of the 41st. I've been building more (If I include the DKOK models I have hanging around and some Kasrkin I can get 40 IG + the other two squads I've already built) guardsmen. Next step is to work it out as an army (It would clearly be heavily infantry - though I'd love a Valkyrie or two!).

Anyway here they are (apologies again for the dodgy pics)...

Another painted guardsman (needs his Britannicus badge)




Another Afriel strain guardsman...



My Sergeant Harker (would work as a heavy stubber guardsman)...


My Thousandth pic on DeathSquads (according to servimg)



Chem Dog (using a renegade standard bearer (maybe a priest in the army?)



Very pink WIP shots of more guardsmen, but at least the miniatures are visible!




Cheers Laney Very Happy
More to come soon!

Oooooh, Laney, lots of nice updates. I have been eyeing up a heavy bolter from a chaos space marine and wondering if I can feasibly attach it without making a guardsman look ridiculous. Now I know I can do it without ruining the arms. Thanks!

The renegades are a nice tease. They are some of my very favorite models. Those a death korps of krieg are tops in my opinion. Any way you can change the lower arm on the standard bearer to make it look less like he once held a pole?

I like how most of your guard have backpacks. I like using bags to bulk up the models a little too. I think it adds a lot.

Nice work. Looking forward to seeing more.
