Wow, all of these models are looking absolutely incredible, any chance of a big group shot sometime?

How in the Warp I missed all this good stuff? Excellent work man! You work with GS is amazing... as usual!

Good luck exorcising Slaanesh out of your camera!

Thanks Guys (as always!)

Narcissus: I'll see what I can do about the knife hand on the renegade (he's IG now!). I agree that backpack across the army is the way to go - it adds something to the models.

Here's the group shots requested! (I'm going to try a full group shot of all my painted guard squads at some point)...






A better pic of the latest squad member...


Cheers Laney Very Happy

The orange and blue is a brave color scheme to attempt, and yours looks great! Lots of character in this squad but they all look uniformly from the same unit. Great job.

Right, I've been busy trying to put all my IG together into a recognisable 40k army (3 squads, plus a mix of single painted, part painted minis and a load of unpainted too). A couple more squads and some vehicles (plus loads of painting) and I'll be there!

Here's some shots to show where I am at the minute...
The painted/WIP ones...



Latest batch of WIP minis...


Some DKOK shotgun conversions (shotguns from Heresy Miniatures)...


Another stormtrooper conversion - still not sure about the sword...


The whole lot!


I'm keeping the three squad colours, but will try to make the whole thing look more cohesive (one or two may receive repaints)

Cheers Laney

Laney... you are the living example that playing Death Squads can lead to making a 40k Army! HA! This is awesome. When I go to the UK to visit you (hell... I can dream!) you better have an X-Ray machine handy... I may swallow some of your models!* BTW... how many 40k points is that? Around 500 points of IG (hehehehe...)?

Thank you for sharing your army.

As these guys will be mostly vets, penal legion (might need some new models for that!) and stormtroopers, all I need is a few transports to make 1500 points. I have plans to buy some chimeras, valkyrie and a battleforce with a few forgeworld goodies to upgrade (this will probably be my christmas present!).

I've got a thunderbolt (needs a little polystyrene glue), warhound (needs a leg fixing) and shadowsword in the shed as well for apocalypse games.

Current List would look something like this...
HQ
Company Command Squad (All advisors available - ordnance, bodyguards or Nork Deddog, astropath, fleet)
Primaris Psyker
Lord Commissar
Enginseer (2) + Servitors (6)

Troops
Veteran Squad 1 (Harker) Melta/Shotgun
Veteran Squad 2 (Bastonne) Plasma
Veteran Squad 3 Snipers
Veteran Squad 4 Snipers
Veteran Squad 5 Flamers

Platoon Command Squad (currently with no platoon!)

Elites
Commissars (4)
Sly Marbo
Psyker Battle Squad
Stormtrooper Squad
Ogryn Squad (3)

+ 15 spare models of various descriptions that don't fit yet - some will be repainted, others will not make the cut (to precious to repaint and not useful enough to make the final army!)

Cheers Laney Very Happy

You have a Sly Marbo model? Didn't spot it on your pics.
Because if you haven't, I 've got one for you....

Even better - I've got 'The Groom' as a counts as (or Ralph 'Brit' Destokesy as he's called)...



I'd quite like to build another one though - but I've temporarily run out of IG parts!

Gatlag - I might take you up on the Ironhand at some point. Very Happy

I know this is painting and modelling - but the fluff is for these guys so...

LOCATION: Planet: Leodensia, Grid Ref 681591/2452
Command room of the Sparta Pattern ferrocrete bunker (Codename: Rabbithole)

PRESENT:
Colonel Archibald Biggins, Commander of the 41st Allansian regiment - Britannicus cluster reserves 'The Governors Own'
Lieutenant 'Blind' Bull
Lieutenant 'Curious' George
Sergeant 'Scavvy' Baldrick
Sergeant 'Zulu' Rorke

Part One
The steady thud of artillery shells could be heard loud and clear through the metres of thick ferrocrete above them.
'Hells bells!' cried Colonel Biggins, 'they are here already!'
The Colonel sat behind an ornate Okewood desk, with four dirty looking guardsmen slouched in front of him, two with lieutenant pips and the others with sergeant flashes.
'No Sir,' replied Lieutenant George, in his typical deadpan voice. 'That's an Earthshaker. No Ork ordnance sounds like that, too consistent. From the Kharian 88th, if I'm not mistaken. They are are trying to halt the Ork advance.'
'And you've led them straight to us!' snapped Biggins accusingly. Sweat dripped off his brow as his eyes flicked up to the dust drifting down from the ferrocrete of the ceiling. Colonel Biggins was anything but a warrior, weak chinned, with a potbelly which hung above comically thin legs. He was only a Colonel from paying for his rank, rather than through the value of his actions on the battlefield.
George looked at him with cold, shark eyes, unimpressed by the craven in front of him.
Biggins tried to return the stare and failed turning to shuffle his paperwork.
'You still have your weapons! Why did you not relinquish them at the bunker entrance as per my standing order? Get them off!'
George simply hefted his Plasma gun but did not reply.
Lieutenant Bull cut in on his behalf, 'because, Sir, the Imperial Guardsman Primer strictly prohibits any guardsman regardless of rank from losing his firearm within a warzone or suffer summary execution by the Commissariat.'
The Colonel blustered at that, before replying 'Well, at least that's one order you have followed! You were ordered to fall back to this position in good order and with all haste. This bunker is vital to the protection of this section of the line...'
'Vital to the protection of your skin,' murmured Sergeant Baldrick.
'What was that!' screeched the Colonel, his face turning purple, 'Insolent dog! How dare you! I'll have you shot!'
'Sir,' said Lieutenant Bull calmly, 'we followed your order to the letter. Soldiers of your regiment had been cut off due to the retreat order you gave, having been under the impression we were advancing. Our platoons created an opportunity for those soldiers to rejoin the regiment and carry out an orderly fighting retreat.'
'And, in doing so you have brought the Orks main fighting force into our lap! Your actions have turned my tactical retreat into a full blown rout!' shouted the Colonel.
'You mean that you don't intend to defend this position, sir?' asked Lieutenant George innocently.

Transcribers note:
Rabbithole was arguably the strongest defensible point of the Eastern Leodensian Front (some 500km in length). Less a bunker, more a fortress network, easily defended by a single regiment.


'No, I do not intend to hold here! Due to your actions this region is lost to us. The Orks of the Mottled Wun Waaagh! will be upon us before the days end. You four will be stripped of all rank and when the Commisariat hear my report you will likely face a firing squad.' said Biggins, 'Guards!'

End of Part One

Part Two coming soon...

I thought you might like an update on the expanding 41st and 95th/10th and 13th. I've purchased a cadian battleforce (this should be most of the extra infantry covered - as I am going for lots of veterans and penal legion troops), I might raid my empire bits box for militia and horses to make my penal legion and rough riders (that's for later though). The really cool stuff is the environmental suits from forgeworld (the meltas)


Plus a bunch of stuff from maxmini to make some cool veteran squads (this is Christmas early this year - Though I would love a valdor tank hunter)

10 of these for my vets - not arrived yet - should combine well with the forgeworld and cadian pieces

You can never have enough sniper rifles!

For my veterans - half the top left and half the bottom shotgun


With this lot I hope to make three squads (plus special weapons etc.) and fill in the gaps in other squads. I'll have two more death squads along the way as well!

Cheers Laney (more of my own stuff coming soon!) Very Happy

Good Lord, Laney. Are you a millionaire or something? I can't bring myself to buy stuff from either FW or maxmini... it's so darn expensive. 1 pound per torso? Are you kidding me?

That said... good for you man. It's awesome stuff. Smile

I had to think long and hard before making my purchases (so expensive!) and try to maximise what I could get out of it. After this no more infantry! Tanks, valkyries and transports all the way after that!

Sorry I missed the story.... IT WAS AWESOME!!!

You are a great story teller! It is SO COOL! Cool I want to shoot that Colonel Archibald Biggins myself! hehehe! You know you need to make TWO models for him.

1) Normal (playable) model. Don't forget his "potbelly which hung above comically thin legs". Superb description!
2) Diorama: Something like...

But the coward Biggins being the one legless (make sure we can still see his "comically thin legs") and your hero still trying to save him... Sad sniff!

I would even take this...

Cool Diorama Mord, the other one is just gross!

Part Two of the story is coming soon!

@Arachas: I've not had a playable 40k army for about 3 years now (as in fully painted - otherwise it doesn't count). I can proxy an inquisition force, a blood angels or a chaos marine force (up to 1500 points) - but these are all part painted. I just love the idea of having fully painted armies even if I rarely play 40k - plus Valkyries are very cool (I'd happily have a squadron).

Laney Very Happy

That second injured diorama reminds me of when Darth Vader is in the lava on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith.

Nice models Laney. I am interested to see how the maxmini bits and the hostile environment bits look.

No maxmini bits yet - a tad annoyed as I've used up most of the cadian battleforce and have no more models left for the maxmini bits! (another cadian squad and catachan command squad should do it though). The forgeworld bits on the other hand arrived within days of the order being made. Anyway, I've been busy with what I had...
My (Mordian) squad - just a heavy weapons team to add...

A Veteran with bionic arm...

An overseer for a future penal legion squad (was a stormtrooper with custom hellgun) - needs repainting and a backpack modelled...

More additions to my sniper team (counts as ratling snipers - will become another stormtrooper squad when I finally get the real thing)

My new Sly Marbo with twin Mausers (I'll get better pics when the demonic camera lets me)


Veteran with Demolition Bomb

Veteran with Lasgun upgrade (to signify BS4)

Another Veteran...

Vox operator Veteran (using scout legs)

Another veteran with Lasgun upgrade (BS4)



Veteran 'Engineers' waiting for maxmini shotguns - environmental suits and meltaguns making up most of the rest.

More on its way and then down to (lots of) painting.

Cheers Laney Very Happy

Any more pictures of how you did the backpacks? I am running low and could do with sculpting/bitz mixing to make some more.
