Deaf, here's a close up of the servo skull...







On the Strain, I think I'll go for orange trousers, rather than blue, which look too much like jeans.

The Gross Guys are BEAUTIES...in a gross sort of way! The brushwork & basing are TERRIFIC...a less uniform look might be better; maybe some dark stripes on a couple to avoid any repaints. That aside, GREAT WORK!  Thumbs Up 
Thanks for the photos of the Servo Skull; it looks even better than I imagined it to be. VERY COOL!  Thumbs Up

Those strain guys are indeed sweet!
And I'd also go for blue in the hologram. Smile

Nice work on the strain. How did you find them to clean up? I have a box guiltily waiting to be painted.

Back from holiday - blue for the hologram definitely then. The strain are not great to clean up, but worth it for such great sci-fi zombies. I have far too many models waiting for paint (and more coming from kickstarters), but I'll get there one day!

Cheers Laney

 I don't know that you need to, sure he probably couldn't fire the gun like that and probably wouldn't march like that but for a short time I'd expect them te be able to support it at an odd angle.

Also, I love the idea of it as an alternate pattern bolter.  What did you use to build it?

I might add a minor arm support at the elbow and shoulder.

I used a weapon from the empire outrider/pistolier set, combined with a magazine from a GK stormbolter and the silencer from a scout bolt pistol to make it. An alternate pattern bolter works for me!

Laney Very Happy

Time for some more pics, including my favourite mini conversion for a long time.








This guy is a Stormtrooper Sergeant Castus Kray (he's converted from a FW renegade body with a scout shotgun, commissar metal chainsword and empire knight head. He is a captain for an IG squad, but also potentially also an IG character for Dark Heresy.







Any thoughts welcome

Cheers Laney

Cheers Deaf!

I'd tried to get the sharpshooters eyes right three or four times and then decided one of the eyes had to go! I'm loving the stormtrooper sergeant (and I've managed to lose the glossy armour with a matt black wash).

I've also put together an Eshin Sorcerer for a Skaven Mordheim Warband...



Not practical - but why should that ever get in the way!

Ta Laney Very Happy

That is ONE COOL LOOKING Rat Guy Wizard! The Magical Effect (fire?) is OUTSTANDING...GREAT WORK!  Thumbs Up 
I think Fantasy & practical are mutually exclusive.  clown

I'm thinking warp lightning - maybe in a green for the Skaven Sorcerer.

I've finished Castus Kray, stormtrooper veteran sergeant of the Malfian 1st Regiment '1st on the field and last off it'.


Castus prefers to use a combat shotgun, rather than the typical stormtrooper hellgun. He wears carapace armour, with additional armour, including an adamantium plate on the front, which miraculously saved him from a genestealer attack as a young Malfian Whiteshield (during the ill-advised boarding of the Space Hulk Be Forever Fallen. This brought him to the attention of an Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos who recruited him to one of her 'training cadres'.


The skull he wears on his shoulder was the very first heretic killed in her service. The tank on his back is part breather unit and part stimulant injector (hence his extreme musculature). The chainsword was given to him by Commissar Valkenstraum during the Defiance Campaign and on his back he carries a meltabomb 'because you never know when something bit might need to be blown up in the name of the Emperor'.




Thoughts Welcome

OUTSTANDING paint job & conversion work...he looks the part of a fanatical Guards Officer (actually he reminds me of the "do you want to live forever? Lt. from Starship Trooper). VERY WELL DONE!  Thumbs Up 

About the only suggestion I could make is to blacken the interior of the shotgun barrels.  clown

Cheers Deaf! Starship Troopers is a brilliant film, the likeness was not intended, but I see what you mean.

I've played around with a couple of conversions that I thought I'd share...

Inquisitor Constantine (Ordo Xenos) of the Tyrantine Cabal (converted from the Dark Vengeance Librarian)...



Interrogator (no name so far)...




Cheers Laney

I love Inquisitor Constantine's spell effect...VERY DRAMATIC. The detailing & Green Stuff on the Imperial Grunt is OUTSTANDING; he is uniquely your own creation. VERY WELL DONE on both pieces!  Thumbs Up

Wow! Since I didn't receive an email update I have completely missed out the last page of this thread!
Some great additions you've got there! Looks like your vacation did you good! Smile

These look fantastic. Your sculpting and conversion work is ace.

I love how you have painted Castus Kray's face. It really comes to life. I really like the post of the renegade sergeant. A lot of menace and attitude in the pose. Really cool to see it as a conversion too.

Thanks Gents! I'm painting the interrogator at the minute, but now I'm back at work the pace may slow a little.

Cheers Laney

That psyker is just plain awesomeness!
The sniper is really cool too, though his left hand look's weird?

I'm a fan of the sniper too! Nice conversion! Smile
Are you preparing them in advance for the mystery box?
Still haven't heard any solid rumour of it but I'm still hoping for an Inquisitor game.

Yet MORE COOL STUFF! I love the extended barrel/silencer on the Sniper rifle. Both pieces are VERY WELL DONE!  Thumbs Up

Thanks Gents,

@Mudboy - You're right about the hand, it's from the Empire Militia box - definitely needs replacing with a less gigantic hand! I'm pleased with the psyker too Very Happy .

@ Deafnala - The sniper rifle is a tad OTT, but I couldn't resist!

@Gatlag - I've been playing around with Dark Heresy and also have my fingers crossed for the Inquisition mystery box.

Hopefully more soon.

Cheers Laney

The Inquisitorial psyker is beautiful! Love the work on it, and the sense of movement. Can't wait to see more!
