Day two of the great kitbash

So I got my hands on a box of HQ-minis, the Cadian ones. And put together two platoon command squads with the pieces. I also started to put some sand on some of the bases. The Zombie-conscripts all got based and the mortar team. I also opted to put the Vox-caster for the regimental Hq-squad on a bigger base than was needed. Since I gave him a bigger Vox-caster and a bit of scenery. Next up is finishing up with the bases and fixing one of the platoon standards. I have to grind down the Cadian emblems on it, it takes time and I'm also filling it out with some GS to make it i bit smoother.
All in all I'm quite happy with the progress so far. But it's going to be a pain to paint them all...
I'm still pondering what colour I'm going to use on their uniforms.

A hard days work...

Today has been all about assembly, with a capital "A". 43 Guards, including 2 Guard squads, 20 Zombie-Conscripts, a Mortar team and another Sgt. for my first platoon. It's been a productive day I have to say. The Zombie-conscripts, I have to say, were the hardest ones to work with. Their hands are not really suited to carry Lasguns. But in the end I think it will work. Some of them also got some Cadian helmets and some other stuff - to make them more military than shambling undead.
Next up is getting some more round bases - I ran out of round bases halfway thrue the Zombie squad. I also need to pick up a box of Cadian Hq. I will need the pieces to make two platoon command squads. And there are alot of nice pieces in that box - that I think will fit beatifully into the mix!
The Platoon Command Squad will consist of: Commander with a Boltpistol, one guardsman carrying a standard, one guardsman with a Meltagun, a Vox-caster and a Medic. The other Platoon Command squad will be identical.
Later on I will also have to build the HQ squad. A company Command Squad with: commander armed with either a Boltpistol or a Boltgun. A regemental standard, a Vox-Caster and two flamers. I'm also thinking about adding two bodyguards to the squad.

Summer Project 2009!

This years summer project come in different stages. The big one (!) is the building of a Traitor Imperial Guard army. Earlier this year I experimented with combining somw left-over IG-parts with some Imperial Militia parts - a strange and fun result. So as a birthday gift to myself I bought about 50 minis that I'm planning on turning into some Renagade troops.
The second part of this summers project is "picking up the slack" on some old projects: My Nurgle Chaos-Lord, patch up my Baneblade (from last summer), finish up a terminator squad, build and paint two Devestator Marines (H.Bolter and Lascannon), repaint a 5-man squad of Scouts.
Well, I do have my work cut out for me this summer!

Additions to the Raptors Chapter!

Assault Marines drop in for the kill! 4 Highly motivated killers and their sgt. Armed for close combat. The sgt. is armed with powerfist, plasmapistol and meltabombs. Nothing too fancy, just straight-forward brawlers.

Adeptus Mechanicus Techpriest

A while ago I wanted to make an Adeptus Mechanicus character. So I ended up building this Techpriest from a lot of GS and a lot of different spare parts that I had in my bitsbox. The whole concept was inspired by some of the artwork that can be found in various Dark Heresy books. The base is one of the things that I'm really pleased with. It's mostly GS, sculpted in different stages. From the beginning he was also supposed to have a drone floating in the air next to him, but when it came down to assembly the base looked to crowded. So I decided not to use it for this project.
