Imperial Assault - Painted Jyn


My friends and I started playing Imperial Assault a few months ago and when choosing characters, I ended up with Jyn Odan.  I shouldn't say 'ended up with' because that implies I don't like the character, but I chose last so this is what I have!  Anyone who's played the game knows the pieces come unpainted and I wanted to get into the game a bit more and took her home to paint.  The characters in the base game are really just copies of heroes from the Star Wars movies with different names.  Jyn here is really just a copy of Han Solo and even has an ability that could have been called 'shoots first' but instead is quick draw.  There's a generic wookie and a jedi too.  Anyway since we started calling her 'fake Han' I decided instead of painting the weird orange from the player card I would copy Han solo's costume.  Here's the result of a very quick paint job (it's my friend's game haha).

[Emerald Fists] Sicaran WIP

I hear these are pretty good these days.  I added some custom sponsons from Blood and Skulls Industries to match my other predators.  This tank has the tracks built into the hull which is awesome for assembly unlike the Fellblade.  Lots of weathering!

[Emerald Fists] Lucius Pattern Drop Pods - Painted


Here's my fleet of drop pods!  I'm impressed by how heavy the lucius pods are.  Just a touch of green and some iconography.  I did the inverse of what I've historically done for the hazard chevrons.  Before I would sponge black over the yellow but this time I went sponged yellow over the black.  I think it looks better (subtle and I doubt anyone would notice) but for some reason it looks chipped instead of dirty like the original method did.

[Fluff] Bound into a Coffee Table Book!

All done!

"Acting on intel from the Segmentum's Inquisition, the Raven Guard 3rd company deploys a scouting party to the system of Bruj to investigate reports of a once loyal chapter, the Emerald Fists, having captured the system and enslaved the populace to their own end.  What they find there spits on the friendship the 3rd Captain once thought he held with the Fists and puts both chapters into battlefield roles they were not designed for."

[Fluff] Siege of Bruj - Epilogue

Based on an adaptation of the Badab War Campaign, the result of 5 games of Warhammer 40k are being used to write a recount of 'The Siege of Bruj', a compendium for the background of the traitorous elements of the Emerald Fists; my homebrew chapter.  The results are being formatted with photographs of my models and the battles.  Enjoy.

Click here for previous and future chapters, current links to the draft formatted (with pictures) version and more background.

Lucius Drop Pods - painting in progress

I've done well so far in ensure everyone has a transport (mostly) and this continues that.  Two lucius pods and a regular pod.  I added magnets to the lucius pods on the doors to hold them closed (they're super heavy and prone to fall open).  I also reinforced the hinges with metal tubing.  This used A LOT of wash to finish ha ha.

[Emerald Fists] Legion Praetor Librarian Conversion 2

I had initially wanted to make this shield but forgot to paint it.  The original pictures are here (with the casting hand) and fluff.   So here are more pictures of him with his new 3++.  I think the casting hand looks better but this just makes it WYSIWYG.

Khorne - My Army So Far

I need to buy a light for my cabinets but here's a poor quality image of my army so far.  I based the blood crushers too.  I really like the contrast with the bases.  More skulls!  Everything else will be a lot more red so this doesn't just look like a silly group of Abadon's buddies.

Khorne Blood Crushers - WIP

I painted up some bloodcrushers but still need riders. I'm going to do those later!  These are such aggressive looking dudes.

Dog Ate My Model - Repaired Nurgle Blight Drone

Fixed
Back in February 2013 I posted this  where my dog utterly destroyed a blight drone I was working on.  I was understandably upset!  All of those painting hours gone!  Anyway it took well over 2 years for me to go back and try to fix this thing, but luckily it was nurgle.  There was nothing major enough that some extra rust and blood and puss couldn't fix.  I did lose some cables but that seems minor now.
