Anyway I have a lot of small bits and pieces that I'd like to try this out on (not for resale of course). I'm curious how well it will work on 3 dimensional things. I'll have to watch some videos first.

So having found myself with a Loganwing army and a land raider, I was curious why in an army dominated by Wolf Guard I hadn't yet made the special upgrade character. Looking at my bits box, then back to a bits order in progress, I ordered a terminator body for about the cost of a paint pot. I present my Arjac Rockfist.

I'm done painting her! I still haveto add some powder to the main gun but I think everything else is finished. It gets dark here at 4:30 pm so by the time I am home from work I can't take photos except by desk lamp. It's making the colours show up wonky; the first picture shows the colour in its truest form. I had a real time trying to decide where to put gold on this model without it looking overdone. I should also point out that the dirt on the tracks and skirting isn't as bright as it looks in the pictures. My camera wasn't being nice.

I'm nearing the end of painting this guy. I took a quick shot to show where it is currently at. I still have to sponge it, finish the tracks and then cover the bottom with dried mud. The top is a tad plain but I didn't really want to go overboard on bits and colour. A bit more work after an evening or two and I should have this finished by the end of the week. Maybe it will even hit the table as a painted land raider on Thursday.

I've moved the longfang over. He looked a bit unsteady where he was and now has someone to talk to without yelling over the vox. I doubt that cannon is loud anyway. I just love the image of soldiers clammoring over the top of the tank riding into battle, or providing covering fire as the terminators inside run out into the battle.

I kept working on this through the night and have made enough progress to field it this evening in a game. Here she is in 'land raider conformation'. I've had some feedback on the shoulder mounted longfang looking out of place and I think it's wearing on me. I really like the more standard one overhanging on the ramp though. Maybe if both were positioned there?

Here's a WIP of a 'Fellblade' that I am in the progress of making from a shadowsword kit. I'm planning to use the Banehammer rules with the modification that the sponsons are TL lascannons and models cannot shoot from it. It shouldn't change the rules too much as it was treated as open topped for disembarking originally.

I traded for this commisar for something very inexpensive or else I would have attempted to convert one. I wasn't a big fan of the all black outfit as it didn't seem very regimented to me. I painted him up in the fatigues of the line soldiers. I think all of the extra adornments speak for themselves as to his statures. The bolter aimed at your face when you're given an order also helps to alleviate any misunderstandings that may occur from his uniform not being all black.

I finially got my primaris psyker model in the mail to replace the feral looking psyker I'd been using previously. As my character in the game has grown and is about to become a Templar Calix I figured his tattered garbage clothing should be replaced with something more fitting. The model has a force staff and a holstered pistol therefore he will be WYSIWYG throughout the campaign!
