Bandwagon Ho! Part 7

Edge highlights on The Lion, trying to imply that he's standing with the sun behind him. Need a trip to Wigan or Preston to get some of the gloss nuln oil wash for the sword.

And a bit of pen work on the scroll.

The Lion, Bandwagon Ho! Part 6

Started putting some paint on Rowboat tonight.

To keep in line with the latest background, I've given The Lion a couple of pieces green.

Still have the sword to do.

There's a couple of bits left to do beyond the sword, nuln oil on a couple of the purity seals, and some data on the screen at the back.

Chosen Formation, 26/03/17

Finished the build on these today.

27 of 30.

4 lots of plasma guns, no matter what it actually looks like.


The bolter marines.

And some roughed assembly photos. I plan to paint these up after I finish off Girlyman.

I'd say this a rumor, but I trust the source, just redacted the name in case this is wrong to limit any come back on him.

The Chosen Formation

Snap shot of where I am up to on the Chosen Formation, need 3 more plasma guns or as I'm proxy ing lightening claws as plasma, I might just use the melta on the Prespero sprue as count as.
Keen eyed will note that the Fallen Champions aren't there and that in fact it's 4 short. To make up those numbers I'll be making 4 marines from the Prespero sprues to fill the numbers up.

Bandwagon Ho! Part 5

So part 5 and still no paint on it!

Over the past couple of nights I've watched Twin Sun's and I liked the pose of Master Kenobi before his duel with Maul.

So wanted to try and do something similar with my version of The Lion.

Anybody got a little blue pill?
I've added a bit of paper clip to the blade to give it some rigidity. Currently waiting for it to cure and thinking of taking a hand off a something else to mount it on as well.

Oldhammer Time

And Bandwagon Ho! Part 4.

At the big game we had down at Warhammer World, the guy that drove had a Space Wolf army and included the Forge World Leman Russ. As a joke while I was looking on ebay for something else I can across the orginal metal Leman Russ and though I'll get him that.

For some unknown reason it had been painted in Legion Of The Damned colours, an overnight soak and some tooth brush action had most of the paint off and some time with a needle file got the majority of it clean.

Bandwagon time, so I took some time to make it look less like an Ultra smurf.

Last night as well as the base I added some green stuff to a couple of plates to make it a couple look more sword like.

I also added the Wolf skull from the Dreadnought shield that comes in the Space Wolf Venerable kit as at this scale there not much difference between a Wolf and a Lion's skull.
