Bandwagon Ho! Part 8

So I opened up a pot of nuln oil gloss tonight and I didn't spill any!

I gave the sword 3 coats to build up a, hopefully obsidian type

Not too bad.

Used the flash to see if I'd missed anything.

Side by side for comparison.

And I also gave one of the chosen helmets a wash. I prefer a mat finish. . .

First Squad Of Fallen

Started painting these tonight, and ran out of black so rather need to go up to Preston to pick some more up and maybe see if I can find out where the new shop will be.

Plasma galore!

And the normal guys.

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.

Bandwagon Ho! Part 3

About all I'm able to do tonight is the base, as I left the assembly instructions at home.

There's a shed load of detail on that base.

And another can of primer finished on these 20 marines, plan A is the arms go on the Fallen Angel Formation with the various arms I've already got, and the bodies will be dished out to The Lion's Blades to replace some standard plastic marines, their arms will go on the mk3s and the 20 replaced marines will be moved to the Knights of Blood.

Worked On Some Dreads

But no buying of Dreads, so holding up my vow.

I started on these by adding magnets to the weapon mounts.

Before fitting weapons, 2 of these are getting 2 Kheres assault cannons, the other is getting options of either 2 twin linked las cannons or

2 multi meltas.

Cypher New And Old

I do like the new Cypher, I really do, even though it lacks the same dynamic pose of the old one.
There are a couple of little niggles though, I'd have loved the sword to be one piece and separate, and the plasma pistol looks more like a hand flamer, but I've been shown some 30k big plasma guns for Mechanicus and they have the same pilot light type arrangement going on, but the older version looks more elegant and like it's designed to be quick drawn from a holster.
