Big Guns

Well it looks like I've run out Death Jesters for my next 2 Troupes.
I had a root in my Eldar box and found a couple of splinter cannons that I messed around with earlier today, a bit of cutting and filing got them into a position that I liked the look of and then green stuff to get them to fit the blasters that were already on the 2 de warriors that I had got with the Incubi. Painting will take place over the week.

The Great Pretender

Spent a couple of weeks doing this, and got it into the Wigan store today.
The personal ride of The Great Pretender, troupe master within The Masque of the Breaking Dawn. Now need to build up a troupe for him, after I've finished the Mime Incubi.

I've Been Blessed.

Yep Grandfather Nurgle has been with his blessings. It's that bad I'm even taking a couple of days off work to get over it.
Normal crappy service will resume next week hopefully.

Quick Update On The Land Raider

Much better photos will be up on Thursday, this is just a stop gap till then.
The bunting and the turret on the rear of the tank got done tonight.

Cat 1 And Cat 2

Like both of these heads. These aren't glued yet as not sure which head to go with. I've included the 2 images that inspired me most on these minis.
Just bunting and a rear facing Shuriken cannon and it's done.
Arranged some table time at Wigan on Thursday for some better than WIP photos.

Pole Cats

After a couple of nights focused on the Incubi Mimes I got back to the Raider tonight.
Started the 2 pole cats tonight, I really wasn't happy with the second one so I scrapped it and went with the DE Wytche, I just need to paint the arm that's holding the pole.
The other cat is inspired by Roger Taylor in the I Want To Break Free video. I haven't got a head with me that I like so headless until I can get home and have a root.

Incubi Mimes

Concentrated on the Incubi/ Mime tonight, gave the robe a Khorne red base coat, a nuln oil wash and then a thin coat of Evil Sunz Scarlet and the high lighted with wild rider red.
The Incubi warriors are a hold over from 6th when I was running this army out of the DE Codex, to work them into the new one I'm planning running these as mime 's (normal troupe), in the older edition the Mimes played the dæmon roles and the one I already have are named, the Troupe was called The First of The Fallen.
I  will be making the pole cats and painting them tomorrow, one for sure will be inspired by Roger Taylor in the I Want To Break Free video, the other will be something like the last 2 photos.

The Pole Cats

I had rather a heavy night at work so not had much time to muck about. Large magnets on top of the track housing and 2 5mmx1mm on each foot , after a few miss starts where I repeatedly got one magnet the wrong way up. I've had the large magnets for ages and I guess a bit of the hoarder had set in with a reluctance to use then on this project.
Also base coated the Incubi warrior before giving the tiny skulls and weapons a sepia wash and the armour a nuln oil wash.
I also found out that this style of Incubi was first released with Vect personal Raider, that paint job isn't mine.

Monthly Vow, The 12th of April, To The 12th of May

For next month I've worked out how to fix the poles to the Land Raider so will get that sorted. I'm also working on a couple of old metal Incubi to at least get my Incubi Mimes up to a squad size of 5, as well as building and painting the Voidweaver. I'm not planning any more buying than this as I have to pay to get my boiler fixed.
Review Time
I started off with the Mk4 squad of Star Leopards,  by doing a couple proof of concept minis.
I finished the squad and a captain for the Star Leopards chapter and edited the wiki page with the colours I'd used. . . I also got the whole force out for some photos, the plasma gunners and Inceptors are both in my main Lion's Blades army and The Emperor’s Loyal Hounds Of War.
I then repainted the robed guy as a Mentors Chapter Librarian.
Next up was the Death Jesters that I was fixing the prism cannon focusing array onto the end of the las cannon, first try looked wrong, so cut some more off to get a better looking fit.
Next up was the Raider crew of the Doof Twins, The Professor, The Uninvited Guest, and The Great Pretender. And I then started painting the Raider itself, it was blue Ultramarines one originally and I chose to keep one part blue for the fun of it, and to trigger all those Marine players and then also painted the exhaust cover in Ultramarines colours just to break up the large blocks of colours it was coming out in.
I'd bought the mask stickers I'd been watching for months now and used that on various bits of the tank. I chose to paint the diamonds blue and details in purple before moving onto the bungie arms for the Doof Twins. I finally bought the bobbles today and have used them for the cords and am waiting for the green stuff to cure now.  I'll get those painted up tomorrow. I've really enjoyed this build and the  educational potential it's given the various groups in Facebook when I get slagged off for doing something oldhammer.
