Marylundus

Greeting from the great state of Maryland. DS, CaptPiett and I are down for the weekend for some gaming with the the schmoes from Penn and Maryland.

Not a whole lot of product this week, but I'm hoping the quality makes up for the stuff. I worked on five missile launcher carrying Cadians. I used the SM/TL heavy weapon guardsmen (sans lascannon) and the E40k missile launcher team (sans team) to make these guys.

Next up is an Ork Battlewagon I converted. I used an AM Battlewagon, SM/TL Bonebreaker, some plastic card and Rhino parts to make this guy:

More Building

Got some more assembly done this week.

First off is a stand of Scouts. I used Bolt Pistols from plastic Scouts, heads from Sergeants and bodies from Shadow Knights.

These are the rest of the Scouts with Heavy Bolters for my other stands. The three in the front are all puttied up, the ones in the back still need work. I'm also going to add an ammo box using plastic card I think. The Heavy Bolters were spares from my Land Speeders.

An objective I'm working on. I used the ammo dump from E40k and a piece from an old 1/200 scale Space Shuttle model. I glued on a plastic card door, access box and vent.

I used Edenite Assault Infantry to make my Pariahs. I clipped the polearm blade on them and used plastic tubing and a Beastman sword for the glaive like end. The other ends were made using SM/TL Khorne Chaos Marine axes.

Rise From Your Grave!

I continued on with the Immortals this week. 32 bayonets being glued later here's what I have to show for it:

Obviously not a whole lot of progress this week. Gluing these fiddly little bits takes a lot of time. Here's what I have so far though:

Six Phalanxes with two Immortal upgrades each. This coming week I'll hopefully finish six Pariahs and twelve Tomb Spyders.

Here We Go...

So, appropriately enough, my first set of pictures doesn't involve paint at all. January is going to be a modeling and assembly month for me. I hope to finish the last few ground units for my Marines as well as my Necron Phalanx upgrades.

First off are my Land Raiders. I never liked that access doors were in front of the Twin Lascannons (in fact TSOALR poked fun of this on a couple of occasions). So, while I was cleaning up the model, I moved the guns forward and cut some plasticard doors.

These are my Sniper Scouts. I got the idea of using plasticard rod for silencers from Warmaster Nice of TacComms. I'm going to be using the rest of the Shadow Knights I have for my regular scouts. They're going to take some more conversion work though.

For those of you who haven't realized it, Edenite Heavy Infantry make great Necron Immortal proxies! :P I used the axe/sword from SM/TL Beastmen for bayonets. Eight more stands of these to go.

Finally, my Necron Lord proxy using an Edenite Assault Sergeant. Again I used the Beastmen axe/sword to create the Staff of Light. All six of these stands are done, along with all the regular stands. So that's six activations of Necrons done.
