Chimera Conversion kit no.3: Set back turret.

Ok, so here's the latest conversion kit that I've been working on. It's something of a cut down and set back turret kit. The turret is supplied along with 3 swappable weapons.

I've put this together in the general style of the old late world war 1 / early world war 2 French tanks. I quite like the rounded turret look.

Heresy Era Space Marines Part 1.

Ok, so I couldn't just buy the Preators could I? I mean they need at least one squad of marines to accompany them.

Again, I stuck with the paint scheme I'm developing. It's turning out quite nice. There is so much detail on these models that it seems a shame to cover it with a dark colour scheme.
They were washed with devaln mud, then dry brushed white. I stuck with standard marine pattern bolters as I object to paying an extra £12 just for weapons. I think they look Ok though.

INQ 28 : Bearer of the Relic

Thought it had been a while since I uploaded anything Inq28 related. I was going through the collection last night, weeding out those models that can safely be ebayed when I came across this chap.

I'd totally forgotten about him. He's based on the Marco Columbo model that is just about to get a reboot (so my sources say). A simple headswap with an Empire Flagellant and the backpack rod from an old Njarll Stormcaller model that's long been lost and he's ready to go. 

Not sure about the paint job. Perhaps this is one that needs stripping and starting again.

Space Marine Praetors painted

Finally got round to painting the Space Marine Praetors. As models go these were a dream to paint although I suspect that was because I went with a relatively easy paint scheme. I'm not so into the official Legion colour schemes so I decided to go with my own. The white areas were washed Devlan Mud then dry brushed white.
