I wanted him to be jovial... smiling and chatting away while he drinks his brew (from an old shell casing). His face still needs a lot of work but he's going to get a shorter beard than most of my Squats because he has a chewing-tobacco habit and it would mess up a long beard :)

The Frogulon in the background is highly inspired by the Hordes Trollbloods... but he isn't supposed to be a copy, he has a big fin/frill on his head for starters. I just like the look of the Trollbloods but don't want to buy any fantasy miniatures.

An update on Harker. His flat head will be getting a nice hat... :) :

It would appear that I had so much fun building the Valkyrie proxy that I felt the need to keep building... so I have started to build some amphibious transport vehicles :) :



I have another Hanomag on the way so that I have enough for a platoon (1 each for the command, 2 infantry squads and a heavy weapon squad). If these turn out OK, I may have finally beaten the curse :o ...

That is a nice looking kit.

I was quite surprised at how crisp it was... a very sharp kit. It is slightly smaller than I thought it would be but that is a good thing... it will fit my plans perfectly. I have also done some investigating and a Valkyrie can have a las-cannon... so I just need to leave one off the kit rather than having to scratch-build a multi laser... result! :)

I'll be tidying this up today and may well start assembly as well... it's almost a given because I am really quite excited about this kit :)

Preliminary symbol removal, on the newly arrived Corvus Blackstar, is complete :) ... I just need to sand a few things down and it will be ready to be assembled :) ...



The Corvus Valkyrie has started :) .

:) ... I think that the new miniature of Marbo has a pistol straight out of the film :)

My Marbo will be joined by Sgt Harker who, funnily enough, is sitting on my work table at the moment. He's getting a shoulder carried heavy bolter and... a tea-mug :)

I've also ordered some aerial transportation for them so they can 'get to da chopper Valkyrie' ;)

Cheers :) . That's what I thought too :) .

I bought a bunch of the Ghar suits a while back and was going to use them as random aliens... but then the Kharadron came out and I thought... Demiurg :) . Sorted.

The first three drones are now re-based and have joined their Demiurg owners:



I think that each of the drone squads will have six of these large drones in them, with a few aerial drones for spotting and shielding. I haven't decided on which aerial drones I will go for yet... so I will tick along with the big drones and Demiurg for now :) .

I did a bit of rooting about in storage boxes and have located the drones that I have assembled. 3 just need the bases doing and the other 3 need a lot more work. I have also started the three Demiurg troops for the next unit :) :



I thought I may as well get on with the next 3 Demiurg, seeing as I am sculpting heads for the commander and his driver already... may as well do them all :)

I have now finished the third Demiurg (the leader):



I have also started work on the army commander:

I'm glad you like them... there will be more :) .

I've started painting the leader so he should be ready fairly soon :)

In other news... in a moment of drug induced (prescribed painkillers) euphoria, I went online and did some shopping and for some reason, I bought a radio controlled truck. It was cheap (luckily) but it is large and has six wheels.

I have no idea why I decided to buy the thing but, in hind-sight, it probably wasn't such a bad idea. I can turn it into a Demiurg super-heavy transport :) .

The truck is the one on the left and the image on the right is of the shape I quite like... but obviously, the vehicle will be MUCH larger :) . I reckon I can turn it into something quite interesting... with the added bonus that it will be able to move around under its own steam :

To cut a long story short... I quite liked the idea of rock-dwarfs in space so I decided to put some together. I used some bits from various companies and based the troops around GW Kharadron Overlords with converted heads.

These three are the first of the troopers:



They represent (bottom row from left to right) a drone controller, leader and mech. After a little bit of negative feedback, the leader got a trim:



The idea is that each unit has the three troopers above in it and is accompanied by a range of drones; both ground and air based. The first drones are these:



I need to re-base them to match the Demiurg but they are painted and in storage somewhere so I will have to dig them out, at some point, to do it. I also need to tidy up the base of the drone controller that is posted below (the first one of the Demiurg that I have painted):



The next one to be painted will be the mech.

Remember this?:





Well, all of the leg casts have now been sold and I won't be casting any more. That said, I have had an offer for the green so it is likely that it will be sold and may be cast up by someone else in the future. Sadly, there wasn't the demand for me to keep casting them :( .

The troops are now armed so next up will be a layer of putty on the wire before I start sculpting the arms properly :) :

I've started the next veteran squad. These will all have berets. The main weapons will be shotguns and meltaguns. There will be a comms trooper and the sgt will have upgraded close combat weapons (probably a bolt pistol and power weapon):

Now that I have some snipers, a Jokaero and some priests, it's high time I got my arse in gear and started painting some of the basic troops... so that is what I have done :) . Here is the first (rough base-coat) on the first squad of No.2 platoon:

It's a slight homage to a very old GW fantasy slayer... but I thought a pistol-club suited better than a pistol as a ranged weapon... and it helped to show just how mad he was :D

The hammer is from a Mantic Forgeguard (in heavy powered armour) so it is definitely a chunk :) ... but I reckon a berserker can channel his inner rage to heft it in battle OK :)

The next one:
