I have been faced with a blip this week. I managed to get a look at the Codex Astra Militarum (what used to be the Imperial Guard) and discovered that the command squad troopers couldn't have bolt pistols... so I had to replace them with las pistols:



I have also updated the blog with much more information (including progress pic of the second platoon) so it may be worth a look:

I like the idea of the beserkers. You're not going to put berets on top of the mohawks though are you? ;)
I had my wisdom teeth out a while back too. Broke through to my sinus though and had to be stitched.

I've decided that the standard units will have berets and normal hair so that the Berserkers stand out with their mohawks :)

My wisdom teeth removal was a very professional job and although I have a dull ache at the moment, it has been a remarkably uneventful thing.

yeah. One of my teeth had a hook in it so it needed half an hour of work to remove. the other popped out in 20 seconds. At least the follow up visits didn't cost extra.

One of the reasons I had them out was because it was free (military dentist :) ) and I knew that it would cost once I left the military.

I have been busy getting the platoon up to a standard level... so now they all have a layer of putty on their arms, ready for the sculpting to begin:



... and for a change of pace, I have started work on a Gun Servitor for my Engineseer (this is the first of 2):



I still have lots to do but it's a start :)

Cheers :) ... he's finished now:



I've started on the next one but I haven't got very far with it yet... theres info on Inso's World (amongst other things):

http://insosworld.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/a-nice-cuppa.html

I've also began thinking about how I could include Psykers in the army without using Squats and I was given a good idea by a guy on Facebook... use beastmen. Obviously, I don't have any beast men because I don't collect fantasy... but I have some Tau plastics and some green stuff so I may end up putting together a few Primaris Psykers in the form of converted beastmen. I think it is really appropriate because they are another part of the Rogue Trader days that have been washed aside. Then of course... there are weirdvane psykers... but I'm not so sure I want any of those yet.

So many things to think about :) .

So... today we have a complete Engineseer unit:



And I am currently working on a Beastman Primaris Psyker with a hint of Jedi about him. There is a small update on the blog too (a new magazine to read? Maybe):

The head obviously needs finishing... but then it's mostly detailing and tidying up the missed bits. He's going to get a holstered laspistol and his hooves will be in boots or will have spats on them. He'll also get the Tau powerpack on his back to power the refractor field. The head is going to be the classic goat style... if I can get it right :)

Cool. I thought you were just going to be using the mystic panda hasslefree mini. Interested in seeing how this turns out.

I would have... but I am not using metal miniatures in this army... maybe the occasional brass pit or aluminium rod but no actual metal miniatures :)

Plus... everything is converted (except for the gun tractors... and they'll likely get a few runes on them).

Very goaty looking. I like the musculature you sculpt.

Cheers :)

After a few comments I've received about things that could be better, I have updated the Beastman to have a bit of hair and a line down his top lip:



Hopefully, it looks a bit better :)

I cannot add anything, except to say I really, really like this one! Now you need to do a sci-fi Troll, and a sci-fi bridge...

No Troll (maybe Ogre/Minotaur though :) ) but there will be another two Beastmen... but I need a Squat fix first so here is a finished Heavy Weapon Squad:
