:) ... 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' ;)

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 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 :)

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 ...

He's a happy looking chap.
That sculpt in the background looks like a Hordes Troll... in space.

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.

+++EDIT+++

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

Chewing tobacco and wearing a hat, makes you a Sexual Tyrannosaur! Sgt Harker knows...

Really looks the part. Are you sure the shell casing isn't to spit his tobacco into?

In a rather interesting turn of events... do you remember these?:



Well, I have sold the greens to CP Models and they will be available in the near future :) :

Cheers :) . They arrived with him on Saturday and he is pleased with them so that's a good thing :)

In other news, I have been working on a sculpt for a competition over on Facebook. It's a Squat Berserker (still WIP):



Nearly there, just the hammer and a few other little bits to go.

Very nice. So will you be getting the new squat from GW?
On a sculpting note, I've just been experimenting with Beesputty that Andy sells. I think I'm sold on this product over others.

I will get the new Necromunda Squat when he's released... not because I want to but because I have to :)

I do not like Beesputty. I have never tried it but I don't like the way it looks grainy and that it has a tendency to crack when you bake it.

I have decided that I am happy with Green Stuff, Brown Stuff and the odd bit of milliput here and there... and all of those are air drying :)

If Beesputty works for you, keep practicing :)

The thing I like about it is I always take too mix up too much putty of other stuff and also I can just get straight into sculpting with this. I find the mixing puts me off despite it not taking that much time. I shifted from GS to GS and milliput which was nice as well. I haven't had the cracking issues yet but slowly cooling I hear is the way to go.


Is the berserker having anything else in the other hand?

The berserker is just having the hammer and a holstered pistol. That way, it can become a fantasy miniature simply by converting the holster into another pouch :)

Something for the army again; this time, it's a pair of Dreadnoughts to go with the Space Marine component of the organisation. Obviously, I can't just get a dreadnought or two. That would be too easy... so I bought a box of Mechanicus robots and here we are. Still WIP but I am getting there :) :
