lol. Well I made that Iron Golem for the Build Something on LAF. Which may or may not become commercially available due to one of the companies I have sold some sculpts to seeing it on my Flickr account. I never actually planned on that one getting out there (Sorry derailing)

I hope it goes well for you and you get your work out there in 'shop land' :) ... It's always cool when that happens.

In today's little update, a top hatch, handle, front vent and some eyebrows have been added. Just for the record, the arms and top weapons are not glued in place yet... and the bodies are not attached to the base (so the pose hasn't been fixed yet) :) :



I will be fettling the bodies and getting them finished before moving on to the arms :) .

In other news... the Squat Berserker has been sold to Short Wars now :) . He will be available from here in good time:

http://www.shortwars.co.uk/

The miniature in question didn't fare particularly well in the competition but the ones above it were worthy of being there. Here's my now posted Berserker:



As for the Halfling snipers... they can now be found for sale over at CP models :) :

https://cpmodels.co.uk/product/ru13-halfling-snipers-full-gillie-suits/

Most of the money from the sculpts I have sold has gone to charitable causes so everyone is a winner :)

These are now as finished as they will ever be. Thorsen on the left, Ranulf on the right :) :



They will be glued down and then I will prime them as soon as the weather lifts :)

I have now primed the dreads:



Now that I have got as far as I can with them, I thought I'd see what I could find in the loft and managed to uncover my Bullgryn squad. Only one of them had been converted... and he didn't have any weapons but luckily, I had thought about that earlier and bagged a lot of Bullgryn bits from EBay. With the bits already available, it was merely a case of a bit of sawing, drilling, pinning and gluing and I soon ended up with this:



He's a converted, Mantic, Dreadball Ork with GW weapons. He still needs some putty work to fill gaps and sort out a few niggles... but he's pretty much there :) . I have another four sat in a box beside me so I have enough for a squad of five. Tidy :) .

The competition sculpt (Squat Berserker) has been cast up and I was sent a couple of copies so I painted one up:



A bit of back-story :) :

That's quick casting! Nice job too. Like the hammer colour.

It's a Meng toon tank... all I have changed are the weapons :)

It makes conversion MUCH simpler than cutting up 1/35th Tamiya tanks :)

Just need some decals to arrive now :) :



I've ordered some decals from here:

http://domsdecals.com/

and another two tanks from EBay. They will be converted to be the same as this one.

... and so it begins again :) . Two more Punishers have arrived:



I have the pens, I have the lascannons and I have the sprue for the punisher cannon.

Once they are converted, that will be the first section of the tank company complete. Then another two lots of three and a command tank :) .

Just a quick post to show off the second painted tank:



The third tank has been washed and will start this week. It'll be getting a visible tank commander to denote it as a lead tank but he won't be a tank commander, rules wise... he'll just be a normal tank (he'll just have a normal helmet rather than a significantly leader-like hat/helmet).

See? I can paint things occasionally :)

I've got a little bit further on the armour now. The platoon leader has been sculpted so I can now get on with spraying the turret and finishing the painting :) :



Still no decals though :(

Time flies when you are having fun :) .

I won't be touching the mech until I have finished my tank company and with that in mind, I have started work on the next three. First, I converted a bunch of pens and hair ties into some plasma Cannons:







Then I washed all the sprues and assembled what I could before I needed to spray anything:



Finally, there was a break in the weather so I managed to get a single tank and all of its components, sprayed up before the can ran out of paint:



From now on, I will be back to painting everything one at a time :)

Cheers :)

Now the third tank is finished (apart from the commander and decals) and the first of the plasma-tanks is base-coated, ready for a wash:



Hopefully, the first plasma-tank will be ready for decals by the end of the week... but who knows?

Just decals to go on the first platoon... but I reckon I'll leave the decals until all the tanks are painted :) :

Here's a high quality (Windows Paint) mock-up of the markings for my tank company:



I have all the decals I need for all ten tanks. The yellow shape changes for each platoon/command so there will be 3 triangles, 3 squares and 3 circles with a diamond as the company commander.

I have all the decals except the names... but I have LOTS of decals which can be altered for that... or I can just paint the names (so they are properly individual).
