@ beefcake - Love those plasma cannons.

(I can't quote for some reason)

I am always happiest when I can find a simple solution to a problem. These were a simple solution but it took me a while to locate what I was looking for... and the hair ties were a complete surprise... so it was win-win :)

The first of the plasma-tigers is done (except for decals):

With the fifth tank finished (apart from decals), I have assembled and basecoated the sixth tank... but it needed a commander so Anja had to be sculpted. Now she is nagging me about why her tank isn't finished yet...



Not my best sculpt but I am hoping that the painting process will help her to become less masculine :)

I needed a break from painting tanks... and to be honest, it's a bit humid for painting so I decided to build a few Halfling Snipers:



This is three squads of ten, all washed, cleaned up, filled and based, ready for priming :) .

The good thing is that this means I have ticked off three boxes on my organisation chart... and three platoons now have their ten-strong sniper units :) .

... and then there were six :) :



With the completion of this little platoon, I now have six Leman-Russ proxy tanks finished (apart from decals). Now I have to start all over again with the next three and they will be getting Battle-Cannons :) .

Cheers :) . It looks a bit more feminine than before... but note a huge amount. That said, I think she looks like an older, gnarly tank commander so I'm happy :)

I have now started work on the next tank... the first of the Battle-Cannons...

... only four to go... only four to go... only four to go...

I am starting to see green all the time now :o :D!

... at least Berlin Camo would break up the green a bit :) .

That said... last time I thought about bold shapes on a tank, this happened :o :D :

In fairness... I have finished a couple of armies...

... but I lost the will to live with the Mondrians so it ended with a bump :) .

Luckily, I always have lots of things to keep me awake at night... things like the remaining four tanks for the tank company :) :



The one of the left is waiting for an Agrax wash, the one next to it is waiting for priming/base-coating, the one next to that is waiting for a commander to be sculpted before Priming/base-coating and the opne on the right is the overall company command tank and is waiting for a commander and hull weapon to be sorted out before priming/base-coating.

The weather has been humid so I have avoided most of the painting/sculpting and have just been assembling and gap-filling. I think that I will need to replenish a few paints (namely the green spray) to finish them all... but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Everything has slowed down a bit... mostly due to the lovely sunny weather. That said, I am still doing bits and bobs. Currently, I have two tanks all dirtied up, ready for stippling:



With the tank commander for the third tank finished:



His tank is mostly sprayed green, apart from the turret and a few bits of equipment (that will get sorted today :) ).

This particular tank commander is looking at his digital map while wondering how the hell he ended up so far from where he should be :) .

Cheers :) .

He's one of my 'finished, not perfect sculpts' that have a number of things that I know I could have done better (around the eyes, for starters) but I wanted to get him sculpted so I didn't break my flow with the painting side of things. With him finished, I have progressed and all of the tanks in his platoon, are now decal ready. I just need to finish painting the tank commander :) :

Cheers :) .

I've started on the company commander now. She's going to be getting some large speakers and a flag-pole attached to the turret and will be talking into a hand-held microphone.

When trying to decide what I was going to sculpt, I put an 'ideas' post up on Facebook. What a mistake that was. No sooner had I mentioned that it was a female, I got 'putting make-up on' and 'doing her lipstick'... then when I called it out, it got offensive so I deleted the topic.

I hate trolls... especially bigoted ones :( .

Indeed.

It has sort of helped to stall progress as well. I have only got as far as adding the speakers and flagpole and sculpting her torso...

... but I ordered another tank and have started something new (in order to keep things ticking over):



It's at a very early stage but I reckon you'll know what it will become :) .

A small amount of progress on the proxy Chimera:



Just weapons to go now. I will be going for Heavy-Bolters in the turret and the hull because, I asked around and the verdict was pretty unanimous :D!

Cheers :) ... I'm glad you are enjoying this 'little' project :) .

I think it's getting on for 5 years now...

... and I guess, it would be rude not to share the latest progress :) . This is the finished article (without decals):

Onward and upwards...

The company command tank has stopped. I can't even look at it for now... every time I mix putty, I can't bring myself to use it so it gets wasted. With that in mind, I felt that I needed something to keep things ticking over and I suddenly realised that I had the perfect thing... my Spearhead Detachment.

My Spearhead detachment consists of the following things:

HQ - Tank commander.
Elite - Engineseer and servitors in a Chimera transport.
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (battle-cannon).
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (punisher cannon).
Heavy Support - 3 tanks (plasma cannon).

Seeing as I already have most of the list finished, I just need to finish the Engineseer unit and the tank commander... seeing as I can't work on the tank commander, I have dug out the Engineseer and servitors to work on:

Before:



For work in progress, I will refer you to the relevant blog page:

http://insosworld.blogspot.com/2018/07/water-from-sky.html

It would appear that I have finally started to paint a few miniatures again...
