So... now I am painting things, I thought I'd give some Halflings a go:



These are attached to the first Infantry platoon so I have dug out the command elements to paint... namely a Primaris Psyker (Jedi Beastman), Platoon Commander and Command Squad.

I have just primed the troops and have started to paint the Psyker (because he was already started).

This painting push will be to try and complete the whole platoon; which consists of:

Primaris Psyker.
Platoon Commander.
Command Squad.
Infantry Squad.
Infantry Squad.
Heavy Weapon Squad.
Armoured Sentinel Sqn (3 walkers).
Chimeras (4 vehicles).

The good thing is that the troops have a lot of colours on them so they will be entertaining to paint :) . Hopefully, I'll be able to get the platoon done (I may stall on the Chimeras because they haven't been converted yet... the rest is all ready for paint).

This week, after finishing the Snipers, I got on with painting the Primaris Psyker for the first platoon:



I've also started painting the Platoon Commander and his Command Squad. They are still WIP but there is a pic over at the blog:

http://insosworld.blogspot.com/2018/08/the-dwarfs-are-on-their-way.html

I've got a little further now... they have been washed and are ready for the highlighting now :) .

For some reason, my sculpting muse turned up for long enough to finish sculpting my tank company commander:

Just decals to go now :) :



1x Tank commander with Vanquisher.
3x Punisher.
3x Annihilator.
3x Battle Cannon.
1x Engineseer Chimera.

I think I need to add a Hydra for a bit of air support... so that will probably turn up at some point :) .

I'm hoping it will look better with some decals. The tanks look a bit plain at the moment and I reckon that a few markings will spice them up a little.

The formation is a tank company; made up of a company commander and three platoons of differently armed tanks (each including a platoon command tank). Once the markings are on, everything will become much clearer :) .

I know that I have always said "no bikes" but I managed to get a bunch of Mantic bikes and I thought that they could be Hearthguard Bikers (Spacemarine Scout Bikers) to add to the "high echelon" (Spacemarine) part of my army. Obviously, a small amount of conversion is necessary to make them fit in with my other Hearthguard... so that is what I have started doing :) .

I have snipped the unarmoured torso off the rider and have added a Steel Warrior torso (trimmed down) and head. I have also beefed up the legs and added the standard arms. I still need to convert the arms but as a test conversion, I think it is working so far...



Existing Hearthguard troopers:

There's nothing like a big hobby slump to make you try and finish the more obscure things that lurk on your work-bench...



This is Dash Hound... a speedster to go with my little collection of superheroes:



I have also been painting Primaris Space Marines... which isn't something I would usually do. Hopefully, I'll get back to sorting out these bikes sometime soon:
