Cheers :) .

The 'Ogryn' are from here:

https://madrobotminiatures.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_30&products_id=122&zenid=p31586nq5ueivfpcv4jhiaamv1

As much as I like the Ogryn idea, I have never thought of them as fantasy ogres in space... more 'Hulk' like... so bigger, broader humans rather than pot bellied monsters. Hence, when I saw these ones, they not only ticked the big human box but are also a bit Catachan in look so it was a no brainer. They definitely needed a bit of beefing up though... the torsos are not wide enough for this project (that's why I converted them a bit). Either way, they'll do for now... until I make my own at some point :) .

Both competition sculpts together :) :



I've started a third but it won't be done in time to enter the competition...

I suddenly decided that I needed to have a Stormlord in my Squat army but I didn't think that the existing Stormlord looked like it could house 40 troops so I thought... "I know, I'll build a Leviathan that counts as a Stormlord".

To cut a long story short, here's where I am at the moment. Most of the structure is finished but I need to add the drivetrain, track guards, side sponsons, weapons and details:



So much more to do... but it's getting there :) .

In order to carry on with the build, it was necessary to attach the wheels and tracks so that I could work out dimensions:



Now that they are fitted, I can start thinking about the track guards and side sponsons. With the side sponsons in mind, I decided it would be easier to just order the Baneblade sponsons because it would give me all the weapons and a means of fitting them (even if I converted things a bit) so I have ordered one of these and am waiting for its arrival:

In the meantime, I can start filling and sanding if I need to :) .

Work on the Stormlord has paused for the time being because I am thinking about how to deal with a few design points... and I have also been sculpting again... so it may be a little while before things kick off again.

In the meantime... my Squat greens have now been cast up:



I have some copies and am converting a few to also get cast up... it seems that there may eventually be a tiny selection of them :) .

A Squat Commissar today :) :



Since the image was taken, a basing tab has been added, ready for him to be sent off for casting :) .

I am not involved with the Kickstarter side of things... but some of my sculpts have taken the big step into Kickstarter stardom... so if you are interested in owning a few of my sculpts, head along and have a look :) :

There will be more added to the range and variations on existing bodies... so this is just a taster :) .

I thought I'd get some images of the army, as it stands at the moment. There is still a bit to go but this is where it's at :) :

Infantry Company: https://i.imgur.com/X7ccsO3.jpg

Veteran Company: https://i.imgur.com/yAqF2yN.jpg

Armoured Company: https://i.imgur.com/kjnwe8T.jpg

High Eschelon Leadership Company: https://i.imgur.com/LhgWcXP.jpg

I still need to sort out the third infantry platoon and the transport for the Infantry Company and Veterans... but I'm almost there :) ... well, apart from paint ;) .

Now that I've finished the head-swaps for my troopers, I have had the chance to get a bit of priming done so I can add a few new recruits to the army :) :

The first troops are painted... I still haven't got to the primed ones yet...



The trouble is that I have been doing a lot of sculpting... here's the next five WIPs :) :



I'm getting there... slowly ticking of the various types of trooper :) .

Cheers :) ... I've stopped sculpting for a little while so that I can paint a few more :) .

I can get the bodies done pretty quickly... but I've sculpted so many arms that I find them a bit of a chore... so I have to summon the enthusiasm to get them done.

I see what you mean about the specialists :) . I will be leaving that 4 by 2 in place so that different special weapons can just slot onto them :) .
