Another offering in my hopelessly attempt to actually focus on a coherent project. This time we have a pre-Magnus Thousand Sons legionary. Nearly finished, he just needs a bit of detailing and base.





The basic idea is that these chaps missed the Party-on-Prospero and have since re-evaluated their goals in life, there's a whole load of writey stuff on my blog if anyone fancies a look.

Since it takes longer than forever for me to put plastic stuff together, then fill, then file, then fill again only to realise I've used the wrong parts ............ I'm getting some Ion Age 15mm Prydians ready to play the part of some (Loyalist?) Iron Warriors, or Death Guard, or someone else. I'm also making a 15mm scale Rhino out of cork and plasticard (because it's a very cute apc) which is proving to be good fun!

Thanks for looking.

Cheers vodkafan, I'm still umming and ahhhhing over how mucky he should look so I've put him to the side for a while.

In the meantime, however, I've been trawling through my 15mm drawer for my Iron Warriors project and found this lot:



The soldiers are Ion Age Prydian Retained troops and the Dreadnought is a modified Warmachine light warjack, not quite sure which one but I think he fits the bill. The dread was modified with a Skitarii head, a Genestealer Cults mining laser and a powerfist - still needs a fair bit of work but you get the idea.

And the beginnings of the first of my scratchbuilt rhino's.



Thanks for looking.

Nice marine.

Good luck with the rhino, look forward to seeing the finished vehicle.

Cheers.

I've cut out some more Rhino bits but I just need to man up and glue them on.

Here's a finished squad of Iron Warriors:



I'm also painting up a sample 28mm marine as a Death Guard. Trying to go from a yellowy brown up to a bone white for the main colour and I'm looking forward to playing with corrosion and muck which I've never relly tried before. Will post a pic once I've done some more.

Wow, cool! The orange-clad miniature, is that from Khurasan's spy-fi series?

Cheers.

Love what you've done with the Ion Age minis, will definitely get some for my 15mm gaming project (that is, when I've reduced my lead mountain somewhat...)

Cheers Ockman, the orange guy is indeed from the Khurasan spy-fi range. I bought a few packs of them a couple of years ago and I gave them the role of Imperial Guard (in classic jumpsuit style), great models as always.

Latest larking is 28mm again. My attention deficit once again cropped up and I grew bored of the pre Magnus Thousand Son, it looked fine but just not that interesting. Instead I'm going to have a go at some 30k Death Guard, they might be more fun to paint and I'm going to try a looser painting style and not be quite so tight and tidy. Also I get to have a go at really dirtying them up.

Here's the base layer:



I've had a go at starting with a yellowy brown and going up to a bone white instead of the usual white. I recently read a great piece of advice which I found quite inspiring when painting and converting marines. It said to treat each figure as an individual personality with their own history as opposed to seeing them as a mass of carbon copies. So, I've resolved to create a squad in which each figure will be converted to some extent and here's the first:
