Update: Valhallan 199th (Part 2)

A quick update on my ongoing projects for my imperial forces. After finishing up the Valhallan 199th this summer I have really gotten into continuing the work on them more so now. I want to bring them up to a decent 2K army, and also add a few extra bits that will make the army shine. Among the new additions will be some crewmen for the Sentinels and Tanks that the army has, the crewmen while only for looks will also serve as loot/objective counters for games when I play with the army. I think I will also add crewmen to the top hatches of all the tanks to give them a little bit of flavor and look a lot more animated.

The Russ is getting is the Griffon....

A shot of the various MoO Conversion...and a Commissar!

Yes...the Pask model will be the Mach's tank commander...I got an excuse to buy and use this cool model  now...the tank now has sponsons too! WOO HOO!

Another shot of the various projects....the top pic shows the completed Russ later that night...

Commissar Yarrick's "Fortress of Arrogance"

The Fortress of Arrogance project began right after I finished working on models for Games Day 2009's Big Battle event. I was still on a Super Heavy high so to say, and I started putting in time with the Fortress at the same time.

I've always like the Fortress, but building the turret and murals on it always stopped me from attempting to build it. I chose to scrap the mural idea, there was no way I was going to get close to that. The turret was another problem, but after a few builds before it, my skills with plasticard and greenstuff were much better now. So I was ready for a step up to something bigger and more challenging. Most of the building was straight forward, but building the pulpit for Yarrick took some work, and then came the painting. I had to paint every rivet on that tank gold....ARGH! It took me a few days, and most of my sanity to sit there and dot every little rivet on that tank gold. In the end there are only 4 rivets I didn't paint, which are well hidden and no one noticed, other then that every rivet has some gold plating on it. I also moved the HK Rocket to the front of the tank, I didn't like the position in the GW version. The mural area I left empty, I was going to attempt to write the name of the tank there, but changed my mind and left it blank. Besides with all that gold who would notice right....Since I did this on the fly and very quick I didn't get any pics during the build, but here are some after its all done and ready for battle.

OOOOOO!! So much Gold!

Off to battle we go....

Update: Valhallan 199th (Part 1)

Well it's been a month since the last real update of the goings on of the 199th Valhallan Light. In that time I've been considering new additions to the army. I've been thinking of adding some new armor to the force and giving them a little more heavy firepower. Right now the infantry part of the equation seems to be well in hand. Still there is room for improvement......

First off we have a possible model for the Master of Ordnance, originally the conversion was going to be a generic MoO, but with the long coat he fits the 199th theme real well.....

Nothing says Super Heavy like a 2nd generation baneblade, a Macharius which I got my hands on recently will join the ranks of the 199th. This will be their entry in the super heavy level of game play. I am also going to use a Commander Pask model as the tank commander for the Mach.......

Finally....I think a Griffon will be a nice addition to the army that will fit in well with the theme of the army. I also considering a standard Leman Russ to join the armor ranks along with another Griffon if I can scrape up the parts to make another one. I want to stay light on armor for this force since they are suppose to be a Light Infantry Regiment.....

Enjoy! :)

Rynnsguard Militia (Part 1)

While a lot of time was spent over the summer working on the Valhallan 199th, I still haven't forgotten about the Rynnsguard. Since the army is going to be made out of cadian models I dug up my older metal cadians and have begun to test out the Rynnsguard scheme on them to see how they might fill out my troop spots in the army. I'm still up in the air about the army list for the whole force, but these guys are alot of fun to paint up and try out with the new scheme. Check out these two volunteers in the new Rynnsguard Militia.

Enjoy! :)
