So, last week, I ended up finishing off the last two Imperial Knights that will make up the Renegade faction. The fist one was painted blue in honour of Tzeentch and the other one in colours like those of the Legion Death Guard. I have not done any alterations yet, as I am still figuring out what to do on that front, apart from maybe putting some Chaos vehicle spiky bits on the models in the future fpr a more Chaos-like appearance.
Next, I got my hands on some of the new GW Sector Imperialis round bases (a pack of the 32mm ones and a pack of the 25mm & 40mm bases) and I have tried my hand at painting up one sprue's worth of the 32mm bases. Here is the end result.
Finally, some future upcoming projects will be a Leviathan Dreadnought and Mortarion for the Death Guard 30k Legion - these should be the last two models to finish that off! Then, I try to get to work on some Khorne Daemons, Skaven or Skitarii.
So, there is light at the end of the tunnel, in terms of completing the Blood Angel and Dark Angel battle companies, as I have now finished six tactical squads for each, just about finished two devastator squads for each and just have the assault marines and other extras to do.
I have also had a thought about doing up a second Ravenwing bike squad, with both special weapon guys armed with grav guns and a sergeant armed with a thunder hammer. Here is a simple conversion I did to give the two main bikers the grav guns. The sergeant will come later, once he is built and painted.
Finally, I got my hands on the Age of Sigmar box recently and have started doing up the Stormcast Eternal models. I decided on golden armour with purple, as per the Lions of Sigmar, as I do tend to have quite a few other models with purple on them (Tyranids & Necrons!). The dull gold effect was attempted by painting the armour in Leadbelcher, then washing with Seraphim Sepia - an effect I have used on other m…
So, I've now got one lot of Adeptus Mechanicus models built up and mostly painted (some finishing touches will be needed), in the form of a Cult Mechanicus Elimination Maniple - 2 units of Kataphron Destroyers and a unit of Kastelan robots. The destroyers have one unit equipped with heavy grav-cannons and the other with plasma culverins.
The other purple mechanical meanie that's built & painted is an overhaul of my Necron Destroyer Lord, as he was kind of falling to bits. This is a partial conversion, comprising of a Destroyer chassis and an Overlord torso from the Catacomb Command Barge kit and a full repaint job from blue to purple. Here are the before and after pictures.
Finally, with all that done, I can probably get on with finishing off the last bits of my Land Raider for the Dark Angels vehicle formation, as well as work on the Stormcast Eternals, Skaven and Skitarii.
