Infantry Squads

Right still no pictures but there is a reason for this.

The first reason is I'm lazy and haven't got around to taking any photos, but the main reason is that I'm trying to get the models completely finished before I take any photos of them.

My currenttask is completing the 4 infantry squads that have been sitting around collecting dust for the past few months. These squads are from platoons 7 and 9. In each squad there is a sergeant, special weapon and 8 lasgun armed troopers. One of these does have a vox caster. The special weapon for platoon 7 is a flamer and every squad in this platoon will have one. I'm also thinking of keeping these guys to one side and given them some transport to act as a quick flaming response to battles or for city fights. Platoon 9 has grenade launchers, a nice versatile weapon.

In the not too distant future, Platoons 6 and 8 will be armed with meltaguns and plasmaguns. I'm looking at using the plastic versions of the weapons from the Space Marine sprues to do this, and also to make it a bit different to the metal Cadian models. In the far future this will be complemented with some FW Cadian special weapons, if only they did them without respirators :(.

Anyway back to painting and fingers crossed some pictures by next Monday.

Blog Virgin

Right, first blog here goes.

This blog is being started having been inspired by Col. Gravis' Praetorian Guard blog and also Admiral Drax' blog, so thanks guys.

Firstly, I'll start with a list of completed projects etc, or at least ones which are near completion:

Commissar Yarrick
Command Squad - with Commissar
Heavy Bolter Squad - Hotel Alpha - 3 x Heavy Bolters
Mortar Squad - Mother Alpha - 3 x Mortars
Lascannon Squad - Lima Alpha - 3 x Lascannons

Ratling Snipers x 7
Vindicare Assassin

Platoon 700
Command Squad - with Commissar
Squad 712 - 10 x Guardsmen - Sergeant, Vox, Grenade Launcher
Squad 714 - 10 x Guardsmen - Sergeant, Vox, Grenade Launcher

Platoon 900
Command Squad
Squad 913 – 10 x Guardsmen – Sergeant, Vox, Flamer
Squad 914 – 10 x Guardsmen – Sergeant, Vox, Flamer

Cadian Pattern Sentinel x 2

Leman Russ Battle Tank
Leman Russ Demolisher

Thats pretty much what I've got finished so far. Although everything needs some small detail finished - like decals or basing. I think that provides me with a pretty good base to expand on with everything else.

And now for the huge list of things that I am yet to complete. A lot of this stuff is still on boxes floating around my study.

Creed and Kell special characters
2 x Commissars
3 x Preachers
3 x Cadian Officers
2 x Cadian Guardsmen at ease (Ltd ed models)
Kasrkin Squad - 10 x Kasrkin
Cadian Special Weapons - 3 x Meltaguns, 2 x Plasmaguns
Cadian Squads - about another 4 squads of 10 I think
Heavy Weapons - another 6 heavy weapons to be built
Armageddon Pattern Sentinel
Forgeworld Artemia Pattern Hellhound - so close to completion
2 x Chimera Transports
Leman Russ Exterminator
Converted Leman Russ Vanquisher
Emperor's Fist Tank Company - 4 tanks built: 1 almost completed (pics will be on here soon), 1 painting has begun, 1 basecoated, 1 unpainted and 6 still on sprues.

This is my biggest project at the moment. There are quite a few bits of Forgeworld gear going onto these tanks, and they are all being modelled as if they are on a continuing campaign - so lots of battle damage, lots of equipment etc.

As you can see there is a stupid amount for me to do. I'll get some pics of everything up on here next so I can get some comments and ideas. Thanks for looking guys.
