"Imperator Furor" (Emperor's Fury) 601 - EFTC

"Imperator Furor" (Emperor's Fury) 601 - EFTC

I'll admit this at the beginning, but I thought that I had actually finished this tank. In fact it had been sitting on the shelf pretending to be finished. So I grabbed my drybrush and got to work.

So here is the company command tank - 601 "Imperator Furor" (Emperor's Fury). As with the rest of the tank company, the tank name and designation is painted on the underneath.

Above can be seen the right side and the front view of the tank. Having used a skull to represent the number 1, I wanted something different to show the number 0, so ended up digging out a different transfer from somewhere.

I added the comms upgrade from ForgeWorld and also the upgrade from the Apocalypse sprue to help make this tank stand out as the company commander. I also used the Hellhammer cannon from the Baneblade kit to turn the tank into an Eradicator variant.

Onto the left side and the rear view of the tank. Trying to keep the tank looking used I added extra stowage, boxes and fuel cans. With "Imperator Furor" I had a go at modelling mud/grass onto the vehicle.

Using an old tupperware container, I added together water, PVA glue, sand and static grass. I mixed it all up with an old stiff brush and then spread the "mud" onto the tracks, armour panels and mine plough. Overall the result wasn't quite what I was after. I'm happy with the result, just might try doing it differently in the future, maybe adding some ready mix plaster to give some bulk, but never mind. Once the "mud" mix had dried I gave the lower area of the tank a heavy drybrush of Graveyard Earth.

And finally a shot of the company commander, popping out to fire off a few shots at anyone his crew hasn't finished off.

Thanks for looking.

Decisions, decisions....

Decisions, decisions....

.... and I ask my fellow bloggers for their help with this decision.

As many of you know, one of the best things about blogs is being able to see pictures of other peoples work, whether its a photo of a finished model or a series of WIP pics.

My current problem is that I don't know what style of picture to use for my completed model's.

The choice is between two styles, which can be seen below.

A or B

A: As you can see is just a nice simple group shot of the models in their squad

B: Is a bit more complicated and involves taking individual photos of each model and then using Photoshop to make them into a single picture

So, please vote on the right hand side of the page for which photo syle you would prefer me to use on future posts for completed models. Thanks.

Squad 4-1-4 - Finished!

Squad 4-1-4 - Finished!

Sqaud 4-1-4 is finally finished! And I actually mean finished, not my half arsed job when I still need to seal them with varnish.

All of the shoulder pad squad markings have been painted on and the Cadian symbol transfers applied. They've all had their Devlan Mud washes, and then got sealed with Purity Seal.

Here is the squad shot, nothing more to say here.

Leading squad 4-1-4 is our blonde sergeant, equipped with bolt pistol and close combat weapon. The bolt pistol's barrel has been drilled out as well.

Providing comm's is the injured guardsman. No wounded arm is going to stop this guy from carrying the vox set. The aerials aren't quite as bright as they appear in the photo, the flash really brightened them up.

And finally the meltagunner. I've posted a pic of this guy before but here are some more.

Thanks for looking through the squad, but before you go please check out the poll on the right. I'm trying to find out what stye of squad photo I should use. The choice is between:
a) the style used on this post, the squad set out and taken as one shot
b) the style used on previous posts, where I take individual photos of the front and back of each model and then use Photoshop to mold them into one picture

Please vote on the right. Thanks again!
