Well last night I couldn't sleep, so I got up and unpacked some more stuff and counted how many goblin shields I have and how many I need...
I also got the idea, after looking in my bitz box to retrofit a combi-plasma gun to a model I painted to be a cheap lieutenant. Now that we have no lieutenants, he has to be a cheap lord, cause he is fairly spiffy looking. I don't have a combi-plasma in my entire army so I built one using a left over bit from an Obliterator.
Sorry about the crappy pick, it was late and I had <DELETED BY THE INQUISITION>ty light. Anyway it looked a bit weedy from a distance so I decided to cut off the belt strap, breaking the arm off in the process, and adding in another bit to beef it up. I used a piece from a loyalist dreadnought then a piece from the Gorka Morka box I believe.
The new combi-plasma gun is beefcake, Beefcake!, BEEFCAKE!
I wasn't done there, I retrofitted a heavy flamer bit onto the Beast Rabaan
. He was always suppose to have a heavy flamer and I grinded him down and put the gun end bit on him, but I didn't have a great bit. I looked into adding a tank to him, but discarded the idea. Then I found a loyalist dreadnought bit that I must have acquired when I built Toe Jam. Voila much more obvious heavy flamer...
Then I went to bed, but I thought of another model which is armed with a hand-flamer, which is no longer in existance and I decied to retrofit that to be a combi-flamer. I searched for the perfect bolter to slap on top and found a really old loyalist one with a stock that I liked. I had to do some filing, but voila!
I wasn't done with this post... I had the ammo clips and belts coming out the side for extra old school kool.
I also cleaned up a bit more some of the many Diseased Sons I stripped which were either painted poorly or had heavy weapons... Now I want the heavy weapons back, at least some of them. Some will be undivided troops eventually, plus I've acquire a lot of new models, especially heavy bolters as that is what comes in the plastic box. So my painting table just keeps filling up. I still got to paint 63 goblin shields...
