Thanks :)

 

Misspent youth, too much time on my hands and non-smoker/light drinker so need to spend my cash on something ;)

Excellent work on the "counts as a" Salamander. In case Games Workshop acts like a [female dog] again and makes the vehicle non-legal for tournaments, will you use it as a Predator Destructor or a Leman Russ Exterminator?

More than likely stay with the IG and make it into a counts as Exterminator. It may even be possible to add a second AC barrel ;)

 

The other option is to call it a Chimera and be done with it...

Armies on Parade 2018 - I thought I would give it a go but did not give myself enough time to do more than a basic display board - tried to use it to tie the models together

 

A slight hiccup was that the water effect did not dry in time so there where white bits but it could have been ice :)

 

See what you think ;)

Has it really been October 2018 when I last did anything Guard related... cry.gif 

 

That will have to change after the end of the ETL.

 

Just been dusting out the display cabinet and came up with this

 

 
 
Just don't ask how many points there are...

No need to ask because we already know the answer: not enough ;)

 

The thing that might amaze me most about such army shots is the time taken, not just in the models themselves but also in setting them all up for pictures! Then there's the table space... :lol:

Dipped my toe quickly back into the "sort of" guard and added an Officio Assassinorum Vindicare Assassin to the 711th as a break from my DA who are getting some attention at the moment...

He's a great model, you've done him justice :tu: Sadly he's not amazing on the table top but that's not the important thing :P

Been away too long due to RL and other projects...

 

 

Next project sees me back to the Imperial Guard and the 711th CAAB.
 
3 Chimeras and an alternative Hydra primed and ready for camouflage and details.

Another 2 Chimera hulls are now factory ready.
 
Moving on to the turrets and weapons next.
 
The hull numbers will be added later and then they will be sealed prior to weathering
