Figured I better post this sort of thing here rather than the AM forum. Seems my absence has addled me more than I thought and I am forgetting where stuff goes. Anywho, here is my astra millitarum regiment for your viewing plesure. And forgive me for the first few pics. They were done on my phone so, were not as good.

 

igdesign2_zps65b67d05.jpg

 

A concept I made from an Imperial Guard painter

 

IMG-20140605-00085_zps80f04c6a.jpg

 

And the first squad. As you can likely see, I have done the autocannon more like an anti-material rifle

 

IMG-20140708-00090_zps8d77ed9e.jpg

 

IMG-20140708-00091_zpse8f22983.jpg

 

My Astropath. I will definatly get a better shot of him as I am proud of him

 

IMG-20140708-00093_zpsb92235ea.jpg

 

IMG-20140708-00094_zps41f6338c.jpg

 

IMG-20140708-00095_zps45988dec.jpg

 

And here is my Rapier Destroyer Battery converted to be the sort of cannon that could be air dropped from a valkyrie (and under the rules, I believe they can be)

 

And here is the shots I have done with my Tablet. As you can see, much better.

 

IMG_20140715_154750_zpsd595c7aa.jpg

Here shows off a selection of my collection, mostly what I have painted and my Company Command Squad.

 

IMG_20140715_154953_zpsab1e2670.jpg

A close up of my command squad. Need to sculp a berret on the other morter crewman, but once thats done I can undercoat and paint (as well as base the morter). You can also see my old horrible colour scheme on the morter crewman with the vox.

 

IMG_20140715_154836_zpsf4a2e48c.jpg

My Scion Command Squad. Originaly they were a Company command squad with carrapace armour and a body guard (see the dog) but in the new rules (thats 6th and later 7th) having a frontline warlord like it was didnt work out so well so now its a scion command squad with a preist (yeah, thats that dog again)

 

IMG_20140715_155041_zps106626d9.jpg

The Platoon Command Squad. I have bought a taurox to drive them around in, but I am waiting for a conversion kit for it. Will post pics of that when the kit arrives.

 

IMG_20140715_155214_zpsb682b77d.jpg

Here is a better picture of the squad above. You can see it much better and note the grenade launcher is converted to be more of a, break open one, rather than one with a revolving cilinder.

 

IMG_20140715_155300_zpsca730125.jpg

And of course the secound squad to round out the platoon.

 

IMG_20140715_155720_zpsac084cbe.jpg

And here is of course my scions. Basicaly Kasrkin with trimmed helmets and berrets sculpted on.


My Astra Millitarum The 88th Airborne Horse Artillery. Enjoy the pics and the WiPs

My Space Marines The Order of Hyberon. All complete so enjoy the work

My Space Wolves Howland Greywolfe's Great company. WiP

 

That's a good looking Taurox. I'm glad someone in the Imperium has figured out how to put wheels on a truck. Figures it would be a regiment who take their sermons from large dogs and drop horse artillery from aircraft.

They look nice - the scheme is nice too, especially the maroon berets :D reminds me a lot of 7 Reg. RHA :)

Simple. The Iron Warriors are a battered and dented vintage AK-47. Iron Hands are a modern factory fresh FN SCAR, with every piece of tech possible hooked to it. Both will kill you stone-dead, but one's a lot prettier while it's killin'.

A nice start but the title promised "Airborne Horse Artillery". I shan't be happy until I've seen horses with parachutes!

No sir. Four legs, hooves, and a parachute strapped to it's back. If dogs can do it, then horses better step up.
