Well, a short explanation first...
I'm usually painfully slow at achieving any kind of hobby goals but find myself at the moment getting through much more than I usually would, so in short I'm setting up this thread to keep track of it.
I don't build much straight out of the box, there's usually some sort of kitbash or conversion going on.
Stuff you're likely to see in this thread includes members of one of the three chapters of astartes (all DIY, because well I enjoy it more) that i currently collect: These are the Gatekeepers, an Imperial fists successor who have popped up in these parts sporadically for a couple of years; The Harvesters, an ultras successor using mainly Raven Guard tactics; The Sons of Aetius, another ultrasmurf successor with a pro-roman feel. Im in the process of writing some fluff that connects the three in a campaign setting, as well as painting a few examples of the stuff i have them killing.
I'm also planning several allied groups from various imperial agencies, and its a WIP of one of those that is up first for pics:
This will be when I finally finish it, Salomin Monkshood of the Aconitas Rogue Trader clan.
In game, he'll show up as an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor with retinue. Built from a Dark Elf pirate because i loved the sneer on his face and the crazy hair. (which I'll attach after painting as it has a tendency to snap off)
I need to straighten his bionic leg before he gets a proper base, at the moment it has something of a kink in it.
