Yes, where did that skull come from? I've used one that came with the Marine Scout sprue I think for a commissar but I've not seen one with a jaw bone.

 

Perhaps oddly enough, it's from the Ork Boys special/nob sprue. Safe to say, all the ones I have gotten have made their way to my guard models. :P

 

Thanks for the kind replies as well!

Out of interest is there an overall rank table listing all the possible ranks? I'd like to take a shot at converting them into Chaos equivilents

Turns out glueing all the bits on obscures a fair amount of stuff but it's all worth it to see the model done properly. I'm very pleased with him! I slightly underestimated the work required as Bullgryns are pretty big models but it was a nice cross between painting a soldier and tank - just got to get the other two done now tongue.png To attain the full Sergeant rank here are the backgrounds including an all new regimental background piece as usual smile.png

Thanks scats, you're not alone at the new ranks now msn-wink.gif They're good models, despite the lack of variety in them so are worth adding to your regiment if you have a use for them smile.png Who knows what the future holds for the Sergeant Major?

I am insistant that normal ogryn can work too hence painting mine.

I'm sure that I can find a use for Bullgryn even if there isn't a clear one now hahaha! Maybe combine them and ogryn in a list together with some conscripts .....

I'm thinking that they can do ok with their grenade launchers, but mostly close with the enemy for some good old fashioned clobbering. The enhanced save is good and they will not only cover the advancing infantry but should also be good at attracting fire :)

Congratulations on the completion, Lord Commissar! He looks like he could bust heads with the best of them biggrin.png!

 

In addition to smearing Blood for the Blood God, you can load a good amount of it on your brush and pull your index finger along the brush head to flick it over your model; the shield in this case. Practice on a kitchen towel or something first because I went the wrong way on putting some mud on my Missionary using the same technique happy.png.

Haha, yeah now that you mention it. I'd feel sorry for anyone facing Bullgryns charging out of a glider msn-wink.gif He currently stands next to models I completed for last year's ETL and he towers above them, almost as tall as a Chimera! I like the Bullgryns, I will definitely get another box in the future - one will be reserved for Nork of course smile.png

 

Get that completion in sox, the working week ploughs through days so the deadline will creep up on you! 20:00 GMT on Sunday, make sure you've made your completed image post before then!

 

Also don't forget the write ups for easy promotions, we're not looking for prose worthy of award so when you have a few minutes spare and nothing better to do get slapping on your keyboard biggrin.png

Thanks Kier, maybe some Ogryns can work their way into the Shrineworld Garrison? :D I think the paint job GW gave them doesn't do them justice, a bit like the Scions who look much better painted up like proper Guard ;)

Another update on the Colonel. Most of the large areas are finished, the power sword and sash being notable exceptions. I think I'll go with a traditional white sash, nice and neutral so it won't clash with any of the other colours. I should have the sword, sash and most of the details finished by tomorrow, then I can work on the base and dirty him up a bit (weathering on the bottom of the coat and boots, a bit of scuffing and scratches on his armour) and he'll be finished. The picture is really dark, but like the previous WIP's I'll worry about getting the lighting right in the pictures of the finished model.

He looks fantastic Toxic, the details and layers of the face and clothing is top notch. I agree that a white sash would be perfect, to think he's not even done yet! This will be another excellent completion for us to look forward to :tu:

so I will hopefully have this model ready by the end of next week. 

 For me real life intervened and threw big hurdles after big huldles at me(one was a medical one). I had to stop everything I was doing and focus on the problems, I tried to catch up today and saw the most impressive pictures and I've read the many amazing stories. Sadly I'm already out of likessad.png. But I get ten fresh one tomorrow, and they have already been earmarkedbiggrin.png

 

So without further ado have a rushed story and a final picture.

 

EDIT I give up... I've tried to edit my story many times without getting it to fit into the B&C "window"sad.png furious.gif .
