He has that effect on people. I see your spiffing death company and must get back to my squad. Can't have you outnumbering/out producing me!
Get on it!
I've finally finished building my ten Death Company! Except the jump packs, that is. Still, they're looking pretty danged good, if I do say so myself!
Here you can see the progress on the two power fist guys. The bolters weren't all that bad to convert - just a case of switching them over for the left-handed bolt pistols from the Assault Squad kit.
This is the final group shot. All ten Death Company built and glued, backpacks magnetised and just waiting for the jump packs to be done. I have to say, I'm delighted with them. There are a few details here and there I don't like and a couple of build issues where, for example, the backpacks don't quite sit flush against the shoulder pads, but all in all I'm thrilled with them. So happy to be building and painting again after such a long time! Next step is to get the paints out and hopefully start making them look even more gorgeous!
In related news, these arrived for me in the post today:
As much as they may look really tasty, they're not actually white chocolate buttons. That there is one hundred 32mm resin bases which I ordered from a new studio in the UK called BrushKnights. The guy running it is my friend who's doing the Iron Warriors blog that's linked in my sig. I have to say, I'm absolutely delighted with the quality of these bases. I wanted them plain so I could do my own designs, but I know he's got some nicely detailed scenic bases, too. No way I was paying Games Workshop to replace the bases that had come in my (old) Death Company boxes!
(I'm not getting into the debate of 25mm vs. 32mm, but because I'm starting this army entirely from scratch, I decided to go for the larger bases for a more cinematic feel to my army. The models are currently superglued lightly to the 25mm bases, but they come off easily enough and will eventually be placed on these lovely big bases instead!)
Anyhoo, that's all from me for now. Busy weekend ahead with family visiting, but I may get a chance to do some painting!
