Mocked up and glued a few things on tonight! I had an idea to use some leftover vicious claws from my son's wraiths on the fist but it looked a little wonky. I may play around with them a bit more to see if I can get it to work. It looked a little too chaos/xenos for my taste, but I do like the idea. I also only have two, and I think three might be what I need to make it work but I won't be able to get that.

I also stared at the legs to determine how I was going to convert this guy and I have a plan... that involves cutting up the legs entirely... each red line is a cut...

Thanks, duz_! I am also hoping when I'm done with the legs that I will be able to flip the leg armor upside down. I like the look of a 'shield' more than a 'window'. I am also hoping to just magnetize the leg armor because I'd eventually like to try some freehand on both pieces.

No going back now! I also included a shot of the magnetized storm bolter. I'll probably run that always but if I ever play zone mortalis I can use the flamer if I want to.

Thanks! I've got more to do but am going to hold off until I get the plasticard so I can better gauge where cuts should be.

 

Tonight I got my DoS Vow 2 ready for priming. I probably won't get to prime them until later in the week because of the weather. I'm hoping to finish painting the tactical squad I'm working on soon so I can free up some more corks. Barrels are all drilled and I decided to run the reivers with carbines and not even attempt any CC options.

 

In the back you can see one of my bases for DoS Vow 1. I've got two more drying right now and bases ordered.

We're not set to receive much rain where I am. I'm still looking for a good gray primer that I can pick up locally. The current one I have is ok.

What I have done to make it work with my current primer is prime, base coat, then lightly seal my model, that way during highlighting and detail work I'm not rubbing off the paint with my ham fists.

Once the weather warms up I'm going to order some of the badger primer so I can get more work done with my air brush.

Yeah I'm sorry about that. Also I wish I would have paid more attention to locations of our fine group. I was in Indy earlier this year for a work conference. It would have been great to try and meet up for a drink or game, Dracos.

 

I put my 3rd vow in for DoS. I think I'm going to keep it at a vow per squad because I never know when I'm going to have time to work on stuff. I will say this has been really great for inspiring me to really push getting my backlog done. Everything will slow down come painting time but at least I'll have plenty ready. Also there is something satisfying about having things off the sprue.

 

My hellblasters are all pinned and ready to prime after I get the stuff in front of it done. I also made another batch of bases so I can not violate ETL/DoS rules. I made a few 40mm bases as well this time in case I can get a 4th vow of some characters done.
