As most of my hobby projects here on B&C have been in various events I haven’t previously felt the need to have a dedicated thread for all my stuff, but it is getting to the point where having one might be the right move, if only to help me keep track of what I have done and what needs doing.
I will try to keep this first post updated as projects go on.
My various projects:
I really liked what Forgeworld was doing for 30K Mechanincum from when they started back in 2013/14 (I think) and have bought most of the new units as and when they came out. I finally took the plunge and started assembling and painting then for for ETL VI and am continuing them currently in Loyalty & Treachery IV.

A little fun conversion project back in 7th, I have more work in mind for these but haven’t really done anything with them for a long time. The idea started as a project to make alternate Tech-Thralls for my Taghmata but evolved from there as I started messing around with the models and bits. These are one of several Fantasy armies that I have converted for 40k use.

30k Legion – Brotherhood of Ash
I started these in Loyalty & Treachery III and while I only painted three units I built a lot more. One of these years I will get back to them, but unfortunately the colour scheme as I imagined it has not worked out as I had hoped. Untill I have that problem resolved they are likely to languish.
Fluff wise they are a loyalist company (I have roughly 100 bodies to work with) from a traitor legion, probably Word Bearers (though I planned to play them as Alpha Legion). They saw what chaos was doing and rejected it for the Imperial Truth. However as they were already tainted they become unknowing champions for Necoho the Doubter (From old fantasy fluff, but as the two universes Chaos are so interconnected it seemed appropriate to use him).
Back when I started these in 7th, after the release of plastic Thousand Sons, I had played with the idea of linking them to a 40k Chaos army (using the plastic 1K Sons for parts) that I was also going to do that would have been what is left of the company. Still preaching the Imperial Truth in a universe where the Imperial Creed is the human faith and chaos is all too real. I am not sure I am still going to do this or if I just leave it as 30k force.

Started these guys as part of my first event, Facing the Unknown, in which several of us started a new army so that we could go through the learning experience together. I always like the Deathwatch from back in the day and as Primaris would not fit with my other marine armies I though combining them would work, and luckily so far it has.

The Defense of the Elysium Forgeworld
This is a collection of projects for 40k
Scathian XX Auxillia Regiment - An Ogryn Regiment that I started in 2017 A Tale of Hobbyists. The army was intended to use the Imperium Keyword and used Ogryn like profiles from acros the Imperium to make a soup army representing an Ogryn regiment before it is split into smaller units and attached to other Guard regiments. The changes to match play since the index days of the first few months of 8th mean that they are no longer a battle forged army.
Elysian Athanatoi – a Spacewolf count as
Another idea I started playing with in 7th, and one I intend to make progress with this year. These are going to use the Spacewolf rules to represent the Elite Tech-Guard of Elysium Forgeworld and have at their base the Stormcast Vanguard. When I saw the Griff-charges when they were released I thought this would be a nice fantasy to 40k conversion projects that I keep on doing. I bought the models and then other things got in the way.
My so called Men of Iron (since Blackstone Fortress I have considered rethinking this bit)
They are a refurbishment and rounding out of my 2nd edition metal Necrons. I started them in August Arena 2017 and continuing to work on then in the Xeno Community Event.

Other projects that I have started but have not really come up on the B&C before (eg stuff I need to get back to at some point). I am not going to list all unfinished armies, or un-started armies for which the models are still in boxes, just the conversion/interesting ones, otherwise there would be a GK, a space marine Eagel themed bike army, a Wraith-host, plastic necrons, some guard, some chaos some, everything really!
Started in 6th as a Lizardmen to 40k project, Originaly just Khorne demons but I do have plans to do a bit for each of the gods. I was considering Ork and Demons as suitable ports for Lizardmen into a 40k army rules and chose demons as it required less conversion work (and less bodies needed to convert).The AoS flavor for Lizardmen as ‘good’ demons has sapped my enthusiasm for this project.
Sylvaneth and Tyranids. Another porting project. I had bought a box of 2 Treemen and a lot of Dryads many years ago as I like them and had considered doing a Woodelf army in Fantasy centered on the trees. Later I thought I might try to port them to 40k as Slanessi demons but when the Lizardmen port idea took hold I dropped that. Then the Kurnoth Hunters were released and the idea of a Tyrnad army based on them took off: Dryads as gaunts, Kurnoth as Warriors and other middeling Nids and the big ones as Tyrnats and Carnifexes. I converted about 1500p back in 7th but did not get round to painting yet (in part as I discovered that the brown spray was a redish brown and not wood like enough)
