They are purely color scheme test subjects and don't have game role. 

 

More miniatures will be coming in time. smile.png

Great job!
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

I'm going to start by expressing my enthusiasm for the skyshield pad scheme :P

But yeah, ever since the old fluff around the Van Saars providing iirc manpower, but i presume these days more like equipment for Necromunda's Guard regiments, there's been some cool concepts available in this area. 

There's some very cool Storm Trooper conversions from Van Saars floating around the place, as well; and browsing pinterest, some rather nifty beret headed and extra stowage'd very strongly 'Guard' vibes V.S. , in khaki, olive drab, etc. schemes.

could be some further potential around sentinel etc. counts-as using some of those ambulatory spider-walker exo-skeleton conversions some are building. 


Vox Stellarum efforts:
The Unyielding Adamanticores [truescale Astartes, auxilia, and sectorial AdMech; M37/38]
The Haunting Harii of Hvergelmir [truescale Astartes ... and associates]
The Unification Wars [truescale Thunder Warriors, (Proto-)Astartes, Army of Unification, Aegyptian-style Proto-Mechanicus raiders, etc.]
Combat Archaeology [Tomb Raiding for Fun & Prophet]
Horus Heresy [truescale loyalist IVth, VIIIth; Agents of the Sigillite; VIth; and so much more; and Umbral's amazing Traitors]
The Worlds-Wide Webway [(Dark) Eldar, Imperial Inquisition, an a-maze-ing realmweave of fear and wondermeant]
Thorian Inquisition [some rather different Inquisitorial Storm Troopers, true-scale Fire Hawks, Black Dragon, Inquisitor and associates, etc.]
For Whom The Great Bell Tolls Thrice [attempts to put the 'priest' back in 'tech-priest' with more-medieval mechanicus]
InquisiNecronMunda [the log that incepted it all - at least two Inquisitors, truescale Deathwatch, local enforcers, cultists, etc.]

Necromunda has a lot of "surplus" people so I think Van Saar pay Imperial Tithe with Astra Militarum Regiments too

I quite like Van Saar kit so I will try to keep conversions at minimum:a few pouches here, an extra grenade there, a chainsword for the sergeant etc

ould be some further potential around sentinel etc. counts-as using some of those ambulatory spider-walker exo-skeleton conversions some are building.

First of all I need to make a "Core" army - several infantry squads, a couple of tanks, a Superheavy and supporting staff (enginseer, astropath, psykers)
Then, as I hope, GW will release some servorigs and other van saar stuff.smile.png


A WiP photo, just to show that the process is underway

They are almost identical because I do them "by pose". This batch is made of "Rutgeers"/.
Also the paint scheme of a head... um.. tentacle has been changed. I didn't like metal & purple on a test subjects and made it more bright and acidic.
 
14 are done, 50 more to go!

very, very cool - I like the hint of the old-school 'classic' Van Saar scheme in there. Also, the camo-green/olive-not-quite-drab is doing rather well for militaristicness

The Van Saar look fantastic so far. Their design will provide a unique army for sure.

Great going with the ogryn; the use of the knight faceplate for a gutplate is a nice touch.

I am not sure if the lubricant is likewise :P but it certainly got an audible laugh when I saw it written there. Well done. 

The back tattoo's a good call as well.

These guys are pretty cool. It's nice to see a unique take on an existing army pattern. The Ogryn is particularly inspired too. Very nice execution of your idea here!

Great looking army but the stand-out detail for me is the knight face as a gut plate on the ogryn. Just perfect

Grey, however, failed to capture the ape. It escaped to France where it murdered a rich widow and was hanged.

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?
