Greetings Brothers !

 

Long time lurker, first time poster on the BnC, I've been amazed at your creations for a while now !

I started  around the middle of 3rd (with some Sons of Medusa, then onto a sizeable Alaitoc force before shifting to the ones that drove me to 40k : the Dark Angels !), left before 5th and came back at the end of 7th to witness the birth of 8th edition !

During all those years I've amassed lots of kits without finding the time nor the motivation to clear my ever-growing backlog, but it all stops now ! Or so I hope...

 

I'll use this thread as a reminder that no backlog is going to clear by itself, so you can expect WIP pictures of currents projects/paintings on a very irregular basis ! Feel free to comment, criticize and advise me on how to improve !

 

Without further ado, some pics of my few completed units :

 

Emperor's Champion (not sure what our equivalent would be), dug it out of a box, not sure I finished painting it sweat.gif

Spoiler

 

Tactical squad from Dark Vengeance
Spoiler

 

Librarian Dreadnought, because why not !
Spoiler

 

 

I also have a few WIP units, namely another tactical squad, some sergeants/lieutenants and a plastic Contemptor, :

Spoiler
 

Contemptor is fully magnetized, but I can't decide whether or not adding some bling on the right shoulder :

Spoiler

 

I'll try finishing these before starting anything else, but that might prove difficult as I have so many bits lying and a few concept ideas sweat.gif (seriously, where is my Plasma Predator ?!?)

Well met, brother!

 

Glad you decided to start this thread, and commit to getting your forces in combat readiness. I look forward to seeing your work. So far, I am particularly a fan of your champion. Our closest unit would be the Company Champion.

 

A mighty warrior on the battlefield, indeed. I have had great success with him in many battles.

Welcome to the Rock brother!

Well, you’re off to a good start, that’s a great looking army. I’m looking forward to seeing some of your creations, I love unique takes on models. Even if something’s not necessarily legal, it’s nice to have some fun like that every once in a while.

As for motivation, you’re on the right track with your thread! The Frater around these parts are awesome motivators, and always willing to help out. Speaking of which, what did you have in mind for that Contemptor shoulder? Keep the pics coming Wesalia!

@Berzul : Thanks ! If, or when, I get to a decent painted force I might use it as such !

 

@Greenz : .Thank you ! as for the Contemptor shoulder, I was pondering if it should remain plain (3rd pic) or blinged with a half emblem like in the last pic.

 

That reminds me, I still have some Dreadnoughts in a box (that's the catch when you move to a new apartment, everything ends up in boxes somewhere) that I might try to dig up later (Venerable, Mortis and Chaplain... Yes I do love Dreadnoughts).

So I managed to find a couple of hours to spray the Contemptor and work on this guy :

First time in over a year that I've touched my brushes... It felt like I was taking forever just for these first steps. Hopefully he will be done tomorrow and then onto the dread !

Out of likes but he looks great so far.

Okay, so nothing on the Contemptor's bling but I did received some photo-etched blades today and it allowed to start another project I've in mind for a while :

Thank you Stobz !

 

Contemptor is now done :

The Librarian has been sprayed black, so I worked on a travel buddy for him :

Spoiler

 

It should be safe to build a small force with those guys around to monitor new recruits ph34r.png

 

Bonus question : does anyone know how to adapt a hurricane bolter system to a rhino chassis ? Or could provide with some scratchbuild examples to build one ?

RE: Hurricane Bolters on Rhino, by far the easiest solution is to use the Storm Raven ones, I'll show a pic when I get home :tu:

Biker now finished after... too many days. I'm not sure I like to paint bikes huh.png

Spoiler

 

I have yet to decide what to paint next : some tactical squad, chaplain on bike, dreadnought (chaplain, mortis), predator... Or something that is still on sprue sweat.gif

No progress on the tacticals for now (I'll be putting some paint on them later today), but the next unit is ready for priming !
