So as part of the current IF challenge being held in the IF forum i have finished the start of a small Siege of Terra force, and thought i should post it down here for you all.

 

This army started out as a idea to do a kill-team based on one of the ones in Saturnine (which if you haven't read is great), and i settled on the one lead by Garro. While this plan was a starting point i have soon started adding more models which don't quite fit into a ZM ideology, so the currant plan is to do a 2500 point centurion list and then start adding vehicles, and as such i am currently halfway there with the first 1250 points:

Breacher squad 1

Breacher squad 2

Terminators

Dreadnought

Apothecary

 

gallery_33945_4970_441866.jpg

Delegatus

 

gallery_33945_4970_368389.jpg

Champion

 

And finally a group shot of them all:

 

gallery_33945_4970_1259476.jpg

 

Next up in the painting table is a 15 man Phalanx warder Squad, a 5 man support squad, and Garro himself which will bring it up to 2000 points. After that i will do a 10 man autocannon heavy support squad, and 3 quad rapiers. Following that a Caestus assault ram (for the terminators) a rhino (for the support squad) a defense line (for the heavy support) and a Sicaran Arcus (for the lol's). This will have me at 3000 points if i don't use Garro, and my plan then is to add some White Scars and some Blood Angel allies.

 

Hope you like them and any comments and criticism is gratefully received.

 

For Dorn and the Emperor!

Great job! The blood is spot on as well, nice and minimal just to enhance the minis not detract from them. Lovely!

Really, really well done!

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Really solid work on these chaps, I particularly like all the gore and grime. The Apothecary really looks the business.

I'd give it another like, if I could.

Those terminators look ace. The studded shoulderpads, the shields- great work.

Have look at Pop goes the Monkey for such bits. At least the shields are from that shop.

Thanks everybody! The studded shoulder pads are from a small company called Master Crafted Miniatures who can be found at mastercrafted.co.uk give them a look as they have some other equally excellent bits?

Those Fists look fantastic. Really nice work on all of them, from the bases to the weathering.

Proper gritty.
I like the amount of blacks you have added to break up the yellows

I’m so jealous of both of you having that dreadnought model. And jealous of the painting skills on display here too.

Wonderful stuff !  MkIII, boarding shields, dreadnought, studded shoulder pads and grit n grime, all the hallmarks I can enjoy despite the colour hehe, shame I can't double like :)

 

Mind if I ask where the shields and arms are sourced from please?  Mastercrafted is a great source for spiked shoulder pads!

Thanks dude, this was originally part of my old Iron Hands army but when I sold it I kept a few bits and this was one of them, along with two standard MKIV ones which I will also repaint at some point. Such a shame they stopped doing these as they were lovely models especially all the legion specific ones.

Thank you so much! The shields are from Pop Goes The Monkey, they’ve got a couple of different versions and sizes.

 

The arms are standard GW plastic ones but altered quite a bit. The left arms are just the plastic storm shield arms just trimmed to fit the new shields. With the right arms I had to do a few conversions which included swapping the thunder hammer head for the head from the limited edition FW praetor, taking a right handed lightning claw and trimming all the claw bits off before adding a chainfist cut from a left handed powerfist, and with the axes crafting the heads out of plastic card and attaching them to trimmed down thunder hammer shafts. Quite a lot of work which isn’t really noticeable but I’m happy I did it.

So continuing on with this force i have base-coated the next 20 models for this army. As i already have two squads of Breachers i can now add a 15 man unity of Phalanx Warders to my troop slots, as i will be playing using Stone Gauntlet. Alongside this i am adding a five man support squad who will be armed with either meltaguns or plasma depending on what i am planning on doing with them. I have also made a start on Garro but don't have a photo of him. Once these are all done i will have a 2000 point force for Zone Mortalis, or Centurion rules.

 

gallery_33945_4970_273671.jpg

 

At the same time (because i like/hate painting in batches) i have started on two slightly different items which are also IF based. First we have a larger scale bust:

 

gallery_33945_4970_120773.jpg

 

and then a 1:10,000 scale Battle Fleet Gothic Sword class frigate:

 

gallery_33945_4970_173114.jpg

 

which for some reason looks a slightly different colour but is in fact the same as the others!

 

Anyway as always comments and criticism is welcome. Cheers!

Great stuff!
Feels like there is at least three IF projects put there that make me rethink my colour and stylistic choices.
Where is the bust from? I saw these around on facebook I think

I am constantly re-evaluating my colour choice especially as i have made it so complicated, and the are a lot of easer better looking ones out there. This is the way!

 

As for the bust i picked it up of a guy over on Facebook as you guessed, i would say who but as GW are quite C&D at the moment i don't want to link them up in a public forum (the guy who made the BFG ship had to stop this week sadly). Sorry!

Jeah I chose the vince venturella recipe and it takes me a AGES to get anything yellow. Theres a bunch if cool recipes out there that go WAY faster.
Then again I feel like I learn a lot about airbrushing this and like the look. So there is that .

Boooo! At the C&Ds
