Thanks guys.

Still working on the conversions. The fish eyes came in so most of the tanks got them glued on. I still need to make some hatch plugs for some Salamanders and the Baneblade but that's mostly done. I also finished the Commissar plugs aside from sculpting the arms on them.

Image

The Salamander Scouts got their autocannons this week. I ended up hacking apart a Chimerax turret, brass wire and a plastic tube that I drilled out to make the muzzle. One turret got me two autocannons. I'm still thinking on the Command, I think I'm going to try and make a heavy flamer like the Hellhound's cannon out of plastic.

Image

The Exterminators got muzzles for their twin autocannons as well. I drilled out a plastic tube and cut away a small bit down the side so I could fit them side-by-side. They came out all right I think.

This is really the sort of thing what this whole hobby is about!

Keep us inspired!

BTW, what are those purple bits in the background?

Thanks.

They're G-Tanks and a Repair Truck for MonPoc. They go with the guy in my first post.

Most of the building is finished, I just need to sculpt a few more arms on the Commissar markers. I also got the tanks glued to the bases. I used 30 minute epoxy for this, as I wanted something a little more supstantial that super glue.

Image

I came up with a heavy flamer for the Salamander Command, they're a multi-melta from the plastic Squat Trikes. I reworked the barrels a little bit to look more flamer-ish.

Image

The Baneblades are all done as well. They got twin heavy bolter sponsons, a new heavy bolter in hull turret, and new lascannon barrels that made them match the Leman Russ more.

Image

The Stormhammers all got their heavy bolter turrets as well. They weren't too bad once I drilled out the old barrel.

Image

Finally, here's more first pass on the color scheme. Thoughts? I was shooting for something suitably 90s GW. It's not to the level of the Eldar, more a tabletop level I think.

Nice work, Dave.

I'd say that scheme fits well, especially for the level of detail in the sculpt.

I would've thought that you'd forgo the salamander command tanks on principle since they add that unfair extra leader ability :P

No way, I had to deal with that crap for how many years? Now it's your turn to feel the raw, unbridled power that is two leader IG formations.

Well, at least these things can't spawn Wraithlords & Wraithguard...

Conversions look great!

Like a repressed memory, images of that are now in my mind and I want them to go away :wah
