  1. Welcome to the thread: I'm hopefully going to post up a combination of my homebrew Lore for the regiment, modelling/converting logs and guides, and painted models showcases featuring troopers, officers, grenadiers and vehicles. Just to keep things on-topic, let's keep it restricted to Rogue Trader Imperial Guard for the moment. I had imperial guard models since 2nd edition; I got into the hobby via having a copy of the old Rogue Trader 40k Compilation which had the first Genestealer cult articles and lists in it and the brood brother models made with 1st ed Imperial Guardsmen really appealed to me. They weren't available however- apparently the moulds got broken. So I started off with some Cadian models and collected a medium-sized (at the time) force. Some time in my teens, Warhammer World opened and I was extremely happy to discover I could mail order things- even RT era things- in the shop. So I ordered a load of the metal RT era troopers- the ones with poseable arms. Eventually I worked out which ones I liked best and narrowed down my force exclusively to the models sculpted by Mark Copplestone. There was something about the heavy look of the armour and boots in his sculpts that appealed to me. I originally had all my RT guard painted in the same ice/urban blue-black and blue-grey scheme I'd had my cadians in, which was pretty similar to the original RT IG colour scheme. Sometime a couple of years in I decided I didn't like that any more and went with a scheme inspired by the enemy marines in the massively influential video game Half-Life; at the time I think I must have put several thousand hours into that game. There's one trooper in particular that pretty much just is the beret guy from HL. That scheme has persisted to the present, although very few of the original models have survived unmolested: fairly early on, I decided to ditch the RT era lasguns, which is a decision I'm still happy about, as it happens, and make autoguns for the troops as similar to the MP5 submachineguns and shotguns that the HL marines had as I could make them. This is the decision that put me where I ended up now- that is, saddled with a self-imposed directive to convert pretty much every trooper. Each autogun is converted from a RT bolter, a length of space marine power axe or chainsword handle and the magazine and barrel from a necromunda autopistol. Pretty work intensive, but not a bad go at the mp5 while still keeping some recogniseable 40k features. The shotguns are from the same necromunda weapon set as the atuopistols, but cut down a little. Having comitted to converting all the guns, it wasn't long before I was converting all the arms too: I'd already done a lot of head swaps due to there being only four basic Copplestone trooper sculpts -and two of those needing some heavy converting just to make them 'standard'. Things just sort of snowballed from there. I'll show some more detailed stuff about why this all is if people are interested, as well as how I do it, I guess. I reckon there's a rich vein of posts to be mined to get where I have the troops today, which is a long distance indeed from where they were. I'm going to say right here in the first post that this will be a thread I update slowly: I don't get a lot of time for modelling and painting anymore on the one hand, and on the other I want to comment on modelling and converting individual troopers because that's the kind of thread I like best and I want to create something I would like to see myself. Please feel free to make requests and offer comment; I'd really appreciate it. In the meanwhile, here are some 'action' shots of my guardsmen, mostly set up for Apologist's 'War of the false Primarch' collaborative blog, which you should definitely check out if you haven't. Thanks everyone
  2. Before an extended hiatus from the hobby, my main army was blood angels. This year I’m remaking them in a new scale for armies on parade.
  3. It's finally time to start a thread here in B&C too, brethren. My loyalist splinter of XIV Legio Astartes, known as the Echoes of Eisenstein, is a labour of love that has now taken three years and lost all brakes a while back. When I got hold of my first Betrayal at Calth set, the path to damnation was set and I knew I had to go and start a whole army of truescaled marines. There would be no respite. There would be no models left unconverted. There would be only chopping and the laughter of ever growing mountains of grey soldiers waiting for their day. Inspired by Veteran Sergeant on DakkaDakka, the spiral into endless cuts and lenghtenings had begun. From so humble a beginning...

  5. I have a few squads of my Raptors already done but here are ny current projects. Raptors seam fairly popular and I was even inspired to start my own from seeing quite a few raptors armys online. Something about that semi grounded aesthetic on space super soilders just seams right. My backstory for my Raptors army is they are the 15th battle company with an overall focus on air imsersion and air support. This is my Stormtalon conversion to look more like a attack hellicoptor. Not original but i think it turned out well. This is my counts as Deredeo Dreadnought conversion. Its a tad tall but people I play with dont care if its modeling for disadvantage. Some more units Im working on. Finally here is some of my finished units so you can see what the rest of my WIP units will look like.
  6. As said in my vow on the ETL thread http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.p...2368&st=175 I am vowing a 5-man Assault Squad with a Rhino (Power fist, 3 Plasma pistols, Combat shield, Meltabomb, Pintle-mounted Storm bolter and Hunter-killer missile,) and a Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought (Heavy Conversion Beamer, Graviton Gun, Extra Armor, Searchlight, Carapace-mounted Cyclone Missile Launcher and Targeting Augury, from IA: Apocalypse 2nd Edition pages 24-25,) from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 526 points I will update later with a full break down if it is needed (let me know if it's needed.) Here are 3 pics of the units. Edit - I deleted links as Photobucket sucks!!! Sadly lost the three photos...
  7. So, partly because everyone in my Crusade group is now putting together a Tyranid army, and I want to add some alien-hunting flavour to the marines I'm taking to that set of games I'm now planning to include an Inquisitor and retinue. Thing is, I don't want to take Deathwatch in an army that's already blinged-out marines, and I don't think the recent Killteam of Acolytes quite matches the more military look I'm after. What I do have, instead, is a box of Necromunda Enforcers, leftover GSC bits, and a whole lot of gumption. My question is: How do I make this pop? What colours should I use for an Ordo Xenos Stormtrooper? Can I get away with converting a captured and augmented genestealer psyker into a counts-as Demonhost? Would love some ideas, recommendations, and examples of your own weird acolytes and agents. Once I dig in to this it'll probably end up over on the WIP forum.
  8. Greetings! I'm a Black Templars fanatic and conversions enthusiast. I used to crawl around this board more than 5 years ago and even posted some of my stuff back then. I took a break from the hobby for a couple of years but reentered the game about 2 years ago. In the past time I put together a lot of stuff (exclusively for my two big loves in 40k: Black Templars and Inquisition) and don't want to hold it back from you. I see this as a compendium of my work and gonna update it whenever I have some new freaks to show off. Criticism and suggestions welcome as always. Old models: Black Templars Castellan mainly based on this wonderful and inspiring Artwork by John Blanche Black Templars Sword Brother also based on the Blanche Artwork Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Black Templars Dreadnought some random Servitor with Heavy Bolter Newer Stuff: Black Templars Assault Squad Inquisition Lexmechanic Inquisition Warrior Acolytes Inquisition Familiar
  9. Like many, I have a pretty substantial backlog of models I need to get to, whether it's something new and unpainted or something older I'm hoping to do better than I did when I was 13 (fingers crossed). I have a bunch up in the apartment with me, and I don't even want to think about how many I have in boxes in the basement... Anywho, I've finally started to get back into painting again after a long hiatus, and thought I'd share some of the results here as I go, partly to keep me motivated to keep going! Inspired by the recent World Eaters codex, I've been returning to one of my first 40k loves, the XIIth. I did some kitbashing recently with Terminators, Raptors, AoS Blood Warriors, Wrathmongers and the new Berzerker models, which was great fun. The Berzerkers and converted World Eater jump troops are still on the way, but I'm pretty pleased with the entirely melee-focused Red Butcher Termies (still disappointed the codex didn't make those official) and accompanying Forgefiend: I particularly like how the giant Berzerker chainaxe looks with these guys: And this lad models himself after a Bloodthirster, complete with a double-headed Blood Warrior axe and a Wrathmonger flail: I'm no painting master and never have been, but I'm still pretty pleased with how they came out Next up I think I'll turn to that Deff Dread I've got sitting unpainted, done up Deathskull style...
  10. I'm going to put links to any of my tutorials at the start of this thread for easy navigation. Below this will be the original first post. Greenstuff Smoothing Video Greenstuff Smoothing Video 2 Making capes from tissue Changing model colors in Photoshop A better paint stripper than Simple Green. Let's get this going again. Starting off with the 4 Iron Warriors Chaos Lords I'll be trying to complete for Grotsmasha's Captain Conversion Challenge, one for each chaos god. First up, Maesteros, follower of Slaanesh and the path of martial perfection. http://i.imgur.com/v8JToIv.jpg Parts list so far is finecast legs from the beaky Sternguard, Khorne Berzerker torso with the lower beltbuckle area cut away and replaced with a length of plastic tubing to elongate the abdomen, Mark IV Maximus helm from Red Scorpions veteran upgrade pack, and a chaos marine left arm. The crest has been removed from the helm and armor studs added to differentiate it somewhat from the loyalist version. Unlike what the fluff tells us about Chaos Marines, I think they would all be scavenging any loyalists they killed, and there will be parts from all over the various marine kits that I own used in these conversions to reflect that. http://i.imgur.com/dbUXWpA.jpg More GS work on the legs and foot, and I removed the studs from the leg because they looked like crap and replaced them with the same .05 rivets I used on the helm. I like the bigger armor studs anyway. I tried to modify the face plate of the helmet to bulk it up a bit make the eye area look more sinister, but after a few days of looking at it now, I'm not sure if I like it. http://i.imgur.com/WDEpdpQ.jpg Finally getting around to decorating the chest. Small cuts from a strip of plastic half-round for the anchor points of the tubes, which will be covered up later with GS. Hooray for the tube making tool! Also, tip of the hat to Darth Potato for showing me the picture that inspired the chest decorations: http://i.imgur.com/hsDcdWU.jpg Evolution of the polearm he's using: http://i.imgur.com/IMyQpjP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/oBU0K0k.jpg It was originally way too long, so I shortened it up and changed the angle that it sits at, but it might still be a bit too long. Still have no idea what to do for the right arm. Next up is Borgestus, follower of Nurgle, and a few shots of trial poses for him: http://i.imgur.com/kuwvKnw.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/nIJcvRa.jpg I really wanted a two-handed pose, but it's proving to be a lot more difficult than I thought it would be, thanks to the bulkiness of the terminator armor, so it will probably be the second pose or maybe another variation. I've also done a lot of work on building a new torso for this guy, and I'll try to have progress pictures of that posted later today. Parts list as shown is loyalist termie legs (because the chaos termie legs all look HORRIBLE), chaos termie toso, and GK head and arms. As of now, the torso front is from a GK and has been chopped up and modified quite a lot. Last, is Varko, follower of the Blood God. I originally thought of giving him a very still and static pose to contrast the raging fury most Khorne marines are modeled with, but most of the Four are already going to be posed like that, and what can I say? I love action poses. So, going way back to the hallowed antiquity of 40k for the inspiration: http://i.imgur.com/ppc34uB.jpg I've always liked that art for the sense of frenetic motion it imparts, and I think GW tried to capture that feel with their plastic berzerkers and failed miserably. Instead of this, we got marines with ork hands that looked like they're ice skating. My rough sketch of Varko: http://i.imgur.com/E1eNPL9.jpg The right arm has no hand on it because I'm going to have to do a lot of work on it to get the pose I'm wanting, but I stuck it on there to check the overall balance of the figure. My first idea was to give him twin lightning claws, but, I gotta be honest, it's a real pain in the butt trying to get a pose with those things that doesn't look goofy, aside from the Wolverine pose with the hands out to the side, of which there have already been several figures from GW with that pose and I didn't want to replicate it. Instead, he'll be hefting two power axes and my bits order for the second one should be here in a few days. Parts list is loyalist assault legs (because the khorne berzerker ones suck and they've never made a good replacement for chaos), chaos torso that may or may not change, right arm from BA Death Company, left arm from FW Red Scorpion veteran upgrade pack, and head from FW Khorne Berzerker upgrade pack with the Ears of Khorne™ removed, and the axe is from a one of the Chosen in the Dark Vengeance box set. As always, thanks for looking. -BCK
  11. So after quite a long hiatus, I'm back on the B&C. These days I paint and collect a lot of different Space Marines Chapters, so I figured that the Hall of Honour is probably the best place for me to show what I've been up to recently. To begin with, here's a small selection of some of my painted Space Marine models. Death Eagle Veteran, in the classic Rogue Trader colour scheme. Captain of the Golden Halos Chapter. Flesh Eaters Veteran Sergeant. Carcharadons Tactical Marine. Angels Porphyr Intercessor. Red Talons Tactical Marine. Void Scorpion (homebrew Chapter). Howling Griffons Tactical Marine. Brazen Claws Assault Intercessor. Golden Hands Tactical Marine (homebrew Chapter). Blood Drinkers Space Marine (based on Rogue Trader artwork/cover of White Dwarf 137).
  12. Hello Friends, One of my fist Space Wolves Army was the 13th Company from way back in the day. I loved the mixed armor of Space Wolves and CSM, plus it was the first time Wulfen were introduced. I tend to enjoy modeling and painting quite a bit, and it often opens up opportunities to get what I want out of an army on the painting table and battle board. I just bought and began assembling Wulfen for my army and discovered many extra heads, arms, shoulder pads and weapons. So with the new and old bits out of one box of Wulfen I got ten to play with. Here are the conversations and I’ll post updated as I get more of the army done.
  13. Hello all, I've decided to start a thread dedicated to my WIP projects in the hopes it will actively encourage me to be more proactive and to get more minis out of my pile of half-finished shame and onto the table. I'm more of a convertor/painter than I am gamer, mainly due to the lack fo friends who actually play the games, but my current projects revolve around building viable Kill Teams, namely Night Lords and Deathwatch, as well as dabbling in the creation of some INQ28 war bands. I thought I'd start off with one of my conversions I am most proud of: Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn, made from a second hand Warhammer Fantasy Witch Hunter from eBay and a myriad of other bits and pieces. These are the most recent images I have of Eisenhorn and capture the tone I was going for with the mini. I created him after reading Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies and was inspired a lot by the work featured in the first volume of 28 Mag. Below are my initial iterations of the inquisitor, with his original green stuff shoulder pads that have more recently been replaced with a pair of cut to size Cadian shoulder pads. His rune staff was originally a thin piece of metal rod topped with a Tempestus Scions servo-skull, but was eventually swapped out for a re-sized Grey Knights staff.
  14. Greetings all! I recently picked up the new starter set for AT and have managed to get stuck into them during lockdown. I settled on the Legio Nivalis - Ice Giants - what little is known about them is pretty cool (pun not intended), but I like that I have a lot of freedom in making them my own. The Legio so far - all are still WIP. I see them as arctic hunters, displaying kill trophies such as the tusks on the Reaver - who can say what giant beasts its Princeps slew to adorn the God Machine so? and banner markings. I've tried to keep them as monotone as possible so that the little details pop. Speaking of details - I'm trying to push myself on this build. The aim for this one is to look like the gun is charging up for that kill shot. I don't have a name for my Knight Household yet but I do have a colour scheme - I went for as opposite and complimentary as I could from the Titans, and kept the spot colour. I'm also working on a small commission for my local club - Legio Mortis and House Malinax; That's all I have for now - thanks for looking! C&C welcome
  15. I love the Imperial Guard. I love the variety of character between regiments. I love the sheer grit and determination that characterizes their existence. I want to make a hundred Guardsmen and Guardswomen, with each one representing a different regiment. I don't want to make a hundred differently colored Cadians, I want these guys to embody their own cultures, their own histories, their own specialties. So I'm starting off with three WIP Guardsmen (and I have another three regimental examples finished in my Hall of Honor thread here). Without further ado: Attteri Chosen Thakto Rangers Salachar Heavy Infantry So right now I'm at 6/100. I'll keep you guys posted. If anyone has some specific third party conversion pieces that they would like to see used please let me know. These three examples have been made using a mixture of GW, Mad Robot Miniatures, and Victoria Miniatures pieces - I've also used Pig Iron Production pieces on some of my guys in the Hall of Honor thread.
  16. Since the release of the new Space Marine codex and the Raven Guard supplement, I feel like space marines have been given a new lease on life. Right before 8th Edition was announced I had decided to start a true-scale project for a new army, and had settled on the Raptors, as the rules they had from Forge World at the tail end of 7th edition were fun and fluffy; and I had always been drawn to the lore of the chapter as a fun contrast to some of the more outrageous concepts in the setting. Once the images surfaced of the the scale of the Primaris Marines, I realized true-scaling was going to be a lot easier than I thought. I began slowly building the force, but didn't get much beyond putting the models together from Dark Imperium before becoming immensely discouraged with the rules of any Space Marine chapter other than Ultramarines. Fast forward to the Shadowspear box set and now this new codex, and I have purchased my tickets on the hype train. My intention is to build, paint, and play a force of Raptors representing the 5th Battle Company. I'm going to have it hew as closely to the codex disposition of a standard Battle Company as much as is reasonable; six Battleline squads, two Fire Support squads, two Close Support squads, and a command staff of one captain and two lieutenants, along with support staff from the Librarius and the Apothecarion. This will be a very infantry heavy force, to represent the fighting style of the Raptors: long term forward infiltration of heavy equipment as well as crew and support sections that then can support heavy infantry shock assaults, focusing on decapitation strikes and the swift reduction of the command and control capabilities of the enemy forces. The following images showcase the almost completed portions of the force, mostly the Battleline squads and the command section. Also, apologies if this is not the place to be posting this, as I figured my fellow followers of Corax would get the biggest kick out of this progress log! First up is the members of the command staff that I consider finished, except for a few minor touch-ups. Two lieutenants, each usually charged with leading a demi-company, and the Apothecary assigned to the company. I'm still deciding on whether or not he should have company markings to match the rest of the force. Next is the unfinished fellows from the command staff, the Captain and the Librarian. Both still need more paint as well as decals and to have thier bases finished. These three big boys are the first fire support squad, deployed in Centurion armor. They may not look like it, but a lot of conversion work went into these models, both in order to make them taller so that they would still scale well with primaris sized marines, and to have a sleeker, more exoskeleton feel than standard centurions. All the following images are of the battleline squads, 3 in phobos armor deployed as infiltrators, and three in tacticus armor deployed as intercessors. I still need one more infiltrator squad before these are all done, and I am finishing up the third intercessor squad. They just need decals. I've made some good progress, especially considering this has been a few years now, but I still have a ways to go. I'm still finishing up the rest of the Shadowspear box, and I'm hoping that one of the holiday box sets has phobos marines in it. Once I have those parts and an Invictor, I think I'll have all the models that I'll need, and it'll just be time to finish them all. Emperor give me strength!
