It's been quite some time since my last post, what with other things inconsiderately getting in the way of my hobby time it's not been a very productive month! Nonetheless rest assured things are on the horizon and with any luck I will soon be churning out more Praetorian goodness!
First things first, the battle report. As you may remember if you read my previous posts my guardsmen took part in an epic apocalypse battle against the forces earlier this month. The report is still WIP and will certainly be worth the wait, it is certainly the most comprehensive battle rep in terms of photos, back ground stories, commentary and of course photos. Hopefully it'll be a nice surprise when I do get round to posting it!
Another thing to watch out for will be a review of some of Col. Gravis' lovely miniatures. I've managed to get my hands on some of his latest creations and as soon as I have had a chance to get my paint brushes out I will let you all know my thoughts! Also should you wish to check out his store just click on the curious constructs banner on the left hand side of the page, it's well worth a visit!
Right on to my latest creations...
The plan was always to make some crew for my Macharius Vanquisher, it's pretty much the centrepiece of the army now and needed a suitably characterful Tank Commander surveying the scene from the turret. Here is what I created...
Here is the Commander and another crewmen with the first lick of paint on. The colour is simply Tallarn Flesh, Reikland fleshwash, then Tallarn Flesh with progressively more bleached bone added until pure bleached bone for the final highlight (4 layers in total on these guys).
Here is a photo of my WIP AT heavy weapons, they will be painted like normal guardsmen with red trim so that I can switch them in and out of squads if needed. The heavy weapons are the old steel legion lascannons as what with my army being mechanised infantry is important for them to be mobile!
There are a few other bits and pieces that are in the pipeline, below you can see what else I'm working on. There is also a Hydra and Bombard which have been assembled and need a coat of spray paint before I get started on them.
