A bit of a change from the 3rd Edition Warhammer with some Rogue Trader stuff.
As I have suggested recently, I have lots and lots of painting to do on a variety of things and still loads of stuff unpainted. The idea of this blog is to get focus for projects and showcase them as I go. However, as I have been chatting to people viewing the blog (5,412 so far, thank you :) ) they have shown an interest to see some of the unpainted or imcomplete sets of miniatures, or already painted stuff.
So whilst I continue to post the current projects as they are painted, here is the first batch of general pictures of 'stuff to do'.
I will be doing better photographs of stuff at a later date, these are just an overview. Thought I would update today as I probably will not get a chance to tomorrow.
If people want to see anything closer up or something else, please let me know.
Sorry if it's a bit of a tease, but here's a few pictures of some of the stuff to come:
The 3rd Eition Warhammer Armies Hobgoblin Mercenary Contingent containing:
1 Commander, 1 Shaman, 1 Contingent Standard, 30 Hobyars, 80 Mourngul Renegades, and 4 handlers with 6 hounds (only need a few more).
This Contingent does'nt include the Hobgoblin Despoilers Regiment of Renown, and is made up from the Citadel C36 Hobgoblins, and Chronicle Minatures N12 Hobgoblins (and 2 Ral Partha Warhound creatures).
Repaint us, they shout!
30 Slaaneshi Demonettes ready for painting.
A converted Deamon Prince, I made from a Bloodthirster and a spare Dragon Head from a Dwarf Slayer set; and of course a Keeper of Secrets.
24 Mounts of Slaanesh. I am not sure what to do with these. I have enough 40k Chaos riders, but intend putting some of those on jetbikes. Also, I never saw the point of cavalry in Rogue Trader (the current edition is different, Imperial Guard Rough Riders are useful). I might send 12 to the future, and keep the other 12 with chaos knights on them.
Bloodbowl mutant star player now to be used as a chaos Spawn. On the right my only Slaaneshi Fiend :(
Two independent deamons:
C34 'Deamon' on the left, and 'Pit Fiend' on the right.
Lieutenant Commander of the Emperor's Children, flanked by two Chaos Dreadnoughts.
Some of the Tratior Legion Detachment.
The three columns right to left are made up of Tactical Squads. The rest are awaiting allocation (although there is a Devastator Squard there too!) . I need to paint up more of the heavy weapons.
Death to the False Emperor :)
(as per Slaves to Darkness, that's why there's six of them).
Legionaries, one with flamer, two with bolters.
Sergeant with powefist, and two legionaries with bolter. The one in the middle is a Nurgle Marine, but I like him painted like this.
Two more bolter armed legionaries, and sergeant with claw (counts as a powerfist).
Three legionaries with bolters.
I am not sure whether I am happy with the shade of purple, might give the whole army a darker purple wash.
More to do.
I was considering spliting the collection into two and doing a World Eater Detachment. I am in two minds, as I do like the idea of several hundred Emperor's Children fighting Horus Heresy battles.
Funny, as I stared with the Chaos Marines in 1988, I feel a little one of those 'Veterans of the Long War' they mention in the current Choas Codex LOL.
Three original Land Raiders. Need finishing as only have the basecoat done.
Squadron of three of the older style 1980's Predators.
Chaos Marine bits box.
In there somewhere are 40 Chaos Terminators, dozen or so old jetpacks, and some jetbikes.
Needs sorting out!
As do the Squats, but I'll leave them for a later date.
But the rogue Trader Space Orks will probably be photgraphed for the end of the week....
.....coming soon, fresh from the Rynn's World Tour:
Luggub's Drop Legion
(as featured in the 1988 'The Book of the Astronomican').
But the Praetorians will have to wait, probably for their own Blog.
Right, I'm off to paint Dark Elves :)
