Cheers :)

The photo is not the best because it was underneath my painting light, at night... not ideal. I just wanted to get a pic :) .

When the platoon is complete, I'll get better pictures of everything :) .

I use a camera (rather than a phone) so there is no excuse ;) .

I've struggled to get any hobby done recently... but I managed to get out on my bike, so it hasn't been all bad. Since the fly-screen has been added, my bike looks the business :) :

It's been a while but this project doesn't disappear... it just keeps changing (as is usually the case)... especially when some new miniatures turn up :) . This is Big Olaf:



He's not been officially attached to the army yet... but there are certainly stirrings in the warp (EBay) and this may well end up as a very individual character model, with a particularly loyal body guard :) .

The Dwarf is from here:

Big Olaf has a friend, you know... it's a Bulgryn bodyguard!



He started life as this:



and is quite big:





I got him from here:

Big Olaf now has a friend...



Snorri the Giant.

Snorri glared across the field and saw the warboss, bold,
And as he glared, his anger rose and then his blood ran cold.
He knew the Warboss must be stopped, before he reached the gate,
So his ancestors infused with him and filled his heart with hate.

He leapt from off the parapet, with axes in both hands,
And as he charged the Warboss, he was joined by allied bands.
The sound of clashing steel rang out, when the enemies first met,
And in the guild's librarium, began the bravest story yet.

Snorri fought the mighty Ork, with fury rarely seen.
His bravery, the kind of which, had rarely ever been.
He brought the monster to the ground, and cleaved off his raging head.
And he stood upon the Warboss corpse as it lay there, clearly dead.

Alas his triumph was short lived, as Orks are hardy foes.
And though its head was clearly gone, it's axe, it slowly rose.
And with a final death strike, the blade met Snorri's head.
And Snorri dropped down on the field, the Squat was surely dead.

Snorri's lifeless body was, removed from off the field.
But there was the slightest heartbeat, and the hope he could be healed.
All the guilds around the lands were called and asked for aid,
But the best of all the medicae, failed and were dismayed.

Poor Snorri was alive in mind, but his body was a shell.
His arms and legs were useless, he felt he was in hell.
But a Squat called Jorgen Bursmith, had an idea in mind.
And he built some special armour that would leave his woes behind.

Now Snorri, he could fight again and he made sure that he would,
And his fame was too important, so his guild ensured he could.
But his size was far too great now and he needed to be seen,
So the guild made him a warden and he was sent to guard the Queen.

In time, the legend of the Squat, in massive armour spread...
Of the cybernetic warrior, who refused to lay down dead.
His name "Snorri the Giant", with shield and gun in hand,
Who defends the royal family, the Guild and all the land.

A great character.

The Commander looks splendid!

Sweet Jupiter - what kind of gun is THAT on the tank!? Did they steal a quake cannon off a Banesword or a volcano cannon off a Shadowsword!? I think I'd want to keep my Knights and Titans away from that!

OR - is that the whole point!? Is it just a regular Battle cannon with some extra piping welded on to LOOK like bigger gun to make opponents steer clear or it - like Oddballs tank in Kelly's Heroes - complete with a giant speaker on the side of the turret to make frightening battle noises!
