Re: Ninja-star slingin' panzees (More seer'ed Scorpions)
« Reply #30 on: May 07, 2016, 03:06:03 PM »
I finished up another six scorpions, allowing me to field two squads if needed (I was planning on enough minis for one squad of each Aspect but in some cases won several auctions with bits and pieces of minis, so I ended up with twelve).

First up...the auctions:



Then the reclamation.


Altogether now!


And a Farseer for my force, so I can actually put the force on the table now.  Love the miniature, not overly enthused with the paintjob, but it will work for me.  The hands were painted a light blue/green...which dried to a grey(?).

And some more guardians (forcing myself to do as many as I can, the goal is three squads of ten eventually) and my first squad of Fire Dragons.  No "before" pictures this time as they merely arrived with bad primer or clean.

Cracking work  8) 8)

I think the thinner bases really work well  :)

cheers

Thanks guys.  I'm pretty happy with the overall progress...even if some of the paint jobs don't blow my skirt up.  I just received my first vehicles in the mail and won some Warp Spider auctions finally!  Lots more to do...and miles to go... lol

Lovely crisp and clean paintjobs.
You have really brought the best out of those models.
I second the point on the bases too, they do look much better.

I've never taken to slottabases...so I knew when I started it'd be changing them over.  The issue will be figuring out some of the more dynamic models...may need flying bases or some invention for my Swooping Hawks.  Man, the new War Walkers are a mess...I'll have to change them! :?

Not me; I prefer not being 'into 40K', so I must hate any that looks that good.  ;)

Very nice. Elbows, I look forward to your lovely eldar giving their souls to Slaanesh when they die on the battlefield :D. Hopefully the game goes well this week.

Any word on that?  I've read through Clash on the Fringe and it looks okay, I'm also fine with running my 2nd ed. mod as it stands now.

Well, here are the results of a struggle today.  Not overly happy with the results, but I shall continue to cope.  Modified two war walkers to more resemble 2nd edition models, ended up gluing one of the wing armour pieces on wrong, so I ended up doing all of them wrong!  Dipped the driver and white walker pieces only to completely spoil them.  Ended up stripping and re-doing them.  As long as the weak ball-joint feet stay put they should be stable enough.

Really not a fan of these kits.  Didn't realize they were this chunky/mediocre.  I'm rethinking my decision to not pick up some older editions instead.

Nice conversions of the new warwalkers, but the old ones are still nice ;)

Really like this project. You need some harlequins now ;)

@ELBOWS - I agree with you... the older version of the walker was much better (the one with the pilot who has his legs dangling, rather than the later one with the seat). The new ones just don't look nearly as agile.

Mind you, yours are suitably well painted for your project to get away with it :D! (have you shaded the flutes on the end of the plasma cannon?).
