Hello, I'm posting this whilst still away, however, here is my latest offering, the completed Assault Centurion Squad - these three should make short work of most foes in Close Combat, as long as they don't come up against the other Devastator Grav Centurions on the way!
This Marine is wading into battle with his arms swinging wildly, I used the pointing arm without the pointy finger.
This Marine must be locked in battle, he is rather static, but the poses the box set offer you are quite limited.
Here's the entire Squad wading into the fray, I do love the Sergeant's poise, arms low and out to the sides beckoning his foe...
And just a bit of a 360 degree look at all the detailing these wonderful miniatures have, they have grown on me, still a little telly-tubby marines but I like them.
And a quick top down view, just to show the very bulky nature of these guys!
And finally, a shot of all the Centurions together - I won't be painting many more of these in a hurry, they take ages to do!
Hello good readers, thanks for dropping in. Here is my latest addition to the ever growing Relictors Battle Company, some new Assault Centurions! Here is the Sergeant, the rest of the squad are following nicely.
Now these are chunky mofo's. Cetrainly a labour of love, I wouldn't want to paint anymore of these, they do take up some time, at one point I think I had over 50 components in the factory production line and that was with part built assemblies.
Every component has details and you need to part paint the innards before gluing together, a partlybuilt body with legs and basic arms can be done as one piece, followed by all the support struts, then weapons, cabling, more weapons, codpiece and finally shoulder pauldrons and head. Iused some Maximini skull helmets to emphasise the Relictors feel.
The Sergeant has TL Melta Guns, but the Centurion Marines will have TL Flamers. The Frag Assault Launchers in the chests will ensure they get into battle across terrain in a fit state and if charged may help them survive limiting the number of attacks. And those Siege Drills will make short work of Terminators, Vehicles and most Monstrous Creatures (if survive on Initiative). But I think they'll need a Landraider/StormRaven to get across the field!
Hello Readers, I have done quite well this year so far for terrain in my drive to get decent scenery to battle over, maybe the other Weemen, Lord Halfpenny and 6thDegree will follow suit ;)
Here is the latest offering, a ruined Mechanicum building, I used some leftover sprues of Cities of Death panels to fill the interior space and add realism. Again this building is simply black basecoat, drybrushed Macharius Solar Orange (Jokaero Orange) and Boltgun Metal (Leadbelcher) with a Calthan Brown Base (Mournfang Brown), drybrushed Kommando Khaki (Karak Stone) and Bleached Bone (Ushabti Bone).
A minimal amout of detailing on the Opus Mechanicus and door controls adds interest and focus and spot colour with a few patches of hardy weed.
I have now used up all my Mechanicus type Cities of Death panels but still have the majority of a box of Imperial City to construct. And the other Pegasus Hobbies Gothic Church to do - seen in WIP stage in the background along with the finished Gothic Ruined Church and Sanctum and Rock Outcrop.
For other terrain ideas, please feel free to have a look at the other Weemen posts on TERRAIN. Thanks for dropping in.
Just a little update on my terrain and scenery drive this year, another little piece - a Mechanicum Reactor scatter piece to add some interest and maybe some much needed cover for a hard pressed squad, or to act as an Objective! This was made using up some Cities of Death spare pieces and will accompany a future build as well as the earlier Mechanicum Ruins I did ages ago.
The bulkheads have been painted in the same style as the Manufactorium Ruins by simply undercoating black then heavy drybrushing Macharius Orange followed by Boltgun Metal. This way you can get great looking terrain painted rapidly and join the fight against plain grey plastic scenery!! Bases are optional, mine make the pieces sturdy and can rulewise delineate the 'moves through cover' etc. It is cut from a sheet of 3mm hardwood (fibreboard) and sanded at the edges to give a smooth curve. For more Terrain ideas and to join in the fight against plain grey plastic scenery, see the TERRAIN posts. Thanks for reading.
