I've been building up some reinforcements for the Imperial Guard Armored Company this past week. I got a bunch of the low hanging fruit (no conversions) as well as a few of the simple conversions built.

Image

The Medusae, Griffons and Hellhounds fell into the <q>simple conversions</q> category. The Medusa is just an AT Basilisk gun chopped short, the Griffon an SM/TL basilisk gun chopped short, and the Hellhound some plasticard tanks with SM/TL Hellhound turret.

I think I lost one of the last two weeks, either that or I wasn't very productive. I've been filing and cutting away to convert the last of my Russes. Getting the sponsons off the hull is an utter pain so I think they'll be coming down to the maker space with me to have a meeting with the bandsaw and belt sander.

The Executioner turrets are done, I used an old 40k 2e Chaos Plasma Pistol for the gun. It fits pretty good for the era, I think.

Image

The Conquerors turrets are two bits of plasticard and the Stormbolter taken off of the plastic Colossus Robot from the Imperial Guard sprue. Two of the tanks have the plates I'm using to cover the sponson locations, just more plasticard.

Thanks guys.

I started painting up a few more units for Historicon this November, they're based up and have their main colors blocked out and washed.

I like how you used MK 1 Hydra weapons.

Looking great, Dave. I need a lot of these for the MiniWars database. Care to take a few single model shots when they're done?

Thanks elsmore. Ya, let me know what you need and I'll take some shots for you.

I finished up the Epic Salmanader Command, Hydra and Vanquishers this week.

Years ago I won some lot that had a load of old decal sheets with heraldy symbols on them. I was hoping to use bull heads but I didn't have enough for all my command vehicles and ended up going with a rampant lion instead. There's also some German vehicle numbers in there from GHQ, so I'm wondering if I should spend the time numbering my Russes now.

Cheers Dave. Clean, single model views of the unconverted vehicles would be great. Especially Russ variants and Chimera. For example, I currently only have images of Forge World and E40k Chimera:

Heh, everything I've painted for the IG has been a conversion.
