Time for a change

Random pic to kick things off, just some alli and plastic tube and a bit o wire underneath to exstend the tallerns gun. Always thought they should have had longer lasguns as standard but thats just my opinion so had a crack at it, seems to have worked ok. On to other news:

Ye olde blog is having a face lift which will hopefully be better than Colonel Gaddaffis melty face.

So if things look a bit random or totally wrong please leave a comment, i've had this blog about 2 years now and only just found the stats page. It's got a graph thingy and everything. But it does go to show how much i've NOT played around with the blog tools.

I'll attempt to keep updates coming of my current projects whilst i fiddel with things but as i've no plan of action concerning the redisign it could go any which way.

As i'm on an IG and Marines kick at the moment i may go all 40k with the blog but i do still love my old Blitzspear model header by my friend Phil.
More at the weekend unless real life TM sticks it's nose in and disrupts my plans.

Traitor converts to loyalist side

Pretty simple to remove the chaos iconography from this guy whilst keeping the cool bandoleer slung across his chest.
Below you can see him in his original state with the pointy arrows on his leg and chest. I've also filed down the ridge across his eyes and filled a few hollows to smooth out his helmet.

I'll post later with more pics of this build as i'm cracking on with it and the PC is behaving oddly so may be ofline for a few days if it goes bang. It's just my wifes knac for tinkering with all things tec that has kept it going lol just dont tell the cog boys.
When you see the next pics you will probably guess what i've planned for this guy.

What i scored at Crewe

Got 4 metal and 4 plastic minis for a tenner including this chaos traitor marine, anyone remember what Legion he was ment for tho it dosn't matter as he's seen the light and is on his way to becoming a loyalist.
Also got this KVII, again for a tenner. I'm planning to build it up as local PDF armour to accompany some converted PDF troopers i'm planning for my inq warband.

Speaking of which here's another warm body to go along with my small but growing warband.

And finally all the minis i picked up at Crewe, the tec marine was £1.50 and the trator a quid. the plastics were about 75p each.

More soon on the trator marines conversion to a loyalist.

Heres the pics from the Crewe Model show last Sunday above is the first test build in Europe of the Mk VII Viper from Mobius. A lot of interest was generated by this model on our stand. Thanks to Frank from Mobius for letting Ian (jargonking) build this gorgeous star fighter for our display.
And here's the big lady herself Excalibur built by Alun our illustriouse leader for the show.

And this is what it was all for, getting 11 modellers from all over the UK and one from the US (hi Jay) to build a Viper MkII and it's hanger bay and bring it all together for a mega display.

You can find the build threads for this project on the SFM:uk forum for more detailed shots of the individual Vipers coming together.

Best shot ever :)
