I am notorious for never finishing anything. It isn't strictly true, but I am a hobby magpie; too much in love with too many things and not enough time, or commitment, to complete a single project. So here I'll post some of my stuff which most approaches completion. I may show works in progress too, but I think it'll mostly be finished models.

Here are the finished models for my Bushido Ito Clan. From left to right: Temple Bushi, Satoshi, Chiyo, Naoko, Itsunagi and Kazuhiko. I'll probably take some individual photos when I have more time.

Finally got around to painting the bolters on these guys. First four heresy-era complete!

Shoulder pads are slightly different to heresy-era canon and the tactical symbol is too. I don't care though :P

The guys who frequent the 30k forums have already seen these, but I figured I would post them here too.

I didn't think all the fancy trim and chunky, reinforced armour plates worked for Raven Guard terminators. So, rather than buy some Tartaros pattern, I did some scraping...

I like it,but thought he looked a little plain so sculpted these & cast some copies:

It may take some time for me to get this army even to 1000pts!

I have assembled 10 tac marines, 5 cataphractii, 10 assault marines, 5 heavy support with missile launchers and a centurion/praetor.

Finally found some time to finish up the Cataphractii. Not sure what to do about bases. Thinking of getting one of these blocks for creating lots of bases easily. Probably the "imperial" one and go with the cracked earth look. Then I'll weather the feet & ankles of my marines to match.

So this is what I have finished so far:

Yeah, going to take a while...

I think there is plenty of time before the next big apocalypse game to get an army done

I've painted a Bushido model, but the light is too bad for a nice photo.

In the meantime, I've been experimenting with colour schemes for my UCM:

Going with the nearest colours, though the pattern will be somewhat different. I also brushed these on but will be airbrushing when I do it for real. Weathering was largely accidental due to impatience and lack of care, but I will likely figure a way of bringing it across to the army scheme.

Paints, in order of application, are:

  1. Vallejo Model Air - 71.119 - White Grey
  2. Vallejo Model Air - 71.005 - Intermediate Blue
  3. Vallejo Model Air - 71.051 - Barley Grey

Finished off the tactical squad to its minimum size of 10:

...and added a centurion who will accompany the assault squad, who are next on the bench:

Slick :)

Very crisp. The black really pops with the white logo and you have just enough colour to make the model look nice.

More often than anyone would think, but I forget to post photos!
