It looks like the butterfly syndrome might be kicking in again. After sorting through the office this evening I found various parts of 40k projects which I never properly got motivated with. I also found loads of cool Imperial Guard bits. This got me thinking, which is a dangerous thing indeed. I'm now thinking of putting together a small 40k force based around an alliance of Space Marines and Imperial Guard. In fact I'm thinking of really really going to town and putting together real show stopper of a force. No holds barred.... Yes that's right the Crimson Shadows and the Nineveh 'Lucky 42nd' are making a comeback. There will be scratchbuilds, conversions and kitbashes across the whole army, all on scenic bases too. Who knows maybe I'll have a go at a Deamon this year ;-)
After seeing some pretty impressive scratchbuild pieces going around just lately its made me want to drag out my unfinished projects.
After I entered Golden Daemon in 2008 I vowed to build something more impressive and get the daemon I narrowly missed out on. This heavy chopper was the result of that. As is always the case however real life got in the way and this little baby has been languishing in the cupboard ever since.
I designed this with the intention of being an early pattern of a Vulture/Valkyrie type thing hence the similarity in looks. It is however completely scratchbuilt. I've got the cockpits and the base somewhere and will drag them out later on.
I guess the next thing is try and actually finish the beast. Oh and remember its name!!!
Would love to know what anyone things.
I'm currently getting rid of a lot of my Games Workshop stuff to make way for the paraphernalia associated with exhibiting at comic conventions this year. As such below is a list of all the Imperial Guard pieces for sale at the moment. They're all as seen in varying degrees of completion, not that matters if you're painting them up yourself.Not put prices on as they're all negotiable, depending on location how much you want etc.
If anything interests you please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @elblondino.
Anyway, I'll leave you to peruse.
