More Dudes

So I decided to buy a bunch more stuff. A cadian defence force. And some others, as will be revealed here. I decided to go big so that I would have a bunch of bits so that my recent problem with my army of clones would be avoided.

Anyway so first off is a bunch of dudes. It took absolutely ages to scrape off mould lines on these. I don't remember struggling this much when i got that battleforce a few years back. Maybe its a sign of old moulds or something. I got some scions as well and these were an absolute breeze in comparison. But more on that later.

Special weapon dudes
Vox dudes
 I left them attached to bits of sprue I'm going to knock up another batch of bases cos I really want to get a sizeable force on the table and i'm willing to let undercoated types turn up.

Command Types

Done some work on the company and platoon commanders...

Again suffering by looking a bit too similar to each other. However I'm intending to convert up a Creed counts as so the company commander probably wont be seen that often in action.

I quite like the blue detailing on the trim.

Finished up a couple of sergeants. I hate painting skin tones. Also I wish I had built them differently to each other. Guess I got caught up in the moment in the manufacturing line style of building...

I also think that the laspistol arm looks really unnatural.

WIP Standard Bearer

A very much a WIP one this one but I was struck by how deep and golden the trim was on this standard.

Other Things

Ok a bit of honesty here. I write up a load of blogs and then schedule them for publishing on a weekly basis. Over the last couple of weeks (gasp) I have been doing things that arent 40k related.

Went  down the mersey tunnels and saw some pretty awesome machinery...

Went for a walk up a hill and saw some rusted stuff that was pretty cool...

So yeah research. For all that scenery that i'm gonna build. Honest.
