Group shots. As always, I love the forgeworld models. Lots of detail and cool looking. I have high hopes for Shapeways and the minis they produce. Good detail on the 3d prints.

The Domitar was the highlight for sure. Successfully making conversions like that always makes me feel good.

The Domitar is ready to smash more Orks. Not much left of the one underfoot after the pew-pew and the squish-squish.

I have finished my first squad of guardsmen. These will be veteran Guardsmen riding in a valkyrie or chimera, ready to spew fiery inconvenience onto the Emperor’s enemies. I think they look fantastic, with the custom bases and converted lasguns, they will really look like something new on the battlefield. I also sculpted a little skull on the sergeant’s taser-axe baton, made me happy.

My piece that makes me smile here, is the sergeant. I kitted him with a plasma pistol and a taser-axe baton (CCW), as much as it looks like a power weapon it is not. The story here is that the Adeptus Mechanicus manufactured these taser-axe batons as a gesture of good faith to the Ordos Xenos for giving the go ahead in starting field testing the Anphelion Project research. Because of the near heretical nature of the research, the Ordos Xenos commissioned a whole regiment of Imperial Guard to help guard the captive Tyranids and to keep an eye on the Magos.

The taser-axe batons come with a backpack power supply that feeds tens of thousands of volts into the taser at the top of the baton. These are just made to stun the smaller creatures of the Tyranids to research for later (one needs the overcharged taser to make sure a hormagaunt is unconscious, even within synapse), and given to each of the sergeants of the Imperial Guard who are now representatives of both the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Ordos Xenos. The axe is used for killing failed experiments or other utility needs in the field.

This first squad is transported around in some vehicle and are tasked with flushing out prospective Tyranid subjects and burning corpses from field testing.
