Finishing off this commission with Commander Shadowsun and a Cadre Fireblade.

Shadowsun follows the army colour scheme, activating her camouflage. The Fireblade looks very leader-like.

These are the rest of the drones in the commission. A couple drones for the Ghostkeel, a couple shield drones for Commander Shadowsun, and a bunch of other mostly shield drones. All that’s left is Commander Shadowsun and a Fireblade.

Brand new to me, Fire Warrior Breachers. A 9-man unit and a couple Hammerhead turrets. I’m almost done a trio of Rail Rifle Pathfinders, then I might do the Fireblade or Commander Shadowsun.

The first two Stealthsuits complete. The camo is white, grey, and blue for the snow. The actual armour is a purple/grey scheme with some bits picked out in blue or red for the reference to the og shiny armour colours. I’d like to think this alternate armour is like a special forces colour scheme.

Also, as per the natural order, I have both the active camo and armour colours showing on the model. Like they’re in the middle of turn their stealth on.

Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.

Starting off this army expansion with a few different units. A squad of Fire Warriors with a couple support turrets, Sniper drones, and some weapons.

Like last time, all the purple and blue sections of the scheme have been gone over with a gloss coat. The contrast between the shiny and matte areas helps to make the different materials pop.

More minis from Kromlech! From their Orc Mecha-armour line. The variants consist of buzzsaws, drills, claws, and big shootas. I separated the squads by doing different coloured wiring. I wanted to do different coloured armoured plates, but determined it’d be too hard to see the difference when I added the weathering.

Almost done!

Finally, the little humies get part of a battletome, and a cool one too! Now that I have access to a laser cutter, I thought it was high time to rebase my old Empire army. I designed a cobblestone texture and had it engraved onto MDF, then cut into different sizes.

Slowly but surely, there will be many more rebased. Maybe I’ll even get new minis for this army. I have been eyeing Demigryphs since they first came out.

Since I am a puritan, all my units will be human. I don’t want elves or dwarfs. My old engineers will be the new Cogsmiths. Maybe my Warpriests will be my Runelords if I want a Greywater Fastness army.

A couple stragglers I happened to remember. Dwarf Lord is done as a center-piece level. It’s still in pewter and the classic pose that makes this model great looking. I wanted to make the squig a different colour than the rest, so it is purple.
