Sniper vet

A small side project, one Yukoni sniper veteran. I built him initially as a one-off for a competition, but I think he just became the prototype for what my vets are going to look like...

Behold, a legal army!

The last three members of the D Company Command Squad, the piper and two bodyguards, which means...

HQ and two Troops! Huzzah! Legal army! Fiiiiinally.

Goodbye, my lady.

This weekend I lost my best friend of six years, Emma, so it seems oddly appropriate that I post this now, since she was Dog Company's namesake and mascot.

There's the first half of the Company Command Squad, with, from left to right, the Company Sergeant-Major, the company 2IC (whose name escapes me at the moment), the Company Standard (bearing Emma's likeness and some very bad Latin saying "Bark and Bite"), and a Guardsman. Still to come are the company piper and the two Highlander bodyguards, but and this is the part I could use some suggestions on, I don't know what tartan to paint them in. For the Platoon Command Squads I used the base colour of the platoon, but I'm not sure what to use for the Company Command Squad...

One year later, finally did something

Well, it's been almost exactly a year since my last update, and I finally got around to doing more work on the Yukoni, after a round of intensive spring cleaning made my workspace usable again and got the juices flowing. Not to mention the shaming/nagging from Muskie...

First up, I finished Green Platoon's heavy weps squad, which means I have completed my Troops choices, at least for 1250 points. Two full, massive platoons! Huzzah!

Finally, one of my main stumbling blocks was the Colossi. I couldn't figure out how to do the actually mechanism, so I decided just to "cheat" and build an enclosed cab. It's still pretty rough, but it's my first scratch tank conversion of this scale...

Next, I'm going to paint the Company Command. ONWARDS!

Schtuff...

Blah blah blah overtime blah blah blah Mass Effect 2 blah blah blah excuses...


Pictures!

A WIP Colossus:

Yeah, I know I went a bit overboard with the barrel size, but at least I managed not to but chainsaws on it somewhere... That is just a mockup, and I'm a little unsure of how to proceed. Any suggestions, anyone? Are the Basilisk...gear...things...sufficient or do the mechanisms need more work?

I forgot to get pictures of these guys before basecoating them, but I think the relevant details still show through.


And the Company Command squad.

Also, in non-Yukoni news, I've been working on a kilted Marine for a competition over on the Bolter and Chainsword.

Not dead but napping.

Just a quick update tonight, as I spent most of the day either sleeping or watching Life on Mars (the UK version, naturally) with the wife. Finally got to the end of Series 1...

Anyways, here's a mock-up of what Green Platoon's Gun No.2 is going to look like. I say No.2 because No.1 Gun has the squad NCO and I haven't figured out what that one's going to look like yet.

The loader is not dead, he's napping. He'll have his hands under his head and his helmet tipped over his face, while the gunner is, uh, displaying his opinion of such behaviour through the language of gestures.

Green/Command, let me show you it.

Whee, Green/Command is done. I'm quite pleased with how the tartan on the pipes turned out, but of course the flash washed it out and made it look all pastel-y. Sigh.

Now I'm moving on Green Platoon's Heavy Weapons squad. I decided a short time ago that between the artillery and bajillions of lasguns, I have plenty of anti-infantry firepower, but nothing to hurt high-toughness baddies or transports at range and thus needed to switch the heavy weapons squads to have Autocannons instead of Heavy Bolters. Not wanting to rip apart the existing squad or make new ones, I've tried to come up with a conversion to the heavy bolter body that still looks like an autocannon. I think it works, but I'd love some opinions. It means I'll lose the awesome Vickers MG look, but I'll just have to live with that.
