Imperial Guard Heavy Troopers
Afternoon all! After last week's Necromunda Superpost I've been getting back into the thick of painting; there are about four simultaneous projects on the go at the moment. But while I was down in the Bunker (our subterranean wargaming lair), I found these guys in a box I built ages ago for my Human Rebels. Thought it was about time they saw the light of day again.
They're supposed to be replacements for Ogryns, and it all started when I found three sets of Terminator legs glued onto bases. I did a bit of 'dry' tinkering and thought that Tactical Marine torsos fitted quite well, along with some Guard arms. The 'fluff' such that it is, is that these are looted sets of armour (yes, I know that's not how SM armour works, but never let the vanilla fluff get in the way of a good conversion!).
May go back and give these chaps a lick of paint, touching them up and adding a few details here and there. But mainly this was a bit of a trip down memory lane.
In other news, I dug out this old conversion from many many months back - just a tinker with an ACW cavalryman and a bit of ham-fisted early green-stuffing. But it's so nice to dig this out after all this time, I may just give him a lick of paint anyway!
I'm ploughing on with further projects now, mainly this small horde of 20mm Brits for a mate. Chipping away at them, nine at a time. Nine down, about 70-odd to go. Wish me luck! Main focus remains the WW1 Russians I mentioned before, expect a couple of posts on them in the next few days.
Until then, have fun and happy gaming all!
