SoTR Germans and mechs plus Warhammer Undead

Evening readers, its that time again where I ramble on about stuff and post up some pics :P

first up here are 3 SoTR Germans i just finished painting:Had a small order from wayland games turn up the other day, contained this awesome model:

The SoTR German Wolverine light mech, I love this model just a really nice looking kit, shall be painting it up soon :)

In the same order I also got the soviet sniper Special character Nika, who I have converted into a German character:

Next up is some fantasy stuff I've been working on, with the new edition out its has got me interested again so I decided to carry on with the small vampire counts force I started a year back. I was tempted to do Skaven with them being in the new starter set and all but decided to stick with the undead for the reason of them allowing me to use up random models i have aquired over the years plus they allow for a lot of conversions. :)

so here is the start of my grave guard, found a box of chaos warriors I brought when they were first released that had been sitting around for ages so decided to put them to use:
next up are the 2 characters for the force so far:

This guy will sit in the block of Grave guard the rough back story I have for him is that he was the chieftain of the chaos warriors that became the grave guard, be was basically turned into a vampire by the general (of my eventual army :P) for putting up a good fight. His former warband was then raised from the dead to serve as his body guard.

Hes based around a chaos marauder who has had his height increased with some plasticard spacers.

To go with him I have also brought this Gamezone vampire countess:

shes a very nice model shall be painting her up soon too :)

And thats it for today, as ever any comments and suggestions are more than welcome

Sons of Sek Officer

Evening readers, since my first post on here a few days back when I showed the Sons of Sek I had made at the beginning of the year the call of chaos has been nagging me. So what better way to silence it than to dust off the Sons and carry on with them :D
so the past few days I've been working on an officer for the Platoon command squad:

so I present Grath Damogaur the commander of the only platoon of the eventual army(the rest will be veteran squads). And why name him Damogaur I hear you cry seen as its a blood pact rank. Well in the "blood pact" novel they mention that the Sons of Sek copied the rank system of the blood pact so I just pinched the idea

With his actual equipment I decided to give him a chainsword for fluff reasons, as in the gaunts ghosts novels chainswords are pretty rare with only officers really having them. The plasma pistol was added to make him actually useful in game so will be justified as a trophy taken from an imperial officer or commissar he's killed.

The model is based around a cut down catachan, with a flagellent head, the pointing arm is from the empire militia kit

Let me know what you think :)

Take cover...snipers

Evening readers, time for a quick update from me, just finished these guys:

2 SoTR German snipers, they are great models probably some of my favourites of the whole SoTR range. Gone with a camo pattern of my own design though you can see the influences of pea dot and oak leaf in it, I figured seen as the war is supposed to have gone on past 1945 then there might be some newer camo patterns, plus it kept it nice and simple to paint :P

Anyway back to the xbox, picked up Crackdown 2 the other day and it is most awesome nothing quite as addictive as collecting agility orbs :P

Quite excited now, just found that the bolt action miniatures plastic germans are up for pre-order :D

possibilities for making weird world war 2 stuff from these is great, leave them as they are and you have standard army who don't have any of the fancy new equipment yet, sculpt on armour to make them look more advanced or hack them up and you have nazi zombies :D

And the Conquest begins.....

Hello folks of the interwebz and blogging community, I have finally caved in to the constant nagging of both Mister Feral and Foot_of _adhesive_tape and decided to start a blog.............happy now guys :P

Some of you might know me as the same username from the Ammo Bunker (where I am most active) as well as other sites I post on such as the Secrets of the Third Reich forum. I always have a stupid amount of projects on the go so this will be a nice place to post a random mix of stuff I'm working on.
So what better way of starting this blog than posting up a mix of stuff i have worke don both past a present :)

And I shall start with my Sons of Sek, after being inspired by the Gaunts Ghosts novels and the armies of people such as Dave Taylor and Foot I was orginally going to do some Blood Pact. But Foot suggested me doing the Sons as he hadn't seen anyone do them and they are generally more mysterious, so earlier in the year I did a squad of them:

Here is the inspiration for the troopers, a picture from the Sabbat Worlds Crusade Art book

And the GS work of a random trooper

The first 10 finished:

The main problem with the Sons of Sek is the amount of time it takes to convert each trooper, I have a 2nd squad of them all but done conversion wise and have stock piled enough IG parts via trades and such to do a small army of them. Its just if i can face doing them :P

Next up are some models for my current favourite setting: SoTR/WWW2, this setting has grown on me loads as it covers my interest in historical and sci-fi, give plenty of scope for conversions too :)

A Nazi Sorcerer:

A Nazi Super soldier, converted from the brilliant hasslefree minature "mutant Joe"

I shall call that it now for my opening post, I have a lot of other stuff in the works including: Vampire counts force for Warhammer Fantasy, first few Characters for my Zombie apocalypse stuff and adding some bits and pieces to my FoW SS panzergrenadier force :)

Thanks for looking
