Yet more WIP Red Corsairs

Evening readers,

Small update time again, slowly chugging away on the corsairs. Here are the next 2 in their WiP stage:

Idea for these Pair are that they will be sword brothers formerly of the Swords of Surthur chapter(Home brew but I had to get some viking themed stuff in somewhere) that turned their backs on the imperium together.

That is the rough idea for their fluff, I shall refine it when I post them both up when they are painted.

Started converting the 5th marine now who shall likely be a former member of the raptors chapter.

In other hobby news the sedition wars kickstarter is going incredibly well, glad to see them getting the amount of support and I'm now really looking forward to getting the game. Currently contemplating whether to increase my pledge in order to get the new optional character modelClick on the image below for a link to the kickstarter page:

Also I shall be entering the Hasslefree Miniatures sculpting competition that is running from July through to September. You have to use their new female armature as the basis with 3 categories to choose from, I have my plans for this but I shall keep them secret for now ;)

Corsair number 2

Afternoon Readers,

Been a while sinc ethe last update however work has been keeping me busy, however I have found the time to finish painting the second corsair:

Again hes come out rather well and despite the red being mixed separately from the red i used on the champion it seems to match it pretty much perfectly.

The third corsair is nearly finished GS wise, its just the finer details that are making him take longer with corsair number 4 in the early stages of conversion.

In other hobby related news I finally cracked and invested in Studio Mcveys sedition wars boxed game on kickstarter, the amount of stuff you get was just to good a deal to pass up and its always good to support one of the smaller wargaming companies :)

I plan to try and improve my painting so as I can do the models justice when they arrive, which is set for sometime in November. Might even have a crack at making 3D fully modelled versions of the card tiles that come with it too..............but thats for the future ;)
