Hobby wise I have been tying up loose ends more than anything. I recently traded some Space Marine Centurions I had won for a squadron of three unwanted Valkyries, so I was able to crank up the airbrush and repaint them to match my Vendetta squadron. I also managed to finish off the Vengeance weapons batteries and Icarus lascannon that have been on my painting desk for quite a while. Pics to follow in future posts!
I have also finished off my second infantry platoon for 5th Company. I painted up a few special weapons squads, one with sniper rifles and another with demolition charges. I really like how cheap you can get a squad of 6 Imperial Guardsmen with 3 sniper rifles. They are a great little objective secured unit, that is cheap and disposable, perfect to leave on an objective.
I used a mix of sniper models. Scope from The Last Chancers, a Catachan sniper and the new (well, to me anyway) plastic sniper from the cadian command sprue. The rest of the squad I used some plastic scout heads and heavy weapons sprue accessories to complete the spotter type look.
The demo squad is very expensive points wise, very suicidal, but a whole heap of fun! I usually take one from this squad and mix it with a flamer Special weapons squad for a bit of added punch.
Thats all for now. I have a small stock pile of hobby projects to present here, so more to follow soon!
