Rorke's Drift Playset

I have wanted this item for many years.  It is from Warlord Games in their Black Powder series. It was discontinued but now it looks like it is back in stock as a made to order item.  I think I know what I am asking for as a birthday gift.  I will have my whole family pitch in if that is what it takes. I think it would be an awesome way to display my army and give me motivation to complete it.

New Conversions and Army Pic

Hello everyone!! It has been a super long time since I posted.  The Army has sat for a while and I haven't had a game in nearly two years.  But like every good hobby, 40K has come back full circle and I am wanting to work on my Praetorians again.  Just to get the juices flowing I started with a few conversions. 

The first is my final decision for Plasma Gunner which I never posted after I reached out for opinions.  Unfortunately there are no WIP pics but you should be able to figure it out from the primed model.  It's base is a flamer model.  I trimmed the nozzel and just above the left hand, keeping the grip.  Then I trimmed a plasma pistol and it slotted in place very nicely. 
Plasma Gunner converted from Flamer.  It is a really good fit and should look nice painted up.

Rear view.  These are part of my Veteran Squads and have backpacks from Victoria Lamb.
Next are my snipers.  This was a super easy conversion.  I just snipped the barrel off the gun in front of the left hand and just below the sight.  I snipped a ten-penny nail to a lenght I thought was aesthetically pleasing and just glued it on.  It is a little fragile but I am hoping after painting and varnishing it will hold pretty well.
I like that the head of the nail gives it a muzzle. 
These will be painted in the same green with red trim as my Ratling Snipers

The last conversions are some Regimental Standard Bearers.  The traditional standard bearer is good and he will be carry the Emperor's Colors, but his pose is too static and I didn't want a bunch of them in my army.  I used the following figures because they were more dynamic.  For the model on the right I clipped the right hands of the old standard bearer and the new model and just glued it on.  For the one on the left I just trimmed the top and bottom off the banner and glued it to the fist of the model.  These will be my "Company Standard" Bearers.
Company Standard Bearers

The enemy will never see them from this angle!
And last but not least is a photo of my new army.  They say go big or go home.  This is a 2000 point all infantry army.  As you can see only about 1/3 of it is painted.  It is a little bit of a daunting task, but I think it will look awesome when complete.  Feel free to give comments and suggestions.  Here's to new blogs.... Cheers.
Some of the Emperor's Finest Footsloggers!!

Plasma Conversion

I know this blog does not get as much traffic as in previous years but I am hoping for a little help.
I am working on new Plasmagun conversions as I don't have any more meltagun models.  Here are 3 potential poses.  They are just test models and I will fill some of the gaps with green stuff, etc.  I am wondering what your opinions are.  I am personally partial to the pose on the left.  However, the pose on the right looks more like the pose of the meltagun model. Let me know what you think so I can start cranking them out.

COL Straken Conversion

Here is a conversion I did for my COL Straken.  It was actually very simple.  It utilized the Praetorian Lieutenant, a space marine plasma pistol, and the old Straken model.  Here are the original models before any work was done.

 Next I cut the arm off of the Lieutenant right at the epaulet. I also removed the bolt pistol which surprisingly left the holster details.  I trimmed the hand from the plasma pistol and glued it on.  It was a good fit.

Finally, I cut the Straken model's shotgun arm just below the elbow.  I actually started above the elbow but found that it was too much.  I slowly started removing metal until I found the right fit.  Here is a front and back view of the final model.


I think it is a convincing substitute and can't wait to get it painted up.

Updated Paint Progress

As promised, here is my latest painting status. Not too much progress but I got a lot of squads primed.

I also converted up a COL Straken and a SGT Harker.  I will post some pics of them once I upload the photos.

Medic Color Scheme

I will be using this model as the primary medic in my Command Squad:

I will use other Mordians if I have multiple Command Squads.

The only good visual of Medical Corps uniforms is this:

Mostly dark blue with red trim. I don't want these being confused with my Artillery Units so I don't want them to have just red trim.

Here are my proposed color schemes:


I am kind of partial to the black cuffs and trim but I don't know if it will really show on the model. Let me know what you think,
