Sisters ( of Battle) and Magnets


First experiment with magnets. 2 inside the hull of the rhino and two glued to the arms of the bulldozer blade. Magnets from ebay!

The bulldozer blade that comes with the Sister's tanks is so weedy that I decided to attach a spare IG blade using the magnets. Here is the rhino all together.

It is still a work in progress. Exterior paint job to finish and the interior to start.



Here it is with an immolator completed previously

Demolisher Progress

Here are the latest photos of the paining progress. There is still a bit to do but so not much.

The Mordian with the meltagun is one of my Inquisitorial retinue that is also in progress.

Steel Legion Meltaguns

Meltaguns are in vogue with the current Imperial Guard Codex and 40k rules. The Steel Legion range of models special weapons - only in collectors on the GW site is limited to plasma guns and grenade launchers. I wanted a meltagun for my command HQ. Here is the conversion. First I used a sergeant body. The one with the detachable laspistol arm and the chain sword. The chain sword arm was amputated just above the elbo.

Next the melta gun was constructed and then 2 composite arms from the Warhammer militia bits. Gaps wer filled with green stuff. All the composite bits were pinned together for strength. The model needs a bit more trimming and tweaking. The pose is not comfortable but is acceptable, I think. But not now. The mini has had a rework here : meltaguns v 2

Penal Legion and Demolisher

A new project - some penal legionnaries from the bits box. Mainly Cadian, with some transplanted boots and heads from the Warhammer Militia. Heads mainly trimmed to be bald as the codex informs us the penal legionnairies are shaved bald as well as having explosive collars or torcs. The figures still need some work including green stuffing collars before painting bald heads with tattoos and faded uniforms.

Painting progresses with the Demolisher as well : -


Mud washes are on, highlighting and dry brushing dust to follow
