WON - DER - FUL
Every detail is excellent, the colours and excecution are splendid and really bring the best of those sculpts and the camo pattern is just right when it could have been messy or overdone. I'd really want to see the future squads.
Whoever would complain about this one not being "legal" in terms of army list would spoil the chance to play against a gorgeous army (which should be considered a crime really).

Re: Rogue Trader Space Marines - Howling Griffon Sigmar VI C

Thanks very much for the comments guys, very encouraging.

The squad is only not legal as there are two heavy weapons, should be one special weapon and one heavy, but like I say, this will be sorted with the next batch of guys.

Just made a start on the leader dude last night so hopefully I can crack him out quite quickly

Thanks for the comments Chaps!

here are a few little updates for you....nothing finished yet but it keeps the ball rolling dunnit

wip paint job on the leader guy, not really sure what his role is going to be yet but i like the miniature

Image

Sorry for the blurry Pic below but its just to give you an idea, these are just the base coats, the Grey section will eventually be white with a Griffon on it

Image

Will hopefully be doing a bit of work on this guy later tonight, so fingers crossed it wont be long before I have a finished pic to show you

Re: Rogue Trader Space Marines - Howling Griffon Sigmar VI C

Right, here is the start of another build.

I mentioned earlier that I didn't want any overly elaborate standards or anything like that as my guys are supposed to be soldiers in space rather than Monastic Knights in space. Anyway after a conversation with Warcanvas about what I was going to do for an army standard (they give a bonus to your troops in 2nd edition) I set about looking for some inspiration.

It wasn't long before I spotted the below image while browsing through the 1990 Fantasy Miniatures book

Image

The guy with the Standard perfectly fits my idea of what I would like my standard bearer to look like, so I set about making my own. My version isn't as extensively converted as the guy in the picture as I will not be removing the miniatures existing arm.

I started by Drilling a 1.6mm hole in his hand, trying to get the angle of the hole as close to the pictured version as possible without ruining the existing hand

Image

I then used the Drill bit to cut a pocket into the guys chest where the banner pole could rest, this also allowed me to get closer to the desired angle, the pic below shows the channel that was cut

Image

I then test fitted the banner pole material - I will be using 1.6mm brass rod. this is the angle I managed to achieve. I will re-sculpt the hand slightly when the brass rod is glued in so that it looks a bit more natural

Image

finally, I scoured my bits box for something to use as a banner topper, unfortunately the only suitable thing i could find was from my Leman Russ figures backpack and I'm not cutting that up! So instead I have attempted to make a 2 part press mould out of Oyumaru and filled it with Procreate putty. I have never used this stuff before so hopefully it works.

Image

And that Cliffhanger is where we will leave it tonight ;)

Re: Rogue Trader Space Marines - Howling Griffon Sigmar VI C

Splendid stuff Dan, hmmm I think the banner pole is a little too thick, maybe drop down to a 1.2mm or 1mm pole. However darker the pole is the thiner it will look, bit like when you wear black...
