Finishing up those loose ends

As previously mentioned, there were things left unfinished on the latest batch of DKK.  


The blue glow on the plasma guns. 


The dirt on the end of the mole mortar - it went on looking quite light (in colour) and as they are all on grey rubble and my boards are all urban; so the concrete dust look is actually appropriate, IMO.


The poor ol' QM.  Both his ankles are pinned.  He could have been pro painted, but he looks OK.  Certainly doesn't scream out as 'painted by someone with little skill who didn't give a toss'.  So good enough then.



And the mole mortar team now look like they belong in a war zone.  They both have FW las pistols.


I'm still putting more on the platoon standard....

The Macharian 203rd revisited.

The previous post about these boys was the most visited post ever to appear on Devos IV.  And that wasn't all me revisiting my own handiwork, either.  Maybe something to do with the French election which was on at the same time ?  Who knows...


So this is the end of the Macron mini-project.  There are the last of them put together and painted (Oooh, look, he's painted more minis - yeah, but the scheme is suspiciously like the DKK), like before many of them have VL arms. 


There are Pig Iron punches and backpacks on show here.


Some Anvil Industry arms and assault rifles.


Some VL heavy calibre semi automatic rifles (you can jam the sear on a SLR to make it fire on full auto, but you can't expect to aim it properly).


I pinched one of the previous batch out of the case to make sure they matched.

 


So do they match ?  Yes.


The whole lot of them. 


I still love this guy.


Their non-tactica imperialis Organisation.  Officer & three squads of ten, only one special weapon. 


Off you go, boys.

Housekeeping

There wasn't a lot of room left on the BoS.  The clean up was overdue.  Fortunately there is lot of slate in the garden to do the scraping with.
