First Models

I've finished the building phase on a handful of models thus far.  Most of what I've done has been armor, with a handful of soldiers either close to done or halfway there.

Not a lot of customization on the armor right now.  I have some mesh netting and other materials I plan to use on the painting phase to give them more character, but the basic shape of them is standard Leman Russ, Chimera and Basilisk.

The tank gunner on the right has no head currently, I've promised him one by the end of the weekend though.  I've messed around a bit with the placement of his turret gun.  I know...daring.

Here's my Basilisk.  Standard design here.  I'm making some custom sandbags for it to pile on the upper platform.  The commander with his binoculars will be up there and I have a second soldier who will kneel by the cannon hatch, presumably his job is the loader.  In the lower compartment I'm planning to put some spare munitions.  Working on sculpting those at the moment.

My Chimera.  Not entirely sure what I'm going to do with this one yet.

I'm pretty proud of this little guy.  I gave him a walking motion by trimming and re-gluing a couple of the toes.  I also gave him a slight head turn and tilt as if he's sniffing out a target.

A couple of Tullon Irregulars here.  The guy with the flamer is Private Sujohn.  I need to file down his mask and shape it a bit.  The second guy here is Private Tipp.  I have an old collection of Heroclix and I've been sacrificing them to the will of the Emperor.  I used one here, Bonecrusher I believe it was, to give Tipp the look of running down a target.

All of the models need filler for their gaps and some touch ups in the shaping department.  I really only have the troops left at this point.  I'm hoping to have built most, if not all of them by the end of the weekend.

Feel free to comment, I'd love to hear thoughts and ideas!
