Although more common in the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus, the arcane technology used in their construction makes these tanks revered relics within Imperial Guard armoured companies, while on Vraks they were turned to the traitor`s cause by the dark arts of Chaos.This fantastically detailed model was designed by Phil Stutcinskas, and you can see pictures of this baroque war machine HereYou can also find experimental rules for the Valdor for download HereThe Valdor is a resin model with plastic tracks and comes with all weapon options and both renegade and Imperial crew.The Valdor is available for pre-order Now for release the week commencing the 26th of January.

WIP Imperial Guard

I've finally got a squad of Guardsmen finished (just some small detailing and highlighting left to do + basing of course). My goal with their paint scheme is to actually have them with camoflage - kinda WW2 German style. Of course some things had to be painted the way they are as it is '40k' after all. Thus, obviously the lasguns would look silly if they appeared to have wooden stocks etc. Originally I was going to do all of them in full camo but considering how many minis are going to go into the army... so just the sergeants and officers will have full camo. The 'regulars' will have camo coats and green pants. I'm going with NMM (non-metallic metal) on the guns and ammo boxes, but for things like the flamer and some equpiment pieces I think I'm gonna stick with actual metals. Comments welcome! I'm also planning a few divisions in the army, so there will be a few squads painted in desert schemes (Afrika Korps) and an all gray (Wehrmacht). Stormtroopers (which will hopefully be all-plastic soon!) will get a full camo scheme.

The Sarge - first guardsmen fully paintedI painted his shoulder pads with some isignia - not sure if I'll add it to all the guardsmen - I need to get it smaller and sharper looking - not too happy about how it turned out on the sarge - not sure if red is the color I should use either, perhaps white... ideas welcome

Lineup up of the first squad

WIP Blood Angels

A few shots of some Blood Angels minis being worked on. I still have basically all of the Black Reach stuff to paint plus the other 4 termis with lightning claws. Once thats all done, there is still a mountain of stuff to paint to finish the army and have it ready for a huge Apocalypse game! :)

Painting Update: Duellists

Its been a while since I've posted any painting updates. Here are some WIP shots of my other unit of duellists. I decided to go with a green/white scheme for these guys. I've got one basically finished right now while the rest are in the "brown" phase.
