For my birthday I splurged on 30 of Col. Gravis’s Praetorian Rough Rider conversions, and they are fantastic. If you were thinking of getting some, DO! I can’t stress enough how much I love these and how grateful I am to Col. Gravis for allowing us poor sculptor’s access to them. I also got hold of 30 Marauder horses. The RR kits are sculpted to be mounted on outrider horses. If you have the choice definitely put them on these (WH Outriders/Pistoleers that is). I didn’t think the marauder horses would be much different but they are. I have had to take large chunks off of the saddle to get them to fit. Then I had to add some green stuff to the rider’s legs to get a snug fit.
I converted this guy from a Kasrkin storm trooper one night this week. I had been looking at this cool praetorian pic (Praetorian Life Guard by jeenhoong on deviantart.com) and just stated hacking up the storm trooper without any real plan. Usually that is a bad thing. In this case however I’m not sure. I’m opening it up to the world- do I do the rest of the squad or retire this guy as a one off? (Keeping in mind that I’m not the most skilled sculptor in the world).
I also have a few Ogryns on the work bench…
The last thing I have been playing with is this Blood Angles Fortress Monastery. I started it years ago and actually forgot all about it. I found it again whilst moving and roughly laid out some of the bits. It will fit on two 2x2 foot sections, so I could turn one of them into an army on parade base if I wanted. I had started adding plaster/clay detailing before packing it up. This hooded chap was holding a sword which has broken off.
I will post up more as it progresses.
