I admire the dedication and skill you put into your project.

Insomniac03 Oct 2020 4:27 a.m. PST

Cheers :) … It seems to be a bit of an obsession for me.

The next one is a Sgt:

Insomniac04 Oct 2020 11:43 p.m. PST

… and another Sgt:

Insomniac21 Oct 2020 3:44 a.m. PST

Something new today… a proxy Hellhound tank :) :

It's just primed at the moment so needs lots of painting yet :) .

Insomniac09 Nov 2020 3:05 p.m. PST

Hellhound painted:

Tauroxes painted:

Decals will be added once nine more vehicles are converted and painted.

Insomniac18 Dec 2020 1:59 p.m. PST

It's been a while but I've started sculpting Junior Officers again. This is the first one and he's telling the troops behind him to "HOLD!" :) …

The next one will be started tomorrow so there will be more to come :) .

Insomniac27 Dec 2020 1:23 p.m. PST

Another junior officer, this tiime with a power hammer and a smile :) …

The next one is partially finished and it may end up with a power axe… or a power hammer… I haven't decided yet :) .

Insomniac10 Jan 2021 1:06 p.m. PST

The last of the junior officers:

Insomniac30 Jan 2021 11:06 a.m. PST

Today's offering is a Standard Bearer:

Once the basing tab is fitted, I'll be on to the next one… a Medic.

Insomniac11 Feb 2021 6:51 a.m. PST

The next batch of WIPs:

Insomniac21 Feb 2021 1:27 p.m. PST

I've had some army prep time, this weekend… an officer and some Sgts:

Some support troopers:

and some progress on a few sculpts:

Insomniac21 Mar 2021 9:59 a.m. PST

A pair of Medics:

… another Lasgunner and a Heavy Flamer Trooper:

Insomniac26 Mar 2021 8:05 a.m. PST

I'm keeping the machine rolling with an AutoCannon to go with the existing Heavy Weapon Trooper and a Grenadier:

This is to follow the two Medics, I recently finished:

I'm not sure what's next yet :) .

Insomniac31 Mar 2021 2:34 a.m. PST

With the completion of this Lasgunner:

I can now send the latest batch off to Macrocosm Miniatures for casting :) :

Less than 15 sculpts/conversions to go now :) .

Insomniac07 Apr 2021 2:16 p.m. PST

A Captain with his Dog:

Insomniac27 Apr 2021 12:14 p.m. PST

Just the basing tab to go on this one… the most powerful Squat (colonel) in the universe :) …

He may need avenging at some point :D !

Insomniac02 May 2021 12:42 p.m. PST

Five Lasgunners today:

Insomniac29 Jul 2021 1:55 a.m. PST

Just one more batch of troops and I'll be ready to start painting in earnest…

Insomniac23 Jan 2022 3:22 a.m. PST

The last batch turned up and after a little arranging, were primed. Now it's just a case of waiting for the right time to get my brushes out (in between sculpting and life stuff):

Speaking of sculpting, now it's time to start with other stuff that wasn't part of the original project…

First up, a sniper (I'm not a fan of Squat snipers… I tend to use Ratling for the sniping duties… but it was requested so here it is):

And here's a bunch of WIP sculpts; a DJ (who will be getting decks, speakers and an "AH YEAH!") and five close combat specialists (who will be getting a bolt pistol and a melee weapon of some description – hammer/axe/sword):

After these are finished, I really don't know what will be next…

Insomniac07 Feb 2022 6:02 a.m. PST

A Piper from this weekend :) :

Insomniac19 Feb 2022 3:01 a.m. PST

This is not one of the miniatures that I planned to finish… but here's a Primaris Psyker proxy:

Affectionately known as a Beer Seer.

Insomniac03 Mar 2022 7:05 a.m. PST

The Wine Witch:

Out on the town, together :) :

Insomniac15 Mar 2022 1:23 a.m. PST

Moving on to some close combat troops now:

Insomniac21 Apr 2022 1:43 p.m. PST

An angry Artillery Officer (SNCO):

Insomniac26 Apr 2022 6:55 a.m. PST

This is my painted, army command unit (with advisors):

Insomniac24 Jul 2022 12:00 p.m. PST

I decided to sculpt the close combat troopers individually… and have now finished the first one of five :) :

I was failing dismally; trying to sculpt them all together so it just made sense to cut things down a bit. I've started on the second one and hope to have him finished by the end of the week :) .

Insomniac29 Jul 2022 1:29 a.m. PST

The latest trooper:

Insomniac30 Jul 2022 1:49 a.m. PST

Number 4 :

Insomniac03 Aug 2022 10:52 a.m. PST

The last squad member is now finished:

The next sculpt to get some contact-time, will be the DJ :) …

Insomniac15 Aug 2022 10:14 a.m. PST

A DJ or proxy standard bearer:

Insomniac16 Aug 2022 1:03 p.m. PST

The last batch, all packed up, ready to be sent for casting :) :

Insomniac21 Aug 2022 11:33 a.m. PST

All of the new army sculpts:

A painted Beer Seer (proxy Primaris Psyker):

A Sculpted Engineseer proxy:

and a bit of fun with a Squat Thor:

Insomniac07 Dec 2022 9:46 a.m. PST

I have just finished painting the Wine Witch (Proxy Primaris Psyker):

Here are the Wine Witch and Beer Seer together :) :

Insomniac11 Dec 2022 12:41 p.m. PST

Seeing as I have a couple of these, it was only right and proper to paint one up for my army. He'll proxy as a command comms, I reckon :) :

Insomniac25 Dec 2022 1:03 a.m. PST

I was hoping to paint up a Christmas miniature but didn't have time… so here's the latest sculpt, an Ordnance Officer. Merry Christmas :) :

Insomniac05 Jan 2023 9:31 a.m. PST

An Air Force Advisor:

Insomniac17 Mar 2023 4:55 a.m. PST

Cast up:

… and a converted/scratchbuilt Chimera proxy :) :

Insomniac03 Apr 2023 11:44 a.m. PST

I've run out of sculpting mojo so I thought I'd paint the first infantry squad for the first platoon :) :

I've started to paint the heavy weapon squad for the same platoon so (hopefully) that should be finished in the next week or so :) .

Insomniac16 Apr 2023 6:19 a.m. PST

A painted Engineseer:

Insomniac17 Apr 2023 9:51 a.m. PST

Here's the next squad; a heavy weapon squad for the first platoon of blue company :) :

Once the bases have properly dried, I'll be getting the second infantry squad out and onto the painting table.

Insomniac08 May 2023 1:39 p.m. PST

The latest Beer Seer is finished :) :

He's obviously themed… but has arrived a few months later than planned :) .

Insomniac14 May 2023 12:59 p.m. PST

Continuing the theme, here's another Wine Witch:

Here's the two together:

Insomniac28 May 2023 3:17 a.m. PST

The latest unit is finished; a Squat Infantry Squad:

This squad completes the first infantry platoon for the army :) . Only two more platoons to go now :) …

Insomniac05 Jun 2023 3:51 a.m. PST

I've just finished Thor…

… and he really doesn't like being reminded about things…

Insomniac11 Jun 2023 5:54 a.m. PST

Insomniac12 Jun 2023 12:28 p.m. PST
