Happy New Year! and a progress update :)

Happy New Year to all of you out there!

I spent my evening painting a test model for my Praetorian troops, which I'll post a picture of later as soon as I finish off the little details. Also, I've just placed an order for some of Col. Gravis's pith helmeted heads from 'Secret Weapon', and hopefully placing an order soon with TrooperPX for some Praetorian bodies and arms to allow me to build up my forces quicker than having to just wait for models to appear on eBay!

As I said in my original post, I've been trying to convert some Cadians into Praetorians as well, and my first attempts seemed to go well last night, with the arms completely rebuilt and now curing, so that I can add epaulettes to them later today (and then the heads, when they arrive!)

To go with my plastic unit, I've been modelling a sergeant from some bits I had left over, and he seems to be taking shape as well now - epaulettes and braiding looking really good - one is pleased :)

Pics to follow soon!


  1. You're right to go with Gravis's sculpts - they're amazing!

    Oh, I forgot to mention that once your blog's a little more established, get in touch with Ron over at From The Warp - it's a very friendly and very supportive hub for a great many blogs.

  2. Thank you Admiral, I'm new to the whole blogging thing, but decided to have a go at writing about something I know about!

    And thanks for the tip, I'll definately talk to him once I've got a few more followers and some more pictures up.
