I've been meaning to return to the Orlocks to re-do their bases and finish the Heavy Bolter and Juves for more than a couple of years now. I started on the bases last week. They're the new Underhive bases, painted in colors to match the old cardboard terrain. I've got another six that I plan to match to a piece out of Outlanders. Looking at the figures now, I also think I'm going to go back and re-highlight most of them. I thought these were good four years ago, I can definitely do better now.

Pretty much, it's a less popular Knight household though. Not many people paint them up.

The Rangers have been done for awhile, I needed to buy some Dullcote though before I could put the grass tufts on. Finally got around to that so here they are.

Not sure what's next, I'm been re-basing and touching up of my Orlocks, a Man O'War Orc fleet, re-basing and basecoating Squats, or painting some Robots for half-scale TiRoBEx on my workbench right now.

A great look to those older models! :)

I finished the orange bases last night and got the Orlocks on them. I took some shots of the bases on the cardboard terrain that inspired them. Not dead-on matches but they're close enough. Next up are the touch-ups and finsihing the Juves, Heavy and Leader.

There's definitely a method, and it's definitely madness.

There's six different bases. I got three of each and made sure I painted one orange, another blue and the last green. I then made sure hazard stripes appeared on each base type once. When I put the gangers on them I made sure no ganger type appeared more than twice on each base. Anal retentiveness satisfied.

What? Did you think I'd just put all the heavies on the same color base like some rube?

That or some breakdown of mini sub-gangs based on some sort of point differential.

Things have been quiet as I've been working on a Shadespire warband for a FLGS. They're almost done, I'll hopefully have pics next week. I've also been working on re-basing and finishing up some odds and ends for my Squats. This guy is one of those, a Steel Hawk from the article in Citadel Journal 14.

I'm still thinking on the War Hawk and Land Train cars also in the article. Any thoughts for a Squat looking Void Shield generator?
