For last years EpicUK Grand Tournament I painted myself a 3000pt Baran Seige Masters Army that many of you will have seen over on my painting blog...despite it being ground into the...erm...ground at that event...it did look real purdy once I'd painted it up all nice and weathered:

And I was pretty happy with how it ended up :-) FoW bases, lot's of room for infantry, plenty of nice non gw miniatures. It's how I roll!

Well, this summer I'd like to finish my guard collection. The idea behind the models included are that they will allow me to field a multiple of lists from across the Imperial Spectrum such as Steel Legion, Seige Masters, Death Korps, Mossinians, Minervans, etc...with the addition of titans, ordinatii and air cav units it'll be able to do several other lists too: but for now I'll be concentrating on what's on my shelves before diving headlong into any other forces!

Here's what's to be painted and it's points values:

DEATH RIDER COMPANY [250]
12 Death Korps Rough Rider units
[s]ENGINEERS PLATOON [300]
8 Death Korps Engineer units, Hades Breaching Drill
[/s]
GRENADIERS PLATOON [300]
8 Death Korps Grenadier units

HEAVY SUPPORT BATTERY [200]
3 Earthshaker Platform

HEAVY SUPPORT BATTERY [125]
3 Hydra or Heavy Anti-Aircraft Platform

[s]HEAVY TANK PLATOON [350]
2 Macharius Tanks, Macharius Command Tank

[/s]
[s]HEAVY TANK PLATOON [350]
2 Macharius Tanks, Macharius Command Tank

LIGHT SUPPORT BATTERY [200]
4 Quad Launchers, 4 Centaurs
[/s]
LIGHT SUPPORT BATTERY [200]
4 Heavy Mortars, 4 Centaurs

DEATHSTRIKE MISSILE BATTERY [200]
2 Deathstrike Missile Launchers

SELF-PROPELLED HEAVY SUPPORT [250]
3 Bombards

SUPER-HEAVY TANK PLATOON [200]
Shadowsword

TANK PLATOON [390]
3 Leman Russ, Leman Russ Vanquisher, 2 Leman Russ Thunderer (Maclador Defenders)

TANK PLATOON [390]
3 Leman Russ, Leman Russ Vanquisher, 2 Leman Russ Thunderer (Maclador Defenders)

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150]
2 Thunderbolts (Lightnings)

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150]
2 Thunderbolts (Lightnings)

THUNDERBOLT FIGHTERS [150]
2 Thunderbolts

MARAUDER BOMBERS [250]
2 Marauders

9 CHIMERA [225]

6 ROBOTISED OGRYNS [300]

4 FIRE SUPPORT [200]

Rapier Platoon (3 Rapiers) [75]

GRAND TOTAL: 5080pts!

So: I've got 5 months before a big campaign I'm running and 6 months to get it all done whilst I've got sunshine coming through my south facing window and then I'm hunkering down for the winter! I'll be trying to paint 1000pts or more per month.

Pictures will commence on the 1st :-)

Loved your Siegemasters. Great idea to have modular IG to represent a variety of IG Army Lists. Can't wait to see this summer's work.

Cheers

James

Thanks folks :-)

Yep, Infantry are bog standard EW Royal Empire Conscripts, the Commander Stands are all GW Character Packs and Heavy Weapons. I have no idea what the flock is anymore as it's all in a see through zip lock bag now with no brand name. THe 'muddy' bases however are created with 'Pidera Pomez' Coarse Pumice paste. This is then painted brown and given a coat of Army Painter medium QuickShade.

An awesome army MOK, your painting has come a long way and this is probably one of the best looking guard armies I've seen on this forum.

Can't wait to see the new stuff.

Thanks everyone :-)

I left my camera at the local store! So I'll pick it up in the next few days and start with a 'how to' on a formation of Macharius :-)

Don't worry! I'll still do a how to on the Macharius'! But here's this months batch (excluding them) ready for a big tourney in May: I'm sure there will be chargrin at my taking Siege Troops to a tourney yet again but I just need the focus to get stuff painted!

That's 725pts worth...roughly 1450 plus the Machs.
