Although I painted these last year I thought they’d be worth showing because the models look quite ugly until you paint them. The models were never actually released with the guns on the carriage I’ve glued them to but they fit the look of my army on said carriages. Flak Batteries were part of 2nd edition Space Marine but I’ve got absolutely memory of them being used in game nor can I find any rules for them! I guess they were part of a WD article I don’t have.

You’ll notice that half of the barrels look drilled out, they’re not they were cast that way. I made the decision not to drill the barrels out because I find that job tedious and it would then mean I’d have to think about drilling all barrels on all models out.

In other news I’ve been busy prepping my Leman Russ Company as well as cleaning up my Leviathans.

As the weather has improved I’ve been able to take some photos of my completed Artillery Company that I finished painting last weekend:

So, what’s next? Either Rocket Company number two or a Leman Russ Company. I’m also in the process of cleaning up and gluing both my Heavy and Beastmen Companies and I’m itching to get my Gorgon companies painted as well. Decisions decisions! 🙂

As a break from painting Imperial Guard* I’ve painted up one of the metal Space Marine Librarian models to be used with my EpicA Devastators:

Space Marine Librarian

The eagle eyed will notice that I base my Space Marines differently to my Imperial Guard. I did this because I wanted the my SM bases to stand out better against their blue armour and I didn’t want to use flock for this. The scatter material is “Autumn Meadow 1017” that I bought from a model railway store via ebay.

*This isn’t quite true, I’ve been basing my Artillery Company and I painted my Librarian inbetween the artillery bases drying.
