Operation Holy F##k

Because I dang want to, but also because the Rabbit Hole is planning one crazy-awesome sounding campaign (!!!), I am making with the hobby workings of insane conversion and repurposement.



What's all this?? It's my Terminator hammerers, Alphares (unused HQ), a Chaos dude in power armour, two boxes of three-fer marines, Cadian Command Squad, a somewhat disgraced drop pod, and that Predator I'm tired of looking at. How are these objects connected to the same multi-part hobby binge of a concept? Just you wait and see!!! ;)))))



Trying to restore order much later, when glue-gassing is threatening to set in. Swapped Alphares' sweet power weapon (an original) to give Viklas more distinctive armaments. Also I am putting V. on a much cooler base. Replaced a purposely "damaged" hammer in the unit with V's, as I think giving a home to a good-looking hammer beats gratuitous battle-damage, given the choice.

Magpied the storm shields I originally made for the hammerers, to give to my unit of Vanguard (as the concept begins to take shape!).




The Marines begin to form up. 5x Vanguard vets armed with pistols and storm shields, their job is to bodyguard the Swimming Eagle (whom I will convert from Cadian stuff)... and of course, pistol-whip his enemies...

And the Predator's fate??...



RAZORBACK'D!!! I liked those heavy bolter sponsons and all, but I think they're too long. I use them probably on giant robot. Two plasma pistols make a pretty convincing twin-linked plasma gun.

Hammerers will become Viklas and the Purifiers, homegrown Apoc-style unit each with thunder hammer and heavy flamer, maybe a multi-melta. V. is Sergeant with power weapon and combi-flamer...


Stay tuned for more work on these models, as well as the progression of "stuff-left-over" including... Spider Marines???...
