Muninn, just email me your info and I'll get these Eldar to the webway portal!

Check back soon, as I'm digging through the Giveaway Garage now and will be posting new loot soon!

Imperial Fists - Finished Terminators

These guys have been done for a while, but have been waiting for their photo shoot.  Not a lot different than their first appearance, but the detail work has been finished, so I'm calling 'em done.  As with the tactical squad, I've based their shoulder markings on an option in the Insignium Astartes. I don't know that all termie squads will get the same shoulder, but I'm liking it on these dudes.

Giveaway #4 - Eldar Guardian Squad

Time for Giveaway #4!   As I mentioned in my first post, my giveaways are about getting rid of stuff I'll probably never use.  As such, they won't be the new hot items...but hey, at least they're free!  Like this one:

An Eldar Guardian squad, for a project conceived so long ago, I don't even remember what it was.  I remember they came via Ebay, and my brother played Eldar once upon a time, so it was probably going to be for him.  However, neither my bro nor I have been able to hobby much lately, and I don't want to REbay them.  So, it's time to send this squad to someone who can use them! I guess the previous owner painted them, so they are ready for the table:

Spotlight: Muninn's Brush

Not only does fellow blogger Muninn do great work, he also has some really cool ideas (check out his May Mini Challenge from earlier this year).  Right now, he's running a giveaway for the awesome Emperor's Champion model:

Imperial Fists - Terminators (WIP)

I've been pretty distracted with Dark Vengeance, but I finally have some terminator pics to share. Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on my "shooty or TH/SS" question. Obviously, I opted for TH/SS for this first squad. I knew I'd be painting up another at some point, and I thought I might want to use the rumored DV termies for my shooty squad. 

If you've seen any of my recent posts, you know I've been drooling over the Dark Vengeance set, and have pretty much decided to start two new armies! Sooo,  the Deathwing models will remain Deathwing. And yes, I'm a sap and GW rolled right over me.

As with the tac squad sarge, these minis are done more in an Ultras style than strict IF. I guess I like the punch of the white helmets. More pics inside...

WINNER! Giveaway #3 - Ragnar Blackmane

Ragnar is heading back to Fenris! Well, maybe not, but he IS heading to styx of Army of the Week.  He's our August giveaway winner, via RANDOM.ORG. Styx, shoot me an email so we can get Ragnar out of storage and onto the battlefield!

I want to thank everyone who's become a follower of the blog ,and those who commented on this giveaway. I'm also noticing a lot of repeat visitors and really appreciate your continued support.

There were a couple questions in the original post about how I was planning to convert Ragnar. My idea was to make a Blackmane based on the above piece of art. Removing bits from the metal model would be tricky and might require some touch-up sculpting, but I thought I could use the weapons and wolf shoulder pauldron at least. I was also going to try to get his wolfy cummerbund. All this and the original backpack would go on one of the new plastic models with new head (repositioned to mimic the art).

Thanks again, and check back for September's giveaway!

Giveaway #3 - Ragnar Blackmane

This month's 40K giveaway is Wolf Lord Ragnar Blackmane!

Games Workshop's rendition
While I've never been a huge fan of this model, I Ebayed it to do a Ragnar conversion. I'd seen several really nice conversions that utilized bits from this original, and wanted to do the same. Well, my project list is too long, so I'm going to scratch this one off. Hopefully one of you can put this mini to use, either as he is or in your own conversion.
