There's more of the weird pilgrims on the left, some space wolf scouts without heads (I ordered them before Chrimbo and hope they rock up soon) then the servants of chaos boxed set (an expansion set for BSFortress) then a couple of rows of the 1980s Copplestone castings mad max types and then a Blood Pact detachment with a couple of three missile launchers.

Because you can never have too much BBBBRRRRRRT in your Iggy army.
And you can blu-tac missile pods and hellfire missiles to Valkyries.
Grey, grey, grey and grey with a Tamiya signal yellow id flash.
Added decals. Bird 9
And bird 6. Any similarity to JG52 markings is entirely co-incidental. But they look good with the greys, no ?
Port side of the other bird.
Crew information panels - the decals are actually from a 1/48 US WW2 bomb kit.
And the other bird as well. They still need a bit of work...

Before we start, No2 daughter (eight years old), got a Revell London skyline kit (suitable for 10+) from my dad for Christmas and built it with a little guidance from me, but largely on her own (it's for kids of ten plus, daddy). It only took her two days. No1 daughter's wooden tower bridge took her nearly a week. So she had to build it quicker to send pictures to Grandad. Oh and did I mention that it was a kit suitable for children of 10+ ?*
These insane minis are from a kickstarter, I think by Andrew Rae of Statuesque minitures fame, although I might be wrong. Who ever did them, they were inspired by some blachitsu-esque pen and ink drawings and make fine additions to either the Old World or 40K universe.
These guys are unarmed, so not much good on the battlefield, but a sure fire hit for Inquisimunda.
These three, preaching on the brick of scrutiny, are coloured to match the 'Tree of Man' Ecclesiarchical delegation accompanying the Iggies on Devos IV.
More of these later, perhaps.

Stolen pict - this by Arkuion from the 'Doom of Sevarus Prime' project. Worth either a google or just look him up on deviantart.
I'm still suffering from an excess of Real LifeTM and now the weather has turned too cold and wet to allow any work in the garage. I hope all of you out there are getting some me time/hobby time and all that good stuff.

I went to a 50th birthday party the other week. Well, actually, I went to the prep and then came home again, I didn't actually go to the party, but that's not the point. My host is one of those childhood friends I grew up playing D&D with. And the early WH. and then MERP and so on, one of the four Apocalypse Generals.
Anyway, it turns out that during his ten year project to refurb his house, he came across these. I think that looking at the prices (99p for a multi model blister pack) and that Mark Copplestone is working for Grenadier at this time. And that the model line is Grenadier Future Warriors, these could be comfortably dated to between 1986 and 1990.
I was given these by his better half as I left. The only way he'd ever build and paint this lot is if I did them anyway, I suppose.
So with the increase in Rogue Inquisimunda Team, these are welcome addition.
Hopefully, I'll be able to make a start on these before 2026.
Looking at the Closet of Doom (TM), I think that's a decent target date.
And if you do click the picks and have a look, you'll see one blister is entitled 'Killer Bimbos'. Which with hindsight seems a little jarring to the sensibilities of 2019. How very 80's.

I take No1 daughter to Banbury every other Saturday morning. Whilst she is trampolining, I get a coffee, go to the comic shop, drop in on the GW and so on. Occasionally there's a marker stall which does toy cars. First edition dinky toys in their boxes for £50 all the way down to the rummage box which usually contains a load of old rubbish.
But a casual glance brought my eye to this old thing, the head lamps and front bumper are broken off, the drop top is missing and the windscreen frame might not survive being stood back up. But it is the right scale. If 'stealer cults have limos, those vehicles have to come from somewhere, right ? There will be folk in the hive who can afford things like this ? PDF staff car, anyone ?
So one for the pile. Hoping to one day blend it in with these:
I only hope I get Dick Dastardly enough...
