Armageddon Steel Legion muster

With the new, additional units I fancied a look at the whole detachment.  There was a sunny day and they suddenly appeared around the BoS. 

There's not much room on the little green table and they're jammed in hull to hull.

Part of reason for getting them all out is to compare and contrast where the tracks and the weathering are and decide what needs doing next for the sake of homogeneity.

Most of the stuff is OK and doesn't look too out of kilter with the rest, obviously the WIP mortian tanks need work but that's just the base colour on there

A troop of stompa-hunters, 'cause Sentinels rarely get much love.

And the other troop.

SA7's not much good without missiles. 

Panzer Companie leader and 2iC. 

The Chimerae tracks are entirely rust atm, so they need work as well.

And there's some WIP stuff on the table as well, This is the first of the next three Sentinels and there's another Zug of Mortians to get table ready as well. 

Happy days.

Random DKK Leman Russ'

This is just a post to let you know that I'm still alive and have not forsaken the long war.   You may be familiar with my DKK panzer squadron and have seen these three individually elsewhere, but there they are together - I was re-organising some storage. 

The green vanquisher is an orphan from a DKK batch from a fb DKK page a couple of years ago.  It was clearly the best piece there and one of the few which didn't need major re-working.  Now I would always do the triple stripe with equal width stripes over the first panel.  But as you can see in the photo below, the stripes are consistent both sides of the tank. 

Justice Extremis is the commissar's tank from the larger grouping.  Included here for no particular reason. Although under the harsh lens of photography I can see some areas where the shading could be stronger.

211 was another 'opportunity' which I could not resist.  However, I do now have enough random extra DKK LRMBT so no more.  Honest.  It is a Mars Alpha hull, but lacks the DKK filter system and trenching rails.  It was grey when it arrived so it basically just got the same treatment as the commissar's tank.                   

The rain streaking is from the Mig Early War Panzer kit.  If you click the pic you can see that the blue filter was more heavily applied to the commissar's tank. 

I'm thinking that perhaps hairspray and salt and then panzer grey might be the way to go with the vanquisher (?)   The number 4 on the commissar's tank is down to the DM; all assets must be accounted for and loading for interstellar traveller is going to be done (quite literally) by the numbers.

There.  Nothing new, but I'm very slowly churning through stuff in my hour and half a week hobby time.
