Updated prize list in second post. Kromlech has thrown in a 20 Euro voucher for the overall winner!

 

I'll also be updating the deadline to August 17 with final judging the following days.

Threw some paint at Gazza, the collector of shiny fingz. Lots of gold. Dug out Freebooterz and 2E codex for some color inspiration, dismayed to find very little to be had. Oh well.

Everyone's steaming along! Very nice showings.

 

Even though I'm not competing, I am mekkin right alongside you lot. I'm up to 6. My warband has loads of worky bits and kunnin plans but not many boys so I'm over half done with my build. Missing another rokkit boy, 2 more burnas, and a loota.

Unfortunately, between one of my cats rather unexpectedly having to be put to sleep last week, and the fact that some of the bits on order having been slower to arrive than expected, the likelihood that I'll have a fully-painted Kill Team together by the end of next week is looking...a tad iffy.  :(

 

However! I'll still be doing my damnedest to at least have everything assembled by the deadline. Log starting up in the Garage, ASAP.

Sorry to hear about your cat. Pets have a special place and are another member of the family. I was dealing with a medical emergency with one of my dogs earlier today and it has me emotionally drained, so I can sympathize. I only have 2 burnas and a loota left to build on mine but just have nothing in the tank today.

 

On a positive note.. I did hand sharpen my mower blade earlier.. that's kinda like mekkin around..

I should be doing study right now, but i had a little freak-out and fixed me grot instead! I wasn't gonna name grots but I'm pretty happy with this wun. If i think of a name that suits him I'll break that rule.

Also built 90% of my big shoota guy. I have like 2 more grots to build and my mob is built. I did a little bit of base painting on Boney and the polishing grot the other day so if I have an epic weekend I could be on track to get this thing done by the cut-off date.

Even if I don't (can't say I really expect to), I found out some guys at the LGS are maybe playing kill team in store. I'll maybe take these lads down there and see if i can join in hey.

Gunslug has looted a umie evvy bolter and hopes to find a few more guns laying around so he can have a mekboy build him a proppa kustom kombi weapon like Gazza and Bazza have.

Honestly I feel like this is my weakest build in the while mob, but I guess one of them had to be. I like the idea of him working his way up from shoota boy to loota though.

Garslag - Yeah, I think the mass of the bigbolta could use a bit more support - maybe put a shoulder pad on his right shoulder with a bit of chain (or a plasticard strap)  to pull on the back of the bolta and help stop the front drooping :?

 

Still doing some

Got a couple of grots half built in GS (back halves) so I'll see about getting some more of them done tonight :biggrin

Thanks mate, good idea. I actually considered a strap or chain for it, but i didn't know how to achieve that. The Brassaxe Methodology sounds like a goer.

Your guys are huge - they look even bigger than your normal biggened boyz. Kommando nobz mob?!

How would he put the bigbolter down if its chained to him?

Cheers Garslag, da kommandos probably are a bit bigger than normal lads but it's mainly down to backpacks, webbing, extra pouches and pockets and stikkbomz and stuff (and climbing ropes and grappling hooks if I can find my heavy duty cotton reel).

How would he put the bigbolter down if its chained to him?

If you make a small loop on the top of da bolta towards the back (thin-ish copper wire should do) and make a hook for the end of the chain or strap to go through it, he should be able to unhook it when he's not using it (wants to be careful where he puts it down though else some git'll nick it).

Sorry for the silence guys. I'm still here, watching the awesome progress. I'm mekkin around on my own still but have been making slow progress on my Loota since I'm drastically redoing his weapon. Hopefully I'll wrap him up today.
