20mm Cold War TR-77 Part 2

95% done now, I just need to paint some some details, and then later add decals and bases (probably after our big game in December). The 3rd tank is still in bits on the desktop - if my headache doesn't return on Wednesday night I should be able to get that done.

Romanian MLI-84s Part 1

The Romanian version of the BMP-1 was the MLI-84. These were longer than the Russian versions, and traded one roof hatch for a machine gun mount. I'm using S-Model kits with some conversion work. I won't be stretching them as it's too much work to do well; the hull would be no issue but adding a mm here and there between the road wheels would be a royal pain in the backside!

20mm Cold War TAB-71 Part 2

It's almost done now - but this is a terrible photo! Just need to paint the crew man and glue him in looking in the direction that the turret gun is pointing.

20mm Cold War Romanian 120mm Mortars Part 1

Here's the start of my Romanian M1982 120mm mortars. Elheim generic 120mms with new base plates, and when done some removal of details which don't match the Romanian versions.

Tempest

I bought this on a Ebay a few months back - I've always wanted one of these as I had an Epic one years ago and loved the model. Obviously the colours are pretty unpleasant, so it'll be getting a respray (well a strip and respray).

Heresy Era Landraider

I don't think I've ever posted about this before - although I've had it partly assembled for years. It's a Landraider with the Chapterhouse parts on it. The parts stylistically look great, but the casting was a bit off - hence the amount of filing before these fitted well. I used several IG Lascannons in the sponsons and added extra plating to cover up the swivel mechanism, which was too apparent. Tracks are from Blood and Skulls, and ultimately this will be joining my Sons of Horus army.

20mm Cold War Romanian Infantry Part 3

More progress on the Romanians - poor photo as the lighting in the hobby room is bad.
