Living in Tucson, going to law school at the University of Arizona - go Wildcats (sound convincing?). I should probably be studying right now. Modeling, painting and gaming are what keep me sane and are what I use to avoid studying.
Last night I finished the final 6 body guard for my command squads, which leaves only 80 models of 2nd and 3rd platoon left. Later this week I'll post pics of the body guard.
Here's one of the two special weapons squads: They're armed with 2x Flamers and 1x Demo charge.
The Demo Charge was made from some pieces from the IG Heavy Weapon sprue (I think they belong to the auto cannon). Each half normally glues on either side of the weapon. I made some key cuts and made them sit flush to each other. I then took an arm that was throwing a grenade. I cut out the grenade and put the handle in.
The rules for the demo charge require you to substitute the model for a normal lasgunner after he throws the demo charge. Not wanting to paint another model, I decided to instead paint an extra arm and magnetize them all:
So far in the 2 games I've played with the demo charges they've missed completely. Oh well.
I also sent away for my T-Shirt for tournament. Thanks all who voted. I actually liked the brown myself, and so did one other person. But the maroon is on the way. Here's a pic of the final design:
Who are the Sons of Sek? My latest project is the Sons of Sek traitor guard for the Las Vegas GT in September. This fighting force is from Dan Abnett's Guant's Ghosts series. They first appeared in Traitor General. They are the personal army of Magister Anakawanar Sek, one of the lieutenants of the head of the Chaos forces in the Sabbat Worlds, the Archon Urlock Gaur. They are a highly regimented and disciplined fighting force, distinguished from the common rabble that makes up the bulk of most Chaos forces. They are Sek's answer to Gaur's Bloodpact, and could very well represent the early stages of Sek's power grab.
