Agreed, the Fireblade Longstrike mod is inspired. Could make for a good Shadow War operative. :)

Glad you like it :)

Modelling has always been my main interest in the hobby and ATT is a great nexus of conversions, so it's nice to know I can inspire too :biggrin:

I really need to get my 'Advanced stabilisation system' back in gear though, figure out how I'm going about the painting since I've got a couple of models just waiting for that stage.


Quick progress update on the *Shark.
So much sanding, touch-ups and even more sanding... I'll be retired before I finish this one it feels like.
Image


I keep returning to making infantry and characters whenever I get fed up, so.. spoiler warning, I'll be putting a few more of those up soon.
Might also unveil the custom flyer I was working on for the ATT '16 challenge if I can get over my feelings on that model, almost threw it away in disgust because of the amount of sanding I was doing on it :dead:


Longstrike Hammerhead
Rear hatch had to go to make room for the souped up internals and cooling. Also had to replace the sensors, as that bit went missing..
Will be doing some more add-on armour along the center ridge and on the engines. I need to figure out if (and how) I'll be doing the skyray parts, and whether I want to do anything else.. probably leaving the side hatches as is.

I love the Shark, and the Hammerhead. They look amazing.

Aye, that set up on the back door is smart and a great way to distinguish basic hovertank over the real frontline fighter. :)

Skyray
And a bit of progress on the armoring.

Railrifle and spotter operatives
I.. don't like the Ethereal model packaged with the getting started boxes. Their underarms are too wide and long proportionally, their feet are gigantic and they aren't even in the same style as the other Ethereals..
Heretical, I know. From now on you may reach me at La_Miond@Farsight.Enclaves

So I shaved off the caste emblem and replaced it with the one from their belt buckle.
Then I used the circular gizmoTM on their hip as the new buckle, and replaced their heads and arms.
Gave them pants, and shaved the feet down.. I'll be hiding the remaining hints of the wierd style when I base them.

That's actually quite clever - subtle converting. Liking these figures a lot :D

Definitely getting ideas for Water Caste envoys too, besides Air Caste

Updates
Added a markerlight to my custom fireblade and hung a carbine on the spotters hip to properly represent their loadout.

More pathfinders
Drilled out the end of the railrifle for a bit of realistic depth, although it's left the walls almost paper thin :dead:
Sorry for the slight out of focus picture, camera just loves my fingerprints more than the model *conspiracy hat*
Image

Also added another spotter, only custom parts here is the backpack from the hoverdrone etherial (upside down and shaved off the aerial) and head from the fireblade kit.
Image Image Image

And then a bunch more bog standard pathfinders, nothing too exciting so merely took a group photo.
Image

Commander
And then there's what has gotten most of my love lately, my (partially) magnetised 3-in-1 commander, so I can field him as either Farsight (well, not the real one), a Coldstar or a regular Commander. Due to his pose I was thorough and pinned his ankle and foot together and the pinned that to the base. I want to do something fancy with his base but I'm not quite sure what yet..
Image Image

His right hand and the jets are magnetised, will be magnetising the weapon mounts as well, just tac'ed on for now. Made a custom shieldgen and plasmarifle combo and an energy sword of some sort. I want to fancy that up using water effects, but damn that's nerve wrecking, gotta practise first :?

Farsight-y loadout:

And Coldstar loadout:

Click on the pictures for high-res versions! Also, let me know if you want closeups on anything :smile:
