Soooo, as you can probably tell by the relative silence from me, that I have failed on the dreadtober pledge to finish my Deredeo. Between one thing and another I did not get past the final wash stage on the armour plates. Not too worried about it though, just got to go with the flow :).
In the meantime here are some Space Wolf breacher marines I converted up a little while ago. I have been on a bit of a drive to reduce the pile of shame that is in my garage, and build or sell all the stuff I have, so it can at least be used in some games rather than languishing in a box for eve
I don't play Heresy anymore since Forgeworld announced their decision to stick with 7th (booo) but I still love the fluff and have a few heresy minis sitting in the wings that I want to build and paint for my collection. This unit was one of those. The plastic marines are from the burning of prospero box set, which is a great and cheap way to get some mkIII armour, which is synonymous with breacher marines. I converted one of the marines with an antennae so he can be used as a nunceo vox carrier at a pinch. I saw a review for some custom laser cut shields awhile ago from ML Shields who has a shop on facebook and bought a load. I really like the wolf motifs on the shields, it adds some wolfy flavour to an otherwise quite plain (on the wolfy scale) unit. The sergeant has been magnetised so I can swap his CC weapon depending on need, but the rest of the squad is stock.
These will not get painted for awhile but I am pleased the assembly is finished, and I think they look pretty cool too!
