Hydra Guard: Phoenix Alpha

 I finished my full 'Rewards of Treason' unit, some Phoenix Guard terminators, who I have been calling the Hydra Guard or Phoenix Alphas. I really like how the gold and turquoise interact visually and it was fun doing the individual shields, which covered the most prominent Emperor's Children iconography.

 I also did this second Tactical Sergeant, which I am pretty pleased with....

Ork Starter Army/ Ally Detachment on eBay: Da Snake Moon Boyz

I put my little collection of Ork units up on eBay. There are some nice ones in there; my Snakebite Boarboy Bikers and my bitz-bashed Meganobz among my favorites. You can see everything in the detachment in the post here. I used them as Allies, but they would make a great starter army too. I am of course willing to share the painting recipes so that the army could be expanded or would do more units on commission if needed.

Anyway, here is the auction:

Alpha Legion Terminator Sergeant Zeta Prime

Small Word Bearers Project

This was just a small project, some wacky converted characters (a Dark Apostle and Sorcerer) and the Champions from his Cultits units. This army will be pretty neat, classic Word Bearers with max Cultists in the Troop slots!
Went for the charcoal grey Word Bearers as it is just a bit more interesting than either full black or red...

New Cryptek Conversion (using WFB Banshee)

 So we have all seen the ole' Cryptek converted from a Cairn Wraith at this point. I mean, almost everyone has done one. All my Crypteks are converted from plastic Fantasy Undead characters. Previously I had the old Cairn Wraith standby and two more made from plastic Corpse Cart drivers. For this last one it came down to either the plastic Banshee or the plastic Necromancer. It basically came down me wanting an additional floating Cryptek, as both the Corpse Cart drivers were planted firmly on the ground. Overall this is the little more difficult than the Wraith conversion, which is just a weapon and head swap. I basically just sliced the Banshee in half and then built an upper body with extra bits from the Barge sprue, making sure to pose the upper body quite wistfully.
