Uriah Jacobus Painted

Here's my Uriah Jacobus conversion that I wrote about previously all painted up, the color scheme is intended to match with my wife's Sisters.  The main color of the robes is the old Liche Purple, I'm not sure what it's called in the new colors, with a red-gore tabard with blood read highlights.  The flames were based with Mechrite Red then highlighted with Blazing Orange, Iyanden Dark Sun and White, I finished the flames with a bit of yellow ink.

Shrine-World PDF

I'm playing around with some guardsmen for my wife to use as allies with her Sisters; I'm looking doing a somewhat ceremonial-looking  PDF regiment from the same homeworld and using similar colors.  I'm using  cadian bodies MAS Guards heads and Cadian arms/weapons.  I think the Cadian  look fine but I'm kinda iffy on the Cadian shoulder pads -- I think I'll reserve final judgement until after the prototype is painted.

I decided to do a sergeant first as the prototype.  Since these guys will likely be blobbed up with Uriah Jacobus, the Sgts. will get power axes.  Here of course comes the rub;  guardsmen hold their las-pistols in their right hands and chain swords in the left -- except for the Warriors of  Chaos, all of the axes are held by right hands, and the WoC axes don't really look suitable for these guys.  I found some nice right-handed halbreds in my bitz box and set to work.  For this first guy, I used a right arm from the Cadian heavy weapons box holding a mortar round -- swapped the hand for the one with the axe and assembled.  The left hand started as a Sgt's chainsword arm, removed the chainsword and added a las-pistol from one of the tank sprues and glued it all together.


I think he fits the theme, now to get him painted.

Uriah Jacobus

Uriah Jacobus offers a lot of buffs for a Sisters of Battle army (or an allied contingent of Guardsmen), but I'm not all that crazy about the official model.  So, I decided to convert one up for my wife.

Great Coat Heavy Weapons

I'm adding heavy weapons to my Great Coat platoon, specifically, missile launchers.  In keeping with the Russian flavor of my Great Coats, I opted to modify the GW missile launcher to resemble something more like an RPG-7 with an oversized warhead on the nose of the missile.

Vendetta conversion

Not exactly ground-breaking I know, but here's how I do them.  For the fuselage las-cannon I start by inserting a piece of plasticard from the rear of the cowling, which then gets a 6-mm disk magnet green stuffed to it.
