Warlord Games plastic half track & converted crew

I have had a couple of these on the paint table for what seems like months rather than weeks, although it may actually of run into a month. The crews are all converted Warlord BA British infantry, that's the plastic set! So conversions where pretty easy compared to the metal conversions I have done in the past.
The bulk of the work is now behind me so I thought I would share my first one up, I'm kind of hoping it gives me a second wind to complete the next one and then move on to a couple of universal carriers. 
 The infantry have undergone major surgery and a dollop of greenstuff just to finish them off, so now they are transformed into various positions. I have still to add mud and crud and tweak the odd small pieces but overall I'm pleased with the results so far. 
 I know they arn't 100% accurate but they are good enough for my humble collection. I will post more pics when I have them both finished and weathered, so thanks for looking 
Cheers for now Russ

Soviet WW2 cavalry

A while back I decided I wanted some Soviet cavalry for my WW2 collection. I have always enjoyed converting figures and the new generation of plastic kits has given me even more scope for me to indulge in my passion. So with the spares from my warlord Soviet infantry and a box of Perry ACW cavalry I came up with these
 and of course lots of greenstuff and a fair bit of time. I know sabres were a bit out of fashion but I wanted the classic look and hopefully I captured it well enough. Hopefully my next post will have something new in it, although with the amount of stuff I have got on the paint table it could be almost anything from WW2 to Warhammer!

GW Necromancer

I picked up a couple of GW bits a couple of weeks back and I finally got round to putting paint on one of them. I'm not sure if the effect on the rhobes worked but I went for extreme highlight.
 Its not quite finished, I need to tweak a couple of bits but overall I'm happy with the end result. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed painting GW stuff, they certainly make some cracking stuff.
