Here are some pics of my latest project, "battlesuits" for my Imperial Guard army. I've been debating on whether to use them as ogryns or sentinals, but I can do both if I make the bases interchangeable The base of the model comes from some old Heavy Gear models, its basically the anime version of battletech, which looked awesome when I saw them. 4 hours after seeing them I had the basics of the conversion made and I plan to make 6-8 more of them. The theme appearance wise is to make them look a bit like the suits from Avatar, but really they just sort of built themselves. The gun is based upon the weapons used by landmates from Appleseed the movie (first one) and was made by cutting lots of layers of plasticard into the correct shapes and then glueing them together, followed by using greenstuff to do detail work. Its a time consuming process but the results are really cool if you do it right. Actually this is how most of the guns in 40k I sculpted unless I'm mistaken...
More pics and possibly a tutorial will follow in the nebulous future when I get around to making the rest of these guys.

Also commonly known as my "Abrams Russes", these are the conversions that I use for Leman Russes in my IG army. All told the conversion takes about 16 hours or so to finish per tank, but I think that the end product is worth it. I'm working on finishing the tutorial for how to build one of your own, and while there are a lot of steps its actually a rather easy build to make.
To make one you will need a rhino, a predator, and a landspeeder as well as a decent amount of plasticard. Not much putty work involved in this one, but you will still need some to fill in gaps in the final product.
The body only takes about 4 hours to make and the turret takes about 8 or so to have finished. Honestly it probably takes me less time to make one now that I've made five but it can vary, the demolisher took a lot longer given the extra work I put into the TUSK armor upgrade kit.
More pics of these guys after the weekend when I get to take some of them on a battlefield at FTW Games.
