Those models look awesome Patsy!

What I have done to eek out extra heavy weapon troopers, is to use plastic guardsmen from the normal cadian box to bulk them out, and add some extra variety to what you can field.

They look great! I wish my HW teams had that much character!

Patsy casts Threadomancy.

I've started a little side project.







The cuirassier was a massive pain in the ass, and he's still WIP. I haven't decided on what colour their gas masks are going to be yet. I need 9 more.

The tanks and heavy weapons teams are impressive! :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

Like what your doing with the gas mask guys, too.  I see you got some WF Greatcoat bodies in there, but where do the arms and gas mask heads come from?

 Are they Victoria lamb arms?
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Cheers. Arms are Victoria Lamb: http://victoriaminiatures.highwire.com/productsarms-1?pagesize=12&page=2
Oddly enough I can't find them in the shop now - they're exactly like the Dress Uniform arms, except with shoulder plates instead of epaulets.

Heads are Adrian helmets from Secrets of The Third Reich http://www.waylandgames.co.uk/secrets-of-the-third-reich/head-packs/french-adrian-helmet-heads-gas-mask/prod_10368.html

They're technically a bit small for the bodies, but that doesn't really show when they're covered in gas mask and helmet. Bodies are Wargames Factory Greatcoats.

The cuirassier's legs are from the WHFB 6th ed. starter set, chainsword with arm is from a Commisar model, and the horse is from the Pistolier kit. Everything green in the WIP pic is sculpted.

Done!

Went for a sickly green-beige as a tertiary colour, instead of tan.

I've come across an aesthetic dilemma. Every Space French army needs a WW1 machine gun themed heavy bolter, but which one is better?
 






No. 1 is a stubber to be converted into a Chauchat-like LMG with iconic magazine should I settle with it. Pros: Looks even cooler with magazine, appropriately themed. Cons: A bit weedy, and not really a bolter. Also, the real life Chauchat was an irredeemable piece of shit, which will affect my sensibilities.

No. 2 is a bolter with an extended, WW1-looking muzzle, on tripod. Pros: Looks formidable, and like an actual bolter/heavy MG. Cons: Looks like a bolter with a muzzle slapped on, will demand work.

No. 3 is a standard tripod  heavy MG look, can be converted to be magazine-fed or belt-fed. Pros: Appropriately themed. Cons: Weedy, not a bolter.

All Cadians are placeholders for Space French.

Number 2 would be my clear favorite for your theme.

Number 2 for sure, but why not clip the barrel off the HB first?

I agree, number 2 is great.  The other two look like stabbers!

Well, they are just stubbers, but they look like more traditional MGs than a Heavy Bolter does and can count as one.

Sacrilege!  :-o I don't do that to OOP models. I will, however, be able to cast it in resin and convert that.

Anyway, it's unanimous. #2 will be chosen.

I still want stubbers in my army, though! Any ideas for counts-asses?

Not a good solution by any means, but Inquisitor henchmen can take storm bolters, and a heavy stubber could be roughly equivalent. Wrong base size of course.

Apart from heavy bolters there really aren't appropriately based models in the guard dex for the look you're after. One of the forge world supplements might let you take heavy stubber weapon teams, a Krieg list or something, they like their stubbers

I thought about plasma guns, but that's kind of lame. Maybe I can take DKOK allies in my regular army.
