Work In progress shots

I went to Inquisitor Downing's Battle Barn yesterday for a Campaign Mega Battle. I will post up a report later but here are some WIP shots of what I am working on at the moment.

Adeptus Mechanicus Officer with a power fist and plasma pistol. I built this one a few weeks ago to lead an anti-Nurgle command squad in my game against John Bays. He worked out well and I have been fielding his squad in the last couple games I have played. He will eventually end up with a red paint scheme and metallic gold highlights.
With the release of the New Imperial Guard codex I have decided to increase the number of infantry squads in my Adeptus Mechanicus army.These two are going to be the sergents of two new squads. These two originally had pistols but I cut them off and gave then meltaguns. Later I broke the meltaguns off to use on other models. I painted these up with my Delaque heavy weapon platoon and left them without firearms so when the new codex came out all I had to do was add the special weapons to them as part of the Heavy weapon platoon. Of course the heavy weapon platoon was no longer in the codex so now they are promoted to sergents.

Colonel Elvo's bodyguards. A couple of escher juves I had laying around. the one with the club was a miscast missing half its head. I resculpted the head and scalp lock and I think it will be hard to notice it once I get her painted.
Three medics. Nothing like feel no pain to help a squad out. I am debating about building a fourth medic for when I field a third platoon.
A regimental standard and 2 platoon standard bearers. Again I am debating on building another platoon standard for my projected third platoon.
Oldies but Goldies, some of my old rogue trader Commissars. I stripped the old paint jobs and then rebuilt them to use with the new codex. A couple had stormbolters and all of those had to go away.
A detail shot of the power fist/plasma pistol commissar. I used and old Eldar power fist and added a little green stuff to cover up the eldar armor on the arm.
Here is a side project I have been working on, a Las Carbine. It is a cut down lasgun with a 1mm rod barrel and a couple 5mm strips of 1mm x2.5mm styrene strips glued together to make the magazine. I have some other odds and ends lasgun conversions I have been working on. I am Planning on making them a Vet squad or a Kill team. The inspiration for the conversion was a picture of an Arbite entry team conversion in the white dwarf magazine.
Italian machine gun finished.
Here is a closer view.
Here is a comparison picture on my scratch build and the inspiration, a Bolt action Italian machine gun.

That's a pretty nice looking machine gun. The lad's got talent!

I liked how it came out. When I get it painted we will see how it looks then.
