I spent some time back in IL, and various friends and relations have convinced me to return to Warhammer 40k. I have nearly 3000 points of Orks that need little more than paint and a few superficial repairs to return to the tabletop. And perhaps some reorganization to work well with the current goofy edition.
I will still be working on "finishing up" my historical armies, and making/acquiring terrain, but be prepared to see a lot of comically bloody-minded greenskinned hooligans on these pages as well.
So, to ease the transition from historical focus to sci-fi focus, here is an Imperial Guardsman converted from the nigh-ubiquitous Wargames Factory Persian Infantry kit. I have a bunch of IG arms left over from a batch of rough riders I converted for my brother, and they fit perfectly with the Persian's rather heroic scaling. I stuck them together pretty much on a whim (apparently 6e encourages allies?), and was pleasantly surprised to see how Tallarny he ended up looking.
