Mini of the Month April '12: Elite Guard

Postby Dez » Wed Apr 04, 2012 10:34 am

It's the return of Mini of the Month! So get fresh blades in your xacto knives, knead up your greenstuff, straighten your bristles and show us what you've got!

This month we want you to create an Elite Guard. The retinue for your Warboss, an Emperors Champion that resolutely guards the Chapter Master, The Ogre that makes sure nothing happens to the wimpy little Mage while he is casting. Create a retinue or bodyguard, it can even be a vehicle.

Make sure you post a Work In Progress shot (NO or MINIMUM paint), as well as the finished product. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MoTM IS A CONVERSION CONTEST, so no stock models!

BE FINISHED BY morning April 28th, voting starts on the 28th and runs until early April 1.

So welcome back, and let's see those entries! Please leave your questions here. Good luck everyone!

Well, of course I'll be entering. I've been having way too much fun with Mini of the Month to not enter. It's also been a great help with actually getting my stuff done.

Okay, this sounds like a fun one, may not be able to get done since this is a crazy busy month for me.

I've been super busy with work lately, but I'm gonna do my best to throw in here and try to get my Rhino finished for this month's build:

I've still got to do the vine and plant work around it before painting, but that's the rough form of it.

Sorry, it needs to be a new entry each month.


Nice work, fluffy! I don't think Flame Shrouds is a bad name, roll with it!

Here's my work in progress picture. My cheesy deep strike melta Honour Guard squad for Dante (There will be 5 of them, and the shoulder plates will all be like the ones on the far right.). Barely any conversion here; just a kitbash with the melta blister plus green stuff loincloths for the ones that don't already have them. Maybe more if I think of anything in the process of making them. Image

EDIT: Man, my unpainted pictures are always perfect, while my painted pictures are all grainy and blurry.
