These three 15mm miniatures are from "The Ion Age" miniatures selection IAF008 Retained Knight Post Charlie and are all armed with Angis Rifles. I’ve based them on a medium “Battlefront Miniatures” stand in order to represent a typical Prydian Army infantry unit. The models were initially undercoated with "Vallejo" Heavy Blue before being washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. Their hands were then picked out with "Vallejo" Heavy Red, before I treated them to a glaze of "Citadel" Bloodletter. Finally the models' weapons were painted using the "Citadel" combination of Ironbreaker with Nuln Oil.

Sticking with "The Ion Age" I've managed to apply some basic colours to one of the company's 28mm miniatures. I plan to use this 'converted' Retained Knight with an Octa Powered Sword to represent Sanguinius at the time of the Horus Heresy; the devastating Space Marine civil war made popular by "Games Workshop" and "Warhammer 40,000". The model is a little larger than the Primarch of the Blood Angels should be. But as a result should dominate the tabletop as befitting one of the Emperor's genetically-engineered sons.
As the majority of the figure's armour is going to be gold, I've started with a brown undercoat. However I'll need to paint his plastic wings first, as I plan for these to be dry-brushed, so am bound to 'mess up' any surrounding paintwork.

In addition I have assembled and started to base four resin Adder Combat Cars. These wheeled vehicles will actually form part of my 'Rogue Trader' Imperial Army, and will be armed with a variety of weapons ranging from Railguns to Rotary Cannons.
