A Sunday post with no waffle.

Before I start this post, I would like to welcome tony maher and JP Price to Inso's World. Welcome to you both and I hope that you can feel safe travelling the pathways, sharing comments and ideas as you go.

So the big news this week is that my sculpting muse is wavering. I have my secret project to finish (and that will get finished no matter what) but I am getting to a point where I can see some paint coming out of the cupboard very soon. I may be wrong... but it seems that my sculpting muse is packing her bags ready for a holiday.

But enough doom and gloom... let's talk Squats... or not-Squats.

I decided that I would quite like to fill an elite slot in my army list and as a result I landed on the Wyrdvane Psyker page of the Astra Militarum Codex. Initially, I thought I'd go for small Beastmen (in line with my Beastman Primaris Psyker) but then I had a brainwave... I could repurpose my Gowachin!

What's a Gowachin? Well... it's a small creature that resembles a hooded frog with a rat-like tail... similar to what a Hrud has. The Gowachin were started a few years ago on a whim and now it looked like they would fit in with my Squat army nicely. So here are my Hrud (or not-Gowachin any more):

And while I am at it, here is the tutorial I made when I put them together:

In other news, I have finished converting the guns on the Sentinels and they now look like this:

They are counts-as armoured Sentinels with Autocannon and Smoke Launchers (the spiky bits above the heads)... which is nice.

Finally, work has begun on the first Rough Rider:

Obviously, there is a lot of work to come... but it's a start.

Well... that's it for today. Hopefully, I will be able to reveal the secret project very soon... assuming that my sculpting muse stays for long enough to do it justice!

See you from the tight-rope over the river Exe!

Great process mate!

Love the rough rider, a cool idea for them in order to tie in with the army.
