Tallarn Desert Raiders: Mortar Heavy Weapons Squad #2

About five years ago I painted my first Tallarn Heavy Weapons Squad, which was armed with mortars. At that time they were no good choice in regard of the rules, but I liked the models nevertheless. Right now in the 8th edition of 40k they became nearly mandatory because they are so cheap and can hit quite hard (3D6 shots at strength 4 within 48" without line of sight for only 33 points!).

Here is a picture of the two squads combined... "Death from above!"

Tallarn Desert Raiders: Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons

In preparation for our small tournament on Saturday, I finished my two missing Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons. Together with one Sentinel, which I had painted a while ago, there are now three of them. Oh boy, I really want to see them in action!

Talons of the Emperah: Roboute Guilliman aka Emperor Conversion

I am not the first and will not be the last, who transforms the miniature of Roboute Guilliman to the Emperor of Mankind. I used several artworks of the emperor and other conversions (like this one here) as a source of inspiration. My version still needs some final touches, but the main work is done.
The cloak was the hardest part and I needed three attempts to get it right. 

I am quite satisfied with the look and I am sure, that the paint job will enhance the overall impression. What do you think of it so far?
