About the Project

2022's success with the Sassanids has spured me on to finish another long standing incomplete project. This time I'm going to the grim dark of the far future. My Imperial Guard are based around the Bauhaus faction from Warzone. These saw some game time around 7th Edition and then have sadly languished on the shelves with most of the interesting units only undercoated. I have a squadron of mounted scouts that I'm particularly looking forward to. There are also some Grizzly Tanks that got added in the final days of Prodos's Warzone Resurrection. Let's take stock and see what needs doing to get them finished...

The first unit is done.  This was the part painted unit of Mordians that had been started using standard acrylics.  My current style is mostly Speedpaints so I’ve had to blend my approach, some Speedpaints and some standard acrylic layering.  I started these over a decade ago so don’t have the paints or even remember what I was using at the time.  The dark blue matchs quite well to Vallejo Game Colour Night Blue.  The gun metal was a Tamiya paint and I was worried as it is quite dark but it turns out that Vallejo Model Air Black metallic is almost identical, phew!

As you can see I’ve decided on a basing scheme – very simple as I’ve got loads of them to do.  I’ll do a separate entry about how this was done next.  I also have sabot bases for each unit to help with movement and storage.  I’ve decorated these as well.  Here are some close-ups with them in the tray:

Having done well in previous Spring Clean Hobby Challenges

with my Slaine project getting a runners up prize and the year before with my Sassanids finally hitting the table in full effect I was keen to get another majorly stalled project over the line.  This time I’m looking at my Imperial Guard force which is basically a Warzone Bauhaus army.

This is what we start with:

Daddy wouldn't buy me a Bauhaus

Working from the top right across each row we have:

1x GW Basilisk self-propelled gun (painted)
1x Archon Studios Mammoth Walker (zenithed)
3x Prodos Grizzly Tanks (zenithed)
2x Target Games Strike Skimmers (undercoated)
10x Target Games Mounted Hussars on dinosaurs (undercoated)
6x Target Games Vulcan Battlesuits
1x GW Armoured Scout Sentinel
Infantry left hand column:
10x Target Games Jungle Kommandos (undercoated)
3 units of 10x Target Games plastic Ducal Militia (painted)
Infantry central column:
10x Target Games Hussars
10x Target Games Ducal Militia in night strike uniform (painted)
2 units of 10x Games Workshop Mordian Iron Guard (part painted)
Infantry right column:
8x Target Games Jaegers
4x 2 man sniper teams Scotia Grendel Urban Wars Viridians (undercoated)
8x Target Games metal Ducal Militia Commanders (painted)
APC scratch built based on Tamiya Sd. Kfz. 251 with a Forgeworld turret (painted)
Working across the bottom row from the left we see some Venners Crimean War Russian flags
3x Target Games Ducal Militia HMG teams (painted)
8x Converted Grenadiers using Wargames Atlantic Grognard bodies and arms and Warlord Games Crimean Russian heads (unpainted)
8x High Command, various manufacturers, mostly GW (part painted)
Mounted Target Games Venusian Ranger Commander (painted)
Super Heavy machine gun from the Target Games Bauhaus Bunker set (undercoated)
3x Games Workshop Mordian Iron Guard heavy weapons teams, 1 Rocket Launcher and 2 Lascannons (part painted)

So we have 120 infantry, 7 heavy weapons teams, 15 vehicles and 11 cavalry.

The plan is to get them painted and based in a matching scheme prior to the conclusion of this Spring Clean Challenge.
