So I started work on the Forge World kits for the Vendettas, some of them needed a bit of bending on the cannons, they weren't quite straight.
|The bits cleaned and quickly tac#d together to check, you can see the minor bend on a couple.|
So being a resourceful person, I grab our trusty and totally functioning kettle, sometimes the lid pops open when it's boiling, I think that's a feature...
Anyway, time to correct a bit of warping.
|Fingers may get scalded.|
I also stuck on the searchlights from the Vendetta kit, and gave them a lick of paint, I quite like the look of them, not sure how I'm going to paint them though, I guess that'll require a Google.
I also started work on a few troops to supplement my army list, to bring it up to two infantry platoons, this needed a Steel Legion Lieutenant (Junior Officer) a trooper and a Grenade Launcher, these were all acquired off eBay, stripped and primed:

This being the season of the Melta and not the age of 1 Heavy Weapon and 1 Special Weapon, more Meltas are needed, you can never have too many. Unfortunately being the owner of 2 types of Guardsmen, Valhallans and Steel Legion, I have to get the right models and these ones are some of the hardest to find, unless I'm willing to pay Games Workshop €12 for one and another trooper with a flamer in the same Blister.
Thankfully eBay once again provides, it's taken about a month of bidding, saved search emails and buying of models to acquire 3 of these chaps, 1 more is en route, from Canada, and still cheaper than GWs crazy prices and insane packaging, I mean, who wants to give a guardsman a flamer?

And here's every model that's getting painted at the moment, the Vendetta Cannons are in the background primed and awaiting some paint, also waiting on my magnets and a drill to actually get them all installed.
|Everyone on the production line.|
