Airsoft Armoury - Ops Core Helmet Work in Progress

Following on from the MICH 2000 we have my newest addition, I have recently picked up an OPs Core Fast helmet. This doesnt need too much work but theres enough to do to make it fun, the helmet and its accompaniments was a good buy as you can see:

the first thing to do though is to spray the helmet, as you can see its very dark brown rather then tan. Once done its time to add the velcro and then adjust the pads inside to fit the new replica peltors i have picked up. In addition there is the surefire light and the v-lite from the other helmet to fit on here too. The helmet is a nice fit and the new suspension system they have replicated in it is very comfy.
Once the weathers better I will be able to spray and all being well that will be after christmas day.
hope you like.

Airsoft Armoury - MICH 2000 Helmet Work in Progress

Hi folks,
as an expansion on the airsoft armoury theme I've decided to share some of my kit projects with you. At the moment I'm in the process of upgrading all my kit, I have recently moved on to Multicam kit (more details in a later post) so with that in mind I have decided to update my helmet collection.

First up is my old MICH 200, as you can see this is a bog standard olive coloured helmet made from fibreglass.

nothing special I know but to improve it and bring it more in line with current trends and helmet tech I have this little lot to add to the beastie:

my first improvement will be to spray the helmet with a skin style pattern (the scrim is for that) before adding the following accessories:
  • genuine issue pads
  • tan chin strap
  • ops core rail set
  • nvg mount
  • surefire helmet light and mount
  • v-lite replica
  • velcro (awaiting delivery)
these should add a nice edge to this helmet and make it work well with not only my new multicam kit but will also work well with my marpat and tan kit (good for nice woodland games in summer). Will post more pics when the work is complete but unfortunately its a tad too moist to spray at the moment.
Any questions on the helmet, parts or anything please let me know.

Forge World Newsletter #328 - Lightning Fighter, Justaerin Terminators and Mk IV weapons

As always all the important bits below:

Hi there, It’s now only a few days until Christmas, but there’s no respite here at Forge World. We’ll be working throughout the festive period, and our opening times are listed later in today’s newsletter. First, though, we’re excited to announce no less than five fantastic releases, all of which are available to pre-order now for despatch early in the New Year!
Voss Pattern Lightning Strike Fighter
Following the Saint-Saen Crusade’s liberation of twelve worlds in the Segmentum Obscurus, STC patterns were recovered for an air superiority fighter, smaller and more agile than the iconic Thunderbolt. The Lightning has since been disseminated to other worlds with strong ties to the Imperial Navy – notably Bakka and Hydraphur – and production has recently begun within the Segmentum Solar, resulting in the Voss Pattern Lightning Strike Fighter.
The ‘Strike’ variant of the Lightning is equipped with a potent armament of six Hellstrike missiles as well as its twin-linked lascannon, fulfilling a dedicated ground attack role.
Designed by Daren Parrwood, the Voss Pattern Lightning Strike Fighter is a detailed multi-part resin kit, supplied with a twin-linked lascannon and six Hellstrike missiles. This model is fielded using the rules for the Lightning, which can be found in Imperial Armour Aeronautica.
Sons of Horus Justaerin Terminators and Justaerin Weapon Set
The black-armoured Justaerin were the pride of the XVI Legion Astartes. Tasked with forming the ‘point of the spear’, their attacks were directed at the heart of an opposing target or a decapitation strike against an enemy force. The Justaerin and their commander, First Captain Ezekyle Abaddon, were early proponents of Tactical Dreadnought armour, and many entered combat in singularly-modified Cataphractii pattern Terminator plate.
Designed by Will Hayes, the Justaerin Terminators set contains five detailed multi-part resin models, each packed with Legion-specific iconography. Will has also designed a Justaerin Weapons Set, which contains a multi-melta, four Phobos-pattern combi-bolters and five Cthonian-pattern power axes. The Justaerin bodies can be combined with our Cataphractii Power Fists, Power Axes and Special Weapons sets as well as the new Justaerin weapons, allowing for a huge variety of modelling options.
Full rules and background for using the Justaerin can be found in The Horus Heresy Book One: Betrayal, and if you want to discover more about these elite warriors and their Legion, we recommend the Black Library classic Horus Rising and an exclusive audio short from the BL Advent Calendar; Warmaster by John French.
Emperor’s Children Legion Brass Etch Symbols
Uniquely amongst the Legiones Astartes, the Emperor’s Children, and their primarch Fulgrim, were granted the singular honour of bearing the Palatine Aquila upon their chestplates. The Master of Mankind’s personal heraldry was otherwise only granted to the most legendary heroes of the Imperium.
Designed by Paul Rudge, this sheet of Emperor’s Children Legion Brass Etch Symbols is packed with over fifty detailed brass Legion symbols and numerics, as well as Palatine Aquilas. These symbols are perfect for use with our full range of Space Marine Legion Infantry and Vehicles to further personalise your IIIrd Legion force.
Space Marine Legion MkIV Power Weapon Set The warriors of the Legiones Astartes are the Imperium’s elite, and their officers are commonly equipped with the finest wargear imaginable. In the 41st Millennium, the Armouriums of the great Space Marine Chapters contain many war-relics, ancient weapons with histories as noble and storied as the battle-brothers that have borne them into combat.
Designed by Will Hayes, the MkIV Power Weapon Set contains a huge variety of weapons and equipment. The kit comprises ten melta-bombs, five pairs of arms, four Tigrus-pattern bolt pistols, three power fists, three lightning claws, two power axes, two power swords, two chainswords, two Charnabal Sabres, two combat blades, two hand-flamers, two plasma pistols, a thunder hammer, a heavy chainsword as well as two modified MkIV torsos. This cornucopia of wargear is perfect for use with our range of resin Space Marine Infantry, and is also fully compatible with Games Workshop’s plastic kits.
All of these fantastic new releases are available to pre-order now for despatch from 4th January – perfect for that Christmas money that will soon be burning a hole in your pocket.
The HH kits as always are frigging amazing but i am really loving the new pattern lightning, something about it is just hardcore, shame i cant quite figure out a way to get one (or two) in my list, but my faithful vulture and valkyries are enough airpower for me at a minute.
