Shout Out: Commissar Dave Praetorians IV Coy

The blogs that I follow often follow a similar theme. It's not hard to guess what it is; conversions. The hands on work. I couldn't care less (unless extreme anger and fueled hatred count as caring) for painting. And rules talk is a fickle thing for me, typically depending on my mood. Rumors are spotty as well. I'm a man of numbers and "supposed-facts" aren't always my cup of tea. However, conversions are the meat of the hobby for me. It's why I wake up to the fresh smell of plasticard and green stuff in the morning. I'm always on the lookout for conversion artists out there, and blogger is by far the best way to go about it. Even more important to me than conversion work are conversion tutorials; showing the steps you took to accomplish your goal. The spread of knowledge and all of that jazz. Well today, I'd like to give a special shout out to an up and coming blogger. With currently 15 posts and 20 followers, I can't wait to see this blog grow. More after the break.

David over at Commissar Dave Praetorians IV Coy is a veteran Games Workshop player and only new to the blog-creation scene. As I mentioned before, there's not a lot of content so far as he got the blog going last month. But, hell...if I could put out 15 posts in less than 2 months I'd expect some sort of dessert item as a trophy. His posted conversion work is well done and very descriptive--making multiple posts for his projects as he goes about the work. His current project is an Imperial Thunderbolt he purchased at Games Day last year due to a disdain for Games Workshop's bad habit of taking too long to put out models. I recommend anyone reading this to follow David's blog. Enjoy the pictures below for a sneak peak and head on over to the link above to see even more!

Later days!


  1. Wow I would just like to say thanks very much for your kind words. I never thought that this would happen, I started doing a blog to inspire me to get my army finished as I have so much to do, and it has sort of grown from there. I will take your point's on board and try to explain how I have achived some of the techniques.

    Again thanks for you kind words and butting me on your blog.

  2. No problem. There are a lot of newer blogs out there that deserve attention. Just keep those conversions coming! (Some closeups of that land raider would be awesome, btw. Looks interesting.)

  3. Already a follower, definately worth a look, He's one of those pleasent chaps with good manners who'll take the time to come and have a look at your blog and compliment your work right back.
