Okay finally I am getting my project started. My aim: revive my beloved Steel Legion.
I once got distracted by Cadians but didn't like painting them (there is an unfinished log here somewhere). So I have chosen Hives Hades as the place where my regiment is going to fight (don't know a good number yet) because it is pretty much hell on earth. In this Hive and around it you will pretty much find everything worthy of being described as the horrors of war.
Okay enough of that. Besides the regimental number I don't know yet I am not sure where I want my regiment to fight.
I have thought about the trenches around the city, within the city, hydroponic gardens which might have survived in some level of the hive and so on.
At the moment I am aiming for six test miniatures and then pretty much let voting and advice from friends decide which one to take.
2 I have finished so far:
The dude one the left represents a legionary fighting in the trenches around Hades during the season of fire (I guess Orks don't care if there is lava around), inspired by Firefly browncoats. The fence at the base isn't painted yet as I want to wait till I have all miniatures painted before I start experimenting with pigments.
The legionary to the right is more a Flecktarn-Cityfight camouflage theme. He will get some rust effects using pigments on his helmet some time. He is inspired by the US Marines camouflage which I will try on another miniature.
This is the one I am currently working on. I am not quite happy with his camouflage and will rework it completely drawing longer stripes on his coat.
So any suggestions, comments, criticism and spelling corrections are welcome.
