Hey guys, so I've taken a break from my Lexxian Sawtooths for the time being but I have been working on a number of other projects... plus real work keeps eating into my free time, grrr.
I've got another Imperial Guard and a Space Marine army on the go. Trying to find time for them is tricky. However, whilst I was digging around my old boxes, I came across an old project I started 5 years ago! These dudes havn't seen the light in ages so I thought it would be a good idea to resurrect them and post the progress on here to keep me motivated...
Firstly, what and who are they?
Back in 4th ed I had an idea to create a drop troop force, inspired by two things; Band of Brothers and Owen Rees Tahnelian Airborne. (A full page spread is in WD298 for anyone interested)
And so I invented the Tyrok Skyborne, a mostly infantry based force. The project went well and I assembled pretty much all the infantry, although in those days there wasn't the variety of plastic kits to choose from. The project halted for some reason, probably the inspiration well dried up. But here was the look I went for...
I created the grav-chutes from space marine back packs, just by cutting off the lower vents. I thought it was a great idea at the time but upon seeing them now I'm not sure. I think I'll remove them and load the troopers up with extra gear instead. I intend to finish what I originally set out to do. I'll add 2 sentinels and a storm trooper squad, they'll probably be a kit bash job. I also want to include some mysterious Afriel Strain troopers...
I'll post more pics as soon as I can. The weather in the UK isn't too good here atm. I'll be adding an updated fluff to accompany the log and explain the narrative of this regiment.
Let me know what do you guys think? I'd appreciate feedback and advice. Cheers for stopping by.
