Sorry for double post
Do you think i should paint the berets red on my veterans?
Well stuff looks nice as usual.
The question about using the selected heads as storm troopers, I think could work just fine. I would personally use a head with a respirator mask though, as all pictures I see with them, they usually have masks.
As for the berets color.
I would go for what your basing your army on really. Red berets are famous UK soldiers. If you like your soldiers to honor them, so go for it. People will know that they are "elite".
But if your going for more common soldiers who have berets, I would go for either black or some color similar to your color scheme. I went for green on my berets.
Definitely not red berets, cherry berrys as the army refers to them, are reserved for the Royal Military Police. No one likes the RMP.
Maroon for Paras? D. Green for Commandos? Sandy for SAS?
I keep on forgetting that the Cadian command box has respirators. Usually people are not using them, so if you have some friends who play Ig, this should not be a problem.
They all looks very well !
Ok so very quick turnaround recently
I have managed to complete my Battle psyker squad
Put berets onto my veterans and fix the special weapons team heads
Special weapons team:
More to come
I can only repeat: I like your color selection.
Is perhaps at this desert camouflage .... ;-)
Those heads turned out better than I expected. Thanks for the pics update.
So not a completed model/unit update but we all know that rush when you just want to see all your army on the table just to admire, well i got that today so i thought i would share
In the 2 bags on the left - Thunderbolts :-)
As to what i have been upto, i had been repairing little bits of my army and tidying up and basecoating my leman russ.
Also been building a few models to complete the remaining squads i have and also been planning and slightly started what i think will be very heavily converted stormtroopers. Only built the gun so far and yet far from completed but here you go, what do you think?
Thank you as always
Very cool stuff. Always love seeing elysians. And the colours look cool. Keep it up!
The Gora Reclimation - Yet more Imperial Guard
I like the look of the Kasyrkin's gun, though I'd personally go for a better scaled sight, the SM ones are a tad on the large side.
Those veterans look great, the beret heads with the elysian bodies work really well. This is going to be a good looking army
Been a while, some slow progress but that’s what I guess you get when you try and finish three leman russ all together
Just one of those times at the moment, where it seems like I have done a lot but nothing to show for it, but anyway here it is from left to right:
Lieutenant Jentz, Snr. Sergeant Wilheim and Sergeant Jenas
To be continued
Ive also been making some very slow progress on my stormtrooper conversions. As I want them to be perfect, also the fact once ive got enough of each piece. They are being sent off to be cast
Anyway here is the body and legs and a remodel on the gun
And sorry for the poor quality picture of the gun, basically all I have done from the last one is put a better scaled scope on it
So what do you guys think?
So after rereading through the first white dwarf i had ever bought, WD266. Inspiration came to me for my count as version of 'Captain Al'rahem' from Keith Stockburn's Catachan air cavalry army. The army is inspired from the film Apocalypse now and in that character he gave his command cowboy hats to wear. So i thought i should do the same
so i managed to find this little tutorial and off i went to try my hand at sculpting
sorry for the poor quality of pictures, bad light at this time of day
Here are the results what do you think?
So havent updated recently, still blodding along. This has turned out to be alot harder now since im back at college now. Still only have 2 Vendettas and a salamander to paint until my 1500pts is complete...so this must mean i have completed my company command
Can trace is family tree back all the way to two of the starting twelve planets in the Selenian system and it is drapped in history. Recently he has been awarded 'The Merit of Terra' and has become well respected by his men and by the Adeptus Astartes
Recently promoted from Lieutenant. Mothered to a Tallarn and Fathered by an Attilian his genes speak great things of this young man but knowone knows how Selena became his adopted home world just like so many people. Originally treated with suspicion, every man or women who has ever fought alongside him has had a change of heart
Captain Tobi will be a 'count as' Captain Al'rahem
So what do you think?
