10(ish) years ago when I was (about) 12, I purchased some Mordian Iron Guard because they looked cool. However it quickly became apparent that a full army would take me a very long time to acquire due to the fact that metal guardsmen are expensive in money and cheap in points, so I got one squad and then went back to my Dark Angels army. Since then they have been taken out every so often and had their colour scheme changed and had a few more units added though I don't think they have ever been used in a game. Recently I felt that I should do something about this and dug them out of their box. Once again I have decided on a new colour scheme but this time I'm going to change them from Mordian Iron Guard into the much cooler Praetorian Guard, using my primitive green stuff skills to sculpt pith hats onto them. Hopefully this time the army will finally be finished and played with.
So without further ado, here are the first two troopers of the Praetorian 16th.
The green bases are only temporary and will be changed once I have decided on a basing style and the guardsman on the left is going to have his belt pouches repainted to be like the guardsman on the right. Other than that I think these two are done.
The rest of this squad have had their pith hats sculpted and will hopefully be painted soon. I've also started converting some rough riders.
Thanks for reading.
