I finished painting my 1850 GK Paladin/Henchmen army a couple of months ago, so I thought I'd post the pictures here for posterity. I did a lot of the painting with an airbrush, as can be seen with the Nemesis Force Weapons (NFWs), and I used weathering powders for the first time by making the bases all dusty-like. I made extensive use of magnets, so I could swap out my weapon load-outs on the Paladins to determine the most competitive build. Each of the Paladins sports a magnet in their right wrist, and, along with a corresponding magnet in the one-handed NFWs, I can swap in whichever NFW I want. Four of the Paladins also have a magnetized heavy weapon arm, so I can choose between Psycannons, Psilencers, Incinerators, or even Storm Bolters. I also magnetized the twin-linked Autocannon arms on the Dreads, so I could keep track of any weapon destroyed results.
I built this army with the intent of trolling the local tournament scene, and it has done extremely well for itself. The anchor of the army is an essentially indestructible death star unit in the Paladins with Draigo and Coteaz attached. In addition to this, the list has two supporting elements: mobile scoring in the form of min Henchmen squads in Razorbacks, and long-range firepower from Psyfleman Dreads. In my experience, the list has only two weaknesses: no active psychic defense (reinforced aegis--while good--will only get you so far) and it can hemorrhage kill points if the opponent focuses fire on the Henchmen squads.
It's a fun list that inevitably leads to some memorably epic combat moments, but I want to start fresh with a clean slate for 6th edition, so I've put it for sale on eBay. Check it out, and feel free to make an offer.
On to the pics! First, an overall army shot:
And now on to the HQs! Lord Kaldor Draigo (Obviously Hector Rex from FW.):
Inquisitor Torquemada Coteaz (This guy was converted from a BA Sanguinary Guard with the legs repositioned. The cape is from the CSM Terminator Lord kit (with some green stuff), as is the sneering head. The hammer head is from a WHFB Empire Preist w/ Great Weapon with some additional FW brass etch. I think the vulture is from the WHFB giant kit.):
Paladin #1 (aka Ares):
Paladin #2 (aka Helios):
