    The 147th Mercian Huscarls.

    So having indulged in Shadow War I've been bitten by the guard bug again. I keep trying to get away from them but they keep dragging me back in Around Christmas time I purchased some Solar Auxilia with the intention of using them as Astra Militarum but never got round to working on them due to other commitments. However with Shadow War I decided to use it as an opportunity to finally start on them, so I present my Shadow War Killteam and majority of my first veteran squad of the 147th Mercian Huscarls........











    C&C welcome

    I'm digging the gritty feel.

    @Codsticker, Actually I'm carrying on with a project, as I say I got the first two squads in January, however I was ploughing through my Saga stuff and wanted to carry on the momentum. Then other bits popped up and distracted me. So nuh

    Thanks Lost Egg

    they do somehow look like huscarls actually, lovely painting, nice use of the sword, is it the space marine scout combat blade? is the plasma pistol taken from the solar auxilla kit?

    Thanks, the sword is indeed a scout combat blade. The pistol is from the MK IV marine set

    Excellent work! To echo the others, I really dig the realistic, gritty feel.

    These are fantastic! Can't wait to see the finished kill team!
    Gritty and realistic, as guard should be!

    Thanks guys

    @The Pounder, the seven chaps are the kill team as it stands. Smaller than most AM kill teams due to them all having carapace. But I'll be finishing up three more to make them a legal squad for 8th Edition.

    I agree with what the others have said about the gritty look- they look like veterans of the underhive . I could see a lot of people getting into Kill Team if all you need is 7-10 models.

    Opinions required. Do you think it that these guys would be acceptable as a Scion force? I ask as the Index Imperium 2 has no option for upgrading Guard Veterans with carapace at the moment. I feel that due to the heavy armour and unusual Lasgun magazine they could easily represent Scions. Thoughts?

    Absolutely! They look elite and heavily armoured to me.

    I concur. Who knows what forge world these scions got their equipment from? .
