    have the second guy stood up casually leaning on the bolter, and i wouldn't worry about not matching the paint as IRL the forces have loads of old and new paint hanging about so its often vehicles dont match perfectly

    Thank you guys! The issue with another crew interacting with the heavy bolter is that the bolter is magnetized and would only be used for the Salamander. If I add another guy, I need to leave space for the gun somehow. I have more bitz coming in from Victoria and maxmini, then I'll see what I can add.

    Re: Ace XT's Catachans (not really a log)

    Like many Catachan players, I've struggled to reconcile that a) Catachans are obviously the most awesome regiment, while b) the GW Catachan plastic range is only decent (HW squad) to very bad (Infantry squad). Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot of viable alternatives, but here's an Infantry squad assembled from various bitz manufacturers:








    Using bits from Victoria (most legs, torso, arms), Maxmini (most torsos, arms, sadly OOP), Anvil (heads, arms), Puppetswar (heads), Mad Robot (torso), and GW (heads, guns). Painted mostly with Contrast.

    AceXT,

    The style and quality of the Catachans was the reason I ended up selling both my painted armies of jungle fighters.

    The squad you have assembled looks very nice.

    Yeah, the plastic Catachans haven't aged well and they were bad to begin with. The core of my infantry are three squads of 2e metal Catachans, which are still great sculpts. I built another squad from command squad and heavy weapon squad parts, and now this one from third party bitz. Given that Catachan are one of the main Guard regiments, I'm still puzzled that there's so few good bitz for them. All you need is heads with bandanas, torsos with vests or undershirts, and bare arms (preferably muscular).

    Anyway, thanks for the kind words, you guys.
