The new IG codex have the option to bring penal legion squad. So I was just wondering if anybody got any ideas for what i could use as models?
I dont want to get the Last Chancers cause they're so expensive and too special for my part...
I'm using cadians for my main army so maybe use some catachan model's?
Catachans with tattoos on their heads and some sort of electronic collar device would be rather fitting.
The penal legion squad is a good reason to make up a unit from all of Your favourite models. Just like the Inquisitorial henchmen squad.
I would use different models, painted in different colours just as the Last Chancers and make them unique one by one. Converting, painting etc.
Yes, catachans are good, but I would add some converted cadians and necromunda models (one or two is not so expensive), or some tallarn etc. You can make up a realy impressive squad.
I'm planning on using straight-up catachans, as I understand that the penal legionaires will not have any weapon upgrades, just lasguns and CCWs. I'm currently thinking that simply painting the uniforms as orange jail fatigues, with a big "P" on the back of every shirt will give everyone a good "prison yard" appearance. Add in the occasional tatoos, and I think the bald big guys will look pretty much like something out of your local US correctional institution.
converting some chaos warriors from the fantasy line wouldnt be too hard and would lead to some unique models.
I was planning on using Cadian bodies just with bald heads, probably mostly Catachan heads. That way they'll fit in but still look different. Maybe I'll tattoo an aquila on the backs of their heads.
I built these two to represent a pair of Scum for Necromunda. Their back-story is they are two ex-cons scraping out a life hiding in the underhive.
I just used the standard cadian Legs, with the un armored tank commander body with the eagle shaved off. I did a little green stuff work to make the holsters for the guy on the right, but it was pretty easy.
The prison numbers were taken from the serial numbers off some decal sheets.
I have 40+ WoC Mauraders that I think will work nicely. I got them in the WoC Battalions, but I just use Warriors for Core. They have a use now...
