I was inspired by Exilesjjb's tutorial over at WAMP on using Army Painter to quickly paint up a group of Cadians, so I decided to give it a whirl. It provided a great shade, but it felt incomplete to me so I took the time to fully work up the highlights and work on all of the details.
I used a standard Shook Troops box and one of the cheap heavy weapons boxes to create a squad with 2 different heavy weapons options- missile launcher or autocannon.
Rocket Launcher Team Voting Link
The fence was made from balsa wood and I used Stern's techniques to help me design and build the base.
Autocannon Team Voting Link
The cinder block wall was built out of styerene overlaid with Epoxy Sculpt that I sculpted and textured.
Cadian Shock Troops Voting Link
Also, here's the voting link for the Command Squad.
The "Cadia" and "VIII" on the banner were done in freehand, but all the other text was done with custom water transfers. I stuck with the same base design for this group so they would match the other squad. I also added the skull servitor so he's looking over the medic's shoulder, just to make sure he's doing things correctly.
These guys are for sale, so here are the auction listings if anyone's interested:

Cadian Command Squad
I'd love to know what you guys think.

Those are pretty sweet looking. The banner is particularly nice and the bases for the heavy weapons are excellent.

Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
I think my only problem with these is the unpainted Balast.. I know it is multi-colored, but somehow it just doesn't look right..
Everything else is very stunning.. Is that Banner free hand?
The banner is one of the standard ones that comes with the command squad. I freehanded the lettering of the two main panels- "CADIA" and "VIII," for the rest of the panels I used some custom water transfers- printed some text in 1 pt font.
