Well after starting guard about 6 months ago and never really going anywhere because i soon after heard about the new codex i stopped. Well im back to it and have pictures!
Saw the Penal Lagion and since im already doing a SWAT theme(for the most part) i figured why not have convicts fight for me!
So heres the start of my army: 2 10 man squads(infantyry platoon), 10 man Penal Legion, 3 Sentinels, 2 commisars.
My plan is to have 2 infantry platoons of 35 men then 4 units of penal legion and some storm troopers. Was going to use a bunch of Valkeries(cause who isnt) but found them rediculously expensive so may just have 2-3.
Empire Flagelents with lasguns for penal legion(no color decided but thinking orange)
Guardsmen with cut off lasgun tips and Pig Iron heads for men.
Stormtroopers will be the same but all will have modifier vox casters and guitar wire to their lasguns with a scope.
Everything So far.
All Squads will look like this.
Penal legion squad 1.
Cool very yummy, I like the look of the las gun wielding crazy protestors, imagine what Sigmar could have done with a few of them in his ranks.
Painting or assembling comming up next?
Come and join the YoungBloods social group!
Thanks for the responces guys. More assembly and pictures of that coming tomorrow, and ill show you a pic of my test model i did up really quick. Main color will be done with spray gun then hit the armor and wash it all. Very simple to keep me interested and just get the army done... unlike so many others i own. My brother is also "sharing" the army so that will make it go faster. Its more like just working on 2 armies together but if one of us wants to use a lot of points then we have it.
Ok so i didnt finish everything i wanted to today but at least i have the idea of what everyone should look like. So without further ado here is some pictures!
Green is not done yet.
So Green for the visor, site bit on lasgun, and the little light on the side of the head. what do you think? i think i might have veteran squads and stormtroopers with red visors or something? yes no?
Very good work, I like it a lot! The Pig Iron heads work really well on the Cadian models.
I am not sure about the green visors, I think that they will not stand out enough over the blue helmets... maybe you could try orange instead, here is a pic which shows something similar, from the Wargames Foundry Street Violence range:
I suggest to have a look at the Street Violence range to draw some inspiration... I think that some riot shields would look great on your army.
Waiting for the next updates, thank you for sharing!
