While waiting for the paint to dry on my Reaver Squad ( https://www.librarium-online.com/foru...th-legion.html ) I'm trying to put together a MK1 Thunder Armour squad!
I'll be using these as Veterans in my Luna Wolves army, and at the GT in 2 months I'll be running these as a Squad of 7-8 Sternguard. Very VERY Pre-Heresy-ish!
GW however only released 1 model in this series I believe... and that one is a metal monstrosity. (model on the left)
So if I wanted some different poses I'd need to make these myself!
I started cutting up some Tactical Marine legs and tried making some for myself. I figured I'd start with only 2 and by the end-result of those descide if I'd make an entire squad or not.
Now please bear in mind that my Greenstuff-fu is very weak!
Got the greens on 2 sets of legs (hoping it still looks good once covered in paint), a start on the chest, another chest made out of chopped up MK4 armour, bit of the head and 2 shoulderpads.
The legs a bit closer
The chestplates a bit closer.
The chestplates a bit closer, different angle
So far I'm having trouble with the shoulderpads and the chestplate with the symbol on it.
The problem with the chestplate is that the symbol doesn't look that smooth, I'm kinda hoping this can be fixed by cutting away bits of GS on places where the lines are too thick and adding tiny amounts of GS where I need more volume.
Kinda hoping this evens out when I put some paint on it....
The shoulderpads are a monstrosity to make sofar... due to their different levels.
I've tried cutting up shoulderpads, creating additional levels with GS, etc... does anyone have a good idea on how to make a decent pad?
Now for the fluffjunkies... I need an existing name of a veteran squad, preferably linked to 10th company...
I know that Squad Vaddon & Squad Lachost were Chieftain squads, does this imply they are veterans? Or of any higher status than a normal Tactical squad?
Any C&C is always appreciated
