Here are two WIP squads that I finally think are decent enough to put up on the intertubes.
first up is my seraphim squad. i need to put them on lower bases and do some more detailing and skin highlights on them. I'm holding off on putting the jump packs on untill I figure out how I am going ot mount them on there new bases. They are just too tall at the moment and tall T3 figures don't last very long in these true line of sight days.
I am debating doing the teeth of the chainsword a metalic blue or red.
here is the rest of the squad minus one of the flamers that broke off her base
up next is the first of my rasta themed IG. It seemed a natural fit for elements of a prophetic, icon loaded religious tradition to morph in to the cult of the emperor. now I just need to find some stencils of Haile Selasi and Lions of Zion for the vehicles.
Pictured is the command squad for my first inducted guard platoon. I only have the base colors and a bit of drybrushing done but they are shaping up nicely.
the ill fated test mini (why did I do that green inkwash!)
I green stuffed hats and dreads to make the Tanith models fit the theme. I think I might toss in some of the new Catachans for variety. They don't look as grossly steroidal as the older plastics.
Here is a view of JO Tosh. I used the Dorden Tanith fig for him. I think of all of the Tanith minis it's the most expressive and realistic. The dreads were greenstuffed and I am going to redo the paint. I wanted to give them a sun bleached red look but I think I was too exhausted by the time I got to it so it just looks like a smear now. but still not bad for the first time Green stuffing hair.
