Imperial Guard Veteran Squad 4

Final Veteran Squad complete.

achievement

I love painting, but 40 of the same guy will task anyone’s patience. Funnily enough I actually find myself wanting to do more but in a different colour scheme, and if I can find a good and simple little conversion (basically I want arms without the shoulder pads) I will do up another 30 as conscripts.

I went much further with the glow on the plasma this time around but it looks a bit chalky. I might go back and tone it down with a glaze but I don’t want to lose that brightness. At this stage I don’t know what else I can say about these guys you haven’t already heard. This is the last squad but realistically there is still another 10 alternative weapon options to do and 6 heavy weapon teams (so another 12 dudes). So I’m not as done with them as I might hope.

  1. They look great mate. Apart from the red the colour scheme reminds me of Starship Troopers. I painted 30 guardsmen last year for my mighty 77th. Even though it was laborious I found it quite relaxing. The conscripts I added were Catachan. Keep up the good work man.

    1. Thanks dude! It’s been so much fun getting them all done. I have thought about using catachans as conscripts because I reckon if painted in orange they could be made to look like penal conscripts. The catachan sculpts are kinda wonky though which has held me back.

      1. They are kind of weird sculpts but a bit of trimming here and there works. I did a penal legion with them a while back too. Not great photos but I was happy with the overall theme. I based them on the movie The Dirty Dozen.
