Please bear in mind I'm only aiming for tabletop standard here and at some point in the future I'll come back to them and add some highlights, washes and more detail. To be honest, knowing what my attention span is like "at some point" probably means after I've painted my Dark Eldar for Blog Wars 3 and my/Matt's Orks for fun!
First off here's the first batch of crisis suits:
These are the "deathrain" variety that form the core of my anti-transport firepower. They'll make the most of their JSJ ability to keep at range but swoop in with flamers when they're hemmed in.
Next up is the first squad of fire warriors. I'm really pleased with how they look and I think the scheme suits them well.
Finally there's the pathfinders. One of the two six-man squads is made from the proper pathfinder models and the other is "converted" using the fire warrior kit. When the two are mixed together it isn't too obvious that there's a difference. I did think about extending the helmets on the converted ones but frankly my greenstuff skills aren't up to much:
So that's where I'm up to as of this morning. I've got the day off work today though so I'm going to hammer those paintbrushes and try and get the last suits done and make a big dent on the remaining fire warriors. Here's there story so far:
- 4x Broadsides
- 1x Skyray
- 3x Devilfish
- 6x Gun Drones
- 12 pathfinders
- 2 shield drones
- 9 fire warriors
- 4 crisis suits
- 18 fire warriors
- 6 crisis suits
