First guys off the production line, markedly not up to snuff when compared to the first two painted, but still okay for the table. for me I think the true goal for these models is somewhere between the two jobs, for a balance of time and outcome.
The thing is though, these plastic scouts are pretty fugly – I’m sure with similar effort the metal ones will come up nicer..
The reason for building a few shotgunners is to help the squad have a wee bit more versatility, without compromising their CC too much.
The decals are a bugger to get on the extreme curve of the scout pads, and there is no decal for the 10th company badge so I’m having to freehand the other pad.
I do like this chap. his visor is very old school :) should have given him a chainsword.
Maybe one day I’ll convert up a marine to look like that old RT era metal guy :)
Here are the squad members assembled together – the four CC scouts will also add to this and with a converted sang preist could even fit in a drop pod if I so choose..
Gettingoff to a good start with the half term content.. lets keep rolling..
