It’s been a while since I panted black, and with a shiny new squad of Death Company to do, I wanted to do a test mini first.
In order to do this, I dug out an old old death company metal mini that he previously been stripped, and gave it some spare bitz from the leftovers of the new box – the Death Co box gives you enough arms to give the guys bolters or CC weapons, and enough packs to use JP’s or normal powerplants..
To be honest, it’s worked so well, that I’m going to dig out some more of the metal bodies and build a second squad for drop podding.
They are a smidge small when compared to the new boxes, but that’s mostly posing not proportion, as these were cast metal they aren't very splayed out to avoid undercuts and things that could get caught in the mold. the newer models are all practically doing start jumps in comparison.
Anyhoo, feedback always welcome.
