So, my Imperial guard army being desert themed, it has seemed obvious to me for a while that I needed to add a few Tallarn, and ever the optimist I was holding out for FW to make some more.
Imagine my shock then to discover the Tallarn models were among those being retired. I picked up a few in those final days, and have put them together to make the best of what is available.
This chap represents a stand in for the officer of the fleet for my IG desert army – this because “On Arrakis, it’s desert power” if you get my drift.
It’s the Tallarn Tank commander with a set of slightly oversized cadian legs to prevent him being a disembodies torso. I think he’ll stand in quite well once painted.
I’m clearly going to have to try and give him blue eyes tho.
