Default Cadian 7th Armoured Division

So hear we have the Imperial Guards Cadian 7th Armoured Division, I have already posted some pics from my IG before but the thread is too old to edit so I'm starting a new one ;)

(for those that want to see them they're here For the Imperium)

I have decided to call them the Cadian 7th Armoured Division after the Desert Rats in the 2nd World War. I love there history, the fact they went everywhere, fought everywhere and so on and so forth.

To start of I have Yarrick just because he is a cool model, he will rarely be anything other then a Lord Commisar but here he is (imho 185 points is a silly amount to spend on a man when a LR MBT is only 130)



Then we have my Techpriest Enginseer, I think I am going to call him Sebastian (as of about 10 seconds ago).



I'm going to re-paint the lamp blue, I blood hate yellow. . .

Then we have his servitors, I was going to call them A, B and C but then I thought that it was too boring so now they're Harriet, Hayley and Fred



C & C please guys be vicious

(also I would love if anyone had any suggestions on the bases)

For base you have plenty of choice that i can think of.

-Desert ( easy with sand n pva glue, paint with snakebit and brown colours )

-Snow ( easy and a lot of method but i use GW snow n pva, paint with white, ice blue )

-Plain or forest ( easy, using flocks, static grass, paint with green and yellow colours )

-Stony (a bit more complicated by using gravel and small stones, paint with grey and black tones. )

- City ( a bit harder, use metal wire and more scuplting for grid and masonery, paint in grey and black with some rust

-Jungle ( i found it quite hard cause you use ferns and more evoluate vegetals, paint in different shade of green and brown )

- Deamonic ( hard painting wise for a good lava effect, paint in hot colours ( red, orange, yellow) and black.

I think you should name the servitors Biggs, Wedge, and Jesse. If you are going to repaint the lamp, you could always go with a white and maybe blue wash effect.

They look very characterful particularly the servitors.

The metal areas look suitably oily.

However, your yellow looks patchy and quite thick, especially on the Techpriest's lamp.

@ troybuckle thanks for the comment

@ lunawolf I may assign numbers and role a dice

@ crabpuff I'm sorry dude I don't recognise the reference, liking the idea of the white on blue, will make it different to the blue lights on the tanks

@ Dave T Hobbit the techpriest looks nice but there was either too much shadow or over exposure the reason they're blue is because of the term blue collar workers, the yellow. . . . I was actually sat with a pair of clippers looking at it, I HATE painting yellow, I forgot to put a bleached bone undercoat on it

Little update, I'm waiting till tomorrow to get some more paint so I can spray up the rest of the tanks then they're gettin camo etc

Those Servitors are actually great looking. And this is coming from someone who hates the models. :D

@ Minizke1; I hate the servitor models too but I need them, It means that my techie repairs my MBT on a 2+ and sometime I have ALOT of them, I'm actually building another 2 (one's on the SM log and the other one is the FW Titan Tech Priest just wish I could have more then 2. Also the servitors have powerfist servo arm attacks and as the techmarine only has one wound you can take the servitors off instead

@ forkmaster; I'm actually having a true nightmare with the tanks at the moment, air guns and a fear of weathering are slowing me down
