Default 1st Viksnalak Regiment.

The Project Log has been change due to a change in name, Viksnala was destroyed along with most of the regiment by eldar, After a necron tomb world was discovered on planet. The 1st were merged with the 313th Cadian in order to Preserve the planets memory. The fighting style is often Veterans of the Viksnalak mounted in chimeras, Armed with an array of odd weapons (All work very similarly to meltaguns) they often hunt tanks on the front lines. They are supported by Stormtroopers of the 313th Cadian, Mounted in Vendetta Gunships and the 3rd Platoon of the 313th, On foot. In overall command is General Von Shnelden, the only commander of the 1st Viksnala, who often wears heavy combat armour and a respirator, due to breathing difficulties. The armoured support of the regiment lies in a fleet of 6 Vehicles, 3 Hellhounds of 1st Company 3rd Squadron, and 3 Leman Russ Vanquishers of the 1st Company 2nd Squadron.

Thats a nice potato you took those pictures with

No but seriously, they look nice. You might have overdone it on the flesh tones, but the other stuff looks good.

On those guardsmen the faces were pre painted so i couldn't be bothered to change them, Thanks for the comments though! I'm really happy with the way they came out, who knew 4 colours could be so effective!

LOL...that gave me a good laugh!

Nonetheless, you've a good start on your IG but seriously need to consider adding another color to the uniform. As it stands, it's to bland and everything seems to blend together from the uniforms to their weapons. Maybe a different color for the armour plating will help break it up. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the Advice, I may go and give them all a blue shoulderpad, Non-symbol one, but I'm painting them quickly, as in my commander took 20 minutes.

Anyway... Griffon Heavy MORTA, Also known as "Wild Wolf"

Good attempt for quick hit... [[+ Rep]] One suggestion is that I think you could add a lot more depth by painting their shoulder pads a different color than their unforms... but otherwise good work
