Default folketsfiendes Adeptus Arbites (New pics 120819)

I've been fiddling about with different Arbites fandexes for over a year, slowly deciding which to use and modify, my resolve to actually go through with the project of painting an Arbites army gradually strengthening. Now, after having spent far too much time trying out far too many color schemes I can present the first units I've finished. I'm a sloppy painter, but I hope you will like the overall feel of the models, and that the pics will not be too much of an eyesore.

As you will see, the infantry part of the army is based on Necromunda Enforcers.

First up a Patrol team and their Chimera:







Secondly a K9 team, five "dogs" and their handler:

Hey, that is pretty cool! I really dig the variation in the models and your color scheme.

They aren't badly painted at all. I think your dry-bushing is s little heavy handed, but otherwise they look sharp. I'd suggest keeping your drybrush a little more wet, and using faster brush strokes.

I tried to start an arbite list back in second ed. I bought a few squads worth, painted half got permanently distracted. Now they mostly make a 'diorama' on a shelf next to my small genestealer cult.

I'm not completely done rekafoobling the codex, and I do not have the layout skills needed to make it look good, but if you want to I can send it to you when done. In the meantime check out the available Arbites codeci out there - apparently there's lots of love for these guys!

Cool minis and theme. You have spent some time collecting models, or those poor bastards have been languishing in your bitz box for years!
