Finally finished that Terminator Squad, turned out ok despite being cut up, hacked up, put back together and generally made up of less than idea parts. Some of these are made of the remains of my attempts to make Cataphractii. The Serg looks a little Chaosy but meh fuck it, he’s going to be the body guard to a Chaplain.
Here is a full squad shot:
Some quick individual shots:
My least favorite of the squad, the beaten bronze effect didn’t come out very well on the legs and his pose is a bit shit. That and the bronze is more like gold. Meh fuck it. The free hand on the shield came out well though.
This poor fellow was looking pretty sad a lot of the time, he was quite small and hunched over due to the parts I used however he’s come out ok. Just a little hunched.
The only decent posed guy in the squad, pretty happy with this one.
This guy is pretty boring but he’s not too battered.
Finally the Squad Leader who looks a bit Chaosy thanks to the head, the Skull Shoulder pad and the Crest but whatevs, I can live with it. This is the only Cataphractii body that survived whole. Hopefully when he is next to the Chappy he won’t look so out of place. In my head he’s the BG of the Chaplain and is his replacement should he ever fall (hence the skull shoulder pad). It’s either that or he’s committed some great sin or failure and much like the NL’s used to do is only allowed to live knowing that he is marked for death anyway. In fact the whole squad could be in that boat.
His weapon is a cut down Chaos axe and @koppo
you might want to take a look at the haft as it’s the one I was telling you about as being brass rod covered in liquid GS.
You’ll notice that they don’t have a red shoulder pad on the left like all the others, as a way of linking them to the currently unpainted Chaplain and make it clear that they are “his” squad I painted them black with a red ^ and then added a rune to complete it.
And that marks the official half way point of the 1st Company. Technically I’ve painted 53 members of it plus one Dread but this is the 10th demi squad completed, 10 demi squads, 50 marines down, 10/50 to go!
