I think the plasticard visor looks pretty good as it is but the two "pegs" sticking out either side are maybe protruding a bit too much if you know what I mean? Perhaps you could remedy this by either using shorter pegs, or having a shorter band that terminates at the "ear nodes" so it looks as though they are housing the visor bolts. Sorry about the dodgy terminology, I realise now that my vocabulary falls short when it come to discussing visor anatomy!
By the way I've just had a look at some of these penal legion fellows and they are looking great. Particularly the Ogryn.
Cheers revo, I agree about the pegs, suffice to say that it is no longer an issue, see below.
You should name him Geordi.
Or - Make him cry, half self-esteem issues and a complete lack of authority and name him Scott Summers!
Don't worry lads, air filter face and the whingy bitch x-man aren't needed. I ended up GS'ing some heads up anyway. Not sure if the eye covering will be cloth or metal yet, see what happens when I paint them. I also added a bit of GS to the top of the helmet just to make them a little different. Paintwise, like the Penal Legionaries it will be a mix of grey and blue but I'm thinking instead of white possibly using yellow instead, just to make them fit in but also look a bit different (as they should).
And a view of that top band:
Not the greatest job in the world but then again they were made out of the random contents of my bits box and they look different enough from the Penal Legionaries to make it clear they are different.
As for their squad leader, well I have two options and will depend on what the list is:
One is a classic Pysker Mini and the other is a Custodian I converted out of cadian legs and a classic commissar tank commander.
I think they look good with both and it depends on if I wanting to run a Company Command Squad as an HQ or a Primus Psyker and a Lord Commissar. Nice to have options. I don't have a problem with either fluffwise, if I am using the Primus Psyker mini I just say he's not a pysker, all the gadgetry and the staff are actually wards to protect his squad from attacking him. Or something like that. The advantage of creating this squad with junk from my bits box is that if I come across other random IG bodies (as you often do if you get a lot of your minis second hand like I do) then I can very easily just shove them in this squad. Boom happy enough with it.
