Updating, more from 1st platoon. This is squad 144. Fluffvise there's no special characters here. They got a sniper for special weapons and rocket launcher team on foot for heavy weapons choice.








And the squad 317 of 1st platoon. They got plasma-gunner and in the 4th picture from the bottom youll see a guy with some metal lens covering his right eye (from the command pack).

Hmm I think I might start a log myself, Ive recently started painting up my guard army so it should be a perfect time to start
And awesome paint jobs, I especially like the regimental advisers

Here comes 2nd platoon! Fluffvise there's no characters named as of yet. To be honest the models in this platoon are among the earliest I bought (some as old as 4-5 years, when I wasnt the best painter). Some are cool but 606 squad is a high disappointment.

Platoon command squad:



Squad 501, Ive tried to make the sleves and shoulder thingys on the uniforms in different colors depending on what rank they are. Blue is among the lowest:

I like it, everything looks good. Though one thing that strikes me is the wash. On the cloth and faces, it looks like chesnut ink and just stands out a bit much, I would try highlighting more if you like washes then mix them with water, cause its just too dark I think. Otherwise its looking pretty good.

Yeah a few of the models (or kinda majority of them) are painted pre-washes period, so they will be like you said, standing out a bit too much. I'll keep it in mind for future models however.

Well done.

Continuing with the last 3 squads of 2nd platoon, beginning with squad 541:






Heres comes the cursed squad 609, the Sergeant (which is a officers model but I consider him just a Sergeant) is pretty much the only thing Im saticefied about since I strip-painted him and repainted him over again.




These 5 are fill-outs from a starter-package consisting of 5 Guardsmen. You can individualize them as they come in one way. All you can do is glue them to the base and their weapons.



And last the heavy weapons attached to 2nd platoon, coming in with mortars. Those Im actually proud of.
