Here is a look at my latest project...
I decided to put the robots on the shelf for the time being, (i am not happy with the CSM codex for them so will have to wait and see what the new Necrons offer...) (you can see them here https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=62414
So to fill in the wait i have decided to finally get around to some IG.
The plan at this stage is for Veterans and Chimeras,
I have always liked the idea of better armoured IG infantry but the metal models are a pain to work with so i have tried to replicate the feel of them with plastics.
This is the first 10man Vet squad with Carapace.
I have gone for a slightly more hi-tech look for them as i may still change my mind and use them as Henchmen for GK..... (hence only making up the vets and chimeras first...)
There is a mix of parts to make these, scout legs, cadian torso, combination of cadian, CSM and SM arms, some scout arms, Various backpacts, most modified or adjusted, heads from across the IG and Scouts range. The helmets are visored IG Cadian helmets with respirators added, some are from the vehicles sprues with the targetter eye (again a respirator from the IG command sprue added to them)
For the weapons i have taken the piping off the meltaguns (never felt there was a need for this)
the lasguns are mostly adjusted sniper rifles from the SM scouts or the folding stock versions from the vehicle sprues.
For the colour scheme i went for adeptus battlegrey base with camo on the fabric and helmet and highlights to the armour sections.
Unfortunately my camera is not so good at close ups...
Let me know what you think??
