Default Keecai's WIP - Urban Rangers (IG)

Hello,
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...)

Anyway...
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??

The barrels of the flamer/melta (not sure what they are), did you base them in metal then do washes? Or was it something else to make it look like that?

they are meltas,
yea it was combination of washes and colours...
Black base, boltgun metal dry brush, then shining gold, then 50/50 gold and burnished gold (i think??), then burnished gold only then badab black wash at the tip. if i recall correctly, some of the colour names may be a bit off...

Agreed, it was excellent when the new cadian command came out, i alway liked the kasrkin models except that they were metal, making conversions a pain.

The next squad is the second vets squad... will try get some pics on tomo, (will be fairly similar though)

They look great. I've always been amazed that so few people use SM scouts as a base for more IG units. Well done.

Excellent work.

You have the oppressive fascist regime down pat.

Ok,
Here is the 2nd Vet Squad, all finished and ready to go.
Basiacally the same as the first but i have tried to add some more small details to them to break them up a bit.
Still the same combination of helmets and Catachan heads. Same weapons setup but some variation on scopes and targetters.
