Well, with a few minutes stolen on the net, Im pleased to announce Ive been able to make a decent start on the 500pts 'Raising a regiment Challange on 40konlines Guard forum. The list I have been challanged to paint before the end of October is...
Vets- 3 meltaguns
Company command squad-2 meltaguns, plasma pistol and officer of the fleet, master of ordinance.
I have also done the company commander, the standard bearer and the master of ordnance. The company commander is based on the old cadian lt. model. I simply cut off the shotgun arm and greened in his jacket. I then added a plasma gun arm from the cadian command squad sprue.
The standard bearer is a mix of parts from both the cadian command sprue and the catachan command sprue, with green stuff rolled up slieves.
The master of ordnance is the old griffon mortars crewman. I think this is a great model as it is, but Im tempted to try and update him a bit. whether this is done via the model or a funky base, I am yet unsure.
I have the house to myself tonight, so I may just put on a film and model away, maybe finally work out what Im going to do about the hydras gunsheilds.
