Sgt. Loklan gives his orders to his squad before battle.
As promised, here is my second melta vets squad armed with lasguns. As you can see, I have used the same scout legs, however the torsos and arms are much more heavily armoured. I wanted the two squads to have quite a distinctive look, both from the Infantry platoons and indeed from each other, so I left the shoulder pads on these guys. I also converted the lasguns to look much more light weight.
The Meltaguns in this squad are cut down flamers with added space marine meltagun ends.
Sgt. Loklan- I originally had him painted in 40th corps colours, but he wasn't getting much game time as my hardened veterans for that army was all grenade launchers, and didn't really fit.
I converted the scopes from little bits of plasticard tubing. I wanted them to look bulkier, but shorted than the space marine M41 targetter.
The grunts- I have just realised when taking this picture, that I haven't Painted the visors on these guys. D'Oh!
That is all for now, but I have got a little bit more work done on my to do list, so I will hopefully have an update on my progress in the next day or two!
