Squad McPherson prepare for battle
After having a scour through the blog, I noticed that I hadn't even uploaded pics of the Veteran squads I had prepared for Q-con. I had built two squads, one with Shotguns and meltaguns and one with lasguns and meltaguns.
I was particularly pleased with how these squads turned out. I used plastic scout legs, Cadian and Catachan torsos and cut down and modified lasguns. I will post a short tutorial on how I made the shotguns sometime soon. The backpacks are from the Catachan and Cadian heavy weapons teams and command squad boxes.
The shotgun squad has a more scout feel to it with less bulky body armour and more exposed flesh. The lasgun squad I made look a little heavier. Here are some more pics of the shotgun squad.
HERE. I ran a competition on 40konline for the original model I made of this character asking for people to name him. Then everyone on the board voted for the favourite name (which was Sgt McPherson obviously) and the winner received the original model.
In the end though, I enjoyed making the original so much that I had to have one in my own army. Who better to lead a squad of Shotgun vets.
