I have created this platoon in a way that allows me to list it up in a number of ways. I like to swap between flamers and grenade launchers in the squads. With this in mind I have created two separate special weapons teams, giving me seven flamers and seven grenade launchers to mix and match across the platoon.
As I mentioned this platoon is almost complete. I still want to create 6 autocannon teams, again to mix throughout the platoon, adding even more versatility to the unit.
The Lt and his flamer unit.
With this Platoon, I wanted to keep the themes I had started with the Veterans squads, but make them look a little more standard. I used the entrenching tool backpacks and extra pouches to give the platoon the look of a sapper unit.
I used some of the beret heads from the Max Mini range. These added a splash of colour throughout the unit.
I also used the rolled up sleeves technique quite a lot. This really adds to the more ragtag look of this outfit, and also allows me to create even more poses by mixing in catachan arms. I will post up a tutorial on this soon.
This miniature below was an experiment with a catachan death world sniper model that had become damaged. I have always wanted to try a prone model, however I am still undecided what to so for a base.
Apologies for the poor photographs. With winter drawing in, its very difficult to get a good balance of light. but I will try and improve these soon. :)
