The 32nd Vastadtian Regiment- Work so far

So here is how the 32nd Vastadtian regiment looks so far. This Army has been slowly building since the plastic Cadians first came out in 2003.

I am pleased with how the regiment is shaping up, and I hope to finish off the current section, 5th Company (Supply), within the next year. I will then have two more companies (Both much smaller) to complete. These include 2nd Company (scout) and 1st Company (Grenadiers).

You may notice that each company has its own colour scheme, this is to represent a different period in the regiments history. I will discuss these periods alongside the pictures.

Our Pooch wanted to join in. 

Third Company- Vastadtian 32nd

This company is in the camouflage pattern used during the landing on the planet of Horizon. This densely forested world was infested with Orks of the Black Tan Tribe, led by Trackle Black Secrada. The regiment is is fighting this fearsome warlord to this day.

Third Company Command- Company colours fly behind Captain Pluskat, with Colour sergeant Blane, bellowing orders at his side. 

 Forth Company (Siege)- The 4th Company Can be seen here wearing the 40th Corps Honourary Colours, worn whilst on Garrison Duties at the 40th Corps' HQ- the Dodecahedron.  The Company on guard is known as the Stairguard, due to the many levels up to the Command buildings. 

Captain Sperick- Recently Promoted to 4th Company Commander, with his Command Squad.

 5th Company- The main supply Company for the 32nd Vastadtian. In the Standard Colours of the 32nd, during their time on Vesen, a formerly Civilised y class planet in the Horizon Sector. 

 This company houses the Heavy weapons, Penal Detachment and Cargo 6 and 8 supply trucks. There is also a veteran platoon, which specialises in defending convoy runs.

 The Adeptus Arbites are often called upon to assist the 32nd with Policing duties. The Arbites and the 32nd have generally had a healthy respect for each other.

Well thats all for now. It was nice to get to see the regiment formed up and survey my work over the last 10 years. Still a lot to do, but I hope to field the regiment in its entirety one day. :)
