First full 10 man squad finished!
Assistant's icon still wet with Devlan Mud.
Operator and assistant.
I'm pretty happy with these two. The assistant was an experiment in several ways; his lasgun is shortened and he's holding it by a vertical fore-grip, his right arm is a mortar-loader's arm with brass rod and greenstuff to create a RPG shell, and his pack is made of the internal tube in a ballpoint pen and greenstuff. The base is a mini diorama with a couple sandbags, a shovel, an imperial lasgun and canteen in the muck. I'm trying to give the impression that the Pact has advanced through imperial lines.
I found two old old pots of GW flesh wash from the 80's! It has a high pigment content and tends to turn things a yellow brown, perfect for yellowing metals and teeth. I wish I could get a close up of the assistant's teeth; they're nasty.
Looking at Trent's Blog, the idea of "True Scale" chaos marines resurfaced for me. I'm thinking three hulking chaos marines using the Grey Knight terminator rules would be a nice boost in the hand to hand department.
