XV° Light Infantry Regiment of Ketzok

 

The XV° Regiment of Light Infantry Ketzok, is one of the most famous regiments of his world, has participated in many of the bloodiest battles. On more than one occasion, the regiment received over 70% casualties and was very close to being disbanded, but has always managed to recover due to the incessant flow of recruits received from their home world.

Ketzok is a hive world with a highly militarized society, located in the Segmentum Pacificus near the Segmentum Fortress Hydraphur. Ketzok also has many manufactorums providing all its regiments of armor, weapons and ammunition they need. During the event called The Plague of Unbelief the world was plagued by anti-imperial uprisings, which took almost thirty years to be suffocated. Violence and poverty generated by these uprisings caused the population of Ketzok was ideal for founding new regiments for Astra Militarum. After order was restored in Ketzok, the Ecclesiarchy imposed severe conditions of recruitment.

The commanding officers of the regiments of Ketzok come from the richest families in the world, while the massive troop comes from mandatory conscription into the lower classes.

The doctrine of combat of the XV° regiment make strong emphasis on light infantry troops, concentrating in huge units to overcome the enemy by quantity rather than quality. The XV° regiment generally has large amounts of heavy weapons due to the lack of tanks in their arsenal, the only support vehicles are there in the regiment are Exploration Sentinels. The Commander of the Regiment is Commander Colonel Lajos Vendel and his deputy is the Mayor Andris Tivadar commander of the 1st Company.

Currently the XV° is one of several regiments deployed in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade.

 

Major Tivadar Andris

IMG_1703_zpstgmsidum.jpg

The Mayor Tivadar Andris, is one of the oldest and brutal commanding officers of the XV° Ketzok, he has been in the regiment since he was a novice and has climbed to be the second in command of the entire regiment. The Mayor Andris has participated in all major campaigns in which the regiment participated as the Assault on Leporis System, the Siege of Qasey, the Invasion of Strosa and the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. It is a savage and brutal leader who does not hesitate to send their troops in waves to overwhelm the enemy with overwhelming numerical superiority. For this reason the Mayor Andris is not highly esteemed by his troops.

 

Squad Sgt. Jeno

IMG_1704_zps56tdf4eh.jpg

 

Squad Sergeant Jeno is beloved by his men because of their reputation to protect its squad, which is a rare quality in Ketzok Regiments. Always normally found in the heat of battle, where it is harder sharing the hardships endured by his men. During the Invasion of Strosa won the Medal of Steel Eagle after eliminating an entire Ork Mob only with their grenades. During the battle of Strosa took command of his squad after his sergeant was beheaded by the Orks. At the end of the battle was promoted to the position of sergeant squad. His superiors believe that if he can survive some more battles, has a good chance of being promoted to platoon commander.

A great completion scats, well done :tu: If you want to make some improvements picking out a few details always works such as the longlas aquila, plus a gloss varnish on any lenses is a quick and easy way to make them stand out a bit :)

First update.

 

Edit: Apologies for the bad photos. I couldn't be bothered setting up lights and background for a WIP shot, so I just used my painting lamp with a piece of paper as a basic background. The finished photos will be way better, promise smile.png.

 

She's about 60% done. All of the main colours (khaki, olive, skin and black areas) are all finished. She needs details and insignia, followed by a proper base and finally some weathering on her armour, weapon and boots. Hopefully I'll have her finished within the next week and can start on my Blood and Glory vow.

 

gallery_61651_10473_8862.jpg

 

As a bonus, here's a size comparison to one of her male colleagues (who also is about 60% finished) to show that she's not just a female head on a male body.

That's great work, looks quite similar in idea to my currently paused project to create a female trooper. An excellent paint job makes it even better. A topic to detail what you did would be most welcome Toxic...

Looking good there. Where are the female bits from?

 

The head is from Haslefree Miniatures' female heads range. They also have a second set that gives some more variety of expression.

 

The arms are Victoria Minaitures' Arcadian Guard Universal Rolled Sleeve Rifle Arms (female).

 

There's a bit of work involved with both pieces to get them to fit on a Cadian body. The head needs to be cut down and shaped to fit inside a Cadian helmet and the arms are too short to comfortably hold a lasgun on a Cadian body, at least one with expanded chest armour, so I pinned them a little away from the body and filled in the gaps with putty (which didn't come out too well unfortunately). I haven't tried the male arms yet, although I do have some to give variety to my male Shock Troops. I'm hoping they fit better than the female ones, but it's difficult to tell because I changed the basic Cadian body shape so much on the female.

 



That's great work, looks quite similar in idea to my currently paused project to create a female trooper. An excellent paint job makes it even better. A topic to detail what you did would be most welcome Toxic...

 

I'll happily do that, but first I'd like to make another one or two to iron out the technique first. She came out ok for the trial attempt, but I think there's some places I can improve on her and I have some ideas for cutting down the time required to make further guardswomen that I'd like to try out as well.

 

The basics though is that I thinned her boots and legs, shortened her thighs, shortened her torso, thinned the torso's shoulders, added a new belt (the orginal was chopped off to shorten her), slightly expanded her chest armour, set her head slightly deeper in her collar than a male, replaced her head with one from above, fitted a helmet to it and sculpted the helmet padding and strap, replaced the arms with the ones above, added Cadian shoulder pads to them and fitted a lasgun.

 

There's some steps there that could be skipped if you don't mind your ladies being a bit more manly. Most of it isn't even noticeable unless you closely examine a male and female side by side, especially once she's covered in ammo packs, grenades, canteen etc hiding her body shape. Still, I found that all the little bits add up to make a feminine shape that's just distinguishable underneath her uniform. where as if I skipped some of the steps I either ended up with a masculine shape with female attributes (female head on male body for example) or with certain parts out of proportion (Cadian hands compared to female heads is a good example of this, the hands are almost as big as her head).

 

I'd also like to try some variety on the basic design, maybe doing less shortening to make taller ladies and doing stuff like making female sergeants, officers, vehicle crew, special and heavy weapons crew, comm-troopers etc. Eventually I'd like to try a female Wyrdvane and Kasrkin, but that won't be for quite a while as I need to practice my sculpting (a lot) more.

Don't just bow Chef, use it as inspiration! Get some models out, try a new technique out or whatever takes your fancy - that extra step is how Guardsmen win wars after all, it's our way so why not apply that to your hobby? msn-wink.gif
