If you are considering valhallan regiment for them, I'd definetly leave them in white and red... but then, I also really like the white scheme. At most I'd go the space wolf grey colour on them.

 

I think the highlights really make the mordian pop, although could be a slower project for sure.

People actually think your running white scars? Oh dear.
The extra highlighting helps the troopers pop. It's more work but they do look good. But don't change the armour, the white and red is great it's so unique for a guard army.

If you paint them grey people will be asking where your Thunderwolves are...

 

I say play up to it! Keep them white and model a load of Rough Riders riding bikes.

Thanks all for the nice words! You know how to make a jnr commissar feel loved! :D

Hrmm so sounds like the mob had spoken! Keep the white and red... except I did want to try something else (hobby ADHD I guess?). So the only reasonable way forward would be to start collecting a new armoured company so I try out a new colour scheme! :D ;)

I might redo my chimeras in said paint scheme. There is one which isn't at the same level as the other two and its been bugging me for a while so seems like the likely candidate for a dettol bath...

As for the Mordians. I think Ill set myself a target of 3-5 minis a weekend (when possible) to up their painting level. I need to figure out how to varnish stuff now too.

I also bought some astrogranite yesterday to start my re-basing project. Fortunately I should have enough spare ones I can just base them switch the models over to the new ones and bathe the old ones.
So much hobby C&M to do!
