Thanks again, Gilbear. And you're right: I'd put one of these Tacticals side-by-side against one of the Assault Marines I did a couple of days ago, and the addition of just a little colour adds so much to my eye.
On to the next squad then, and what Raven Guard army has enough Scouts? I'm going for snipers this time, and though they're just held together with Black Tack now, 62Sqd is starting to come together:
The last squad of scouts I did used modified Chaos Marine helmets (heresy!) for an aggressive look, but I think Scions heads, as others have used, work better for a more 'thinky' kind of Scout.
I'd found Brother Chaplain Kage's excellent tutorial on making cloaks and capes from tissue a while ago and I've been looking forward to trying it for scout cloaks. The nice thing about using tissue is that you can easily do a test run by just adding water and not PVA glue whilst you get the hang of it. I definitely need to practice more on the hoods I think. The one on the left reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood.
I'm also going to modify the Lasguns into sniper rifles, and I've ordered new rods to replace the barrels. I think I'll need to invert the stocks to make them more poseable. I'm trying to think of a way to make it look more like a bolt action weapon.
I can't go any further until bits arrive, so in the meantime, any ideas welcome!
