Since I've been posting here more often, I figured I'd have a thread to keep track of my Guard.
First off, a few things about the Kharaa system. Most of these details tie into something that I’ve got in the pipeline.
The only inhabited world within the system is Kharaa II (just call it Kharaa). It is a harsh Jungle world with its fair share of dangerous creatures. But the true danger to humans is that much of the flora is toxic to humans. Because of this, most of its population live in large cities where the air is made to be safe enough to breathe. Fights withing the jungle require respirator masks. The system is located in Segmentum Obscurus, not too far from the Fenris system. Although the other planets of the system are uninhabited, there is a Deathwatch Watch Fortress hidden on the moon on Kharaa IV
On to the models. The majority of what I’m showing today was done by me. I have some ongoing work being done by Den of Imagination (DOI) which I will also post as it is completed, though you can see my avatar for a sample. I’ll be VERY clear about what is my work and what is theirs. While I still want to show the models off, I certainly don’t want to take any credit for them.
I’m going to start off with some general pictures. I have more models than this, but I put in what was convenient to grab at the time. About half of the basic troops here were done by DOI (It was their lowest level, I wanted to get some troops done as a test order). A good amount of the stuff isn’t finished here but that’s what update pictures are for. I've also noticed that I didn't put in in a lot of the hull weapons (I'm magnetizing).
Next are some closeups of some of my more complete models, though the vehicle still need some touch ups for me to call them finished. It gives to a good idea of my paint schemes.
Finally, I want to show how I’m painting my veterans. While the guardsmen go on the assembly line, I try to spend a lot more time on these guys. I actually try to give them faces and highlights as well as giving them nice bases. I think at least some of that extra time paid off.
I’ll try to be better about cleaning of the dust in future posts. It really show up at these resolutions.
