Huh ... Cadian helmets don't look so bad on the dudes ...

Very impressive, indeed! Loving the camo pattern - I might just rip it off borrow it for my RG scouts. whistling.gif

Don't mind if I do! biggrin.png A how-to would certainly be much appreciated... I'm a bit of a dunce when it comes to stuff like this. whistling.gif

Great models, but shouldn't the camouflage patterns on the cloak and the backpack match?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thank you! I thought about it but decided to do it this way; i wanted the Sternguards to tie up to the camo of my scouts in some way so did the same pattern. And i thought fluffwise they maybe has a little rag-tag apperance, battlefield-modifications and such.

But maybe you are right, I will think on this a little more.

How about making the camouflage patterns patchy? Explain the appearance as the Raptors trying to make the patterns of a cloak in woodland camouflage and a backpack in urban warfare camouflage- what they could get in short notice- match, but not succeeding 100% due to time constraints, as they're needed on the battlefield RIGHT THE FETH NOW?

😀 i hear you! Now my compulsive disorder or whatever the feth is wrong with me repainted the Cloaks again 🤪 im going with your line; same pattern on bags and cloak. Sorry for bad light but the colours blurred with flash/light.

That is gorgeous work. I love how the bright eyes and the OSL from the plasma coils stand out against the really smooth drab green.

The Scouts look good. I like the camouflage pattern on their clothes.
