So my work colleague, who got me back into the hobby, is switching workplace. We will still see each other outside work and game 40k, kill team and whatnot. So he had a party yesterday and I painted up this heroic looking fella for his Imperial guard as a surprise gift.

 

I bought a catachan serg and sculpted him a shirt and removed some details. The paint scheme is the same as his figs made up of cadians. The powerfist was painted the same as my Deathwatch and his wristwatch got the same green as my deathwatch wristcomputers. Painted him in a day and left the base untouched so he can do it the same as the rest of his army. The pics are not the best but i thought I´d share nevertheless.

That's a really nice skin tone. How did you achieve that? The wristwatch is a nice touch.
