So I finally gelled on troop themes... I'm still shooting for the refugee army thing but the troops ended up being slightly more uniformed than I remembered. Its OK though as they have a lot of personality and the variety from the ball joint style construction should be really excellent.
On the Veteran Sergeant I failed to notice that an officer's torso was in the kit... oops... next time!
These come with a lot of spare parts and weapon options. I'll have to keep an eye on the weapon mix going forward and make sure to build several of each option of special and heavy-ish weapon. Its a bit odd for heavies as most of those should be covered by the weapon teams.
A lot of work got done on the Codex for each faction which helps when deciding how to build squads. Those will go up once I've kicked them a few more times.
Each group of five came with eight heads so... loads of variation down the road.
I decided for the veterans I'd go with a "Prison Pride" vibe and have them in, or in portions of, their prison uniforms. Now that I've said that I might want to add id numbers in.... I'll leave those till the end.
The Lookout! Might have to make that an actual job in the fluff.
Washes and glazes over white primer. Some layering particularly on the gun details and on the Veteran Sergeant's epaulettes.
