I’m staring at the poll right now, and its good to know that we have a lot of obscure units run in the Imperial Guard! I especially like the amount of people running Ogryns and Rough Riders…I may have to do an article on those horsemen.
Anyways, I’ve been getting a little work done between classes, homework, and my social life, as well as waiting for some Orks and Skaven to show up! I needed to reach free shipping on some of my Schoolbooks, so I broke down and picked up an Imperial Bastion. I’d been staring at Dave Taylor’s for the last three weeks, but unfortunately, mine is nowhere as cool as his is…that’ll be for a later bastion! Anyways, I did the same paintjob as all of my vehicles, which is nice, as it only requires three different paints: Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown, and Dheneb Stone. A couple steps of mixing and overbrushing, and you get this:
My Command Squad, accompanied by my new Commissar, survey the battlefield.
My Company Commander and the New Commissar. I really like the Powerfist models, I think they add a sense of “Oh CRAP” to the model!
I still have a bunch to paint on the bastion itself, as well as the escape hatch, the Lascannon, etc. I’m also beginning a Dark Heresy Campaign with a couple friends, should be really fun, I’ve based my character “Sergeant Jake Bradshaw” as my Company Commander before he was a Company Commander, should be a lot of fun and I’ll put my initial thoughts up tomorrow.
Meanwhile, expect some more pictures of the bastion, as well as some pictures of the OTHER Imperial Guard I painted for a friend soon.
