Second tactical squad done! Who wants to have a look?
Not going to belabour this too much (belabour… my favourite new word, thank you Wyloch’s Crafting Videos…. peace be upon you and come back to us soon) as the paint scheme is exactly the same as the first squad, the only difference is the black kneepad and the red nozzle ends on the backpacks, as per White Dwarf 139 pics. These kinds of tricks are quite handy for differentiating the different squads without disrupting the overall look of the army. The banners are from the magazine itself – I printed out the page, painted them following the outlines and freehanded the squad numbers.
If you look closely I kind of screwed up the transfer application on the sergeant’s shoulder pad (thanks to Whittlesey40k for those) but from two feet away these lads look pretty respectable, certainly fitting my rose-coloured recollections of the early 90s and the glorious vibrant primary colours that defined the grim darkness of the far future…
So there we go, Devastators up next… or shall I do some Orcs? Hmmm… meanwhile, Jim’s been hard at work with some big chunks of polystyrene that he’s been making a lot of mess with, looking forward to seeing that….
The vaccine is here! So it can only be a matter of time now before Warhammer World reopens, and I shall be taking these lads to visit their spiritual home for a 30th birthday treat.. Meanwhile stay safe out there, stay sane and stay thrifty, we’re nearly there!
