Hence, the Dog Soldiers. I needed a basic Grey Knights Troops choice to use as Allies for Mordrak and Ghosts, but I'm not all that keen on running actual Grey Knights. I thought I'd try to kit-bash something a bit more utilitarian and common. Perhaps an elite unit for the Xenos Inquisitor character I've been working on.
I'm not done with the models, but I started weathering some from the boots and greaves on up.
The Chimera is obviously not an option, but I'm painting it up as an Inquisitorial Chimera - I'm sure these guys will hop in from time to time.
I'm going to try something a bit different on the power weapons. I just don't know how. I'm going to have to watch some Les Bursley videos from here, methinks.
I've got a ways to go, but this has been a really fun project. It's nice to have steps where making a mess is not only expected but required.
That's that. Now I'm off for an Apocalypse game of somewhat epic proportions. I'm siding with Big Whit, the Tim That Can, and the Card Pimp in Question to take on The Hoff and Just Doug in a 15K plus battle of Chaos versus Eldar.
Glorious! Many hugs and gropings to follow, I'm sure.
