Sounds impressive doesn't it? Then you see the pictures and...yawn, old models, lol.
As expected, they were simple and easy to paint (especially as I omitted trying to freehand paint the blue shield over which the lightning bolt is supposed to go). Plus, one has already survived a swan dive to the floor while suffering no visible effect. While not intended, it sorta passed the 'loaner' army test when that happened...
Going by the one 'official' bit of artwork for the Wardens in the Deathwatch RPG book, there's no way to tell how they mark squad/companies. So I just added it to the squad # lower right leg, should make telling who goes to what squad easy enough. Given that these guys are of the 4th company, I figured squad #4 ought to be included. I had painted the gem on the chest eagle green to represent the Codex Astartes 4th co. color, however the bolter covers it, so doesn't matter I guess.
I got into 40k when I was 19, and my state of personal finances has been all but destroyed ever since. These days I play primarily X-Wing and Bolt Action, but still dabble in 40k, WHFB, CBT, as well as various other odds and ends. I am also weening myself off of a long term addiction to the EVE Online MMO. Basically I'm just your standard issue gaming geek.
I am in no way making any money from this page (though by my description & various posts, you can see that GW is making a hellova lot off of me), and it should be said that I do NOT intend to add banner ads. (I find them intrusive & distracting). This page is purely to show my love of the hobby, which has consumed a fair portion of my life. Thank you for taking the time to read & consider these statements. Now please scroll up & read the fun stuff and not my amateur-ish attempts at 'legaleze'.
