1st Storm Wardens Squad Complete
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.
