With just the officers left to finish off it is time to ponder what is next. After running the sums, it looks as though I have enough soldiers to field a CCS and platoon with a PCS and two infantry squads. Not many points, but better than a knee to the happy sacks. Looking at what other bits I have lined up my mind turns to what bits I need to crack on.
Off the top of my head:
- Three pairs of legs plus three guardsmen will complete my forgeworld hostile environment plasma gunners as a SPS;
- 4 more guardsmen and another special weapons dude will let me move the heavy weapon teams from the IS to form a HWS;
- I need a bunch (3) of kneeling down legs to finish off the heavy weapon dudes;
- I have aspirations for fielding an inquisitor and henchmen and using this as a way in to INQ28 stuff (I think that this aspect of the hobby represents a precipice of modelling / painting / narrative gaming), for which i need tons of bits
- 7th Ed rules / box set
So do I go all out and get me a cadian defence force which will provide me with enough stuff to complete my immediate goals plus give me more stuff for the INQ28 attack? Or do I get just what I need? Plus I need to replace my airbrush to continue with my Imperial Guard and Iron Warrior armies. Plus I'm not made of money.
Anyway, here are some pictures of stuff that I painted a while back...
A Leman Russ and a sentinal. I used my airbrush, the well established salt and airspray weathering technique, plus weathering powers, oil paints and varnish.
Proper chuffer at how they turned out!
