So... as is usually the case, I have been distracted and have started something else. Over the past few months I have been collecting together plastic Squat miniatures... and have a truck-load now so I have started putting them together. I am sculpting the arms myself (to try and get better poses) and will have berets for all the Squats that don't have helmets. I expect that mobile gun platforms will join this army rather than carried heavy weapons... but it's early days and I may yet get distracted again.
Anyway, here is what I have so far:
You will notice that I have coated some of the 'wire arms' with a first layer of green stuff ready for the proper sculpting to go on top. They are obviously still WIP but this pic shows what the guns look like and how I am arming my Sgts as well. The two sgts with berets will not be used for the helmeted platoons so they are being saved for a platoon that has berets instead. Here's a pic of my Squat making mat:
You'll notice the weapons for the troops, that are either getting lengthened (plasma pistols into plasma guns) or have been shortened (lasguns) plus a couple of Cadian flamers. There are no weapons for two of the troopers as they will be controlling the heavy weapon units.
I also have this finished character:
I think this project is going to take a while
There will be extra information over at Inso's World (link in sig) so pop over if you fancy a meander
