Today, I’m sharing my finished Renegade command Squad, who will accompany my army leader (which will vary depending on chosen doctrines) in my battles. This unit was made for only £6, and was an experiment to see how much potential such a basic clip-together box set had. The results speak for themselves.
I wanted to keep the general theme of the army lots of dirty browns, greens and greys, an uneven mix of civilian clothing and military. So whilst each model has a different appearance, they all share a common colour pallet.
The banner bearer carries a defaced Imperial banner. This was done by painting the banner as if it were an Imperial one. I added a winged skull in the centre, with honour markings below. Then the blood came out. The chaos star was intentionally painted to look crude, as though the new owner of the banner coated it in the blood of the previous owner. The blood was made up of Tamiya Clear Red, and Vallejo Black, to a ratio of about 3:1.
Now that is squad is done, I will be moving on to the next unit: either some of my basic goons, or one of the two armoured vehicles that need some love and attention. Plus I still have my top-secret project to work on. More details on that soon. P.S. Can you spot it in today's post?
