Disclaimer One- Painting progress has certainly been slowed by my son and I adding a puppy to the mix. My three year old selected and named the now 14-week old Chihuahua-Poodle puppy… ‘Andi the Girl’. Chipoodle? Poohuahua? Anyways…
Disclaimer Two: This is far more of a strange factoid then anything else. It occurred to me that in spite of having been (on and off and on and off again) involved with 40K since the Second Edition. In all that time I have never actually completed painting a member of the Adeptus Astartes until now.
Ironically enough, they are not even for me but for a local store.
This particular Kill Team originated from the ‘Fangs of Ulfrich’ starter set. While some might suggest, based upon the accessories that they were intended to be Space Wolves. As I am likely to disregard any accessories and box-art and due to my appreciation for all things Forge World, they swiftly became Red Scorpions.
This allowed me to break out some old copies of Imperial Armour books such as The Amphelion Project and the original Vraks Trilogy. These reference books in addition to some creative interpretation for including a red face-mask for the Sergeant led to the final results.
Obviously, as the included scenery was industrial in nature, they were painted yellow to match the Forge World Nester esthetic I utilized for my Skitarii projects.
As always, questions, concerns, comments and existential conundrums are always welcome.
