Imperial Guard - Commissar



This fellow will accompany my footslogging Infantry Platoon to keep them from running away. For game purposes the power fist will simply count as a power weapon.

Have I mentioned that I hate photographing anything I've hit with a wash of Badab Black (no matter how heavy)? It always end up looking worse in the photos than it does on the table.

Imperial Guard - Officer of the Fleet & Infantry Detail

After playing with a similar list for my Guard for about a year, I've decided to mix things up a bit with a few changes - primarily a Manticore, an Officer of the Fleet and a Commissar for my foot-slogging infantry.

Officer of the Fleet:


I've also applied a liberal amount of Devlan Mud to all my infantry to dirty them up in a similar fashion to the vehicles in my army.

3. Drybrush with Codex Grey:


4. Drybrush with Astronomicon Grey:


5. Apply a wash of Badab Black and tidy up the sides of the bases with Charadon Granite for the final result:

Slaaneshi Chaos Marines - Combi-Flamer Conversion

I made this from a bolter and flamer from the Chaos Space Marines box set to equip the Champion on my unit of Slaaneshi Chaos Space Marines.

I was originally going to use a hand flamer, but I had nothing to lose by giving it a go with a regular flamer.

Needless to say I'm quite happy with the results.
