Ok, I FINALLY got some new batteries for my digital camera, and I FINALLY managed to take some respectable pictures of my Drookians (Did I mention? I have six now). I am going to go to bed now, but I will post the pics tomorrow. I really like how they've turned out so far, and I can't wait to make more.

Wow, that looks really good.

Nice green stuffing, and it´s obvious from the HB guy that you´re getting more confident with the theme as you go.

If they were to go to battle on a windy day, who would suffer more, the Fen Guard, or their opponents?

Anyone who has seen Braveheart would know that it doesn't really matter if it's windy or not...as long as there is an enemy to taunt

Are you going to model a regimental musician? There's a little known rule that states Bagpipes give negative -2 moral modifiers to Eldar.

Excellent conversions

Your side is always the "will of the people" the other side is always fundamentalist, extremist, hatemongers, racists, anti- semitic nazies with questionable education and more questionable hygiene. American politics 101.

Probably somewhere I shouldn't be

I don't envy you the job of doing it to a whole IG army though! Have you thought about pre-casting sections of kilt (3-4 pleats per piece) that you could glue to the model on the front and back - it would reduce the amount of GS work.

Or if you're feeling really confident, make some 'master legs' and cast them up wholesale - there's a P&M thread about someone who did something very similar,

This is pretty much exactly how I imagined the Fen Guard to look. Excellent job.

Love the use of the SM arm for your C.O. I did the same thing with a Powerfist. They just work so well for I.G. Bionics. The normal Bionics just look so... scrawny.

I had a momentary giggle at seeing the gas masked trooper wearing a kilt. I don't know entirely why, but for me, gas masks just scream out 'greatcoat', rather than 'whatever I don't want to breathe has a straight shot at my dangly bits'.

That minor gripe aside, I think that they're fantastic. Great sculpting work!

Guard in kilts? Awesomesauce.

Any tips on greenstuffing the kilts?
