Ok, for anybody who has see my recent projects in the P and M section, you already know that I am gearing up to make a new IG army from scratch. The codex was just filled with too much goodness and tasty options... how can anybody refuse?

I bought a 20 man Cadian box from the LGS while waiting for all my online purchases to arrive. So far I only have one sergeant completely painted to finish. I am doing these kinda sloppy, but I have a lot of infantry to make table-ready.

Here he is. I still need to finish the stormtrooper proxies I converted, as well as the other 19 guys that came in the same box as the sergeant, before my Battleforce box gets here this week.

As you wish.

I got a little carried away with the sentinel sprue.... in fact, I got carried away with all the models I assembled last night. They just come with so much cool stuff! I decided my IG was going to be more fluffy than competitive right now, and I made models that were just plain fun to make!

Company Command Squad: Commander with powerfist, Standard Bearer, Medic, Voxcaster, and a Sniper for good measure. (I plan on sticking a mortar in there anyway, so some of the models were just made because I liked how they look. Like the sniper.)

Armored Sentinel: Outfitted to kill light tanks and transports. Autocannon, HK missile, chainsaw attachment and an extra spotlight for good measure.

Heavy Weapon Teams: Mortars. I looooooove mortars. (Former 11-C in the US Army, aka mortarman). I have some good ideas on modeling them more realistically. (One guy standing on the baseplate, setting the plate. When firing the first shot with a mortar, somebody has to stand on the baseplate to ensure that the recoil is directed down through the baseplate into the soil so the baseplate doesn't bounce back up and mess up the traverse and elevation. It only takes a shot or two before the baseplate wedges itself into the ground, due to its flanges, and then the mortar is set and won't bouce around.)
I could also put some empty wax tubes around the mortar, from opened mortar round canisters. It really is neat having inside knowledge of how the weapon works (which is why the lousy bipod bothers me). This must be what it is like for former tankers when they buy a Leman Russ.

That's all I got so far, check back later for updates!

I like what you've done so far. The respirators really add character to the models, especially in the commander and sniper.

For the painting aspect, it looks like it's really only the face that brings the model down. I find a quick wash or two of Ogryn Flesh helps with open areas of flesh.

Looking forward to more.

Yeah, I figure the respirators will blend well with the pig iron heads I am still waiting on.

The face on the sergeant really puzzles me. It is just not photogenic. It looks fine in person, I have hit it with 2 washes of ogryn flesh already, it just doesn't pick it up on camera (it might be the white balance setting).

I like the gorget on the sergeant above. Is that part of the Cadian command squad set or did you make it?

Ooh nice. I have an idea for an army where every model has a forge world respirator head and carapace armor. By the way is carapace armor still available to all troops in the new codex?

To elaborate (correct me if I am wrong, doing it off the top of my head), only veterans and command squads (both company and platoon) have the option to equip to carapace armor. The veterans can buy it as a doctrine, and the command squads can purchase it as a wargear upgrade. Normal Infantry platoons cannot benefit from carapace.

I thought for a moment the stubber on the copula was fused to the turret which gave me an idea for something of my own. But you need to hurry up and get some of these things painted. NOW!

You are very astute, for the stubber IS glued to the copula. I was having issues with the pintile mount, and got frustrated, and thus mounted the stubber directly. You are in luck, I did stay up until 2 AM painting my storm troopers last night, so I will get some pics up of those as soon as I get some coffee (still 8:30 am here).
