120+ infantry - been there so can fully appreciate your sterling efforts, mate! And also the ever present siren call of ‘just one more platoon….’.

The amalgamation of different units is creating some great variety in this force, and they have a cool uniformity with your basing and colour choices!

You’re inspiring to start posting group shots of my own Guard now. Keep up the good work!

This would look absolutely awesome over 120 guardsman! Always loved the Vostroyans, and fun memories of Medusa V (when they were released, unless I am mistaken) whenever I see them

Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys! Glad you like them. They will serve as a useful lesson to not give up when things are looking woeful during the base coating stage!

Thanks mate! I do too - it is by far the quickest and easiest of the bunch!

Thanks Ragsta - appreciate your kind words! I am a bit excited to finish off the Steel Legion so I can post some army shots of the infantry all together on a game board. Will have to check out your dudes. IG always feel like such a personal army too, there's a bit of us in all of them!

I am pretty sure I was still out of the game when they first got released, but they are really great models. If I could afford 120 of them though I'd probably buy a caravan or a bigger house

Progress!

Got the test guy finished to a standard I am happy with. I was hoping to be able to get away with drybrushing a highlight all over, like I did with the Krieg, but his coat didn't like it at all, so they are getting stuck with my shoddy edge highlighting. Sorry guys!





Basecoats have started on the rest of them. Painting the leather straps on all these guys will be the death of me. I completely skipped this step on the Krieg, but I felt like without it these guys were too monochromatic grey and a bit dull.



I also took a group shot of all 6 flavours of winter guard so far.





PS have you guys seen the new Kill Team starter set??

My brother in law and main 40k opponent plays orks - we will definitely be picking up a box (or two...)



Wowwww... finally some GW love for the Krieg! The terrain looks bloody awesome too. Exciting times ahead!

Thanks for looking everyone, and happy painting 8-)

tzurk,

Edge highlighting is perfectly fine for Imperial Guardsmen, and for a platoon it will look far superior to simple, plain, base colors.

Yes, Guard armies keep growing unless you put a line in the sand and say no more.

Cheers,

CB

Wow tzurk, you’ve been busy! The Winter Guard are looking mighty impressive all bunched up on their shelf, can’t wait to see them on the game board. I thought of your army when i saw the new Kreig, they look cool minis, and your spare arms should allow some decent kit bashing for the second box

120 guardsman?? your a inspiration as i have over 200 to paint for my diorama and more to come once they release the krieg box sets, i presume they will be selling these separate to the kill team box set? will make converting krieg a lot easier, keep up the good work

I like the new blue-tinted coat color on that test model. Good luck with the rest of the horde.

Thanks CB, gobert, bobbuilder and DJJazzyJeff! Appreciate you guys taking the time to look and comment.

@bob, I imagine the Krieg box will be a bestseller so it'd be madness for them to not release it as a standalone product after the KT boxes run out. I think I read somewhere that they do have all the pieces for a regular infantry squad (special weapons, sergeant options etc) so looks like they have planned ahead in that regard.

Steel Legion fellas are finally done - although I just realised I forgot to black the base rims and dot the plasma gun muzzles, so will do that before I put them on the shelf with their 100 brothers. Took a lot longer than I expected - got a bit burnt out with these, but happy they are done!

Just in time for tax return...

And the purchase of a big secondhand IG lot including 30 cadians to convert into veterans, 3 leman russes, 10 scions, a sentinel, a full set of assassins and a extra few characters, heavy weapons teams, and command squads besides.

Exciting times ahead!

Thanks for looking and happy painting everyone 8-)

That mixed winter squad pic is gorgeous, men on a mission movie poster style Finished squad looks cool and always remember: Never look at your edge highlighting on a big computer screen. It's not healthy

The steel legion boys came out great, I love the orange of the plasma gun. Good luck with the conversions from the eBay haul!

Thanks fellas!

haha Viterbi - you're right there. It is useful for picking up missed spots, but arrgh - right when you're holding them at arm's length and thinking you haven't done a bad job, boom, its like you've done it while hamfisting a crayon with your tongue sticking out.

Cheers gobert! Orange was easiest, and I know it goes in opposite direction to the "hot" plasma most people do, but it was quick and easy and I like the bright contrast agains the mostly dull guardsmen.

Since we're in lockdown at the moment and the sun was shining this morning, I took a few group shots of the infantry portion of the army so far.

Wow, amazing collection. I love the alternate paint scheme on the Steel Legion; you rarely see someone take those models in a totally different direction like that. The simple scheme works well on them and the way you capture the glare on the goggles gives a nice detail.

The variety of models here is just excellent and the consistent paint scheme across all of them really works well. That is one way to ensure you never get bored of painting the same faction - keep mixing in new models and units. Very good inspiration for those of us who want to own, paint and use one (or more) of everything!

Are those Solar Auxillia flamer models? I really like the variety of infantry regiments and that youve tied them visually together without losing their individuality. Also, I like your terrain.

Those are lovely shots, made more so by the backing and terrain pieces.

I’ve said it before but the diverse figures still knit together really nicely thanks to your colours choices, painting style and bases!

Please stop buying more old Guard, I’ve already picked up another platoon’s worth myself for the infantry swarm….

Completed army shot looks excellent! The mixed regiments look really unified with your colour scheme.

I had some winter guard as well and even at the height of my collecting I only had 2 platoons worth.

It's a sight to behold, well done!
