Hey guys. Third P&M blog I have going. They will be a quick easy scheme that I can get lots of progress done and make lots of updates! My Ultramarine blog takes forever because it takes forever to paint them and the GK have a similar story. That's why Archer Company of the Urban Regiment (a scheme I made of DOW: Dark Crusade) will be my latest project. I've ordered a Battleforce and i'll build and paint them up and we'll see what happens from there. Anyway, here are pictures of the Acher Company test model. (From an older battleforce my brother got a while ago, painted over a marine. I have taken a few lesser painted marines from that and plan to do a few more tests prior to the arrival of the battleforce.)

The battleforce (being internationally delivered) will take "up to 45 days" to arrive D: so thats a shame, but I have about 10 test models and a heavy bolter team test to get done before it arrives, so hopefully they can keep you guys entertained until then
Tell me what you guys think of the scheme, didnt take long to do at all and I think it looks quite nice
Updates on the way!
LDP

====++++UPDATED FLUFF++++==== (4/07/2013)
Archer Company are one of the most organised groups of guardsmen on Domitian. Domitian was an accommodation planet, containing massive cities filled with people, urban environments consumed almost the entire surface of the planet. It initially had a small planetary defence force, however, Domitian was besieged by a colossal fleet of Orks. The PDF signalled for reinforcements, and the emperor replied in all his might by sending millions of additional guardsmen to the planet. The orks resistance gradually became futile as they were all but wiped off the face of the planet. All remained well for a while, however the ork attack had sparked additional interests from 'foreign' parties. Merely months later, reports of hellish purple blue contortions of fire were made to the Main Urban Regiment HQ, and it eventually became obvious that Demons had arrived on Domitian. The Urban Regiment, specifically Archer Company repelled the attackers from Domitians primary hive city, Titus, for weeks. However, they gradually lost contact with other Companies and collectives of guardsmen dispersed around the planet. Once again, Domitian signalled for aid. No report. No reply. The imperium had abandoned Domitian.

Archer Company, being the main force left in Domitian, issued a planetwide distress signal informing all Imperial Forces of any design to make their way to Titus to form a gigantic bastion and savehaven for any civilians who had survived the two onslaughts on the planet. Over the following months, Archer Company and the remnants of the Planetary Defence Force welcomed thousands of survivors from attacks in different areas of the planet. Most were militarised, arriving via valkyrie, or in small battered convoys or Chimeras and other such war machines. Some simply arrived in massive collectives of foot soldiers, broken from the months of destruction they bore witness to as they made their way to Titus. In time, it had become clear that although millions had perished, large elements of the Urban Reigment still remained. Titus was a full militarised area, with hundreds of thousands of guardsmen patrolling it's borders. Despite the large numbers, they felt miniscule in comparison to the countless millions that once inhabited the planet. Every year the Urban Regiment would send out distress signals and seek aid from the imperium. It had been seven years since they were abandoned. Luckily for them, Domitian was self sustainable from within, with large food storages and production facilities and mines to gain minerals and metals to construct a makeshift manufactorum. Despite the self sustainability of Titus, The UR couldn't keep up with demands and every year they grew less and less capable of maintaining capable defences.

To this day the Urban Regiment keep their brittle, dim spark alive by fighting daily to keep hold of Titus, one of the greatest displays of Imperial heroism, that had tragically gone unnoticed by the imperium. The men of Titus, Archer Company and the Urban Regiment had become grizzled, experienced and hardened by battle. Outside of Titus, multiple enemies had established strongholds in other areas of the planet. The Orks to the West, Chaos to the North, Demons to the East and Gruesome masses of Tyranids inhabiting the rest. Countless assaults would be made on all sides of Titus from all sorts of enemies. The Urban Regiment had to be extremely careful to reacquire as much of their supplies from the dead as possible from their battles, as supplies were limited. Most remaining companies of the Urban Regiment had few remaining members from the original PDF or wave of reinforcements but many were conscripts and boys that grew into the force. Archer company however had a large quantity of guardsmen serving from 'the drop' all those many years ago. Although it had decreased in size over the years, Archer Company still had thousands of seasoned, battle hardened veterans prepared to fight for glory, Titus and their lives.

The uniforms and attire of the Urban Regiment were maintained as much as was possible. Many uniforms were completely intact. The soldiers had become used to fighting in dangerous close quarters against terrible foes and had mastered the art of street fighting, hit and run and ambushes.

The Urban Regiment had repelled hundreds if not thousands of assaults on their noble city, and to this day continue to defend their last glimmer of hope for saviour in the future. Every man, woman and child in Titus has some contribution to the war effort, and the men of Archer Company and the Urban Regiment refuse to surrender, refuse to embrace defeat and will go unnoticed despite being one the most heroic selections of guardsmen in the entire Imperium.



Blimey that was fun. I'll write some more fluff when I get the time. That was all written off the top of my head, but I hope y'all enjoyed anyway

Proto: Nah because these guys are MUUUUCH easier to do. The Tau guy took hours upon hours and these guys take like 30 minutes!

Anyways, finished up this signaller in no time at all. Can't wait for the battleforce to get here!

Nice job!

The camo is great. Dark and gritty. All that's missing is a little bit of weathering.

The bases are cool too. Subtle, yet detailed

@Two Spartan thanks man, that's what I was trying to achieve. I wanted it dark but not so dark that it doesn't look good.

@Zambro. Pleased we share the same ideaologies man! Do you have any advice on how I should go in terms of weathering? Keep in mind I want these guys painted fast and look dull and subtle!

Maybe a bit of light drybrushing on and around the feet / ankles. A light drybrush of brown, followed by even lighter grey might work, seeing as your base is grey.

Just an update on the next test model im working on.

I've almost finished the HB turret
These things really take no time at all!
Also what do you guys think of this weathering around the legs, just a bit of muck, it looks quite good I think.
Tell me what you guys think!

Okay! Lots to report
I was negociating with the store I purchased the IG battleforce from because there were a few problems, but I'm expecting the Battleforce to arrive in between 13 and 21 days, so I hope you're all looking forward to that as much as I am! Anyways, back at the station, I finished the heavy weapon team and have prepared myself for a project to do this weekend (and highly likely next weekend because i think ill run out of supplies). The bottom shelf of my display cabinet im going to glue the half of the modular hill to and base it the same way the IG has. This section of the the case will be dedicated to Urban Regiment! (and may even expand if need be ;P) So look forward to the juicy stuff coming!

Pics below
PS Ive started to crop my pictures so they look better and have a more dominant focus on the model.
Enjoy!

It's a nice, subtle scheme. I like it.

@HAZZER Thanks alot matey, i'll check your blog out!
@Veteran Sergeant That was the aim, and it's easy to paint too!
UPDATE TIME!
I have achieved alot since I last checked in. The battleforce arrived last week, I went to the new Auckland GW with Prototype and Knightley, where we painted and did our GMS's (Knightleys models are FANTASTIC by the way, the pictures, even though theyre great dont do the models justice). I purchased the Lord Commissar model on Friday and he has been completed as i'm at the bach and have a lot of free time to get things done. I bought the Command Squad and the commissar with me and have lots of juicy pics for everyone! I also purchased a blue glaze and have tried it on some parts and my first impression is that it is alot like a wash, but more exploration is to be done. Sorry some pics have flash and some are pretty bad, bach doesn't have the best picture taking facilities, but i'll see what outside is like tomorrow. Enough blab, onto the pics! Enjoy! The meltagunner is next.

Hey guys
So i've decided to revisit my urban regiment IG and I purchased some custom torsos and helmets from pig iron productions to make stormtroopers, and from the first model I think they look pretty cool,
I should end up having 10 of these guys, but in the meantime tell me what you think of how they look!
