Hi everyone!

I wanted to make some "Special Operations" guardsmen without using neither the new Scions kit nor the awesome but quite repetitive Kasrkin metal range. So I purchased some FW Cadian Hostile Environment torsos, a FW Plasma/Melta Cadians with respirators set and a lot of legs, weapons and accessories from Anvil Industry.

I plan to assemble two squads of ten men; they will count as veterans with carapace armour, plasma/melta guns and some rocket launchers (because I think they're awesome).

These are the first two I put together, I hope you like them:

Seamless kitbashing - the parts mesh so nicely, I might have thought it was a single kit from another range. Definitely giving the "spec ops" vibe. Looking forward to seeing more!

What is best in life? To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women. Grrr.

Noice choice in using the PCR legs from Anvil. You've knock up some really cool spec ops soldiers.

Thank you for all your comments!

About the painting, I hope to start as soon as the whole team is assembled. Feel free to suggest a cool colour scheme or to share any idea for a better conversion

I would also like to share another guy I made. The right arm is actually blue-tacked : I will glue it when the whole mini will be painted.


@Treadheadz: Yes, they're quite awesome. In fact, I'm considering to pledge a 40 £

Excellent work so far - how did you armour the arms/hands on them? Colour scheme wise - why not go for a darker version of your current IG scheme, it would make them stand out relative to the rest of the army.

Thanks

The armour pieces are actually Republic Grenadiers shoulder pads from Anvil Industry (http://www.anvilindustry.co.uk/AFTERLIFE/Conversion-Parts/Republic-Shoulder-Pads), the larger one for the wrist and the smaller for the elbow.
They were supposed to serve as shoulder pads but I thought they didn't fit very well, so I ended up using them this way.

Regarding the paint scheme, I was thinking the same: using a darker colour range. As my only other IG models are Inquisitorial (red & black) Stormtroopers and grey DKoK (you can see a selection of them in my gallery ) I think I will use dark grey for the cloth, a darker grey/black for the armour and orange/yellow for visors and scopes.

By the way, I built another man: the rocket launcher specialist. Here he is.
