Hi there

I've had this project in the back of my mind for years and have finally started to actually work on it. Posting a thread here to hopefully motivate continued progress and perhaps scrounge ideas from you fine folk.

The idea was for a female IG army (sorry, it's one of those) BUT with it justified in fluff by my army having been a hastily conscripted prison planet. This would also give me some interesting conversion/modelling opportunities.

So, thanks for checking out the thread, let's get started

First of all, the majority of the basic troops will be from Statuesque miniatures. The colour scheme is prison jumpsuit orange with greycoats.

The troop chimeras will be painted as prisoner transfer buses and were sourced from Studio miniatures. Here's a pic for scale. I was a touch worried they were on the small side but they look ok to me and hoping to start with painting them up this weekend.







Automatically Appended Next Post:
The only completed part of the project currently is an Ogryn/Bullgryn squad which will be represented by some serious Riot control armour (I do have magnetised bases for these somewhere)




So, the first job is to get a full squad and transport painted up then it's on to finding some rough riders (quad bikes)
