Skitarii Command Squad, Before and After Paints

By Talancir
32 Favourites
My command squad, it is finished! What a glorious work it was. There was no plan for assembly other than what to use for color scheme, provided by those who have made Skitarii units before me. For those who are wondering, I do plan to make four more miniatures for this Squad: two Melta Gunners and two Plasma Gunners for the ease of swapping out weapons. As it stands, however:

Company Command Squad
-Camo Gear for Veterans (8pts), Carapace Armour (8pts)

Company Commander (55pts)
Senior Officer, Voice of Command
-Camo Gear (10pts), Carapace Armour (5pts), Plasma Pistol (15pts), Power Fist (25pts), Refractor Field
- NOTE: The Commander's Axe counts as the Power Fist.

Veteran w/ Regimental Standard (15pts)
-Frag Grenades, Laspistol & Close Combat Weapon, Regimental Standard

2x Veteran w/ Sniper Rifle (4pts)
-2x Frag Grenades, 2x Sniper Rifle

Veteran w/ Vox-caster (5pts)
-Frag Grenades, Laspistol & Close Combat Weapon, Vox-caster

NOTE: This is meant to be used as a Company Command Squad for the Imperial Guard.

Yes, very well done. I like what you did with it, but damn that's a lot of separate kits! At least it looks worth it. :)
