28mm Penal Legion Finished!

 
A few days ago I posted some "bare metal" pics of my converted 28mm Penal Legion Troopers using parts from GW, Victoria Lamb and Maxmini. Now they are done!

Over the obligatory black undercoat I used colours from the Citadel range; the orange jumpsuits are Blazing Orange* over a base of Mechrite Red* foundation.

Their combat pants are Regal Blue* highlighted with Shadow Grey*.

Collars are Boltgun Metal*; lasguns are edge highlighted with Mechanicus Standard Grey; stocks are Bestial Brown* highlighted with Vomit Brown*.


Belts and pouches are Scorched Brown* highlighted with Bestial Brown*.


 Boots are lightly drybrushed with Mechanicus Standard Grey.


Lenses are layered Mechrite Red* and Blood Red* with a Skull White* dot, brushed with glossy 'Ardcoat*.

Skin is Dark Flesh* highlighted with Dwarf Flesh*. Gloves and masks are Mechanicus Standard Grey highlighted with Fortress Grey* and Space Wolves Grey*.

Then the whole works was washed with a mix of Devlan Mud* and Gryphonne Sepia*.

*Discontinued colour from the old Citadel paint range. Yes, this was all of the colours I used bar the Mechanicus Standard Grey "base" from the new 145 range. I was actually very pleased with the latter; it went on smoothly with excellent coverage. Recommended.

Damn nice, great orange and love the numbers on the back the most but then I am weird!

Great work - as usual, Dallas!

Greg B said...

Is there a prisoner 24601 in there?

Dallas said...

Haha, no... they're all "Beagle Boys" numbers - combinations of 1, 7 and 6...

Those turned out great Dallas! Like others mentioned, I really like the numbered orange chaingang suits. (You could do one headless, with the collar having just been 'detonated'). ;)

You have a sick mind Mr C... but then again, one less head to paint...
