|Seeker Squad for the XVI Legion|
The XVI Legion continues its ominous troop build-up, with a new, 10-man "Seeker Squad" joining the ranks of Hope and Change. These models are plastic figures from a "Betrayal at Calth" box set, bodged with bolters scavenged from Space Marine "Sternguard" troops and shoulder pauldrons from Forge World.
|Sergeant on the right, with a handy power fist to follow up in the event any more, direct, "hope" needs to be adminstered...|
|I love these Sternguard bolters|
So fancy ammo means fancy bolters for these fellows.
|View showing the back packs, vents etc.|
|Smaller Eye of Horus on one pauldron...|
|And a larger, embossed one on the other...the Sergeant feels like the boss is always watching, no doubt...|
The sergeant's bolter has the more regular-sized box magazine, but I also gave him a power fist in the event the target of the Seeker Squad in a given mission needs a good punch in the face on top of whatever else has been dished out.
|Seeking hope and change...loyalist fools beware!|
This posting will bring a brief respite to the parade of reinforcements for the Sons of Horus for now. I'm hoping, however, to head back to the lake later this week, and I hope the painting gods will support another run of painting, drinking and sunset-enjoying. There is, after all, always something new to add, or some unit to "round out", for a 30k nut like me...
