Warhammer 40k has always scared me away thanks to its soaring costs, my own dismal painting skills, and the pains associated with 28mm miniatures (storage, painting, big terrain, etc). Warhammer 40k in 15mm has always fascinated me so I thought I would give it a shot.
Here is the first half of my Imperial Guard Squad. All miniatures are from Khurasan and are very nice figures. The helmet and las rifle were what won me over with this line.
|2 Imperial Guardsmen with Las-Rifles and basic armor.|
|1/100 PT-76 in the background for scale.|
|Cool shading on the face. bottom layer is a mixture of some GW vermin-inspired brown along with a folk art skin. Then inked with "Reikland Flesh" then highlighted again with skin color.|
|Officer or NCO holding some kind of laser machine pistol. Do they have an equivalent in 40k? I guess I'll find out.|
|Surprise! Khurasan's "Post Apocalyptic Government Troops in Power Armor" or as I like to call them "Not Space Marines" Here he is painted as an Ultra-Marine although my favorite chapter are the Salamanders.|
|next to each other for comparison.|
I will still need to flock their bases but I wanted to get the pictures out ASAP. I am actually looking forward to 40k now that they are in 15mm and incredibly affordable.
