The second tactical squad was modelled loosely on the first, a mix-and-match with some Chaos and Blood Angels armour for an extra gothic feel. Heretical scrolls adorn a few of the battle-brothers’ armour while others have smaller brass decorations on their armour and bolters, perhaps spoils looted from an alter in a Chaotic shrine on one of the worlds they dropped in on.
I’d planned in advance to have a squad of devastators take up lascannon duty, so these guys were going to be my melta crew. I’m intending on building a rhino for this squad to get them to where they need to be on the battlefield so they can unleash molten death on the enemy, without worrying too much about the meltagun’s short range.
I continue to be undecided on the bases, however I am brainstorming and have a few ideas about how to make them look more interesting. It’ll be a case of trial and error I’m sure, and it’s one of the aspects of the hobby that I never used to bother about years ago; I always got by with some model train terrain flock and a pot of green paint!
In the meantime I have some detail work to finish on the ironclad dread, as well as the librarian who is creeping ever closer to being completed!
