IG on Parade

Well I suppose it's about time to put up a photo of my entire army, and here it is. Dagger Company, 313th Fantoma Drop Troop Rgt. with supporting elements from the 3/73rd Armored Rgt. and 504th Special Assault Rgt.

As you can see there is still work to be done, I have 50 line troopers to paint, a platoon HQ, and a lot of bases to finish. In the end that will give me 3 Plt's of 3 Sqds, along with the HQ platoon maxed out with support squads. All of this combined makes up "Dagger Company". The armor belongs to the WIP armored Rgt 3/73, which will never be finished because it costs to much, but I hope to add at least another Leman Russ, 2 Bassies, and 2 more Chimeria's (which I still need a name for...). Needless to say I'm sure it'll take me till next summer to get it finished.

Marshal w/Body Guard

As promised here the latest update. I haven't done to much to the Field Marshal (counts as Inquisitor) but I have started on his body guard. Both of them are from the original IG HQ troops. One is the original standard bearer and the other is the original LT. I've added shields from the Adeptus Arbites to help give them a little more of a body guard look. Imagine them jumping in from of incoming fire to defend their master and commander.

These two body guards are going to count as "warriors" so they will get 4+ saves and be armed with hell pistol and CC. Instead of modeling Carapace armor, the shield is what will give them the 4+.

I still need to add a weapon and hand to the one body guard. I had originally thought of giving him a Plasma Pistol, but after deciding to use them as warriors he'll get the standard hellpistol and CCW. In addition to these two, I plan on adding a couple of advisors (acolyte) to help suck up wounds, and either a Sage or Mystic. I haven't decided yet.

Marshal Argos Painting Update.

Well here's the latest painting update. Still have the base, and lower legs, and a little bit of detailing to work out yet. But for the most part I think he's done. Spent the day working on him while waiting for the camera batteries to charge, so unfortunately there were no P.I.P. pictures.
