Troop Squads Complete - Meet NOBLE Platoon!

Well, its been a bit of a slog, but all the troops are now complete! In honour of the Xbox game that Ive recently devoted so much time to, i have dubbed these men the Veterans of NOBLE Platoon!

You may remember in an earlier post that i intended to add squad markings at a later date and then tie them to a particular Valkerie/Vendetta transport. Well, now that Forgeworld are releasing an Elysian transfer sheet, that idea is on hold until i get my hands on some! For the time being, here are the Veterans of NOBLE platoon. (NOBLE 2 is actually missing because the photo uploader is on the frizz, buit its another 2 Plasma Guns and a Heavy Flamer)

NOBLE 1 - 2 Plasma Guns and Heavy Flamer
NOBLE 3 - 2 Plasma Guns and a Melta
NOBLE 4 - 3 Melta Guns

Upon completion of these squads, i immediately started work on the Long Range Scanner, my other HQ choice. This little unit allows one squad per turn to re-roll to hit rolls, as long as that squad has a Vox (which all of mine have!)

Forgeworld do produce a scanner which is included in their Las Cutter set, but I'm not about to pay £20 for a scanner and a load of models i don't need! Making my own was very easy, and her it is!

The operator was a guy from a platoon command squad i bought by accident, when in fact i didn't need it (whoops), but the squad has provided me with invaluable spares. The scanner itself was made from parts from the bits box. I'll start painting this guy later, and once i get some more funds, the purchase of vehicles and gunships can begin!!


  1. Great looking platoon.
    The scanner is a great conversion. I know it will look different when it's painted, but for now, with the backlight hitting it just right, it looks like a lamp.

  2. He he your right it does! But a very clever lamp, that has a scan function!!
