Heresy Era Death Guard: Squad 1 Complete!

The first of my Legion squads is complete. I have dreamed for a long time about making a Legion army, and its great to finally see it take form! This is one of three squads, the other two to be built.
In the test model post I was worried that the shoulder pads didn't really 'pop' when painted. To try and rectify this I gave the pads a pass with the airbrush with a lighter shade of green. The one on the right is the only model with this shade, the one on the left was rolled out through the rest of the squad. I preferred the more subtle look.

It really helps make the iconography stand out a bit more.

Now that the squad is done, my attentions turn to this beauty!

  1. Nice! I'm really digging how those turned out - great work, mate!

  2. Nicely done, I really like the legion models. There is a wealth of detail that you really have manage to get out without overdoing the paint scheme. I think the lighter shaded shoulder pad looks better then the darker one. To bad you did not go with that one, but the models look great anyway so it is not a big deal.

  3. Thanks guys.

    Yeah now I've finished the squad I'm kinda wishing I'd gone with the lighter green!! I won't change this squad but will use the light shade on future squads
