Thanks guys.

OSJ...... Your idea struck a nerve ;)

I went with some good old fashioned chain weapons. They're brutal, brutal looking and two of them together look awesome :D He's not finished yet, I need to add some more gubbinz, make a hilt for one of the chainswords, maybe add some knives and whatever you guys think of.. Anyway......... pics!!

Thanks! He's 54mm. There's a few 28mm scaled things on there, such as the skull. The Frag grenades are Space Marine Melta Bombs and the belt buckle skull is a 28mm skull. The vent on his chest is nicked from a Marine backpack as are the little vents on his chainswords.

Stormwind:
LOL, The model came from my Garage ;) Hacking up metal models at this scale is some serious work. Resin is just easier to work with. I have 6 metal versions (4 unbuilt) so it's not like I don't have them kicking around either :P But thank you anyway!!


OSJ:
Glad you like it mate. I'm probably going to leave the holstered Bolt pistol for now as I want him more of a combat specialist. He's just going to have a plethora of Knives and cutting/pokey/hurty implements on his belt ;)



In other news. The Grenades have gone in favour of more combat weapons. It just seemed odd to have a dual wielding close combat nutcase who has the brain power to stop and use grenades.

Well. He is Done. This is Arkus of the Black Legion. He is basically speed painted (for me anyway) as he was done in about 7 hours.






Here he is facing off against Banus (Poor Banus is seriously out classed). Banus has had his head repositioned and a Combat blade added.

Thanks chaps :D Unfortunately the dread Arkus managed to get himself eaten by a Genestealer in his first game.... which was a bit of a let down :S but, hey, it's a genestealer!!

New update. I managed to grab 5 guardsmen off ebay for (relatively) cheap! A few extras from my bitz box and they're almost ready to rock n' roll :D Not sure about a colour scheme though. Suggestions?

I ofr one can only suggest the colourscheme  of my 28mm classic cadians. as I love it!
 flectarn sleeves and tack vests, codex grey trou and dark angles green armour (for pads and helmet). for the flectarn I tend to base with catachan green. with splodges (well peadot effect) of bestial brown, camo green, karlock green and chaos black. with devlan mud over all this. it looks just like flectarn when these colours are used...

or the obvious choice for you would be an urban camo. I'd suggest the shadowgrey, skullwhite, chaos black tigerstripe scheme, with snakebite leather pouches as of the cover to codex cityfight...
