Figured I’d post a quick update on this most dreary and wet of English mornings – can’t get outside to prime miniatures!

As you can see I’ve built the six members of the second squad. I was very excited when my (10-man) MKIII Burning of Prospero plastics arrived!

Since these are supposed to be former Iron Warriors, MKIII armour was clearly a must but due to their outcast status, each one also has incorporated more recent replacement components from MkIV and even the odd loyalist MK VI part.

The middle one in the first picture is the Aspiring Champion (as shown last post) whereas the middle one in the second picture will be the squad’s Meltagun specialist.

Speaking of the Aspiring Champion, aside from his Combi-Melta and (somewhat hidden) chainmail tabard, he is quite to identify him differently from the rest of the squad – hence I made his backpack a bit more ornate;

Hopefully you’ll agree it’s a bit more subtle than the usual unwieldy spiky poles that Chaos Space Marines are quite fond of!

As I said, once the weather clears up I can prime these newly built additions and begin their own colour scheme – something a bit like this;


That subtle blue sheen for the upper parts is something I’d like to emulate (over a more traditionally gritty Iron Warriors dark gunmetal).

Best thing is, this squad of six combined with the five existing Red Corsairs on my desk combine to make a legal 200pt Kill Team! 👌🏻
