Imperial Army Trooper

I like the small variation in equipment - this model has a different helmet than most of the others.

I should mention the unit badge isn't finished. I like the blue and yellow division, I just haven't decided if I want to put a device or a number of some sort over it...

Imperial Army Trooper

Not a lot to say on many of these... they are just nice models.

I purposely kept the color palette very monotone to keep the models as generic as possible as I want to be able to use them for a variety of troops.

Imperial Army Trooper

I really love the old Rogue Trader Imperial Army models. The models work great for both regular Imperial forces and mercenaries (corporate security, planetary militia, etc).

This is the squad leader. The model would also make a great adventurer or body guard.

The next two weeks will feature the rest of the squad...

Eldar Lightning Squad

The finished squad...

I'm on a bit of a ramble. Rather than continuing on the Eldar I've been distracted by an Imperial Guard unit and they will be up over the next few weeks. I'll return the Eldar soon...

Eldar Lightning Squad

Eldar Pirate with Shuriken Catapult!

I decided to add a blue helmet because I really liked the look of that scheme from the Rogue Trader book as well. He doesn't stand out too badly when viewed beside the models with no helmet and I'll probably have at least one more like this when I get around to painting my third Eldar squad.

Finished squad up tomorrow...

Eldar Lightning Squad

Eldar Pirate conversion with Flamer!

Strangely in the old catalog this model is listed as having a flamer, but the model obviously had a Shuriken Catapult. I scavenged flamer bits from a modern plastic model to convert the weapon.

Eldar Thunder Squad

Done and Dusted!

Really pleased with the uniform look of the unit even with the multi-colored armour. A Lightning Squad is up next week...
