On the Bench: Imperial Guardsman

I have decided that the first group of Imperial Guard that I will paint is a very boring squad of them all in the same position. Sounds boring, but I am running with the theory that the repetition in painting will allow me to become comfortable with painting them and allow me to complete a unit of them more quickly. My choice of models for this project is the limited edition Cadian models that were released a few years ago. I was trading for them back when they were released and now seems like a good time to clean and paint them.

Once the dark blue has been applied and washed, I apply a coat of black grey (4:1, paint:thinner) and give it a wash of GW black.
Next Time: Something other than blue.

  1. Nice start, if you go that way you could do up a fairly nifty Necromunda Arabites unit.
