When I first started out in 40K I bought the ”Battle of Macragge” starter set. Knowing nothing about the game, I pretty much assembled the models as portrayed on the box. And subsequently, all of my Sgt ended up with Chainswords, Bolt pistols, Banner and without a helmet. During my ”makeover” I did a job on these guys:
However, with the changes in 6th edition, I find my self seldom engaging in close combat. Adapting to this, I wanted Sgt. that pack Bolters ore Combi-weapons. And when the new Codex arrived, the option was there not to use Veteran Sgt, only Sgt. Hence, I decided to build and paint new Sgt. and to make them stand out from my old - now “Veteran Sgt.”.
I bought the new Tactical kit and used bits and left overs from earlier projects. The new set was awesome. Highly detailed and lots of variety (and almost no mould lines). This is how they turned out:
Next – Stern Guard Veterans!
