My painting has been put on hold for a few days as I put together my latest Forgeworld acquisition. After chatting away about the new Forgeworld Zone Mortalis rules, I decided it was about time I jumped on this bandwagon and got some Boarding Teams of my own.
But what to pick? Now, they'd be based on the Cadian models, obviously, since my army is mostly clad in Cadian-pattern armour. A bit more thought led me to make them Fourth Battalion troops (2 Battalion being the full dress Mordians, and 9 Battalion being the 'Cadian' light infantry). 4 Battalion made its name rescuing an Imperial Saint from the hands of rouge spaceship crew, bursting onto their ship and storming through the passageways to rescue St. Elutor. Anyway, they've since evolved to become heavy combat types, specialising in close-in urban pacification (mainly sewer clearance etc in the Underhive) but also hulks - anything with tight corridors, basically.
