After quite a few months of chipping away, I've managed to finish the Renegade Imperial Guard platoon off! Huzzahs all round!
These chaps are all Forgeworld Renegade Militia conversion sets. Not cheep, but they look very nice. I'd saved up for a while to get these, and they make a nice change from painting ranks of neatly-ironed tunics. Apologies in advance for the quality of the photos but the camera's on the blink, so back to the phone for a few days.
The project began back in April, but these are so new to me that it took about five or six practice models before I could get a production line going. An interim update came in May featuring the Command Squad, but over the last week I've been hammering through them in batches of six and finished the first platoon (and a bit) of them.
Nothing too fancy; Command Squad, two infantry squads (and some leftovers at the back; mostly spare Enforcers and a few odd troopers). The models require some patience to put together, since none of them fit perfectly with the Cadian bodies and there's an awful lot of superficial flash on them. That said with the usual cleaning up done the quality is superb as it usually is from FW. I also needed blobs of Green Stuff a lot to help the arms stick properly. Liquid Green Stuff was very handy as there were cracks galore.
Anyway I'll let you see the results for yourselves ...

|The conversion sets come with a great selection of rarities |
like autoguns, and they're easily clipped from their Chaos-y arms
|The set of enforcers are lovely models. I gave them |
a lovely sickening purple skull
