A quick update to the Imperial Guard army today, as well as a general status report. Me and Headologist are working hard to put the final touches to the forthcoming Necromunda Campaign Weekend. We've got four (possibly five) fully painted gangs and scenarios all written out ready. H is back in town later this week and we've got a terrain-making day planned, so I'll try to get some photos for that as well. Looking further ahead, I've ordered my first ever WW1 miniatures from Musketeer, so there'll hopefully be something on that in the coming months.
Back to the present though - and I've been finishing off my last few Palladian Guardsmen. With the news that GW have officially pulled the plug on the Collectors range, that has solidified my aspirations on the Guard army; I know I can only ever do a company-sized force. A little sad, but a full six-company battalion would have been very costly and probably taken the best part of a decade to collect. So I sadly took out my last batch of unpainted Mordians, resisted the temptation to put them on Ebay at £10 per figure, and painted them up. There they are - probably the last squad to reenforce Second Battalion.
Having said all that, I still have roughly six squads of Palladians, enough to model two companies, and I'll probably top up the army every now and again with a few Ebay purchases.
And that's all for now! Stay tuned, the campaign weekend will hopefully be written up for Monday or Tuesday next week.
Thanks for reading.
