|Raven Guard tactical squad for GW's 30k setting|
|From left - comms trooper, sergeant and vexillary|
|The detail on these models is really top shelf - I love painting them|
|It's an expensive taste, but I absolute love the embossed shoulder plates with the Legion logos..|
These multi-part plastic models from GW are top-shelf. GW itself may be run by a pack of incompetent asshats who are determined to obliterate their own hobby, but every so often they malfunction and accidentally release good stuff. These "Betrayal at Calth" boxes fall into that category, and I have quite a pile of them in various states of assembly.
|Some decals on the shoulders - those are from Forge World as well|
This gives me a grand total of 20 Raven Guard now. Not very many (well, they would do for a Rogue Trader game, but otherwise pretty limited) but I have more on the pending pile and I hope to add a few more to my total before the final horn sounds. I hope to be back again posting soon!
Brilliant work Greg.
Sarah I had the pleasure to spend a few days with Greg and his lovely wife Linda over this past weekend and during that time I got to see him at work on these very same figures. The photos above really don't do them justice. I marveled at the level of detail Greg puts into each of his 'rank and file' models. They all have lens flared optics, the power-armour is streaked, worn and chipped, the comms marine's backpack has a oscilloscope-like readout and the groundwork is well-thought out and beautifully executed. They really are a treat to see.
Well Greg, you have six days to pull out the stops. I really look forward to seeing what you can come up with by Sunday to close the gap with Jamie. :) Fire up the espresso machine!
