So why the Scorpions ? a couple of things really, I didn't want to do one of the normal choices but at the same time I didn't want to do my own chapter either as I've already done both of those things.
|If you look closely you notices their is only 9 of the squad as I forgot one.
|This model was lying around a long time so it nice to see some paint on him.
|On IC & squad lesders I'll be using FW pads like the one in this picture.
No records remain of the chapters founding or from which Primogenetor chapter their genseed was taken.
At the end of M.39 the Red Scorpions undertook the Orden crusade with the whole chapter going deep into the Orden Rift & out of contact for 300 years with what ever happened inside the rift unknown out side the chapter.
|Like his brother above this lad was a long time in the bits box.
I might even go for a built in warlord trait but more on that in another post as the army leader is at the mount been brought to life.
|I found this old style heavy bolter in the bits box & love it.
Which will mean drilling out the weapons a little bit of detail work on the likes of the eyes & squad markings, as this is a fluffy army the squads will always be used as they are so making them doesn't become a problem.
|The banner is just pined on so that I can remove it as seen in the picture below.
|I also have the flamer pinned on so that it can be changed
|I haven't got another weapon ready yet but you get the idea.
|I've still to do the gunner for the rhino.
So thanks for dropping in & if you enjoyed it (or not ) please call back again I leave you with some more pictures below.
