Project UK: Grey Coat Imperial Guards

So I spent a while over the weekend working on this batch. Am glad to see them done up, and just have to touch up the goggles now with some last minute updates..

I really tried to make the scheme of grey still work out across the group. The blacks were there to help break things up a bit, while the blue hued helms were there to have some color in the models.

I painted them in batches of 12-16. Not for any reason other than that is how many empty paint pots I have kicking around to place models on while I paint them up. Helps with the airbrush priming process.

So on wards to the photos then.. :)

This is the combined force ( with the Van Saars in the background ).





Some close ups here..




So enjoy the weekend, and expect more updates forthcoming..

  4. I have updated them a bit, so expect some more photos soon. Not huge updates, but all the goggles got Orange lenses. Adds another color to them and breaks up the grey a bit more.
