The Command elements I finished up over the last few days... (all from Games Workshop!)
This finishes off:
Company Commander and Command Squad. I decided the officers needed a bit more "bling" that the standard troops, and that the Command Squad for the Company Commander could be similarly jazzed up. I'm not sure it works now... but I'm going to leave it as is (for now) too many other things needing paint on them to start repainting finished things now!
A second Platoon Commander and Command Squad. The Platoon Commander is a "Platoon Commander" in name only (for the fluff), they will likely always be fielded as Company Commanders in game terms not because they're a better deal - but because I have so few Headquarters options to fill up the necessary HQ slots for Brigade Detachments, and far more Elites units than I have slots for (Platoon Commanders in the game are Elite options - as are Command Squad - so a Platoon Commander and a Command Squad eats up TWO Elite slots of which there are only eight)
The entire force so far.
What we have here is:
3x Company Commanders
1x Lord Commissar
6x Infantry Squads
3x Command Squads
5x Special Weapon Squads (2x Sniper, 2x Melta, 1x Plasma)
1x Veteran Squad
1x Scout Sentinel
2x Heavy Weapon Squad (mortars)
2x Leman Russ Tanks (1x standard battle tank, 1x Punisher Variant)
Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Two Tallarn Roughriders - so I can split the group I have into two smaller squads of five and six, respectively (giving me three fast attack elements and enough to fill out a "Brigade Detachment").
At that point I'll probably take a picture of the 1000 point force I'm taking to the tournament on the weekend.
