Vets WIP

Over the last couple months, I've kind of haphazardly been putting things together. One thing I did was to take the "roads" I showed in my Holiday Basing Ideas Post and use them with another vet squad I'm putting together. You can see the WIP here. One odd thing about using these Christmas Village roads is they are very pliable, not rigid like plasticard. While I could cut them with scissors, filing them smooth with the base edge wasn't as easy as I expected.

The squad was put together using SM scout legs, cadian torsos, and a mix of scout, cadian and catachan arms. The flamer is intended to be a heavy flamer version, and connected the new flamer with the back back using red wire from what's inside interior telephone wire. You may also notice there are 10 heads missing here. Once these are painted up, I'll be using the heads I showed in my review of the Games Workshop Head Sprue.


  1. Looking good. IG Vets are my favorite unit to build and paint. I look forward to seeing how those heads look.


  2. Looking good mate, there's a lot of firepower in that vet squad, just the way it should be.

  3. Scarey (but good) looking unit... Remind me to stay away from them if we ever play a game. :)

  4. That's a good-looking squad! I particularly like your basing method, it's very effective!
