After a long long long long period of study I decided the colour scheme for my RG. It wasn't easy but at the end I decided to try using airbrush for first time in order to change towards to my 40K GK.

So I started with my relic contemptor used for my old 40k SM army, the red Hunter. After some changing (i removed all the purity seals) this is how it looks like now.

It is WIP because I have to do some chipping and weathering and the base is the old one.

For the base I'm trying to use agrellian earth and some ruins like Corax base. This is one of my try, but I have to use pigments (probably some like red sand) and add some sand around the ruins.

I need some tips about the Legion organisation. Before Isstvaan V (but after the arrive of Corax), the legion had the standard organisation showed in Betrayals? Because I need to choose the number for the squad and I like to use something useful also after the dropside massacre. Do you have any suggestion?

Based on the RoW, it seems like Drop Pods are a big deal, as are the Storm Eagle variant - neither of those can take 20 troops so that would indicate (to me at least) that the squad numbers are generally 10, not a full 20. That's how I've decided to run mine at least. 


Cheers! Joel

Since I am never satisfied, I changed the colour scheme of my RG.

I choose less cold colours and red pigments for weathering, because I want to set my army on a kind of desert world destroyed by wars (something similar to Ken's Terra), according with the Corax base.

This time I started with my legion outrider squad and I am quite satisfied. This should be the final scheme:

And this is the bikes with the biker

To this bike I added the weathering (the picture was taken before I painted the biker's light)

Now I only have to finish the other bikers and weathering. Bikes don't have the bases because I'm waiting for new oval bases. In the meanwhile I started to modify some models, as the Chaplain, but the picture is not very good.

Nice! That color scheme looks ace!

Remember that all infantry gets "Infiltrate" so if you want big squads, go for it!

Thanks to all!

I have to paint 30 tactics (mk IV), 10 veterans, 10 furies and 10 mor deythan. And I'm planning to buy 10 recon and 15 more tactics (5 mk II, 5 mk V and 5 mk VI).
My idea is a recon RoW. But after meltabomb faq my veterans are less useful.
Now I don't know what to do, but veterans colour scheme is too great and I want to paint it.

The sergeant is Virtus Kaydaas, veteran of Isstvan V and one of the prisoners of deliverance. His outrider is one of the few retrieved from Isstvaan V.
The red strip on the helmet represent his specialist status, but he never be promoted because of his bad behaviour with some terraborn.

Thanks to all! Now I'll focus on the first tactical team, "Deliverance" that is composed by 20 tactics only in mk IV, but as soon as possible I'll order some mk II, V and VI in order to create the second tactical squad and merge the different marks.
Moreover I just gave the primer to my two contemptors "Umbra Avium" a former member of the heavy support squad that use two kheres cannon and "Alis Irae" A CC Contemptor with fist and chain fist. this last model is the BaC contemptor, but I didn't like the pose and I deeply modified it. In any case the weapons and arms are magnetised, so if I want I can change its.
Soon the pictures.

Question- What red-brown are you using on the bases? I'm strongly leaning towards doing an Iron Hands army and had that color in mind for the bases.

I didn't use red-brown. :D

I'm waiting for new oval-bike base, in the meanwhile i used the previous base with previous configuration. It's a simply mixture of sand and little rocks painted in black. Then I used pigments, in particular red rust pigments by kromlech. It's an amazing effect! I bought also the orange rust and dark earth to use it for enlighten/darken some points, but to use it I'm waiting for new bases, as I said :D

 

This is because all my RG is black/grey even weapons and cloaks, and I need a base that is strongly different, so I thought about a world destroyed by war (like in ken shiro) in which the sand rules. My only problem now is that Corax has in his base some ruins, so now I have to insert some of its in every base. It's ok, but I'd like to use Agrellian earth and now I'm not sure that it could work with sand and ruins. But, I'll do some tries and then... I don't know. :)

 

Moreover I've just finished my 20 tactical base with primer, black for shadow and grey for light and I'm quite satisfied of my work. As soon as I'll highlighted it and finish some details I'll post here.
