Default Your Guard Schemes!

I just bought a box of Cadians (I wanted Steel Legions, but I hate metal models) and I have painted them
Snakebite Leather cloth, Camo Green Flak armour, and main part of the gun. boltgun metal for the stock, bayonett, end of the barrel, and the las clip. Flesh is Bronzed flesh. The entire model was inked with chestnut ink, watered down on the metal parts. The cloth was highlighted with Graveyard Earth, the armour highlighted with camo green/bubonic brown mix, and the flesh with Elf flesh and bronzed flesh.

What are yours?

Best pics I could find... you can see the Chimera (Goblin Green with Dark Angel's Green) and the Leman Russ (Space Wolves Grey and Chaos Black), which sports my standard Infantry colour scheme.

I'll get better pics up tonight.

Heck here is my colour scheme.
Recently finished my new Lt. , although I'm thinking of changing the graveyard earth to scorched brown.



Greetz,

Damn picture resizing! Work dammit! Work! - Hah! Success!

Are you only interested in Cadian model colour schemes or can we post pics of other models too?

I for one would welcome anything non-Cadian.

Hmm, haven't seen that particular type of Guard uniform before. Kind of Napolionic. Jager....have we another Girl genius fan or just fate on the name?

Right, let's bring on the Emperor's Finest!


Mechanicus Rex, Leman Russ (Galaxia Pattern) of the 175th Galetonian. As with all vehicles assigned to Galetonian regiments, the tank has its name proudly painted onto the front armour. The blessing "Emperor Guide My Fire", was added later by the crew.


Unit pictured is the command squad of Lieutentant Haines. Note the Mars-Pattern Autocannon.

Accompanying this unit is Brother Nelson of the Imperial Mission, bearing a Relique Imperator, and his plasma gun "Wrath of Heaven".


Pictured here is the First Squad of First Platoon. The 175th, like many Galetonian Regiments, favours their dress-uniform in battle. The unit is still equipped with standard heavy flak-fibre mesh weaved armour, which was replaced with cara-flak composite armour as of 987M41.

Behind the squad is Strife, the Leman Russ Executioner (Ryza Pattern). The fifteen kill-marks on the turret show those earned during the last campaign.


left to right: Corporal Palpatine, Corporal Reckeridge, Sergeant Hunt and Corporal Hicks of Armoured Fist 001.

Though part of the 175th Galetonian, the Armoured Fist units train in a variety of hostile conditions, and due to their vanguard role, they favour Camouflage.

Pictured is the standard Heavy Woodland fatigues.


Unidentified sergeant of the Terasen Stormtrooper Corps, standard operating uniform. Note that whilst standard Terasen wear Bronze armour, it is common for them to adopt standard Naval fatigues when assigned away from their homeworld for extended periods.

The other three soldiers pictured are members of the 199th Galetonian, wearing the Winter Fatigues issued for the Maxan War.


Unidentified Leman Russ Exterminator (Mars Pattern).

Camo-pattern indicated participation in the Cypros Agri-world Offensive. Armour unit is probably Galetonian, as colours match standard Wheatland Camo.
