Default First Imperial Guard squad

Yep here it is, my first squad of Imperial Guardsmen for my new army.

They're from a lava planet...what do you all think?

Please remember, i'm only 13 years old!

not a bad colour scheme. it definitely works well...simplicity is good

as for the painting. loks like you could learn the love of multiple coats . 3 or 4 nicely thin coats will cover much better than just 1, and should remain smooth...the areas i notice you could do with this is n the red and flesh

as for neatness, you're doing pretty well. all round, a pretty solid job. just keep practicing, playing around with paint and brushes, and you'll quickly learn to be a great painter

there are several lava and volcanic planets,ie: Kanak being a well know one. You could make em like trained and worked up kanak warriors or somthing (that would be great for a bit of fluff).

The painting is good for a first go at IG models (esp cadian). Some highlighting and more detail on the armour and skin wouldnt go astray either.

all round they look pretty cool, good job

and its not your age that represents your painting skill, its how long youve been painting and talented you actually
but your well on the way too be a rather good tabletop painter. great work

(now if only i had a digi camera?? :'()

No it wouldn't. Kanak are a barbaric, pre-blackpowder people. They are only issued Laspistols on the basis that they wouldn't be able to use anything more complex. In essence, they're mini-Ogryns.

I take it you used Scab red and chaos black, their a little dark for me, but the painting seems nice. My Guardsmen are scab red and bleached bone which seems to work well, but at the end of the day, their your Guardsmen and I've already said this, but the painting looks fine

Well, mine are called "Halgar's Hunters", if it helps but "27th Cassius" seems fine with "Cassius Rifles" or "Cassius Crusaders" etc
