I'll post the fluff for the Cadian 24th soon - once the work pressures ease off a little, but in the meantime, here's the command squad for B Coy - one of the battalion's rifle coys. Please note the following:
1) The light blue belts denoting the 'elite' (if only!), veteran guardsmen allocated to the HQ squad - yes I know it's incongruous, but there's a fond reference in there somewhere;
2) The yellow field on the standard - no Brownie points if you're sad enough to get the reference. Note this also provides the colour of the flash on the bases (some of which are a bit untidy);
3) The plasma gunner may yet be moved elsewhere - there's just no need for his type of firepower in my Coy HQ squad, as their role is primarily to shout orders from the back, rather than to get stuck-in (old-school, baby!)
4) The crummy, early paint job on the models' faces. It doesn't help that - cretin as I am - I dislike painting metal miniatures. Hell, I dislike painting practically any miniature that doesn't come with tracks!
They have the bright yellow flash of their company standard - the 'B' designation is because they're the B Coy HQ unit. Unusually for me, I'm quite proud of the standard:
And here are their attached advisors - a commissar and a psyker. The commissar is essential - I'm less convinced about any necessity for the psyker. Cool model, though...
