I got a lovely gift through my email today: a new banner from Suneokun over at Pathfinder! Suffice it to say that I think it's great, and I'll be putting it up directly - THANKS, MATEY!
What a nice chap he is, eh?
Now, a lot of folks seem to be working on hardened veterans at the moment, and it struck me that mine are in no way collated, so please find below a collection of all of my hardened vets, with a few notes and observations and some links to their main posts. This is in no particular order, and some of the best models are at the end of the list:
[NB: Not all pics are good quality and many don't do the models justice. Some models are frosted, too.]
1) G/Sgt Harker proxy and some cronies, incl. missile launcher, h/flamer, grenade launcher, demo charge (front-left) and melta gun:
2) G/Sgt Harker details:
3) Missile launcher details (I really love this model with his sawn-off launcher, but I need to update his 60mm base and give him a new loader):
4) Heavy flamer details (I enjoyed converting this, and it's a fun option to play!):
5) Demo charge details (note alt. camouflage on his rolled-up cloak):
6) Melta gun (from the FW Cadian command team):
7) My veteran sergeant. It's old now, but I really like this model - his cap was my first ever greenstuff sculpt!
10) Sniper and flamer (the pics aren't great, but I love this simple sniper conversion):
11) Another group shot - this time from part of my tournament entry last year:
12) This is my veterans' lascannon heavy weapons team:
13) This is a very clear study of the veterans' paint and camo scheme - in this case a grenade launcher with an 'uban' camo cloak. Note all my vets have their own simple heraldry on the right shoulder:
14) and one of my favourite models, the interchangeable autocannon/heavy bolter team:
15) Finally, the latest vets added to the pile (and more-or-less the last), some additional special weapons:
15a) Note that I here tried a different style of camouflage on the grenade launcher - a brief discussion of which may be found here [the normal camouflage is very simple too - there's a tutorial here]:
