Skitarii & another found wandering the Martian Ironearth

So, that's a second vehicle and two assault units done for my Skitarii - an Onager Dunecrawler, a unit of Sicarian Ruststalkers and a unit of Sicarian Infiltrators. As usual, they are done up with all purple for the vehicle and purple & green for the infantry.



The Dunecrawler will need the base finished off and with the two Sicarian units, I did the bases differently - one unit had the textured paint and the other the crackle paint.

Finally, I had a little try of a rust-coloured weathering powder on a Dark Angels Land Raider, which is part of my Hammer of Caliban formation (Techmarine, Land Raider & 3 Predators).

I didn't go for the normal blue/ yellow colours, as I wanted something different. (Perhaps a final wash of Nuln Oil may make the model look a bit better).


Next, the second purple miniature is a Skitarii Ironstrider Ballistarius armed with a twin-linked lascannon, At times, the model was a pain in the ass to build but I think that may have been down to the glue I was using taking time to set properly before I could glue the next parts on. I will plan to have another one or two of these models alongside it, to provide some long-range fire for this faction.


Finally, I have now built the first Chaos Space Marine unit that will serve my Khorne Daemonkin army. It is a ten man squad, all on 32mm ba…
