Mordian 7th Regiment - Company Command Squad Painted. Also, RT-era Space Ninjas!

After painting a couple dozen Praetorians for the Ad-Mech army, I needed a break from the unrelenting red-and-white. That being the case I pulled down the partially-painted command squad for the Mordian 7th reboot and polished them off.


Not a lot remained to be done on the unit - just the final detailing, unit markings and the banner bearer's banner. Unfortunately my fine-point sharpies all appear to be dried up so I haven't been able to fill in the scrollwork on the banner as yet, but for all intents and purposes the unit is table ready!


While I was rooting around in the Closet of Doom I came across a box of old, ooooold models - one of which was this RT-era assassin. I think he'll be an admirable counts-as Sly Marbo for the 7th, as he has a ripper-pistol-looking gun, a poisoned sword on his back, and a meltabomb to represent his demo charge. A similar paint scheme in dark grey, red and gold and he ties in well with the rest of the army!

These guys have a very old scholl look about them with all the colors.

It's a nice change of pace.

Thanks Ron! I've been suffering a bout of Army Fatigue after painting up the last guard army (over 5000 points), but I think it's out of my system now. I'm actually starting to look forward to the reboot of the glorious 7th! I think the trick is going to be 'build a unit, paint the unit, THEN build another unit'. Having a huge number of unpainted models built is daunting, and makes me dread trying to paint them en masse...
