Heresy Era Thosand Sons - Assault squad build begins

Was able to sneak in a bit of build time over the weekend, and cranked out the basic troopers for Assault Squad Mekata. It's been nice enough out that I engaged in a battery of primering over lunch today in hopes of getting some painting time in, but managed to snap a quick pic prior to that. Like the previous heavy weapons squad, this squad will be getting their left shoulder pads later on (once FW gets around to making them).

I'm holding off on building the sergeant for this squad and the upcoming tactical squad while I wait for various bits to arrive. The intention is to use some bits from the possessed sprues on each of the sergeants to give the army a little nod to the Flesh Change. Should be fun!


  1. Looking good!.. I really do love the look of the old school JPs 8)

  2. I like the Heresy era Assault Squads but I don't hear many people talking about them. Upto 20Jump Pack marines with 5 plasma pistols or power weapons and they are scoring?

    I think that should do some damage.

  3. Good dynamic poses sir.

    Glad you were able to find time to work a little on stuff.

  4. @Todd Sherman: Thanks very much, man!

    @Anurien: All tooled up a full 20-man squad ends up pushing 600 points, but they are nasty! As it stands, this unit will clock in at 365 points. Oof.

    @Dai: Thanks man! The build process is always my favorite part, and these guys were a blast to put together.

    Cheers, guys!

  5. Book three arrived earlier this week. I'm burning to start a heresy army.

    Gah !

  6. @Zzzzzz: Nice! Still awaiting my copy, actually starting to get concerned. Would love to see what you would do heresy-wise!
