SCWH Traitor Guard: Penal Squad Test Model



A while back John and I were talking about options for a Penal Squad for my budding Traitor Guard and he came up with the idea of having 'good guys' be the penal squad for my traitors. I thought it was a great idea and decided to hunt for models that look completely different from the bad guys.
I always loved Victoria Miniatures and since she had a free shipping deal a few weeks back, I jumped on it.
Here's the first of nine models.

I sculpted a psyk collar around his neck that not only has an explosive built into it, but also harnesses the mind of the poor guy, hence the white eye...
The head is from the Westwind range, German heads. i like this one with his patch.

The Vic model is just of the highest quality, with great detail and wonderful prportions. Anyone should find an excuse to pick up a few and get painting!

More coming!

  1. Good guys...thats a brilliant idea! And it gives you a nice chance to use all sorts of Guardsmen Army models as well! Vostroyen, Cadian, Catachen, Tallarn and so on ^_^

  2. Love the collar, love the look. I'd say the test was a success.

  3. Love the idea of the collar, the use of the head and Victoria parts, but those cadian legs just look off. Too big and bulky I think.

  4. thanks everyone!
    Dai: the legs are also from vic. They do look a bit wider, but I like that bulky look follow through with the bigger boots. better then the catachan ones anyway
