THAT wasn't in the recruiting brochure!

There are many horrible things about Catachan. It's a Deathworld for starters. There's the jungle, there's the myriad things that want to eat you (often whole) and then there's the weather. Let's just say it's not a pleasant place.

Considering all that the Catachan military must be, of necessity, a fairly unpleasant experience as military organisations go. A hard life begets hard men and etc., etc., etc... But for all of that, they never, ever, ever mention this in the recruiting brochure...


Let's face it, it's not nice and probably not something to be discussed when you're trying to sign people up for (an invariably short) life as a grunt.

Bad jokes aside the above image is lots of drilling and pinning so I can permanently attach the gunners for my Catachan heavy weapon teams to their apparatus which appear below.


And when that's all done they can be painted up to look like the chaps below, now complete and awaiting basing once the heavy weapon teams are also painted.


And then? Well, the infantry of a 90% infantry based army are 100% done and dusted. Three Sentinels and Bob's your Auntie's live in lover. Phew!

Cheers,
Millsy

  2. At least you shouldn't have to worry about them running away from the battle!

  3. Looks like the Inquisition had a few of the lads in for questioning. Either that, or the Medicae Imperialis have decided to run some serious prostate checks on Guard forces.

    2. Indeed. Just when you think it can't get any worse you get shafted...
