Well, we're just of five weeks into the Heroes of Armageddon project and conversions and test models are just starting to appear on the blogs of those hard working folks across the US and Canada. Not to be left behind, I figured I'd show you all the first figures completed for the Steel Legion army - the first squad of Savlar Chem Dogs.
Why the Chem Dogs first? Well, to be honest, they were already done. I converted and painted this squad 11 years ago when I was inspired by the John Wigley artwork that appeared in White Dwarf. This squad went on to appear on the Third War for Armageddon website and then in the Chapter Approved - Savlar Chem Dogs article. All it took to bring these models up to snuff was a quick dusting, a switch of their ochre fabric from Bubonic Brown to Tau Sept Ochre, and a repaint of their bases to the new scheme.
It was a lot of fun checking out the old models again, particularly trying to remember the origins of the backpacks these scroungers are all laden with.
Well, more Heroes of Armageddon stuff to come, some of it quite soon I hope.
In the meantime, if you're in the Richmond, VA, area this Sunday, make sure you get along to FTW Games for their Charity Tournament that'll be raising money for disaster relief in Japan. Check out the details on Rob's site here.
