Tanith - Gol Kolea's Platoon, Part One


I'm meeting up with my client tomorrow to hand off the latest platoon for the Tanith commission. Above you can see the whole platoon, and there'll be more photos next week, but in the meantime, here are some shots of the Heavy Bolter squad, featuring "Try Again" Bragg and his heavily-laden loader.




Have a great weekend : )

Cheers
Dave

  1. Bravo, Dave. I love seeing anything Tanith related that you produce. I see Ana Curth there, and is that Ayatani Zweil?

  5. Fantastic set of characters here Dave, given me even more ideas for my growing set! Bragg and Nessa look good, any chance of a close up on them?

    Also, we never saw a good photo of your Mkvenner!! Can we see a pic of him from the last batch?

    1. Hi James, my client has Mkvenner at the moment. After the next platoon I hope to bring them all together and I'll be able to get some more pics of him then ; )

    2. Brilliant. What plans are there for the next platoon? Mostly Belladons I guess?

      SPOILERS for the latest book!!!!!



      I REALLY hope you are going to be making a version of their latest marching band group!

  8. They look absolutely wonderful Dave! Nice conversions and good to see that you haven't forget the Verghast females. Who are the squad leaders? And who is the guy with his gun in the air on the right side?

    1. Thanks Anon. The squad leader on the left is Criid, on the right (with lasgun raised) is Varl.

    2. The Escher model is indeed a good model to use for Criid. I Immediatly started looking for her on Ebay... Hard to find though.
      I hope your client needs another platoon soon! I would love to see this army expanding.

    3. We've been talking about the possibilities for the next platoon, and there are a few options. Hopefully we'll see another one on the table before the end of the year.

  10. I wish all the named character were tagged like on Facebook so I could hover my cursor over them and the name would pop up. Haha.

    Great work as always!
