Serpents of Hellfire: Veteran with Chainsword and Storm Shield

Hello! Here's one additional marine for my Veteran Squad. This is the second one in the unit, that is equipped with Storm Shield. I think it's good to have two marines blocking the incoming fire with 3+ invulnerable save...

I'm still working with my chapter colors... plans seem to change as I go. This time I changed the color of the cape to black. And I think it really works better than the red cape with the older models. The broblem is, that now I have to repaint rest of the veterans, and probably do the same with my bikers. Good thing is that black covers with one layer, and high lighting is quickly done with little bit of grey.

Damn..! I forgot to write something smart on the shoulder banner. The shield, bolted on bolt pistol, is taken from old "Field of Glory" Celt Warband box. I think it looks coolish... And I like the idea it's wooden, that gives the shield some "old Chapter-artefact" feeling :) Bye now!


  1. I like the pose you did with the shield. It looks as if he is just haphazardly tossing the incoming fire to the side, as if it's annoying :).

  2. Thanks Greg! That's what I was aiming for... Veterans have to be cooler under fire, than the regular marines :)
