Axe to the face

"This is Sergeant Griffon. His axe was made to hack into traitor cranium. He and his squad of assault marines have been a regular fixture in Shrike's plans on Elkin Secondus for a long while now. The sergeant alone has notched up a tally of over 100 kills himself since the Raven Guard moved in to quell the rebellion there. Now that the Arch enemy has arrived, it's expected his experience and that of his squad mates will prove invaluable in the inevitable conflict ahead."

Base aside, this fig is done. Worried he looks a little like a Mime in power armour, but it's as done as I care to put effort into. No Sergeant's markings or insignia - Shrike's regulars are plain, until they earn their bling like the veterans. Griffon is not far off getting his first piece of flair I think. :) This fig is quite possibly my favourite Rogue Trader era Space Marine sculpt. Just screams to me, "Bring it on!!!". :)

This is Specialist Carver and Trooper Elliot. They're currently waiting for their green stuff mountings on their jump packs to cure before I attempt a paint job for them.

Below is Corporal Linstead who seems to have been out in the field for too long and has grown lax in his personal hygiene standards.

This blog has been everso quiet as I have been contemplating selling off my Raven Guard to help fund other projects, but it's so hard to let go miniatures that I've owned for over 25 years in some cases.....
Who knows, perhaps I'll update again before the new year?
