Squad 217 complete

A while back I got all inspired by the Thorn Moons campaign on Iron Sleet, and came up with the concept of Squad 217.


The monochrome photos helped things, but I thought it might be better to paint the models and then think again how best to tell a story with them. Writing long paragraphs in blog articles is not my favourite way to tell a story, and not one I find effective.

Anyway, here are the four models with paint on them:


It’s a darker photo than usual. I’ve given them a fairly simple crimson and grey uniform, or at least the remains of one, since they have taken quite a battering. I still want to continue their story, but I’m looking at different ways of doing so.

    I hear you about long paragraphs. Whenever I find myself writing more than 4 or 5 sentences in one paragraph I have to step back and make sure I’m not over writing 🙂
