I have spent the last two evenings speed painting a 5 man squad of Crimson Fist sniper scouts for a local tournament that I am attending next month, they are a bit rough and you can see I rushed them but on the tabletop they will look cool enough. I really don't like scouts as a general rule but this is a tournament and that means what I usually like is not really my 1st concern. I need a cheap "deckchair unit" to hang out in my Aegis line and man the the Quad-Gun and score a home objective where possible, I have given them a missile launcher for some punch and camo cloaks for the +1 cover save.
Not to bad for a few evenings work.
They should look respectable on the table.
I tried to use mainly base colours and shades to speed things up.
Like my Crimson Fist Marines I went for armour damage rather than edge highlighting which also saves a ton of time while still looking cool.
Next I have to finish the Dwarf ship from Dreadfleet and the last details on my Space Wolves Lucius Pattern Drop Pod so I will post them once they roll off the production line.
