I had originally earmarked this model to be painted in Mentor Legion colours, but I did a test mini which turned out to be hard work, so instead he become a Crimson Fist. Despite the hours I have spent gazing at the cover of the Rogue Trader rulebook over the years, I had never painted a Crimson Fist until now.
This file is called "Fist Rear" [Beavis and Butthead laugh]. I opted for a green purity seal because there's already a lot of red on this model. It is GW Ogryn Camo washed down with brown if I remember correctly.
I am pretty sure that this model is well over twenty years old and he has had a few bashes here and there, like on the edge of the powerfist.
He's pretty flat, but that was what the technology of the time allowed and I think these models have a lot of character.
Here are the finished minis. A handsome bunch even if I do say so myself...
...and here they are in the formation that they appeared in the Citadel Catalogue. The final mini is the Space Wolf captain. Poot is going to give him a oil-washed basecoat like our other vintage Space Wolves.
As usual, 40k cat joined in the fun.
