Well this week was about finishing the 1st terminator squad.
I was keen to work on a banner for the squad as well as get them based up as well. Initially I had contacted Ron from From the Warp about the possibility of him being able to complete a commission for me on flags as his work is really great and maybe one day I will but unfortunately Ron's schedule will not fit in with mine.
Not a great loss but I don't have Ron's talent for free hand and as such I needed to find another approach to banners.
So google it was and after allot of image searches I found two that have me interested to look to try out.
This 1st is for the grand master and I have not yet begun work on this yet but will plan to start this this week.
I really like the idea of a Catholic Icon style back banner- Ill need to source an appropriate image and I do think I have one in mind.
This week was then working on the Justicar back banners. The gods of Google where kind and I came across this image:
Coolmini or not is a really great resource for inspiration!
So with this in mind I went ahead and put this guy together - I used Ron's Tutorial on Plasticard from card stock Cardstock tutorial for the side scrolls and a basic banner from a space marine Sergent add a Paladin Icon to the top- plus a etched brass symbol and some purity seals there you go! ( I really should photograph the steps in future). So while not as epic as Ron's work i happy with the outcome.
Anyway this is the squad in full:
Anyway till next time let me know what you think and if your playing grey knights what ways you have taken to distinguish paladins from the normal terminators.
