Love the Field Police! I always thought they were an interesting idea from back then, but GW never ran with it. Kind of like Commisar training squads, human bombs, and whiteshields.

Nice painting! I'm not a big fan of the old models (even though I was), but I always enjoy well painted RT stuff. The Slaaneshi warband makes me want to redo my old Death Guard (or Dusk Raiders). Chaos warbands were always a lot of fun.

Nice stuff!

Thank you all! :) The idea of the Field Police had been wandering around my mind for some time, it just was the right moment to execute it, I guess.
I had a game using these (2nd Ed. with house rules); I'm currently writing the AAR for the blog, I hope I'll be posting it over the forum in a few days :).

I had these guys pending, a couple of Apothecaries and Techmarines ;). I could have painted them blue with touches in white or red, but I really prefer the whole armour colour scheme:



As I enjoyed doing the Chaplain banner, I did another one for the Apothecary. A robed skeleton walking on ashes holding the Helix while he opens his robe with the other hand and shows a beating heart (I'm explaining so you understand what you are seeing :D )



For the Techmarines I thought of making some backpacks with tentacles, servoarms and stuff, but I'm too lazy and they are a mess for storage. So nope.



The shoulderpad is the white hand, the emblem of both the Techmarines and the Uruk-Hai :lol:



I dared to do another banner. But these guys wouldn't like a robed skeleton, I needed another approach, some tech geek looking stuff...



Though I ike the concept, I'm not satisfied with the result. Being the first one I do, it's enough, but I may redo it...

Here are they all:



And here you have them on the blog:

Hmmm... Now I need a field hospital and a vehicle repairing bay... :D

I finally finished my Terminator Squad, thanks to this eBay elusive turtleback marine:



With him, the Vintage Squad looks like this:



I tried to add a banner pole to the Sergeant mini, but I didn't find a way of sticking it. I begun this banner, which maybe would need to be redone...



Anyway, as I have plans of adding another more orthodox Terminator Squad, I still may use the design...

For the moment, this is it!
