New Adeptus Mechanicus Platoon reporting

I finally finished up my third Platoon for my Adeptus Mechanicus Imperial Guard Army. Some of these have been in the painting Que since June 2009, when I was playing them in a league at the now defunct Castle.

 First are the three Command sections. The front one is the Company command and has a Regimental standard, medic, heavy flamer, flamer and officer with a power fist and plasma pistol, The second two are platoon command squads.They both have an officer with a power fist and a laspistol, standard, medic, flamer and heavy flamer. With 6th edition 40k here and the changes to the  feel no pain USR I am debating including the medics now. Since they are finally painted now I will probably field them till I get a better idea of how they will work. The first officer is a conversion using an old space marine power fist and the second two are catchan officers.

 The two Infantry squads have sergeants with power axes and bolt pistols and squad meltaguns. The two Sergeants are the newest editions to the army only being built a week ago. I wanted two sgts with power axes and boltpistols to field in my Adeptus Mechanicus Imperial Guard army for the opening day 500 point challenge at the Silas Creek Crossing Games Workshop store. I would have normally just used one of the models I have already and did a weapon swap but i decided just to make two more and that lead me to finishing the rest of these models.

You never have too many meltaguns or heavy flamers in my book, so a few extras to spread around the the rest of the army.

The major achievement is cleaning out a box of figures that have been works in progress for over four years. The funny part is that I would paint on them some and then get sidetracked. Then come back build a few more and get them painted to the same level as the ones already started and get sidetracked. Now They are finished and with a little rearranging I finally put them in the display cabinet with the rest of the army.

Congrats on getting them finished! They look great, look forward to seeing them in action someday.

Good luck on the 21st! I won't be able to make it, but hope you do well and have a great time!

Too bad we won't see you at the opening. The other problem is I set back down and started reworking the list I finished painting these to field. Now I need to either build and paint some missile launcher troopers or finish painting a couple of my catachan missile launcher teams.
