I’ve wanted to paint some of these guys for a while, mainly for the ‘cool factor.’ The Militarum Tempestus Scions Command Squad is a great kit with a lot of accessories and a multitude of options. I found that with a bit of smart eBaying, I could pick up the bits needed to make a second set of models for about half the price of a whole new box, so two kits for the price of 1.5! Not bad I’d say!
The second kit will be made into Militarum Tempestus Storm Troopers, and I hope to make a video tutorial on how I painted them when the time comes!
This kit is put together in a fairly default style as shown on the box art. It consists of a standard bearer (with shoulder slung hot shot lasgun), Tempestus Prime with bolt pistol, a medic, a Plasma gunner and a Vox operator.
In terms of colour, I went a bit lighter than the ‘official’ scheme, as I didn’t have any Thunderhawk Turquoise. Instead I used Russ Grey (GW) as the armour base, and then highlighted with wolf grey (Vallejo Game Colour). I used Wolf Grey and White for the armour stripes.
The gold was done with a base of Balthazar Gold (GW) and a layer of Greedy Gold (Army Painter), whilst the fatigues were done with Zandri Dust, Reikland Flesh shade and Ushabti Bone, all GW.
The NMM gold on the banner was really an experiment as I didn’t have my regular colour (the old GW Snakebite Leather), so used Scorched Brown (GW) and worked my way up to Filthy Brown (VGC) and Ushabti Bone (GW).
I hope you like this Militarum Tempestus Scions Command Squad, I certainly do and can’t wait to paint some more up! Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
I will be looking to sell these guys ASAP so if you would like them, please get in touch – otherwise look out for them on eBay!
