Squaduary 2019 - Sicarian Infiltrators Part 2

Well, it's been a bit of an odd week this week. I have made some great progress with the Infiltrators but haven't taken too many photos, so this will probably be a short, and somewhat wordy post.

Nevertheless, this is how they were looking on Saturday.

The gangly gang.
Since this photo was taken I have managed to get a fourth member of the squad finished and made a start on the Princeps. But unfortunately I negelcted to take further progress shots so you will have to make do with the same photo from a different angle.

I'm starting to feel seasick.
It's an absolute blast painting these guys, I'm enjoying it so much that I can definitely see myself doing five more in the not too distant future. First though, I have to get the Manipulus painted up.

I did manage to get the Infiltrators on the field last night for a game against some Necrons. The squad performed fine, but didn't manage many kills themselves. I think in all, they accounted for half a squad of Necron warriors. Still, I like to think they are more of a strategic unit than one possessed of raw killing power. I might write it up as a short wordy battle report if anybody is interested (comment in the comments!)

All of this by the way is part of Squaduary, the annual painting event held by Stepping Between Games in an effort to bring more colour to the tabletop. I absolutely love these monthly painting challenges, so thanks again to Rory for running it.

Tune in next week to see the (hopefully) finished squad and find out if I've managed to overcome my fear of painting the Manipulus.

  1. Excellent progress, I'm really enjoying the Vanguard too, maybe AdMech is a refreshing change or something, I'm considering starting the next squad of ten Skitarii Rangers if I get the Vanguard finished this weekend! That Kill Team box is a must for me, I want Manipulus and I want a squad of Infiltrators, I already have Ruststalkers - so win win.

    1. Cheers Siph! Your Vanguard are looking great, I love the red helmets. I don't play kill team, but I'm loving the miniatures from the new box.

    2. Nor do I, I barely have time for one system... the box comes with 40K rules so happy I can add an HQ and a Squad to my AdMech force
