Squaduary 2019 - Sicarian Infiltrators Part 1

Well, one week down and what a week it's been! I've been making some excellent progress with my Infiltrator squad and have already painted two of them.


Looks super stealthy.
Following the fun I had painting the power sword for my Skitarii Ranger Alpha, I couldn't help but go for a full squad of guys with power swords. I'm really enjoying knocking out a bit of quick and dirty blending on these blades and I think it will make the squad look really distinctive when they hit the tabletop.

All of this, by the way, is part of Squaduary. Run by Stepping Between Games, Squaduary is a community event to encourage all of us to delve into the grey pile of shame and get some more colour on our battlefields. This will be the third year I have participated and I expect to be just as pleased with 2019's squad as I was with the previous two. You can look back fondly at my previous efforts here.

Dodgy work in progress shot.
As mentioned in my initial pledge, these guys form part of the Theta-7 Acquisitus kill team box which also includes the brand new Tech-Priest Manipulus. I haven't yet made a start on painting the Manipulus yet but I did manage to get him built last weekend. I have to say that the amount of detail on the miniature is staggering and he will prove to be a challenging and exciting model to paint. I want to get his retainers out of the way first though.

More dodgy WIP.
That about sums up my first week of Squaduary 2019. Tune in next week for more pink power swords and hopefully a Sicarian Princeps to lead this pack.

  1. More pink creeping in I see :) These look great, superb choice of colours and shaping up to be a nice looking Force!

    1. Naturally! The final model in the army will probably be a bright pink Warlord Titan.

    3. If I had any intention of owning an Imperial Titan, I would definitely do this.

  2. Those Power Swords looks great!

    And just remember, you gotta be real quiet. Creep...creep.

    1. Thanks very much! I don't think being quiet is going to help when you have a giant pink sword and metal feet.

  4. Yeah...I think I'm just going to remove all power swords from my armies after seeing yours, I'll never be able to paint 'em that good!!

    2. You can do it man! It's just a matter of practice. Nice thin paints and build up the layers slowly.
