Squaduary 2020 - Adeptus Custodes Vertus Praetors

Somehow it's that time of year once again. That's right, Squaduary is back and this time it's personal! For those that are unaware, Squaduary is an annual event hosted by Rory over at Stepping Between Games which encourages participants to paint up a squad of toy soldiers in February. 

As you may know, I've been doing this for a few years now and have made some good progress by doing so. Hopefully this year will be no exception.

The Vertus Praetors will use this colour scheme.
I painted this chap as a test model for the squadron of Vertus Praetors I intend to build and paint during squaduary. These will form the starting point of a new Adeptus Custodes force for Warhammer 40k.

Honestly, I am slightly daunted by the prospect of painting up three Praetors in a month. They are large and detailed models and I want to do them justice. I hope, that by using the scheme above, I will be able to complete them all to a good standard in time.

Slightly blurry detail of the cloak.
Come back next week when hopefully I will have made a good start by building the squad.


  1. Superb additions, I totally forgot about Squaduary... I’ll have to dig out a squad to do.

  2. Good stuff. You are the first one out of the blocks and all.

    1. Hopefully that is a sign of a successful Squaduary!

  3. Good luck! Will be following your progress with interest.
