Valhallan Infantry: "C" Squad

My third infantry squad doesn't differ a lot from the first two.  There are a couple of conversions, one intentional, one incidental:

The sergeant has been converted so he is brandishing a power sword to go with his bolt pistol, and the fellow in the back who looks like Bazooka Joe's chum Mort was a miscast whose face came out of the mold somewhat misshapen.  'Waste not, want not' sez I, I filed his face flat, painted it red, and called it a scarf.

To dress up the autocannon team, I added a small wall of sandbags to their too-big base.  I hadn't reckoned on having to cut the sandbags in half in order to make them fit properly on the base (I'd only ever used them in scenery projects previously), and puttying up the ends was a bit of a nuisance, but I think the effect works well.  Let me state now that I have absolutely no intention of claiming a cover save for the models, but stranger things have happened in the heat of tabletop battles; I ask my enemies for forebearance in advance.

I'm also not sure what I need to do in order to have the snow flock look more fluffy and less crystalline, but with thirty-plus models to go, that feels like unnecessary nit-picking!

  1. Nice save with the "scarf". Mother, invention, et al.
