in the next imperial guard army list i'm gonna deploy 2 veteran squads each with 3 melta gun so, as my veterans are quite heterogeneous (classic cadians & valhallans mix), i've planned this: both squads will have 1 cadian and 1 valhallan meltagunner, the remaining 2 will be a converted catachan and another model i have not yet chosen (is this sentence correct? sorry for my english). this time please check out my former catachan guy!
first thing i did was putting those shoulder pads (from plastic space marines scouts box) to make him look like a muscular cadian, then i've filled the gaps of the vest with the dear old milliput and lastly i added details: cadian backpack (from cadian weapons team) and the pistol holster on the backpack (tank crew kit) after having removed with a modelling blade the knife on the left side of backpack. last but not least: the eagle on the chest is from space marines captain sprues. so? waddayathink?
