The Thick Grey Line

I’ve finished theming the Aegis Defence Lines for my Mordian Iron Guard (part 1 here if you’ve missed it).

Below, a set of binoculars to scan the horizon for hostile activity. It’s taken from the Rogue Trader era plastic Space Orks who were clearly more sophisticated in those days.

The stacked ammo pouches suggest a sniper position. Are those kill markings or is someone just counting off the days?

A game of noughts & crosses to pass the time between attack waves.

The centrefold of last month’s Heroines of the Imperium, sure to make any Guardsman rise to the occasion in battle.

A standard issue field blanket. According to the soldiers, it is so coarse that you “wouldn’t wrap a corpse in it”.

Looks like even the stalwart Aegis Defence Line couldn’t provide protection for an unfortunate Guardsmen here. Only his bloody handprint remains.

    • Since I have no hope of painting something like this, I simply printed it out in 1×1.5cm, folded it and curved the edges to make it look like a locker room poster.
      There are plenty of Sisters of Battle pin-ups on deviantART as well, but I decided to go with the original, most iconic image of them all.

    • Thanks! It felt a bit sterile after I finished painting it. Adding skulls isn’t always the answer so I thought I’d have some fun with it.
