Skyrangers Pt.6: Sky-Commandos

Apologies for the shocking lack of updates. End of term meant blogging had to take a back seat for a while but normal service is now resumed!

So first up we have the elite Brundark Sky Commados! Death from above!

Naturally they are used as Stormtroopers. I am very much looking forward to the new hotshot hellguns. And the Kasrkin models are very cool.

Fatigues painted in same colour scheme as the regular infantry. The carapace is Necron Abyss foundation paint which I was very pleased with, it gives a nice shiny yet hard look about it which is hard to see from the photos.

I was afraid the model looked too dark so I painted the visor and scope Goblin Green with a green ink wash, providing enough of a contrast colour to offset the darker areas. It may still look dark but I wanted the model to look like a contemporary special-forces trooper.

Here's the Sergeant.

Note his curved cavalry sabre which he 'discovered' on the battlefield (high-tech conversion I know!).

And the squad in full.

I am looking forward to these guys arriving in style in a Valkyrie soon.

I love the smell of promethium in the morning....

C&C welcome, as always!


  1. Love the color scheme you got going here, it looks great. ...and I don't think the models look too dark at all.

  2. Thanks Master Darksol, I like the scheme too. I am tempted to get another squad to paint but I've just added up my list with the new Codex and I don't really have the points to spare!

  3. I love these models and these guys look great.
