Penal Legion


For winds of war, my completed penal legion squads and priest.

Bit of a gamble painting orange but i tried to make it look grubby to tone it down a bit... I'm more than happy with the final look of them.

  1. They're actually amazing!

    I want some Penal Legion eventually, but I can't come up with something original enough.

  2. Well I did consider white with little black arrows on, so that is still available :oP

  3. I have considered that but it's more comedy than grim dark. I want them to look like the kind of prisoners you'd expect in the 40th millenium. Considering that Guardsmen are the hardest humans around, the criminals must be pretty tough and insane. I'm thinking along the lines of the Inquisitiors' Acolyte in one of the Cain novels.

  4. Not necessarily... you read the schaeffer models it reveals you can get all sorts in penal legions. Sure, the ones that survive lots of battles are tough... but who says your penal legion squad is a veteran penal legion squad? :oP

  5. Yeah could be the fat artillery officer trying to make a bit of cash on the side by buying cheap equipment.

    Squad looks fantastic though ginge
