Chaos Guard - Techno-Barbarian platoon
Got some more gluing time and got the techno-barbarian platoon pretty much sorted. Used a variety of parts from the various Catachan sets (regular, heavy weapons, command boxes), fantasy Chaos Marauders, Marauder Cav, Warriors, Beastmen, some CSM heads and of course the metal Catachan and Necromunda figs. I've found that I really hate the regular Catachan arms that are meant to hold lasguns - they're a pain to get right and only really fit over some of the Catachan torsos. So for many figs I abandoned them and went with other options.
Platoon command - commander with PF, two flamers and two pistol/ccw. One flamer modified to have the chaos gargoyle head.
Couple of other views, helping to show the shields many carry along. I didn't want to cover up the Escher's hair, so she didn't get one.
First half of the first squad. Guy in the middle will be the squad leader, with power maul. The more recent Catachan bodies seem a bit smaller than the old ones, and the bigger head types didn't look right, so the kneeling guys all got either more recent Catachan heads or Chaos Maruauder Cav heads.
First half of second squad. Skullie in the middle will be the sgt. Used some Necromunda weapons on this squad.
For the guy second from the left, I cut off the handle of his sheathed blade on the backpack to give the impression that the machete in his hand is from the backpack. The lasgun on his base isn't glued on yet, will secure it after basing.
