The Helghast are here... at least, some of them.

Ok, a bit later than I intended, but finally, we have some actual models!:



















Sergeant. Added a single pro-create shoulderpad.

Vox-boy. Had to cut the vox unit in half to get it on him.

Flamer guy with added green-stuff shawl - my first try at sculpting cloth.

And the rest of the squad.

The squad's transport. I still have a few winged skulls to remove, as this is a pre-heresy force, but I got a bit impatient...

After a few unsuccessful attempts to take an unblurry picture of the turret, I had to lay it next to the chassis. I'll probably leave it unattached so I can get hold of some extra weapon options for it (if I remember correctly, the scatter laser is a bit meh, weapon-wise...).

Concerning colour scheme, the trenchcoats will be black with very muted highlights (black with a drop of codex grey), the weapons will remain black but with a sharper highlight, as will the body armour. The fatigues pose a problem though. I've been looking at camouflage schemes online and really like the MARPAT urban digital camo:

But I have no idea as to how to go about painting it... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I want to do the same scheme for the tank as well, but that should be easier as it is larger...
