Finally, the Imperium invades this Blog to restore order and purge the Traitor, the Heretic and the Alien.
First in line is one of my favourite models – indeed maybe the reason why I started collecting an army of Imperial Guard in the first place. I just love the Cadian Stormtrooper Models.
Especially the Sergeant has a very dynamic pose, aiming down his hotshot laspistol.
As with all the models in my army, I tried to tie the overall impression together by using a distinctive colourscheme, basing and painting technique.
The main characteristic is obviously the splinter-camo. Besides from looking cool, it serves as a distractor from the more basic paintjob on the rest of the miniature. As I had to paint a whole army in one go, I had to do some planning in advance.
Every miniature, I started with a spraypainted basecoat of Armypainter´s Green, followed by a neat blockpainting. I finally added the splinters. White first, brown inner spaces second.
I washed (not dipped) the miniature with Army Painter Medium Tone, carefully avoiding excess medium pooling.
I finally added details, highlights and base detail.
This is the basic recipe for all of the army, excluding some special units like my scouts – more to follow soon!
