Genesis Chapter Tactical Squad #2


So I’m starting off May with a bang by completing Tactical Squad #2 of my Genesis Chapter. Just in time for Games Day. I feel like I rushed these guys, but no matter, I’m only aiming for a good table top quality. This squad much like squad #1 (here & here) are snap fit, but are from the Battle for Macragge box set. I found these guys on eBay for $20.00 so I couldn’t pass them up.

I tried a new flesh tone on the sergeant and used a different technique on the bases. For the skin tone I started with Dwarf Flesh like I normally do then did a wash of Ogryn Flesh, but then highlighted using Elf Flesh. I’m pretty happy with the results. As for what I changed about the bases… nothing more than using a heavy over-brush technique rather than dry-brushing. I also tried painting my Purity Seals Bronzed Flesh followed by Gryphonne Sepia wash and highlighted with bleached bone. I’m not as happy with the results so I’m going to stick to my old way... Starting with a Bleached Bone base.

You can find out my colour scheme(s) by looking at some of my other Genesis Chapter posts. (here)

I suppose after this I’ll move on to the half painted Landspeeder that’s been sitting around for a month. Comments and criticism welcome and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Lookin' nice and crisp. Only thing that sticks out as being off is that the Serge's Bolt Pistol could do with having the barrel drilled out. But besides that, great work!

  2. Very nice, with a good diversity of poses as well!

  3. Nicely done - That's a great shade of red, and the green highlights really contrast nicely. Keep up the great work!

  4. I just discovered your blog and have to say
    that you really do a lot of cool stuff.
    Genesis Chapter rules! ;)
    I especially like the captain you showed in
    an earlier blogentry!

    Keep it up!

  5. Thank you everyone.

    @noobyfied - I'm happy that you enjoy the blog and appreciate the feedback. :)
