The Road to the Standish Standoff: Plasma Vets almost ready for paint!

Hello all,

Over the last week I’ve managed to make some decent progress on the first Veteran Squad for my Rebel Grot (IG) army.  This is the only Vet squad I’m planning to take to the Standoff but I’m sure I’ll add one or two more at a later date.

First up is the Veteran Sergeant and the squad’s Vox Caster.  The sergeant is an Orlock ganger from the Necromunda box set.  I swapped his head and legs for Goblin parts and added shoulder pads.  The Vox Caster is a Goblin musician without any conversions except the boot soles.sarge and vox

 Here’s the major punch behind the squad, Plasma Guns!  These are my standard heightened Goblins.  These guys kill themselves almost as much as they kill anything else and as veterans, at least one of them has been around long enough that he’s learned to fear his own weapon!plasmavets

Next are the lasgunners who form the bulk of the squad.  Someone has to stand in front and soak up bullets so the plasmagunners can live long enough to toast themselves!

Thanks for looking!


  • Your sculpting is coming along great. I really like the one with the goggles.

    • Thanks! I like grots with goggles. I considered giving all three plasma gunners goggles but I really want to get going on the snipers. If those go quickly I might come back to these before I paint them.
