I am glad I don't have to paint 100 more of these guys, though I do have a squad of death corps that might need to be painted next. I can't wait to take a group shot of all of the different squads together.

The Squad is Done!
I've finished my one and only Valhallan squad.I learned a few things with these guys. First off, I think I like subdued tones of the valejo paints more than GW paints. There are so many good color combinations, that recipes become pretty easy. Secondly, the fact that I standardized on red guns turns out to have been a really good idea from a force cohesiveness point of view. These guys fit right in with the rest of my guard army, even though they are wearing different uniforms and are slightly different scale. They even fit in with my inquisitional force due to that same visual link.
