Ho-ho-holy Emperor, it’s the festive season and what would be more suitable than a squad of Santa Guard from an arctic death world? I painted these fur-covered guardsmen back in 2010, but back in the day I didn’t have a DSLR camera so I thought why not take a better picture of them. Find out more after the jump.
I painted these squads to experiment with Formula P3 paints and more muted paint schemes. I compiled the paint recipes in a separate post, check it out here.
Not much else to say. I bought these models soon after they were released, I remember it was pretty awesome to see GW fully realize a completely new Astra Militarum regiment. I like some of the gothic touches like the rebreathers and bionic eyes, I’m all for more gothic John Blanche style guardsmen, even though I’m not so much intro baltic culture, so they never became a larger collection.
How do you like my Vostroyans? Do you have some Vostroyans in your collection, too, or even painted a full army? Drop me a comment (or link) in the comments section below.
