Warhammer 40K - Misc FCs by renzoku Warhammer 40K - Misc FCs by renzoku
Three of the feature characters of my Warhammer 40K Imperial Guard army, the 512th Alvarian. From left to right, Colonel Reese Kessel [an independent character], Sergeant Karina Loucks, and First Sergeant Caden Frost [both Imperial Storm Trooper Veteran Sergeants].

They have backstories and details that I'm not going to bother you with. Blah blah blah.

Yes, I play Warhammer 40K now. God, I'm such a geek.

[EDIT:] Yes, Karina looks mannish. This is due in part to the model and in part to my inexperience with painting and lack of equipment [I painted all three of these with one brush]. The reason her leg armor looks so lumpy is because it was hand-modeled from Green Stuff putty, as the Imperial Guard is severely lacking in female miniatures.

Very nice models.
What improvments have you done to Reese Kesselīs Bolter?

I got around the lack of female modles by making customs with kit bashing. (odos are you already have come up with that one though.) Cool models anyway I like the power fist.

I'm not too worried about her looking mannish, but I am kind of worried about the fact that every part of her is armored except her torso. Trying to get a job with Heavy Metal magazine?

Still cool looking minis mate. And yes it's stupid they don't do more female IG models. I think maybe they should just so 1 sprue of each Catachan and Cadian to go with the others. Perhaps sell them as bitz. Would look cool. Otherwise the only real choice you have is Schaeffers Chancers which have 2 female models in.

Very nice job man. Is Colonel Reese Kessel's sword really as large as him, or is there just some odd bit of perspective going on?

It is. Or just about, anyways... It's the sword from the Space Marine Emperor's Champion pewter figurine. :P

Here's a link to a deviation featuring a newer, more distinctive version of Col. Kessel: [link]

May I suggest, though it might be a pain and require a bit of repainting, take a small fine file and pull her jaw line in under her cheek bones and sharpen her chin up a touch. Also maybe make her neck just a touch slimmer, this may make her appearance a bit more feminine. Maybe sharpen her glare a bit too just with paint though. I hope these suggestions are not too intrusive, and they do look really kick ass as is, lot's of character to each of them. Great work!!
