Today I saw a 16yo girl who slashed her wrists, another 16yo with cardiac problems, a man with a messed up back from an industrial elevator compressing his spine, and other sick and dying people.
Back to blog, I am just examining what products are available to help me shake off the Cadian look a bit. I'll include a mix of Cadian and Russian gear, to highlight the ragtag equipment veterans have (and Russian ones especially)
|It's bad luck to go into combat berets them on (in the VDV) but It will help Identify my NCO's.|
|From Redstar Minitures, a great new company. Modern Ruskie helms.|
|These are mainly Interior Ministry Troop heads (MVD)..I may use a couple though. Perhaps for Spetsnaz?|
|Maxmini aks...I'll have mostly these, but some lasguns too.|
|Dragunov. I only have one sniper in my army list. But perhaps I could do up some 'Ratlings'|
|I'll give my flamer vet squad these. Maxmini again.|
|If I cut the box things of regular cadian helmets, it will look like this. But should I just leave the helmets?|
|I can convert the cadian helmet to be a K6-3. Only problem is, doesn't fit with airborne theme. WAY too heavy.|
I'll use a few berets, for my srgts.
|Revell 1:48 Mil-Mi 24 'Hind'. THIS!!! Will probably buy this after some Cadians and the bitz seen on this page.|
With regards to the valk/vendetta conversion, should I get some TL lascannons and a multilaser? To 40kify it a bit more? I'm still going to keep the rotor blades. I don't think I need to convert the rocket pods (see pic). Perhaps I can convert the nose machine gun to be a multilaser. Otherwise it can be cut back. The equipment on my real vendetta snapped off.
