So, I have been working on 6 Kommandos, including Snikrot and here is what I have come up with. I am mostly proud, and think they'll look better with paint and a base on them.
I have shrunk the images down, so for larger images click on them.
So, snikrot got a new backpack with more stuff and (because pretty much everyone suggested it) some goggles. I am not done yet, they need some GS work to show they're being held on to his head.
The others all have similar faces as I wanted goggles and a more 'stealthy' feel to them. I did try to give them a bit of different looks and feels which I hope to expand with the future addition of more models - something I think I'll need as 6 models might not be enough.
Two of them have burnas, so nothing to really show there. I didn't think of any other way to make them more interesting and looked like they could be moved quickly through dense ground. I might make more for later squads, with a flamer more akin to the Space Marine flamer. Something more compact and manoeuvrable would look good I feel.
For my colour scheme I am looking more along the lines of doing these guys with a scheme that matches - almost - the bases. So with a desert theme, see my deffkopta for more, they will be a lot of browns and light yellows. And even then the scheme shall be a cammo pattern because these guys are sneaky.
I do need to sort stuff out for the bases, some sort of desert looking brush and bushes along with stones.
