2nd Edition Army Challenge: Scouts TO-DONE!!!


Hi folks,

As I have mentioned previously, October is a very busy time in terms of community challenges and hobby projects. My 2nd Edition Army Challenge project for this month is a little light in terms of points, a fair way shy of the 200 pt goal, but that balances out the Deathwing Terminators I did last month. The project is a squad of 5 Dark Angels scouts with close combat weapons and bolt pistols. These models are some of the first I ever bought for myself! 

The sergeant is equipped with a chainsword (2 point splurge on wargear!), but otherwise I run the squad lean and mean. Their job is to steal objectives, throw grenades and to disrupt enemy advances where possible. If I can spend a couple of extra points, I usually give the sergeant something that will damage tanks; just in case.

The other scouts are just bog standard grunts with bolt pistols and close combat weapons. Such beautiful and complicated sculpts for such simple troops! I think that was one of the reasons I loved them so much.

Next month I'll be pulling out all stops to paint a Tactical Squad with all the guns. But I have A LOT of things to paint before then.

See you across the table,



  1. Glad to see your 2nd edition army is still going, scouts look well and all.
