And so, along comes January and a new painting challenge on the Oldhammer Facebook group. The rules of 'Naismithery' are simple - pick one or more models sculpted by Bob Naismith and paint it within the month of January. It just so happens that Bob sculpted both No Face and Kylla...

I put together a 5-man squad comprising of two Imperial Light Troopers (Fargo), one Garrison Trooper (Conditti) and two conversions.
The bare-headed trooper (right above) is simply a Garrison Trooper with the head from Major Magnum from Citadel's Rogue Trooper range - a figure also sculpted by Bob Naismith.
The Commando officer was made from Major Magnum with the Garrison Trooper head and some extensive over-sculpting.

I may yet repaint the officer's bionic eye blue as I'm not entirely happy with the red, but for now it's done!
I enjoyed painting this squad very much - they were relatively quick but look pretty striking. In fact I'm already assembling some other figures to add a second squad and some specialists.
