Relictors Space Marine Company Veterans w/ Storm Shields

Hello All, thanks for having a look-see, another year almost done of mini painting and I continue painting to try and get the backlog into a reasonable sane size! lol.

I've painted up some Company Veterans with Storm Bolters and Storm Shields, because in 8th - why not!? Storm Shields for non Characters are dirt cheap and Storm Bolters now put out 4 shots each with Bolter Discipline. 20 shots and a 3++ save means these can threaten most squads bigger than them and can be a resilient objective holder.
This is the Veteran Sergeant, a normal Terminator Storm Shield and the Storm Bolter from the fabled Army Box Veteran. His helmet crest is from the Burning of Prospero plastics as is the MKIII Iron Armour. I painted his hand as a augmetic replacement bionic hand.
The Company Veterans are all based on MKIII Iron Armour plastics with various Storm Bolters from kits, Devastator / Sternguard / Terminators. The Storm Shields are actually Breacher Siege Squad Boarding Shields from Forge World. They suit the MKIII Iron Armour nicely.
The armour is painted Army Painter Uniform Grey which is a match for Dawnstone/Codex Grey and washed Nuln Oil and highlighted Administratum Grey/Fortress Grey. Bases as always Mournfang Brown/Karak Stone and Ushabti Bone.
I love the MKIII plastics, I think MKIII Iron Armour is my favourite Mark of Astartes Armour, if I did a Horus Heresy Force it would comprise mostly of Iron Armour I reckon! I am glad I can use it here. I previously have done a couple of Company Veterans similar to this, who used to form the veterans of the Command Squad, now no longer a Codex option but still the old school make up of a traditional Battle Company in my head! I also have a squad of Devastators in MKIII too, from the more expensive resin FW Armour Marks of old.
And here on the battlefield striding forward into the thickest of the fighting behind their near impenetrable Storm Shields... thanks for dropping by.

Have a great miniature filled Christmas/Holidays, Cheers, Siph. (5 points)
