Brightorian standard

I've been using this design for the regimental standard for years. It is based on the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. It is a popular piece of imagery, and even looks quite cool in green (as used by Brighton and Hove council).

The 4 guardsmen are from the 40K Praetorian XXIV box set. The officer is the "disgraced commissar" from the Schaefer's last chancers box set, with the lasgun replaced by a close combat knife. The Chimera is actually a software CAD model that I rendered into the background.

Tales of the Brightorian Guard #1

These are some work-in-progress models for my 40K Imperial Guard army, the Brightorian Guard. I've been trying to put this army together for 9 years now! The trouble is I keep sodding about and changing them, usually as a result of watching bank holiday repeats of various war films on BBC. My latest distraction is a desire to give most of my miniatures calf or kid-skin boots.

Anyways....left to right is a commissar (lovely boots), a medic guardsman with his medical kit in some bags, a coms guard with bugle and storable lasgun, and a ghurka/gharka inspired officer. Next up will be some India themed guard squads, which no doubt will be altered as soon as I finished watching the Mangal Pandey film.
