As usual my plans to keep to a regular painting schedule don't last long. A combination of work and general apathy conspired to stop me from finishing any miniatures for the last week and a half. Today I managed to find a couple of hours to at least take photos of the starts of my first command squad based around the Legion Champion and Communications Marines.
The company champion was another miniature that I wasn't particularly happy with originally. The yellow was fine but the original scheme didn't include metal plate edges. These were added on after the completed model had already received a coat of varnish.
However I think the metal bands make for a much crisper border for the main armour plates and combined with my usual practice of a thinned oil paint wash, has made the model hang together much more sucessfully.
