Right now I have enough Retined Knights to form two 10-man squads each with two support weapons. For the sake of better pictures I will present my force in detachments of 5.
|Detachment with Rocket launcher...I'll use the guy with the "pistol" as my squad leader|
|Detachment centered on a Heavy Bolter|
I also have this old Citadel Dreadnought that will support them.
The real problem I've been having is in trying to decide how to paint them. I don't want to feel constrained by traditional "chapter colors"...these will not be Ultra Marines! I'm leaning toward using something slightly more "realastic"...meaning that their PJs might actually be practical as camouflage. And since I will be using these guys mostly on terrain that represents a ships or building interior I'm think a dark gray...or possibly blue gray could work....but I do wnat them to look good on the table too...? If you have any suggestions please feel free to share your ideas.
In my next post we can start to look at the Chaos Renegades that I have managed to assemble to oppose the Emperor's minions.
