Praetorian Guard

I am pleased, I am very pleased. I have finally managed to get my hands on some Praetorian Guard models. No, not the Necrons version - the special edition Imperial Guard Praetorians! I have wanted some for ages, but they have tended to sell for far more than I have been willing to pay.
I managed to get hold of 10 for a reasonable price, and have another 10 coming. These are the ones currently in my possession:
They will make nice veterans allies for my Grey Knights army. Basically I want some long range fire power to support my GKs, and the Leman Russ is such a nice tank: cheap, tough (apart from the back) and with a massive punch! So, a couple of Squads of Praetorians as Veterans with a Leman Russ (picked up from Salute 2013).
I want to paint them in the classic Zulu style, which is after all what they were meant to be:
I had a Praetorian Sergeant lying around for a while so used him as my trail run:
I am never going to be a great painter, but I think he has come out alright. I am looking forward to getting both squads done and fielding them along side my GKs.


  1. He's looking fine. He'll fit in well on the tabletop!

    1. Thank you. I think once they are all done, the overall impression of them all together will be quite nice.
