Rogue Trader Era Imperial Guard Project – Medic

Humans, Warhammer 40K

This guy is the medic for the command squad sculpted by Mark Copplestone.  It’s of 1989 vintage and is a quaint sculpt with regard to how the medikit on his back connects flush to the breastplate on his right hand side whilst on the opposite side the there is a space where the uniform and belt are visible making the whole assembly an asymmetrical design.

I decided not to paint anything larger than a button red on this model and I chose to use a metallic green for the helmet badge and a more green tinted uniform colour than the other models in the squad.  Colour wise it is going to be hospital greeens rather than red-cross reds for this force.

He has really cool boots which are quite different from the other models in the set which are generally only riding boots style things or boots & goulashes.

I went for a very dark skin tone for this chap as I knew I wanted to have white equipment.  I like how the dark skin tone contrasts with the gold framing the breast plate and white helmet.
