Storm Troopers Painted

My two small units of Stormies, painted.

Squad 1:  Brown fur trim on the hats:

Squad 2: Grey fur trim:

These guys were a fair bit of work, but ultimately worth it to get Storm Troopers that fit in with the Vostroyans.

Storm Troopers Ready for Paint

A quick update on my two squads of Storm Troopers; the building and conversion work is done.  I included the prototype with the remainder of his squad.  One thing about Stormies; unlike most other IG units, the Sergeant has the exact same equipment as the Squad, so I used the posing as the means of distinguishing the Sarge from his squad.   In this squad, he's waving his squad forward, while in the other squad the sergeant is pointing at their (destination/target/whatever)

I realized rather belatedly that I missed an opportunity for distinguishing one squad from the other -- the ear flaps on the hats; up versus down.  I'll just have to do it with the color of the fur trim on the hats instead, like I did with the Vostroyans.

Bjorn? Is that you?

Is it just me or would this new Contemptor pattern dreadnought just make a great Bjorn?  Fluff-wise Bjorn is the oldest of dreads in existence so this guy would just make all kinds of sense.  So I'm really tempted to buy one of these to wolf up into a Bjorn.
