This is the second Tactical Squad I bought as part of the Strikeforce. Now I’ve got the other Tactical, Scouts, Razorback, and Drop Pod done from that box. That’s all that I’m planning to do for now, although the idea of the Deathwatch Dreadnought does intrigue me.
Once again, I’m using Custom Minis tactical shoulder pads and GW Ultramarines ones.
This is the fourth tact squad in my adult hobby career, but I use markings for the 5th squad. The first one I painted has plain blue pads. The second and third are marked I and II. I decided to use V on these, since I thought it would fit the raised arrow better than III or IV.
Of course, the special weapon is magnetized. Sadly, the only heavy that comes in the box is the missile launcher.
I finished this unit off just in time for the Inquisition War finale. It’s going to be an apoc-lite game, so it may not even be silly to have four tact squads running around.
