Scouts are an invaluable part of any infantry regiment, as they dash through hectic war-zones, calling in high-priority targets and helping to direct air-strikes and artillery fire.
A few years back, I bought a little Cadian heavy weapon squad ([link]
) pretty much just for the fun of it. A few days ago, I found the old sprues with a bunch of unused parts on them, including most of this guy. After playing around with parts combinations, I decided to convert him into a scout. This involved repositioning his left arm, and sculpting his right arm, equipment pouches and cloak using Citadel's Green Stuff. I also used bits of styrene rods and sheets to create a scope for his lasrifle. This is also my first time using static grass when basing a figurine, and for a first try, I'd say it turned out all right.
This one's not intended to be used in any battles, it's just a fun little display piece.
