View Full Version : Headbands and Do-rags

08-11-2009, 04:29 PM
So I'm finally coming close to finishing my first 500 points of Imperial Guard. There is a total of 80 Catachan models with 76 left to paint. I'm having a bit of trouble making up my mind about what color to paint their headbands. Should they all be one color, or should I mix them up? Originally I was planning on giving each squad their own headband color as a method to keep things organized. Unfortunately, as my army grows and my 10 man squads are upgraded to include heavy weapons and special weapons, I'll find myself with a series of mismatched models.

Well the theme behind a catachan army is a bit mismatched, that is part of the idea I think so I wouldn't worry too much about that. What I would say is that you have to be whole hearted- either use it as part of the identification system (say a color for company and a number of squad, or squad colors, or whatever you come up with) or don't use it at all.
