Imperial Guard/Astra Militarium Sentinel.

Imperial Guard/Astra Militarium Sentinel.

Hi guys, so today i thought i would share with you my Imperial guard, or what they now like to call it, Astra Militarism, Sentinel.

I know theres a lot of you thinking, why on earth is it yellow? well that was because it was originally going to be part of an "Aliens" themed Imperial guard army. 

I never really got that far with the army, all i did was some Colonial marines as guardsmen, a company command and this sentinel. sad really!  I'm sure we all have those times we get great ideas, then never continue with them!

Anyway, this was one of the first models i attempted to paint using the forge world model masterclass book and i feel it really helped. 

Even if you only learn one or two techniques from a whole book, its still extra tricks you have in your belt! thats what i enjoy, once you put all those techniques and tricks together, they create something good! but by themselves they are just a bit of colour applied in a certain way!

I hope you like it! has any one else ever attempted to do an "Aliens" themed Imperial guard army?

The Sentinel is a one-man all-terrain bipedal vehicle, used by the Imperial Guard when firepower must be deployed rapidly and particularly in areas of difficult terrain that would immobilise heavier battle tanks. Sentinels march beside the regiments of the Imperial Guard laying waste to the foe without breaking stride.
