One more unit to go and the base on my Titan to paint and I am done, done, never call me mother.
The irony is that I don't play 40K at the moment. The last two versions have utterly failed to capture my imagination.

Oh and their support for less government regulation by interfering busy bodies like James Bond.
I decided to paint my model in a pale blue suit as the flesh colour was a bit insipid on something 28mm high.
The base is from Gladius Game Arts. I can't remember where I got the model (Copplestone? 7TV? Anyone know?).

First up is the officer, a Golden Pheasant. They were the Nazi Party bosses who wore brown uniforms tinted with red and gold. Most of them sent the Hitler Youth out to die and then pissed off to the American lines with their mistresses and boxes of portable loot. But a few stayed to fight. They were of course, useless.
This one has chosen a blonde German Bund Deutscher Mädel (Band of German Maidens) as his aide. She is wearing a Hitler youth uniform with a brown party overcoat.
And finally a sniper with a gun that shoots around corners.
This is a great set of colourful characters: highly recommended.

In 1944 HSAG in Germany designed a shoulder-launched AA missile system called the Fliegerfaust - plane-fist. It fired up to nine unguided spin stabilised AA missiles in a ripple up to 500 metres. Around 80 were produced (from 10,000 ordered) in 1945. At least one was used as there is a picture of expended missiles in a photo taken in Berlin.
The models are from Warlord Games 'Last Levy' collection.
