Adeptus Arbites Squad


I have finally finished my Adeptus Arbites squad. This is the 812th Squad from the 77th Parish.



The Repressor is the Forge World kit, I have pretty much built it as is.


The infantry are made from Cadians. The shotguns are cut down lasguns. I took off the muzzle, sight, charge pack and stock to make a combat shotgun. The heads are from Pig Iron and I used resin bases. I havered over the shields but eventually scratch-built them from thin plastic. They are covered in varnish because the plastic was too transparent. The varnish makes them a little opaque and more in keeping with a repressor field. They are liberally armed with grenades.


The officer is a Spyglass Imperial Captain and is armed with a power sword and plasma pistol. The sergeant has a bolt pistol and power maul.



They can be played as Imperial Guard veterans with carapace armour. Use the commissar rules for the officer.

  2. Very nice - I like that Repressor model. The shields look great, although you should try some Tamiya Clear Blue on them, just to give that forcefield hue. Any of the other Tamiya Clear colours would work, but would also provide a strong contrast to the uniform colour.

  6. Fantastic kitbash and scratchbuild! I was building a unit last week with cut down lasguns to be used as shotguns, now I know where the inspiration came from. Thank you.

  9. An excellent use for all of those blister packs....

    And I like the work on the captain figure, very nicely done. Also jealous of your repressor.
