By the grace of Goodwin, I love these models.
Classic Copplestone (not Goodwin, he's just awesome too) sculpts, I feel the separate arms troopers were a real progression from the single pieces, which do have a charm of their own but lack the uniformity that guardsmen should have and still feel a bit gestational 40k with an obvious Judge Dredd heritage.
I've got about a score of unique models in the range (I'm pathological about unique models) which I intend to use as a ships' garrison complement - for shulk, inq28, whatever. Apropos to the boarding actions they're supposed to fight, and to fit in with the single-piece wounded trooper (love him) I've converted the classic lasguns - yes it did feel a little wrong - into more of a las-carbine with a bayonet from the plastic Cadians (which happily adds some of the length back to the model). You can also see I turned the useless grenade launcher - by far the weakest bit of sculpting in the range imho - into a shulk suitable flamer.
So the only problem I have now is how to paint them!
Being ship bound they've no need for camouflage or drab unifroms; could be anything. I'd like to avoid the old RT grey and black scheme as just a bit dull, and I'd like to avoid orange/red/yellow because of star wars/praetorians/bleugh, but otherwise I'm open to ideas anyone? I failed to find anything inspiring in google image searches...
