On painting up the Riflemen I went with the same scheme I used for my guild guard. I figured that the grey would work out well, and stippled the coat with some lighter and darker greys to add in some of the "camouflage" that I infer from the Rifleman fluff. I am pretty happy with how they came out, and I suspect they will look very good in a crew with my guardsmen. I am considering putting together a quick picture of Lucius plus some dogs, guardmen, and riflemen.
Snow Storm looks really good when standing with the rest of my Rasputina crew. This is another picture I am thinking about taking, with the whole Raspy crew set-up together. There was some small gap filling required on Snow Storm, and I was actually surprised when I saw what flash needed to be cleaned up. When I originally looked at the pieces I did not think the flash was as bad as I had heard from others who built this model. This was one of the few resin models that Wyrd released, and there was some complaints when he was first released. The flash does not look bad on a glance, but upon actually cleaning and assembling the model it is found between many of the hair strands and fur on the Yeti. This ended up being a lot more work than I expected to clean up.
