Praetorians on Parade

At the weekend the Praetorian IV mechanised infantry were involved in the defence of Magnus Hive, while data is collated and reports are written here are a few photos of the army that I managed to take after the battle.

Stay tuned in the coming days for the battle report...

Psychic reinforcements

What with psychic powers being revamped in 6th Edition I decided it was finally time to add a psyker to my army! (Apologies for the dark photo!) He will be thrown into action this weekend along with the Macharius in defence of Magnus Hive...

This guy will be a primaris psyker for my guard and follows the same colour scheme as the rest of the army with the addition of a purple sash to differentiate his uniform. The staff is painted in a dark black and green marble which I will gloss varnish when I've had a chance to matt varnish him. It's the standard psyker model because I had a few kicking about, also I'm not sure I'm a fan of the Primaris model.

The question is do I keep him with the standard 2D6 S6 AP5 shots or try out the new powers... any body use Primaris Psykers? What are you thoughts for getting the most out of him?
