Day 3 of ‘a model a day’; today I present a Skitarii Hypaspist. They are the regular ground infantry of the Mechanicus expeditions – the equivalent of Imperial soldiers. For this reason they are often referred to as ‘Tech Guard’.
The model is based on Forgeworld’s Death Korps of Krieg models, with a minor change to the head. A tutorial for creating this can be seen here.
Each maniple (squad) of hypaspists consists of 12 models and I intend to field 2 maniples. Hopefully I will sneak in the other 21 in between articles!
