Traitor Guard Armored Sentinel Squad

Traitor Guard Armored Sentinel

I admit it, I’m a tread head and a star wars geek, so when I was building up my Traitor Guard, not only did I fill it with a bunch of tanks, but had to add at least a couple of Sentinels. So here is my Traitor Guard Armored Sentinel squad armed with plasma cannons.

I built up the bases using extra bits and sprue then filled in the bumps with plaster with a final layer of gravel on top. Conversions were fairly simple. The eagles on the front were cut off, and a chaos star was bent around the front of one and two Chaos Vehicle plates were added to the front of the other. With a bit of green stuff, I also added a bit of demonic presence to the one.

Since sentinels are a bit taller than the tanks, the orange to red transition was a bit longer and by the time it got to the feet, they were pretty dark red. To give them some definition I dusted the edges with the layer coats of the base for weathering.

I also magnetized the weapons, but in hindsite, it was a silly thing to do since the plasma glow was spread onto the actual hull – can’t really magnetize that.

While the sentinels in games have always been a bit unpractical, I love the aggressive stance and look of the armored sentinels striding forward. I think because of this they often became an early target in games – sometimes more so than the bigger tanks.

Something about two angry looking plasma cannons – even if BS3 means they will often veer way off target more times than not.

  • They look dang cool. I really like the transition of the orange you have done. it is very effective

    • Oh and I had a chuckle about the osl on the hull. Sound like something I would do 😀

      • Thanks NafNaf! Yeah one of those oops moments, oh well, who doesn’t like plasma cannons?

  • The orange is great, and really helps that OSL pop. Fantastic bases as well! The osl could work as decaying rot or something nurgly going on, so you could probably still swap weapons in and out!

    • Thanks Greg! I didn’t think about nurgle blessing these guys as well, that might work…

  • They look great. Almost makes me want to work on a renegade contingent but I have to focus on Khorne for now.

    That’s the catch with magnetizing, you’re limited a bit on what you can do with painting, namely OSL. The snag is if you do OSL then you want to carry it to the model but then it can be off with other magnetized options. On the other hand, having OSL that doesn’t carry to the model can look off as well. Such are the compromises we make for practicality.

    • Thanks Thor! That’s the kicker about watching other blogs – so much inspiration, so little time.
      Yeah this was one of my first magnetization attempts and while I got all the polarity right, some of the details slipped.
