Operational Detachment Alpha deploys from the drop pod.

I might try and go back and do some lining work, but the more I look at these the more I like 'em.

Light grey basecoat, Army Painter Strong tone, army painting khaki color painted for the pouches and such.

Maybe I'll add some decals to their shoulders too...

What do you guys think?


  1. Lovely image Mr Harold!

    Try the decals. I would like to see them close up.


  2. With a fiery blast of retro rocket exhaust and a dazzling release of countermeasures, the pod seemed to touch down faster than any human passenger could have survived. But the element of surprise was critical for survival, and within seconds the blast doors were open and the troopers within had sprung out of their re-entry gel and into the dry grass of the clearing, seeking covered defensive positions and assessing any potential threats.

    Niiice. The really do need some livening up though. Low-contrast khaki may be militarily accurate but it makes for rather plain figures.

    1. Awesome description :)

      Any ideas for livening them up? I have their logo I might try and make decals with...

    2. Jeepers, if you can make decals that small I say go for it. Maybe some (subdued) colour markings of some kind too.

  3. Good looking picture, great work!
