First Mantis Warriors Tactical Squad
When I was considering options for the Mantis Warriors thousand points, I was originally keen to have full tactical squads. However, I wanted to have more jump troops than infantry or vehicles, so the initial build got curtailed a bit. To save on points, I opted to build two tactical squads of five marines each, armed only with bolters.
Bitz from both Tactical squad and Death Company boxed sets were used to build the marines. I used bolter arms with a strap to denote the sergeant. Otherwise the models were kept to simple adornment, with only grenades and a pouch for each model.
I stuck to the same painting scheme as the previous Mantis Warrior models, and while I have noticed some improvement in the quality of the chapter symbol, it hasn't been as consistent as I would like.
