Relon, 3rd Tactical Squad, 3rd Company, Red Scorpions

With Veteran Sergeant Relon's 3rd Squad I am only one more Tactical Squad away from my total of four that I'd like to field.
It is coming with my standard loadout: Plasmagun, Missile Launcher and Powerfist.

Commander Carab Culln, 1st Company, Red Scorpions

You just cannot play Red Scorpions without having the man himself: Carab Culln - special character available as model made by Forgeworld.
I bought this guy a couple of years ago when he first was released but never assembled it nor did I paint it for a long time. I had to realise that my model was not exactly Forgeworld's best cast. I removed flash and cleaned it as good as I was able to and finally painted it with the same colours as my power armoured troops. This is the result:

 Commander (Captain) Carab Culln, 1st Company, Red Scorpions Chapter
Alternatively I can use him as Lord High Commander (Chapter Master), giving him a better profile and better equipment.
The power sword was painted like those of my Terminator Sergeant and my Epistolary's force weapon.
Master-crafted Stormbolter

Vries, 2nd Tactical Squad, 3rd Company, Red Scorpions

It's again been a while since I have posted any updates for my Astartes army. I play Tau since they were released in 3rd edition and have only started to collect a Space Marine army again cause I got bored of my blue-headed xenos. :-)
Anyways, here is the next troops choice of my Red Scorpions army: 2nd Squad under the command of Veteran Sergeant Vries.

Veteran Sergeant Vries, leading his battle-brothers into combat.

Members of Vries' demi-squad bear a yellow stripe on their boltguns. The Sergeant himself has a power fist and his brothers can rely on an Astartes missile launcher should they have need for heavy fire power.
Demi-squad Zoran. Lead by the charismatic Veteran-brother Zoran, the second demi-squad engages enemies over great distances, making use of their Boltgun's scopes. They also have an Astartes Mk. VII Plasmagun against better armored foes of the Imperium.
