I love sentinels.
The rules are great, sure they could be better but I really feel like they are a nice price point for what they do. 3 Sentinels with 9 S6 Shots out flanking you can be a terrible thing to deal with, and thats at sub 100 points. 150 points gets you the 3 man Suicide Squad, Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons, risky but fun.
Painting them is great. If you ever wanted a test model for just about anything, to see how the colour works on armor. Sents are great for that. Open Topped for people inside, variations of different armour types, pistons and an expossed engine block, several weapons and various lights, antenna etc etc.
All of these make for a good test bed. Up the top, the lead sentinel was the testbed for my Chaos Knight I built when the Knights first came out – who I will show off later in a more Chaos Guard focused list. The pure white one is my Snow theme ideas and the grey is a more urban based. Finally the blood spattered one is Luna’s testbed for painting Horus Heresy World Eaters.
I’ll do a post dedicated to my Chaos Guard and Knight later, but over the jump to see more pictures of the sentinels!
