New Ätherbattalion Tropical Service Uniform


WARM WEATHER FASHIONS FOR THE KAISER'S INTERPLANETARY TROOPS

Good readers, as you can see, we have received a photostat of a potential new tropical uniform for the Kaiser's dreaded Ätherbattalion troops. This officer sports a white tunic with black trim, feldgrau trousers with black trim, and black leather equipment. If you look closely, you can see the gold lace around the cuffs and epaulets, indicating this is an officer. The red and gold aiguilettes indicate an officer of the KFG, leading troops armed with weapons of incredible technological capacity for destruction. This particular officer carries a Kettenschwert, or 'chainsword,' and some sort of miniaturised spyglass.

[Editor's Note: This is another Mordian Iron Guard figure from GW. In their universe, he's a lowly sergeant, but such a resplendent uniform deserves promotion, so I made him an officer. Obviously, he's not finished yet. He's another repainted eBay purchase, as well. Anyway, I though I'd throw together an example of the white blouse/black trim option that is on the poll. I also tried a white trouser/gray tunic/red trim variant, but I am really not happy with it, so that's not going to happen. It looked very Russian.]
