Today I put the finishing touches on my Dire Avenger squad. They were painted in their traditional paint scheme with the addition of green, purple and yellow touches to tie them in to the army's general colour scheme. The rune and ying-yang symbol are decals.

The Exarch
2nd Edition metal Avengers.
We were guardians once...some of the old metal guardian models that were drafted into the Dire Avengers.
