When I created this one I did wonder if the head proportions worked with it being an older metal part, but with a bit of green stuff I think it has worked out okay.
On reflection, the skin tone needs to be paler. Maybe I’ll do some work to address that and take some better photos.
The chainglaive wielding, jump pack equipped character will lead a squad of similarly equipped marines.
In all pretty happy with this one so far, but will undoubtedly do some more work on him.
I’m on the fence with the parade / dress uniform winged helms. This one was already painted when I picked up the model so I’ve only made a few changes to make it fall in line with the 19th.
The Skull Reapers shun the crimson red wings of their brothers in other companies within the fallen chapter.
The new Chaos Space Marine figures have been out for a while now and I thought it’d be good to add a few into the ranks of the 19th Company. Here’s the first half of a new 10 man squad.
I’ve been reading the Night Lords omnibus courtesy of the Black Library recently so will take some inspiration from this in making the squad a diverse mixture of armour types.
There’s a further 10 man squad of the new figures in base coat and another 10 on the way via a Shadowspear boxed set.
I decided to make all of my 8 marine squads up to 10 so have started adding to the ranks. Here’s a couple more Assault squad troops.
That took far too long as I have been spending time working on the eldest son’s Bad Moon Orks and the youngest’s Blood Angels, but finally finished the 5th Night Lord Havoc for the new squad
Managed to get another two of the big gun wielding marines completed, just one more to go now…
So Codexes at hand and basic 8th Edition rules and my first 40k game in over 20 years and my Night Lords take a beating from my 8 year old son’s Bad Moon Orks. I think we made it three rounds before boredom for small people set in. Still it generated enthusiasm and left plenty of food for thought for the next game.
Traitor Marines with miniguns, just had to have them.
Even if the weapon stats are a bit naff, enjoyed painting these up.
Added some paint to one of the built-but-not-painted Raptor squads.
I used the red accents on the weapons with one of my Havoc units and liked it, so tried the same again here. Not sure I like it as much. They just feel quite busy.
When edge highlighting I went a shade lighter than normal and didn’t like the outcome. In the end I toned it down with a couple of basecoat washes.
Still need to do some talon equipped breatheren. Next time I do jumpy dudes it’s happening!
I’ve a backlog of raptors assembled and waiting for paint. This unit was already assembled and painted as a unit of 8, yet was in need of a refresh.
Searched the bits box for the relevant parts and assembled the two missing squad members.
Pleased with how these came out and now thinking about converting a squad of the others into Warp Talons…
