I've finally made a start on my White Scars army, including heresy-era stuff.

A Mk6 tactical marine.

The old style bolters were quite easy to convert with some strips of plasticard, and I'm pleased with how they turned out. More solid looking and suitably sized with the current bolter. I haven't filed the rims off the right shoulder pads yet.

I'm still debating about which pads to use on which early armour Mk, but I think the champion pads look more brutal and look better on the Mk3. Also, the Mk3 led on to terminator armour, so I figure the extra plating on the shoulders is appropriate.

Should the Mk4 have the rimmed pads on both sides or just on the left shoulder?

Cool stuff so far, interested to see how you go as im planning a Battle for Earth Era White Scars army after my Alphas.

Champion pads on the Mk3 certainly suit, for Mk4 ive been using rimmed pads on both sides, symmetrical seems more logical for the "perfect" astartes plate.

Brings back memories. White Scars was my first army many, many years ago. These are looking great so far. Can't wait to see more.

Thanks for the replies. :)

@tagsta - the Mk5 head took a lot of careful cutting and filing! Not that easy. Unfortunately the head lacks detail on its right side, so I'll probably have to break out the green stuff for the next few.

If you paint as well as you convert, these guys are going to rock. I love me some White Scars!
