View Full Version : Just bought a box of SPace Marines.

I'm baaaack! Brimmy's passing made me feel nostalgic and I decided to get back in and start painting a couple of armies up. I've bought myself some space marines-now I just have to decide how to paint them. Any of you old timers got advice for me?

I've always liked the Sythes of the Emperor. They have roots that go all the way back to Space Crusade. I've always liked the color scheme of the Pre-heresy Luna Wolves, but I've recently fell for the Red Scorpions. Just my inputs. Culln out.

You could start by posting in the correct forum, you silly n00b. :p

What happened to your Howling Griffons, though? Or are you gonna be all cool and modern and find another obscure chapter you can show off to the kids while you tell them about how much better everything was back when Priestley and Chambers were the top dogs. If so, I vote Marines Malevolent. Or Rainbow Warriors.

Oh, and welcome back, TitusAndrogynous.

Angry Marines every day all the way.

Failing that, do a DIY chapter.

I second that.

Oh, and welcome back, TitusAndrogynous.

I second that too.

Hmm... You also mentioned white & blue, how about them? http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Sons_of_Guilliman

Welcome to the side with the power armour.

NOt bad. Not bad at all. I'm torn though. I still love my Howling Griffons and I regret letting them go. I may well end up going back to my old HG's. Let me think on it.

Welcome to the side with the power armour.

I've been a Space Marine for a lot o' years now :)

Cool. Good luck with your army. I'd paint them something blue, but then I'm getting tired of painting red in the mad rush to get ready for April. Personally, I've been thinking lately that it would be cool to do a Pre-Heresy Emperor's Children army, but then I can't even remember what their colors are like right now.

If you love the Howling Griffons, then do the Howling Griffons.
