As some of you may know, I started a GT project the other week - a stormtrooper army funnily enough. But after mulling over the effectivness of such an army, I decided to can the project and start another one.

The army Ive chosen? - the good old Space marines. With a larger budget, cool FW models available and more conversion possibilities I popped down to Warhammer world and parted with some hard earned cash.

What did I buy? - A good place to start was to get a Tactical squad, I also bought some of the brass etched Imperial Eagles to use as a chapter symbol. I also bought a Razorback for them to zoom around the battlefield in. I also bought some extra armour and Imperial Eagle doors for said Razorback (although the doors were out of stock). I also bought the first of 3 Landspeeder Tornados and a nice FW Venerable Dreadnought with CC weapon and Assault cannon (again, out of stock on the AC).

Now for some pictures:

The purchases of the day -

The army will be themed in an urban warzone (lots of converted bases) and the colour scheme will be similar to my last marine army. Except this time I wont rush them and my painting has improved a lot.

So here is a picture of a test model for the colourscheme. (note its not finished)

Drat!!! As a fan of the much maligned (and perenially under-achieving) Stormtrooper army I was hoping to see your army completed. Oh well...

Shiny, another project!

Looking forward to seeing this army completed, particularly if you spend a good deal of time on it.

You might want to magnetise the Venerable Dreadnaught's arms and the Razorback's weapons, especially if you're not pleased with how they're performing after you've finished painting them. It definitely gives you more options.

Anyway, if you have any need of bitz, don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail, and I'll see what I can do.

All the very bestest,

As I want to have an urban them to this army, Ive been searching the internet for ideas. I then remembered the site that sells resin bases. So I ordered some urban bases.
Heres the link: http://www.wargamesworkshop.com/ProductList.aspx?CatID=5&DivID=31&GrpID=223

Now all I can do is wait for these bases to arrive before I can start the construction properly. In the mean time, I can prep the FW models and marine bodies.

After a small clearout in search of some spare bits, I found some old Ultramarines. They werent the best painted minis in the world, but I had used regal blue for them and I thought about the colourscheme for this army.

So I found an unpainted terminator and went to work to see how my skills have improved. I decided to use the layering technique because that would take a while and encourage my skills, as my last marine army was just a coat of DA green and had no depth to them.

I started by covering the entire model in a coat of midnight blue. Once this was dry I layered a few coats of regal blue, leaving the midnight blue in the recesses. I am pleased with how it has turned out. Below is a picture as it is at the moment. I am still to highlight the armour, pick out the details etc. The face is ok, but I havent painted one for a long time. I am basing it tonight as well to see how the colourscheme goes with an urban base.

Let me know what you guys think. I am willing to listen to sugestions.

Sorry about the lighting. Got one of those energy saving lamps. Hope you can see what Im on about.

Great Harlequin
15-04-2006, 18:26
I definitely like the blue, as you say it certainly has a lot of depth. Very striking. And when you get round to highlighting it should look quite splendid, as there'll be a good deal of contrast - which, I think is the key to making them look good. For instance, this Ultramarines' army (http://s8.photobucket.com/albums/a46/Harliez/Other/?action=view&current=Veterans.jpg) really benefited from a light highlight.

The face is excellent, even more so considering you haven't done one for a while, certainly better than me at any rate. Did you use any wahses at all?

All the very bestest,

stormtrooper154
15-04-2006, 18:49
Cheers GH. No washes were used on the face. I layed up from dark flesh through dwarf flesh up to elf flesh. All the models in the final army will have helmets on anyway. Did you search for spares by the way? :D

I have based the model and painted the details on the chest. I went for white because I thought that gold would make them look too much like Ultramarines. The chapter symbol may be gold though, or it could be white also. I think the white details go well with the armour, which I have still to hightlight. I may experiment blending for that so who knows what it will look like after that!

As for the base, I think it goes well. The snow also makes the base more dynamic. The final army will be based on urban warzone bases as I mentioned earlier in the thread, so with a bit of snow they should look cool.

So here is the latest pic of my test model. The next pics should feature some blended highlights.

15-04-2006, 19:18
Right, latest pic. I have begun to highlight the armour with a mix of regal blue and skull white and come to the conlusion that my blending completely sucks. So I decided to extreme highlight it.

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f27/stormtrooper81/GT%20Space%20Marines%20project/DSC02369.jpg

I still need to come up with a name for my new chapter and a bit of background for them. One thing I have decided on is the army list, which is dictating what I buy. I have purchased a space marine bike for my HQ, a cool conversion idea for that will be done. (think blade 2) and I have also bought an assault squad, just for the legs.

Darkseer
15-04-2006, 20:12
How about "Sons of Thorne" as a chapter name? :D

Great Harlequin

I haven't searched for the running legs yet, I've been side-tracked with minor jobs all day. But, I think I have something suitable for the Librarian's weapons. I'll send you a pic once I've looked for the legs.

Yes, one thing you might want to do though is give the snow a bit more height. But, if it's a more feathered effect you're after then stick to that. Just a thought,

Great progress so far!

Ive been trying to figure out how to do my marine helmets. So i picked a duff moulded one and did a test. Any suggestions on it? Im not sure I like it.

Not sure that the Aquila is an apppropriate chapter symbol. It's the standard representation of the emperor...

Pick a chapter name and come up with an appropropriate chapter symbol from that.

other than that this is looking good :)

stormtrooper154
15-04-2006, 22:25
I know its the standard symbol for the Imperium/Emporer. Thats why I have chosen to use it. It could also represent the chapter being newly formed and still in the search for their own identity......

Whilst I am waiting for the delivery of bases and the assault marines, as well as people on traing forum (el diablo - wheres the list!) I decided to try and use the layer technique on my original proposal for a colour scheme.

This was the original colour I had gone for:
http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f27/stormtrooper81/GT%20Space%20Marines%20project/DSC02377.jpg

But it looked a little flat, so I got to work on another terminator I had lying around.
So here are a couple of wip pictures. Already I am really liking this colour more, and by layering it it looks much better.

I have finally begun to build somr of the stuff I bought the other day. Due to the fact I am waiting for bases for my troops, dreadnought and landspeeder, I thought I would start with the razorback. I am still waiting for the doors to arrive from FW so I cant complete it until they arrive.
So I have assembled the chassis and managed to get the extra armour on. It still needs the gaps filled in with GS and I am thinking of adding a mixture of sand, pva and static grass to the tracks to make it look like its been through the warzone.

Anyway, here are some wip pics for you of the razorback:

As I have said before, the green colour scheme is by far the better of the two you are thinkign about. It looks great and will contrast well with the rubbled bases you are intending to use.

Just don't tell anyone I made your army list. ;)

cyphertheory
19-04-2006, 11:25
i really like the green colour scheme for the marines there, it will make them stand out in from the urban bases, where the blue would have a tendancy to make them blend in more.

with the eagle chapter badge, it might be possible to use a symbol behind it to change it up slightly, maybe something like a lighting bolt or a sword?

i hope this goes well for you and good luck with the torney!

stormtrooper154
19-04-2006, 12:31

Hadnt really thought of that. Although had he been running, he would have been top heavy and thats with the feet being pinned to the base.

Quin 242
19-04-2006, 13:42
Uhm.. couldn't you have glued some sprue bits and some gravel in and gotten the same look for a lot cheaper on the bases?
Maybe drop a shoulder pad from a chaos guy here and there or a weapon or??

The models look good but that particular base seems pretty simple to replicate?

On another note.. In your sig you seem to already have an army of green guys... Why did you switch from the blue?

Luckily for me, the budget for this project is unlimited and I just fancied getting some pre-made bases cos they look cool.

I do already have a green marine army, but they are going to be sold any day now. I just like that colour - especially the bone helmets. I think my painting skills have improved since that army (which only took 2 months to paint) and I prefer catachan green. As some people have mentioned, I think blue armour would blend in with the urban bases.

stormtrooper154
19-04-2006, 14:47
I have assembled the landspeeder, the pilot and gunner are not glued in, they will be pinned because it will be easier to paint them and the cockpit later on. I really like the landspeeder models, but they are a real bugger to put together so tomorrow I hope to greenstuff some of the gaps and remove the elastic band with the hull stuck together.

I have also included a picture of the base for my lanspeeder. I still need to start the dreadnought and finish the first razorback (once the doors arrive).

Very nice, I wlove the green scheme, looks great, The blue looks nice, however having only one MAIN colour (being dark blue) isnt something I personally like, I would go for the green. Please tell me what colours you used to get that touch? And will you please post the army list that you will be using, perhaps I can assist you with that before you start buying more models, de to the fact of me most probably beng more helpful with the army rather than the models hehe ;)

i see your using epicast bases. There nice bases but they don't suit marines well for general standing about and trying to cut into them isn't very easy. Plus im not sure because they look like they ahve been sprayed that using another coat on your marines won't blur some of the detail out. Otherwise looking nice!

Thats the reaseon Ive gone for the running look :p The bases appear to be made from dark resin and all the marines are pinned to their bases because running legs fall over at the best of times.
The part about obscuring detail is one of concern - particularly the rubble. But if it does come to that, a bit of sand wont do any harm. Another concern I have is that the base I got for my Dread has a big chunk of wall on it, so its going to obscure the back of the legs on him. I tried to cut it but as you said, its not easy.

As for an update, the landspeeder is having its gaps filled and the bike for my librarian has arrived. Now if only those doors turn up......

That has got to be one of the oddest lists I've ever seen.
You have a total of 10 troops in a, what, 1750 force? I'm failing to see where the Termie you painted fits in here?

Cries of cheese will be reverberating off you like yodels in a swiss mountain vally.

but if you don't care... go for it.

stormtrooper154
20-04-2006, 14:48
The GT is more than likely going to reek of cheese so Im not going to take a 'fluffy' list and get smashed in - that wouldnt be fun no would it? This army is being built specifically for the GT and may get tweaked in the future to become a little less cheesy (Carnage 07 perhaps). The list I posted needs some tweaking - 2 6 man squads instead so its not as easy for the opponent to score points from them.

If you read through the thread properly you wouldnt need to ask where the terminator fits into all this - it was a test model that I had lying around.

Like it....army list is (even though some say cheesy) absolutley pethetic.......even for a tourny army....are you seriously going to take THAT to the tourny......you need to rethink this totaly!
take 2 vindis instead of 3....3 is a waste of pts as 1/3 usualy even hit!
Not many troops, soo easy to kill, starcannons will eat these squads.
Razorbacks will draw fire from all light anti-tank, they wont last long.
Librarian is a nuisance, but by himself, is ptless!
The only thing that will work are the dreas and the land speeder.
Oh is this 1500 or 1750? Of 1750 I am extremely disapointed. You need more troops, they are invaluble!
Rethink this, even for a GT this is too smal....i.e. my marine army has 7 vehicles and 40 men. 5 lascannons, 3 missile launchers.....your vehicles will not survive long as thats all you have!
The painting looks like its coming along and good choice of colour ;)

Thanks for your opinions, they have been noted. GT is 1500pts and as stated earlier in the thread, it needs tweaking. Cheesy? - yes, tough? - potentially. 3 ordance templates at st10 hitting things is gonna cause damage.

Anyway, time for an update. Forgeworld order arrived today so I managed to fit the doors to the razorback. I have also managed to paint the breastplate of the marine, as well as start some highlighting.

for the gt just remember demolishers are twenty four inch range you will see lots of lascannons (greater range) and manouverable armies with an equivalent (eldar, dark eldar, necrons, tau) you need bodies to pin these races into plce to bring these weapons into range. One technique which seems pleasant at first is two whirlwinds dropping minefields in the line of fall back for armies and them press them with lots of rapid firing marines and hvy bolter ass canon land speeders and a demolisher. they either have to stand there and take it or fall back through minefields to get out of range. if you remove an armies ability to manouevere it is dead. pick your poison,

for the gt just remember demolishers are twenty four inch range you will see lots of lascannons (greater range) and manouverable armies with an equivalent (eldar, dark eldar, necrons, tau) you need bodies to pin these races into plce to bring these weapons into range. One technique which seems pleasant at first is two whirlwinds dropping minefields in the line of fall back for armies and them press them with lots of rapid firing marines and hvy bolter ass canon land speeders and a demolisher. they either have to stand there and take it or fall back through minefields to get out of range. if you remove an armies ability to manouevere it is dead. pick your poison,

I like the sound of the Whirlwinds. Cheap on points too. Im thinking of ditching the Libby for a cheaper captain. Im sure I can come up with a competitive list that can take on all comers.

removing an enemies ability to manouever is one straight out of tsung su's art of war so cant claim credit. however in first couple of turns when your laying minefields your opponent will think hooray hes not killing me then when you spring your trap penny should drop and hell go "you b*****d"

Yeah. Anyway, I have tweaked the list. You can find it here. (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?p=623305#post623305)

The Space Marine look really cool. If you are attending Heat 1, would it be ok if I came across your army to take photos of them.

Yes I will PM you a copy of them.

Look forward to seeing them in the flesh :D

Things are changing here. The colourscheme needs some reworking. I am still doing a marine army but the details will be changing (basing, environmental setting). I have had a moment of creative inspiration - just before a holiday though :( but the idea i have in my head is cool and I think you will like it.
Its back to the drawing board.

yep, i am indeed hopeless :rolleyes:

Its after looking at some of the other projects (lavs) and i need more conversions. I have come up with a couple of ideas, im just not convinced about painting another green marine army.
