Here are some of my and my wifes Space Marines, those that are finished or at least almost finished.

I hope to build and paint at least a force of 2k points for each Legion.
Lets start with the Blood Angels I'm painting for my wife.

Nice neat painting. 2k of each legion is going to look pretty cool once you've finished.

My mistake ;) my wifes Blood Angels are more then "just" 2k points

I still need to assemble:
A Stormraven
two Baal Predators

I need to paint:
the last five marines from the Devastator Squad
an Assault Squad
a Tactical Squad
Death Company Squad
a Razorback
three Rhinos

Saul

Strange that the orange hl on the red can't be seen on the pictures.
I've decided to do it again and used a brighter color this time, will post new pictures sooner or later.

Here are some older pictures of my two finished Death Guard squads:
The Assault Sergeant will get his e-weapon replaced by a chainsword. The rest of the 2k needs to be primed and painted, just the Contemptor as replacement for the Venerable is missing.

http://i1082.photobucket.com/albums/j378/Lorgar79/100_1310.jpg

They are finished with the exception of Legion markings and symbols.
Any coments, suggestions and advice are of course welcome.

Mr.selfdestruct
21-01-2012, 10:35
Wow, those look great all grouped together- very cohesive army. My only suggestion is to make them all look like the three weathered drop pods! The clean white is beautiful, but the dirty white is so Death Guard

Saul
21-01-2012, 13:54
thanks, but the Droppods are not weathered. It was actually a test and I've later decided to not like it ;)
I will paint a test miniature with a Gryphone Sepia wash. Depending on the result I will possibly change the rest of the army.

Next in line are the Iron Hands

Saul
14-05-2012, 23:31

Impressive production and goal mate, the blood angels look fantastic, red is a really hard colour to photograph well so don't be too worried.

The deathguard are an imposing force, I agree the wash on the pods didn't work at all.

The iron hands are looking great too, the storm shields are awesome use of the FW brass etch.

Keep it up.

Wonderful stuff so far :). I have to agree with yourself Saul and sheep, that the wash doesn't look too good.

Incredibly impressive rate of production, and to a well above average TT standard as well. Agreeing with a lot of other people, don't wash the Death Guard! Love the clean white. Kind of makes sense for the drop pods to be darker after the descent though, so they can well stay the darker white colour.

Seems like your standard of painting is improving with each army (usually, you say "each unit" here... illustrates how fast you're working quite well) as well. Will definitely follow your progress!

Cheers,
BTB

Saul

I've got to ask, which company makes the buildings in the background? The ones with the steps for bases look like nice kits. The one behind the Devs especially :)

Argreed with Jericho, those are nice buildings, may have to pick up a few :D But anyway, very minor in comparison to the AWESOME Iron Hands infront of them :p The Termis are especially good :)

Colour-test for the World Eaters is great, they'll be a stirring sight when done. Now, question, are the Wolves Post- or Pre-Heresy? I thought the latter at first, but now I'm less sure, as they're wearing the Blackmane Great Company-icon?

Saul
07-11-2012, 23:10
I would say there is a chance that prior to Ragnar another Wolve Lord used the same symbol.

Siph
07-11-2012, 23:51
Prior to the 5th Edition Codex:Space Wolves, all space wolves wore a black wolf head on yellow background. There was no such thing as different Great Company icons that I remember from Epic or Rogue Trader... but I am getting old now. Lol

Saul
08-11-2012, 07:19
If I remeber correctly the RT Space Wolves had a single yellow an/or mirrored wolves head as a badge. Isnt there a picture of the Leman Russ mini with the black wolves head on yellow field on its banner?

Just out of curiosity, how did you get current plastic arms and such to fit on the 2nd editon metals for the space wolves? I have a few of them and would love to use them but they just look goofy when I try it. Everything is looking great, I'm off to paint my Salamanders, though I admit I now want to take loads and loads of charecters after seeing your preator.

I tried different arms on each miniature until I found a pair that did fit. I used CSM, SM and SW arms.


@unwanted Those Heavy Chainswords are not very effective but I simply had to use them in my Command squad. The Nigh Lords will get some of those too :D
