well, actual pictures :eek:

the first 20 mearines, though 3 are missing due to repeat blurriness, so here we go

(Disclaimer: if you can actually make anything out on these pictures, of course)



An Old Space Crusade Launcher, still needs some work though

I look forward to seeing that, and then, depending on how it looks, stealing the idea mercilessly as I'm trying to design a pair of Heresy-era forces to pit against one another. Your initial effort is much appreciated!

Looking pretty solid across the full range, next time when you're taking photos, make sure macro mode is on, you're at least 15-20cms away, and there is a load of light on them. Oh, and hold the button down not all the way before you press it down all the way, sometimes the camera adjusts it's auto zoom then.

Nice work overall :).

Nice work, but I hate the bolters with the mags at the front! That's not how guns work! :cries:

(yes I know you're acknowledging the RT ones :p)

I really like the left handed bolter and the MKVI w/ heavy bolter.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread to check on the progress. I know you're doing Sons of Horus but what colors would you go with?

I'm currently on page 330 of Horus Rising, by Dan Abnett, and they have yet to change their name or appearance.

As the Luna Wolves, the armor is described as pearl white with a black wolf head insignia on the shoulder pads. The cover art on the book has a different look than the one Abnett describes. Here's the link.


Hope that bit of info helps.

they change their colour at the Beginning of Book 2 ;)

my initial idea for schemes was shadow Grey with Kommando Khaki mixed in for hughlights, though this has yet to be tested

edit: but in the HH book, the armour is described as Pearl

That's almost how the GW studio did the skin for Ogre Kingdoms. However, I believe they used Graveyard as opposed to the Kommando. Be careful, it may turnout a bit greener than expected.

Looking good. Nice to see your conversion work is getting better from the days at the sluff store.

Are you going to make special characters from horus rising? such as Loken?
Otherwise they looks really cool. Whats the name of book 2?
