The Dunham Project
Origins: A friend of mine (Paul) owns a game store. He likes 40k but has less than stellar building and painting skills, and not a whole lot of time. He has a particular liking for all things Noise Marine. Last year Paul saw the wonderful Tom Shadle Warp amp rhino and wanted to use an Exorcist to convert one of his own. Well after much paused production on my part the relationship is going strong.

Scope: It started so small, then it just blew up somewhere along the way.

The Predator was to be the center piece of the army so it needed to look cool. I had a thread for awhile last year to get ideas. It contains parts from the Baal Pred, the old Razorback, the new LR, of course the Exorcist, and a Death Cultist Assassin from the =I= range. Plenty of parts, but I think it was worth it. Well it finally got finished, yeah.

Thanks, I had hoped the Predator was cool enough to overcome it's Imperial origins and please the servants of the Dark Gods. Hopefully I will get some more choice bits to do a similar job on the Defiler.

Ok after much personal stuff, we are back in action. A couple colour tests.

Basic noise marine trooper.

And Daemonette. I hate the overly white skin look, so I went with a more natural tone.

Please any comments and critiques are welcome. I will post a few more in a day or two. I have this squad almost done and the champion as well.

I love the magenta on you test-marine. Having doubts about the dark green tough:/
