After a quick little browse of the P&M logs recently, I was inspired to not only sign up to Warseer, but I thought I might pitch in with my own Imperial Fists, seeing as there seem to be several other offerings on the board to keep them company.
Before I show a few pictures, I should explain a few points:
(i) The majority of these models, and certainly the ones you'll see pictures of in the near future, were painted a good number of years ago now. Most of my limited painting time is taken up with Inquisitor modelling, and that's pushed 40K onto the back foot. However, the imminent release of the new Marine codex, and seeing nice stuff on here, has made me want to occasionally do a little bit more 40K.
(ii) When I set off to start this army originally, I was looking for a way to get effective looking yellow marines done relatively quickly, without having to worry about twenty layers of paint! I managed this to my satisfaction, and I still like the look of them en masse. However, were I to be painting the same models purely for display, this is not how they would look!
Anyway, without further ado, here's a couple of tactical squads to start with:
Tactical Squad I (Lascannon, Plasma Gun)
Tactical Squad II (Heavy Bolter, Flamer)
These are both pretty standard 10-man Tactical Squads, with accompanying heavy and special weapons. You'll notice that the Marines are pretty "clean", but these were all assembled before the days when tactical sprues came with a million-and-one goodies built-in!
Here's a shot of the Captain, though I'm not a fan of how he looks in the photo. Of course, these days you could get a plastic Iron Halo for him, but not four years ago!
Any comments are welcome! I'll pop back in a day or so with some more pictures of another few squads, or a tank or two!
