    Space Sharks WIP

    I have been itching to do up a Space Sharks army for a while now. I always envisioned them like WW flying aces - lots of kill markings, tooth designs on the sides of vehicles, etc.
    Cpt. Tiberius' IA is also pretty sweet, and who better to carry the deathwatch heavy bolter than a Space Shark?

    These guys won't get any paint until I am done painting my novamarines - however I wanted a very tight look to the models and began ordering bits when i saw them available eg. torsos are only the one's with tubing - SM or CSM, all with MK6 beakies, all with the older mk7 backpack, etc. And then while waiting for the hobby room in our condo to undercoat the novamarines I figured I might as well put these guys together. Pretty much all plastics so far.

    Points for the bestest chapter ever conceived. I watch with interest.

    Is it just me, or is there something up with the pose of the fellow on the left?

    They're one of the classics though. Straight up back in the day, beardy guys gaming in their mother's basement, rogue trader, kind of classic. One of the chapters everybody knows the name of, but nobody ever sees as an army.

    Dare I say it? the Space Sharks are Jawsome.

    Hi Natsirtm, it's good to see a fellow Space Shark.
    Your command squad looks very promissing. Now, where's the beef? Ähm, the colour?
    Wish you as much fun as i have in painting and fielding them.

    I must be honest, the first guy in your close ups, he is cool, but I think you need to adjust the pose to have a more natural running effect.

    Other than that, cool!
