Dead Space Marines
Posted 15 September 2007 - 08:02 PM
Tactical Squad 1
Tactical Squad 2
This "little" project took a long time to produce. All models have parts shaved off to ensure they lie flat on their bases and lots of milliput was used. Some backpacks and shoulder pads have been left off for ease of painting.
My usual base would be a simple green flock, but as I did these when Cities of Death came out, I'm considering a more urban, rubble strewn basing policy.
Please can I have your thoughts.

But I like the idea and it is well executed.

The assault marine with his head buried in the ground and his legs in the air is just brilliant

P.S. The Assault Marine embedded head-first in the ground is clever.

They all look great!

Yeah, if you do indeed go the Cityfight route, you should stick him head first in a wall.
that would quite probably be the best idea i have ever heard.
I had a similar idea recently and am currently part way through making a marine dying from a melta wound. Although since I suck at repositioning, hes also missing most of his limbs

Maybee I'm being overly critical.

The assault marine with his head in the ground is my fave.

I play Necrons. Why then, am I here?
Think of it as a community service for all the misguided power armor wearing players out there who are still confused by We'll Be Back.

You sir, you have too much money
but this is an awesum idea and youve executed it well
1. its not something you want your girlfriend to know about
2. The damge to your brain from the fumes is roughly the same as doing china white
3. You would also get the same sense of exhiliration form moving peices of plastic round a table
4. Youre always chomping at the bit to get started on your next "project"
5. You would also spend most of your day thinking up a story that involved a Superman, An ork and an Alien
They need a Land Raider that only has a giant rocket engine on the back and can launch itself around the map with a 72" charge range and does like 4D6 S10 Impact Hits.
i believe that's called a lawn mower

You could group them in clusters and make scenery out of them... add some wrecked vehicles and such to clutter up a battlefield... but in my experience, it's just as often the other side needs casualties too, how about some dead tyranids or eldar
Cheers and happy hunting...

I left most without bases to allow me to position them on ANY battlefield without their bases not fitting into the terrain. What are your thoughts on this? Should I bite the bullet and base them or not?

Nice models, just seems a little strange that they all have a firm grip on their weapons, since you'd guess that you might not hold on to that heavy bolter when you're dead...
Nah, if they would loosen the grip around their bolters they wouldn't be space marines!
But I have to say this is hilarious (the assaultsquad guy actually made me laugh out loud) and very well executed.
Some people here said some of the poses look a little unatural. You can easily fix this after you have placed them where ever you want (bases or terrain) by placing them next to "stuff" that affects their positions (leaning on a barrel or a bent leg over a steel girder...). But i have to say that using them as "gravestones" like in worms would be very funny.
I love what you have done to them. Looks great!

I'd love to see the look on your opponents face when you start replacing all the dead models with casualties. I Imagine it would look something like this:
