I do wonder if you'll be using any other of the Dark Angels bits, particularly those with the swords for this chapter. I can kinda see the sergeants in white robes for some reason, and I like it.
There's a few nice bits on the frame that'll get used, but I really dont want to paint white robes. It looks good (cheers for the mock up), but Its not a route I want to take with these guys. That being said, a vet squad might look good in robes but there a long way off yet.
Cheers Darth. There's no fluff for these guys yet, I think I might come up with something small and go from there.
The fluff maniac in me cries out for background! These guys look gorgeous, and it'd be cool to see some background for them. The name's certainly very evocative.
The one thing im not sure about is company/squad designation. As it stands you can tell its a tactical marine but notwhich squad or company he belongs to. If anyone has any ideas feel free to shout them out.
One option for company is to use something like this:
As for squad number, you could simply do a small Roman numeral on his right shoulder pad.
Spot on. Third company it is then. The roman numeral in the tactical badge is a good idea.
Still no fluff ideas im afraid. The only thing I did have in mind was some sort of sword involved pre-battle rite. I've never been good with coming up with background.
If you've got any ideas Commissar let me know.
As for painting pogress, im about half way through another 4 marines. I'll add some photos to a wip
thread later today.
