I would certainly class myself as a better sculptor/modeller than a painter, but then, I'm by no means terrible at painting! Let's hope you guys can give me all the pointers I might need to improve my techniques! ;D
"Why Smurfs?!?!" I hear you cry! Well, I think the Ultras get alot of flak for being boring and lame, but let us not forget that they are still space marines! I imagine any one of you that's read any of the Ultramarine books by Graham McNeill would probably have a diminished sense of annoyance and the 'boys in blue', if not admiration, as I certainly do! Also, you very rarely see nice original smurf armies, and I thought I'd give a go at it ;D
Why Pre-Heresy/Heresy? I LOVE the background GW has come out with over the years. It's hopeful, rich, characterful, and though there was constant war, before Horus' betrayal, there was a sense of unity and brotherhood. It wasn't dreary like 40k. Not to mention, having bought the 'Collected Visions' tome, how could I not do a Pre-Heresy/Heresy army?!?! There will be, without doubt, some themes you guys do not agree with. If that is the case, I ask you let me know where I might have strayed from tradition.
So, without further ado, may I present my miniatures!
Company Master Caelinus:
Now, please bear in mind these are all WiP. I've also got a Termie squad, another tactical squad (of 10, like this one), an assault squad, and 6 finished sternguard (2 more needed), so stay posted! Please leave your thoughts and opinions! Jongleur
