So far I've got the following bits...
- Mark V Heresy Armor torsos (7-8) - I will not be buying Corvus armor from FW, I'm too cheap, as cool as it is.
- Mark VI Corvus Armor legs, beakie helmets and power packs (these are the older GW packs that look like the new FW ones)
- Umbra Pattern Boltguns and bolt pistol - old GW ones that look like what FW based theirs off of.
- Mark V-VI studded shoulder pads (9 just ordered from ebay) - I will give them all these so they at least match in that regard. I'm also going to cut the trim off regular pads for their right side.
Now, my question to you guys is, mixing in newer mk armor and weapons should not be a problem at all, right?
The way I see it is the older marines and vets would have the more ancient "holy" weapons/armor and some of the younger marines would simply be given newer variants. I plan to outfit the majority of the squad with the weapons listed above along with a DA robed sarge but maybe mix in a couple Mk VII torsos (the ones without the anquila) along with newer boltgun variants.
How about beakie helmets? What's the consensus there, should I give the two marines which have newer variant armor/weapons newer non-beakie helmets as well (I actually have enough to do them all beakie if I wanted to)?
Should I go as far to even give them newer mark legs? I wanted to mix in some running legs too but all I have is standing marine legs now and I haven't decided if I want to drop the dough on them off ebay just yet.
I have my own opinions of course, but I wanted to see how everyone else though as well. Any other suggestions are welcome and if anyone has any examples, I'd love to take a look.
