I have made a modest vow to paint up at least 15 Imperial Fists Tactical Marines, which will bring my new army up to 500 points. I currently have already started the army, but have only managed to paint 5 tactical marines and a Chaplain so far. Painting these next 15 marines will give me an HQ and two tactical squad Troops choices.
Here are some pics of the already completed tac Marines and Chaplain so you know what standards to expect (don't let me take shortcuts or drop standards to get this done quicker!):
I will post pictures of the process periodically as I make progress, from priming up to the final highlighting and decals. This weekend I will build and prime the first five for the oath (1 Sergeant, 2 w/ Bolters, 1 w/ Flamer, and 1 Missile Launcher) and these will be included in my next update post. They will complete the tactical squad in the above picture. I will start painting next week hopefully. For Dorn and the Emperor, I will fulfill my vow! Even if there is no time, time will be made for the honor of my Chapter!
Current Vow Status:
0/15 Marines complete
15/15 In progress
