Obsidian Legion Devestators
Posted 17 January 2012 - 08:31 PM
As far as work done is concerned, in these images I've based the bodies black (as well as their accessories, not pictured) and built the shoulders up from Mechrite Red to a much deeper color.
Overall, the vow is to complete 3 squads of Devastators with missile launchers, 5 strong each. I'm using 10 new AoBR missile launcher marines, one Devastator boxed set, and 2 random tactical marines I'm converting to Devastator Sergeants with some miscellaneous bits. 1 additional ML Marine is constructed from the Devastator set, and I'm going to repaint 2 previously built ML Marines to the new color scheme. That gives me more than the requisite 12 ML Marines. I have yet to build the 2 additional Sergeants, but I have some ideas for backpack conversions involving vehicle bits.
Without further ado: 2012 LPC WIP Update photo set 1.
Since these were taken, after about 2 hours worth of work I have added Boltgun metal to the joints of the power armor, the Aquilas, chainsword, ML's, and loading arms. I've also started to repaint the white on the extra Marines as red, added Snakebite leather to the pouches and dagger sheathes, and covered the skull motifs in Adeptus Grey. all in all, not a bad day.

The posture of the sergeant looks a little bit wonky to me. Changing the angle abit so maybe he is looking at the thing he is pointing to, or backwards to give the impression of him giving orders

More WIP Pics.
And one of the marines from my tac squads I'm repainting to match. Biggest change, shoulder pad went from White (like, bright white) to red. Hence, the profile view.

First, a group shot of all 15.
Then the stock Sergeant.
Now the first kitbashed Sergeant.
Now the second kitbashed Sergeant.
The one guy with the white base is me trying a new flocking technique for snow. It was already complete on that model prior to the challenge. I'm moderately pleased with the results, but I think I'm going to black base edges and see how that looks.
