Not saying you can´t do it, you can do everything of course. (I didn´t want to say "That´s a terrible idea!" but more "I don´t know/ not my cup of tea" and all, you know? ;) )

My comment was not deeply based on fluff more an immediate reaction; the whole reason for this was that I like them as "tragic heroes" a bit

and didn´t want them to go evil. Apparently things are a bit differenet as I thought at first. I would give your version a go I think.

Thje badge seemed to suggest that they are now totally Hurons guys, but that´s probably wrong...

Maybe use them as a "joker" a la Legion of the Damned, who pop up from time to time to save the day for menkind and then vanish before someones asks too much question about them?

Thanks bud...I agree, Lamenters aren't bad guys. I was thinking more like "Rene-good" ,as opposed to true renegades. I was just looking for a half decent/fluffy excuse to use other codexes so I can shoe horn my boarding assault army onto the tabletop; since the current ones don't really allow that. Hopefully 8th will improve on that for me. Also, I rally wanted to use the badge to unify a force together, and it's just conveniently Badab War esque. 

 

Also, because it's Tuesday, more space marine porn (though every day is space marine porn day):

The last 20 jump pack equipped assault marines of the Lamenters 8th Reserve Company in progress.

 

I had a couple of sets of the Red Scorpions vanguard vet kits lying around and have liberated some MKIV legs from some Sons of Horus I acquired a while back to add in the usual forgewordly goodness.  Plus a couple of the new assault squad boxes so I think some of these guys will end up with eviscerators.

 

Till the next time

With those two squads I've now assembled my boarding assault company :-) There will be the command squad and dreads to do as well but I think 100 marines in a couple of weeks is pretty good going for me.

 

Looking at that assault sergeant now though, I'm going to have to stick that power sword in hot water to straighten it out a bit.

 

Also, have to say the new assault squad box is really well cast. There are very few mould lines and the detail is excellent. One slight issue is that all of a sudden all combat weapons are left handed and all pistols are right handed. Which made trying to make all the poses different a bit more of a challenge and really cleaned out a lot of my bits box.

 

Still I have to admit that I am glad the build stage is over, the last job of assembling these and scraping off mould lines was becoming a bit of a chore:

Also, as I am about to embark on the painting of all these dudes, it was rather convenient my new portable modelling/painting station turned up in the post:

gallery_60109_5815_857997.jpg

 

Sadly, long gone are the days where I had a dedicated work area where I could leave everything laid out. And at the moment, getting all my painting stuff out is a real pain. So hopefully this will sit quietly in the corner of the lounge, ready to deploy at a moments notice and allow me to be a lot more productive.

 

Till the next time.

Thanks bud.

Cheers wiqid. Me too....and I'm doing it :-). I've never built a force this way round where I build first and then paint. I've always tended to build and paint a unit at a time.

Since I ran out of spray paint the other day I couldn't finish priming my assault marines:

gallery_60109_5815_89218.jpg

 

So I've been putting these guys together.....no self respecting boarding assault can happen without terminators after all:

Now I'm just hoping the undercoat I've ordered turns up after these are built. 

 

Cheers

So the spray paint turned up before I finished the termies, but it's been raining all week so:

......I've got so much to paint now. Luckily I'm close to having as many Lamenters as there are left in the 40k universe so it can't get that much worse for me. 

 

Cheers

Great looking army bud. That is a lot of assault marines :)

Nor have I. But I think I can understand why it is advantageous to take the other approach. At least you can break up the monotony of painting with building something up and converting in the process. If I built my entire army, I would be burnt out and intimidated by the rows and marines and tanks threatening to assault me with deadly painters fatigue. tongue.png

Ok B&C I need some help/inspiration.....

 

I've got three ironclad dreads that will make up a dreadnought talon for my boarding force (using the siege assault rules); one will be a siege dread and the other two will be ironclad dreads.

 

The problem I have is how to base them, as with the larger dreadnought bases, there greater space and scope for more interesting bases. I could just base them on old diamond tread plate but it's boring and a waste of the opportunity.

 

At the moment I have these:

gallery_60109_5815_147349.jpg

gallery_60109_5815_93336.jpg

 

Both bases are OK on their own, but they don't exactly go together and I want to theme the bases since the dreads are a talon and would deploy together.

 

I've come up with the idea that the talon has advanced down a corridor to an inner door, on the far side is a balcony and stairs that lead to a large area - possibly a command deck/muster point/other large area. Once they reach the door, since it's too small one dread will have cut round it. Another dread will have advanced through the hole and down the stairs. The third dread will be bringing up the rear so still in the corridor.

 

So I have three areas/ideas in this scenario:

A - in the corridor, might have a wall on the base that has a dreadnought sized hole on it to tie in with the others

B - on the balcony on the other side of the hole, probably standing on the cut section of bulkhead with the door in it. The wall the door was cut from can alos be on the base behind the model. Lastly a step modelled as the first of the flight of steps to tie to the next base.

C - lastly the lead dreadnought that has advanced down the stairs and is either mid flight or at the base, I think at the base would look better.

 

I am thinking that similarity of material and colouring will pull the bases together as well.

 

I scribbled this to show what I mean:

gallery_60109_5815_1044914.jpg

 

So here's where I need the help. If you have seen any images or have any ideas for theming the dread bases in a space hulk/boarding action stylie I need to see/read it cos I'm all out.

 

Thanks

LM
