Well... here's my first post. Figured I'd finally do this, since I've been a long-time lurker here on the forums. Been playing for the past two years, and can finally say that I've made several minis that I'm proud of.
My Marines are... well, I claim them to be Red Scorpions, though I don't follow the set paint-scheme. Same goes for chaplains, and librarians.
Seriously, if you want your head guys to live longer, why make them stand out by giving them different colors of armor?
Here's a group shot of my sternguard. Still missing a few members, but these guys are for the most part complete. Big thanks to Doghouse for his tutorial on truscaled Marines. All that can have magnetized backpacks, have magnets so I can switch them out for vanguard vets if need be.
Here's the sergeant.
The normal bolter guys. Not much special about them.
Not really one for coming up with names, here's Battle Brother Fred. The second named guy in the squad.
The combi-plasmas of the group.
One of my favorite conversions, this guy is fully magnetized, so I can use him as a captain if need be.
Still gotta make a left arm for this guy, but I put him here because he's got some trophies. At my local game store, I regularly play against a Space Wolves player, and occasionally one of the staff members brings out his Ultramarines. First time painting fur, and first (intentionally made) attempt at drybrushing.
Both special-weapons guys. One has a heavy flamer, the other has a lascannon.
Because who needs two hands to shoot heavy weapons?
My favorite of the bunch, and first made, Brother Infernus.
And just 'cause I said I didn't follow the paint-schemes... Scale-shots!
Captain, and chaplain in terminator armor. Not sure where to put a decal on the chaplain, so he's going to remain like this for now.
Severin Loth. Rarely fielded, but very useful when he is.
And just because Guard are allowed here now... My customized veteran squad, posing with the Sarge.
Well, that sums up this little post. Hopefully will be updating this somewhat regularly from now on.
Any critiques are most welcome.
