hey everyone-- I have been working on the terminator, both to brush up on my painting (which is painfully rusty) and to solidify the color scheme in my head.
As I said previously, I will be creating a White Scars successor chapter called the Storm Brothers. I will be using White scars rules 100%. The only deviation will be slight changes in style (not rules) and modeling/fluff. The Storm Brothers have the following characteristics (I will fill out the fluff as I get to know the 40K universe better):
Xenomorph killers: The Storm Brothers are fanatical at rooting out and destroying alien incursions, particularly Orks and Tyranids
Fanatic: Storm Brothers are a deeply devoted Chapter, and never go to battle without a Chaplain
Lightning: Their Chapter motto is, "We are the Lightning Strike". Like their progenitor White Scars, they hit fast and hard-- however, they also excel at striking at a distance, and will have more sniper rifles, missile launchers and long-range weapons than a typical White Scars detachment will (still deciding on Devastator Squads). Sergeants and HQ will almost always be rewarded with power weapons and/or Lightning Claws. Veterans/Sgts. on bike will have power lances.
Overall, I am happy with how the scheme looks now that it is highlighted. Painting those lightning affects is harder than it looks! Oh well, practice will make better, if not perfect, I hope.
Comments/critiques welcome. Next up, the lone bike in my possession.
