So when the new Space Marines book came out I was looking for a change from my Black Templars. I will always have a soft spot for the black, but I wanted a new challenge. When I saw the new ForgeWorld chapter tactics, I was drawn in by the opportunity to have FnP on all my Tactical squads, and who doesn't like a scorpion as a symbol? Anywho, my plan is to collect the 2nd battle company of the Red Scorpions, with elements of the 1st company as well (I have Culln already). Unfortunately I don't have any picture updates yet. New job is KILLING my hobby time. I have just finished modeling up 5 sternguard and I sprayed my 1st tactical squad grey. After I sprayed them, I realized the the grey isn't dark enough for me...I was planning on spraying a medium/light grey and then using nuln oil to darken them to the darkness I wanted. It didn't work as well as I'd planned...I'll get a pic up for y'all (yes I'm from Texas, no hatin) as soon as I can of what it turned out to be.
Now: for you Red Scorpion fans out there are you advocates of black armor or dark grey with the black field on their shoulder pads? I'm more for the latter myself, but it would be cool to get some opinions from the vets out there. Currently built I have:
Tactical squad 1
Thanks for reading a stay tuned, I will have some updates soon I promise!
