Double post! I've been doing a lot of building today, and decided to finish my second devastator squad. 

 

I painted these two Missile Launcher toting dudes a couple weeks back, and they need squad mates.

So they need some buddies! 

 

Here's the sergeant. Again, no banner, because of the Signum. I got the idea to put some MkII and MkIII elements on one of the devastator legs from someone on this forum (cannot remember where). I love the plumes on the helmets too - probably going to be using a lot of those on the sergeants of future squads too.

Then, the banner bearer of the squad. I only took one picture of him, so that's it. :) The fluff behind the banner is that it used to be carried by one of the sword brethren in ages past ie the Great Crusade.

WP_20151115_008_zpsvoxwaukt.jpg

 

And lastly, a type of marine that is blatantly stolen from the HH: a comms specialist. I'm trying to get all my squads to feature one of these from now on.

1_zpsynr0pj5u.jpg

 

I'll try and get these guys done before tomorrow evening - as I want to do at least one more squad before Wednesday and I promised myself never to paint more than three marines at a time.

 

Oh, and I got the FW Imperial Fists transfer sheet. Damn. that´s some serious bling.

Cheers, MrBear! The second Devastator squad (WIP posted ^^) is now finished. Pics:

 

Complete squad:

temporary_zps6pgsmoqe.jpg

 

temporary_zps5kkzbdgb.jpg

 

Veteran Sergeant Sander Lev. A veteran of over a hundred of battles, Sergeant Lev has been honoured with a relic MkII helmet and officer´s plume. His staunt resolve has saved his brothers on countless occasions. 

temporary_zpsstwebilz.jpg 

 

Brother Kurt, Vexilarius of Squad Lev. Kurt wears a modified suit MkIV armour with a MkV  helmet, which signifies him as a veteran. The honour marking on the right knee pad of the armour marks it as very old. The squad´s Vexila too is a truly ancient relic in the chapter, and features marks of honuor from thousands of years ago.

I hope you like it. Thanks for watching and feedback, as always, more than welcome. It keeps me going!

 

Cheers

How did you do the beautifully icky mud?

By mixing Vallejo Dark Earth paste with GW sand. I have a pot that will ast forever. After drilling two holes in a base where the two pins of the feet go, I cut some grooves in the base with a hobby knife (so the paste has something to hold on to), then apply the sand with a spatula. I then ´sculpt´ it with a fairly big, damp, old brush; wet the model´s feet; stick the two pins of the model through the holes, so that the soles of the feet make a slight impression in the paste; remove the model and let the whole thing dry. When it´s dry, I basecoat it with a 1:1 mix of GW Rhinox Hide and Vallejo black primer, drybrush it with GW Rhinox Hide and then with GW Mournfang Brown. :tu:

The Devastators are looking pretty classy!

That ancient Mk2 helm looks way better with Mk7 warplate than I ever would have expected.

Also, that melta bomb baby is creepy as ever. Great work!

I really like the position you chose for that Missile Launcher marine. I always see them with the ML up and in a firing position so your choice of position was quite refreshing!

Cheers everyone, for the feedback. Next up is a squad of tactical marines with a Missile Launcher. The one from the HH:BaC box. 

 

Here's pics of all the marines in different shots.

 

First up is a standard bolter marine. I just love the combination of the acquila breastplate with the MkIV head. If I'd be playing HH Emperor's Children, all my marines would have this combo.

5_zpspk8srlcx.jpg

 

Second, another bolter marine, who is wearing all kinds of armour. I really like to mix and match, taking full advantage of the compatibility of all the armour marks. 

1_zpsv4f3b2ve.jpg

 

Third, here's the Sergeant. I went full mental on this guy. He has the MkII breacher helmet with plume (gotta love the breacher helmets for their almost Predator-like appearance), laurels all over the place, some pteruges for his loins, and an awesome, awesome back banner. I love this guy.

2_zpsao9uwqk6.jpg

 

Fourth, the missile launcher guy. I gave him the 40K devastator legs (all the heavy weapon toting dudes in my 1250 points list will have these legs) and the MkIV helmet with the extra scope/visor like thing on his helmet. 

4_zps0xhfjkcl.jpg

 

And finally, the second comms specialist. This idea really grew on me and I'm planning on putting one in every squad from now on. If anyone has more Imperial Guard vox casters or Defense Line Vox stations and wants to trade them, please PM me. I need two of these: 

Hidden Content

The conversion is super simple: just put two of the space marine backpack engine exhausts on the sides of the thing and stick it on the marine's back. :tu:

3_zpstaoh7wgm.jpg

 

That's it! I also in a stroke of perfect timing got the FW Imperial Fists contemptor in the mail, so I'll be working on getting the two HH:BaC Kherese Assault Cannons on that thing, and painting it up. Or should I do the Deredeo first?

 

Thanks for looking and feedback most welcome!

@Flint13: Haha thanks! Creepy flying babies FTW, right?

 

@Teetengee: Creepy flying babies can be found in this post, on page 60. Trust me, the link is SFW. devil.gif

 

@grizzly_bear: You do have a pretty big headstart. Also, since when is this a contest ;)

 

@Barabbas Sogalon: Haha thanks buddy. I think I'll break my own rule and try to paint five marines in one go, as I've developed a pretty fast method of painting Imperial Fists by now. Turns out, if you satin varnish before each GW Shade, your work time is cut in more than half, and it goes on smoother and easier!

 

@Black_out: Averland sunset and a white basecoat are your friend, buddy.

 

@Knight of the Raven: Thanks bro! Yes, four razorbacks do look awesome, no? Imagine what eight would look like! eek.gif 
 

@Plains of War: Cheers! Glad you spotted it. And yeah I did it pretty much exactly for the reason you said. I also have a Night Lord devastator with Missile Launcher standing like that (only he's not pointing, but holding a missile), for the exact same reason.

Your mix n' match marines are looking pretty darn cool! I'm always a fan of that look. It really lends weight to the idea that chapters in the 41st have been treating every piece of war plate as individual mini-relics, down to the last little servo.

This. It's exactly my motivation and reasoning behind the mix and match look. I really see SPace MarineChapters as these loges of ultra-conservative warrior monks that revere every single item in their posession, especially since power armour is so difficult to manufacture and thus gets passed down from brother to brother. It's a little like those ancient, stitched together cocktail jackets worn by Univeristy Rowing teams. 

 

Anyway, I finished the tactical squad. Here they are in all their glory! (apologies for the overexposed pictures. Deal with it)

 

WP_20151118_035_zps4otdthcg.jpg

 

WP_20151118_032_zps7fczw5hu.jpg

 

And of course, some shots of the individual squad members.

 

Veteran Sergeant Donau. Donauinherited his helmet and most of his armour armour from his former mentor and friend, Vexilarius Calon. Notice the transfers on his kneedpads. They´re the teeniest, tiniest transfers I´ve ever used. But they´re beautiful.

1_zpslly5rlfh.jpg

 

Vox specialist Haanden Dalut

3_zpsyy1swhlf.jpg

 

Heavy weapon specialist Danzik Hast

2_zpsnmrb4mxp.jpg

 

Brother Kon Dantula

4_zps1xazjrdm.jpg

 

Brother Caleb Hos. Notice that because of the reinforced armour studs on his left shoulder pad, Hos wears his chapter badge on the right shoulder, where the squad designation and number have been moved to the side to make room.

5_zpsvlneum6n.jpg

 

I hope you like them!

 

I also repainted the shoulder pads of my scouts into a bit warmer yellow, and put transfers on them from the IF transfer sheet. I cannot stress how awesome these transfers are.

WP_20151118_051_zpstblneedt.jpg

 

Again, thanks for looking. Feedback most welcome!

 

I think I'm in need for some vehicular distraction after painting two squads of marines. Or maybe a character...
