Time for round 2, my MotF with power sword, unfortunately the arm and body both come from Chronus so doesn't qualify, but I really like this guy (not so much the finecast servo arms, took a lot of bending to get them mostly straight).

I think a couple of you guys might want to reread the 25% rules for the challenge. Just a piece of helpful advice.

Heres my entry. :) Hope its okay to have bits tacked on. The servo skull is for instance, cause i want to paint it seperately.

 

Cause most marines are shooting guns or waving swords, i thought i'd get this Techmarine preparing to do some repairs. Here he's putting in commands for his servo-arm / checking vehicle schematics. ;)

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

I like what I'm seeing so far biggrin.png so far my favorites are magicman's and Aquilanus'. The former has a charming simplicity to it, and the latter really captures the creepiness that adepts of mars exude in the artwork.

Edit: Pics!

Ahh dudes these are all awesome. Mine is struggling. Seems to be a busy time with work. Won't qualify for the challenge sadly, but cracking on when I can. Off for the weekend though. So might see some progress.

I'm pretty certain mine doesn't adhere to the rules. I did mine for the fun of it smile.png

Agreed with Aquilanus!
Pretty sure at least one of mine doesn't qualify with the rules, but I've always followed the "rule of cool".

Absolutely love what's been posted so far, and I've seen a fair few ideas that I will be 'borrowing'...

 

Here's my attempt, 30K era techmarine. The legs came from a previous (failed) conversion and are mostly painted, and the torso, head and backpack are base-coated. I hope that's not a problem?

pretty sure being blackout drunk is an expectable excuse to explain any unusual situation.

Well lads, this is it, 7 days to go!!!!!

 

@ Squeaky: Very nice GS skills, I'm a little jealous of you guys who can achieve so much with it.

@ ninjasuperspy: Very nice combo of bitz, I might need to look into those Kromlech legs...

@ oldschoolsoviet: Loving the melta-axe!! 

@ Daemonifuge: That Servo-harness has come together really well :tu:

@ Skoby: That loincloth, so well done :tu: and yep, Failcast *sigh*

@ Magicman: You know I hated that helm when I first saw it, but now? The more I see it, the more I want to find a reason to use it. I love the idea of a Techmarine, you know, fixing stuff rather than bashing skulls, seem appropriate

@ Aquilanus: Excellent fluff to accompany a very unique conversion :tu:

@ BassWave: I love that cog pattern on the HUGE sword, I LOVE huge swords....

@ Brother Martemis: Good news!!! I can't see anything that excludes your entry, as plastic kits are exempt from the 25% rule. Futhermore, that is one badass Warpsmith, I'd have never considered converting a Centurion in that way. Kudos dude.

@ Sgt. Sharpe: Nice tidy kit-bash, well done :tu: also, are they Anvil legs? I've been meaning to try them out.

@ Grotsmasha: Well done me, you've stopped procrastinating.

@ Huberticus: BITZ, bitz everywhere!! That servo-arm has turned out quite well. 

 

Alrighty then, Update time, Week 3 done and dusted just 7 days to go......and we've had a great two weeks with 12 new Completions;

<p>Grotsmasha, yes they're Anvil legs. Their resin quality is pretty amazing, no bubble's on 15-20 bits i ordered a while back. Only issue i had was they're a little slow to ship my order out. But all in all great products. Also they sell chain-halberds, and the only people that hate chain-halberds are the ones on the receiving end.<img alt=":lol:" class="bbc_emoticon" src="http://image.boltera...fault/laugh.png" title=":lol:" /></p>

I have a lot of sympathy for the Mantis Warriors. They've had to endure some of the worst events in WH40k. The Badab War, the Tyranid incursions, C.S. Goto. The worst.

Thank you. On reflection I think I need to paint up a castellax like Dog from Half-life 2 & call him Backup.

 

Also second entry:
