Thanks a lot gents, appreciate the comments and praise

So a small update

so I had big plans last night to airbrush 5 tanks (land raider, 2 rhinos and 2 Razorbacks) but my main airbrush j took apart to clean is basically dead inside and a cheap one I was given doesn't fit my air line. So I went making instead.

My 3rd 5 man tac squad

"For the ghosts of sotha"


DBBE02CA-C073-49F5-B80F-8AA0FBA96A70_zps

Will be making the next two later on and hopefully getting some primer on them before I get to bed tonight.

Actually it's never been stated which side the DW pad goes on once the Astartes returns to his Chapter.

Thanks guys for your responses, concerning the death watch pad I've always read and seen them still on the left side when they return home to their chapter.

In other news....the mechanicum have heard the scythes all for armour......

Love the DW marine so full of character! Was wondering though how you weather your black armour really love the effect and would really like to use it on some of my Black Legion marines.

I just love the way you progress with this. Each marine is amazingly posed and painted. It's plots like this that inspire m so much to actually sit down and try and focus on an army rather then random conversions. I think that's an excellent base for a librarian, will look forward to seeing him progress.

I love your weathered/ worn look, it's superb. Your conversion work is also over the top, very inspirational

"They shall be MY finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to ME. Like clay I shall mold them and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armor shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns shall they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines such that no foe can best them in battle. They are MY bulwark against the Terror . They are THE Defenders of Humanity. They are MY Space Marines and they shall KNOW NO FEAR!

@Asamodai: thank you bro, hopefully I'll get this model this week and I'll start work on him and then I can get painting the rhino/back I've shown and another one and then move onto the next 5 man tac squad, tech marine, this 2nd Libby and the 3rd tac squads rhino by the end of March or April.

@lord commander vulkus dorn: thank you fella. I'm glad my work can or inspiring other hobby folk.


I get my first game tonight with my scythes against either eldar or chaos.

So my 750point list tonight

Libby (master 2)

Sternguard (5man with heavy bolter and twin linked HB R.back)

5 man tac squad (vet, plasma gun)
5 man tac squad (vet, power fist and melta gun)

5 man assault squad (melta bomb, flamer and lightening claws)

7man Dev squad (3MLs and a no cherub)

I wondered how that big ol' iron halo would look on a power armoured marine.  Now I have to track one down, so thanks for that. I guess.

 

The character for your friend's army is coming along nicely. Though I can't help but wonder what one of the Suzerain or Ultramarine honor guard heads would look like on that model instead.
