Small update, I’ve never used the clear plastic flying stands. So here’s what I think I’m supposed to do, I glued the model (painted) to the stand, then put glued the stand to the base (unpainted) I’m going to add some rubble to the bases, hoping that glueing more stuff to the clear plastic where it meets the base will help secure everything together. Then I’ll cover everything that I don’t need painted black, and put the primer down.

I think that’s a better option than painting the base and then flying it.

Or I already messed up. Idk

The Inceptors are well-painted.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Anyone have any suggestions for tank names? I’ll be submitting this for the ETL as soon as I finish some final touches.

I'm surprised you chose such a USMC symbol for the Repulsor, not even replacing the bald eagle with the two-headed Imperial Aquila. As for a name, how about "Spiritus Invictus", after the motto on the Marine Special Operator Insignia?

It's probably because the single-headed Eagle is rarely used in Warhammer. Iirc, the only time it's used is in 30k, on Dorn and Nathaniel Garro's armour.

I like the paint scheme you've chosen.  It's very striking with the combo of colors.

I did a little more work to the Eagle, adding some extra depth to him, as well as finishing off the anchor with the rope, and the globe with North and South America. I also came up with some names.

When the new repulsor comes out I plan to buy two of them, depending on the rules, and naming the three in a similar fashion. I think these sound like a good trio, but what do you think?

Wrath of Honor
Defender of Courage
Faith of Commitment

The three core values of the Marines are of course; honor courage and commitment. So these names seem fitting, but I would love some feedback.

The green stuff EGA is well done. As for a name, how about "Wrath of the Faithful" or "Wrath of the Just"? Maybe "Hammer of Faith", "Hammer of Justice", or "Hammer of Vengeance"? "Chariot of Champions" or "Chariot of the Crusaders"?

I like the idea for the name, but what about my use of the EGA surprises you?

It's probably because the single-headed Eagle is rarely used in Warhammer.
Exactly- I'm surprised no effort was made to make the insignia look Imperial, e.g., use the two-headed Aquila in place of the eagle, or an M30 anchor (or whatever the AdMech uses to secure a starship) in place of the M2 design.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

Instead of using the "Blank of Blank", you could go with a two word possessive:
Honor's Wrath
Courageous Defender
Committed Faithful

For the last one, I'd prefer Committed Saber, Commited Blade, or some such.

I never really wanted to “imperialize” the EGA. I’ve just always done it this way. I look at it as more of a symbol from their home world rather than the imperium. They still use old wooden shipping vessels.

I like the idea of dropping the “of” but maybe keeping the Value at the end still.

Wrath’s Honor
Defenders Courage
Faithful Commitment

"Wrathful Honor" or "Honorable Wrath" sounds more natural than "Wrath's Honor".

I’m posting my current standings on my vow so that I can achieve two things. One, obtaining motivation. Two, getting some feedback. My current plan is to paint the frag boxes, the las talons “eye” and of course everything that’s grey, white. Then a couple black gun casings, and the finer details. My question for you all is, those supply containers towards the rear (should have put them on after painting) what color should they be? originally I was going to do them black but now I realize white is more my theme. Any suggestions? I’m also still debating how to do the storm bolter turrets.


Thanks for stopping by!

Saw your post in the ETL thread, really like all of your greenstuff work!

 

For the barrels I think you should leave the black. White will draw the eye to them and I don't think they should be the focus of the model.

Finally finished her, the Swift Honor. I’m happy with the way everything came out, but the storm bolters don’t really fit in there holes anymore. I was going to paint the company’s crest on it, but there wasn’t really anywhere to put it.

My second vow is about 90% done. Just the gold and metal left to do. I’ve decided that the purity seals on the apothecary will be red, seeing as they will be on golden jars. I like the way the tabard came out. For anyone wondering why I didn’t paint his legs white, this is because the Eagles Eternal first company has the honor of having white legs.

Now, question for you all, should I paint the chapter symbol in black on his left knee as I usually do, or should I paint the apothecary symbol in white? Tough choice right? That’s how I felt.

The Primaris Apothecary is well-assembled and painted. As for colors, I think a white Apothecary symbol will stand out better against the dark blue legs, but you should get a second and third opinion.

It’s time to fill out the ranks, another squad joins the fight, there’s already so many members of the command structure involved, it just fits that we start to fill the company out. I need to go through some bits and see about using some additional parts to really make sure these guys arnt all exactly the same. After all, I’ve still got 45 more to build!

Two things I feel should be addressed. First, would it kill them to do some research? There’s no reason to hold your rifle so that you can’t pull the trigger. NOT EVEN TO RELOAD! Modern military can reload while still keeping their finger on the trigger, super humans should be even better.

And yes, I’m working on a sector imperialis. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, lemme know.

The Righteous Indignation looks great from the front, but why camouflage his back, and only his back? To reduce his visibility from the rear, and thus, vulnerability to rear attacks? So similarly camouflaged allies who follow in the Knight's footsteps, won't misidentify him and subsequently make him a victim of "friendly fire"?

The rear half of the carapace is camouflaged not to hide the knight, but because that is the “uniform” of assets belonging to my space marine chapter.

Also I had so much space available and I just thought, “what would look cool to try?” I’m going to also do my Phobos camo cloak that way.

I’ve been doing a lot of work on the realm of battle. I want to name the planet something to the effect of “Quantico” and then when I play on it it can be any of the city’s on the planet for narrative purpose. I felt like I had made a lot of progress but even still, there’s so much to do. The only things done are the sidewalks (massive tripping hazards) and the building outlines (just not the grated sections). If anyone has any suggestions on what I can do with the grates I’m still not really set on anything. Time for a picture.
