Hope everyone had a good Non Imperial Truth Day and an awesome new year. Thanks for the comments guys it really helps encourage me to keep going with this madness.
Speaking of madness I have some pics showing some progress. I'm still hard at work on these Heresy marines and felt they needed something to bring them together. I came across these squad movement trays from Angry Mojo games and felt that these would help bring them together. Unfortunately the ones I ordered don't sit flush with the lipped bases from my marines so there is a noticeable gap, but I'm willing to look past that. At the moment I've only just stuck them together but the plan is to flock them and try and make them more scenic to match the marines bases (so more rubble, barbed wire and sandbags ahoy). I might pickup a few more of these for my Novas and Deathwatch at a later date.
Here's my completed VII legionary mini with his IV and VI Legion counterparts.
Above is the I and XX Legion minis, these guys are both close to finish. All that needs to be done is a blast of dull coat. Unlike the other minis the Alpha doesn't have an alternate head. I reasoned, that out of all of them he'd be the only one not to remove his helmet, making him difficult to predict. I based the scheme for this guy on this artwork by Aerion the Faithful as I liked his idea of making the members of the XX legion identical to one another.
If I didn't have so much else to do I'd totally do a force of minis using the exact same armour parts as each other to get this idea across.
Due to the less than sunny weather of fair blighty I haven't had much opportunity to go out and dull coat these guys, but I hope to get them all finished and then blast them all at the same time.
As I said before your critiques are more than welcome guys and thank you for the support.
@GrandMagnus - Thanks mate, I plan to improve on the freehand a bit more for these Novas.
@augustmanifesto - I plan to make more of these guys. Got a tactical squad worth and a Landspeeder sitting there waiting for me to finish them after I finish my Heresy and Deathwatch marines first.
@Asamodai - Thanks brother, really liked your Raven Guard and Deathwatch marines, you still going at them?
@Noctus Cornix - I'm honoured to have your apporval.
@Dosjetka - Hope my Novas can look good enough to march alongside your Genesis marines some day.
@sockwithaticket - Thanks mate. Your marine thread is awesome.
@ckpmax1108 - Will be glad to have your support, hope I can do the same.
