Man, I've missed looking through this thread. Loving all the additions you've added Race since I last been on here! All the terminators!

I have 6 of those metal GK terminators - they look great; much better than the normal terminator kit.

Wishing I could afford those Japan special edition termies right now.

Any pictures of the RT era DIY chapter?

Not RT, but certainly 2nd/3rd ed. Will ppst some later ^_^

The RT-era dudes have long been discarded into trash bin because I didn't know any better :cry:

Bro I love the termies, man I miss those shoulder pads now that they are out of print. I used mine sadly. Keep it up man, it doesn't disappoint. On a side note how are they in 8th?

As promised, early 3rd-ed era.  My DIY name was shamefully and unimaginatively ripped from Battletech - the Gray Death Legion.

The grey seen is the grey to be used for my upcoming GK squad.

 

Speaking of which, after today's base spray, I think I'm done with GW spray cans.  I'll give Krylon a try until P3 gets their crap together.

Thanks guys ^_^

 

Not meaning to OT my Raven Guard army, but I eventually converted the scheme to an equally unimaginative copy of the name "Red Shoulders" and GDL was a rather recognized name.  That switch happened in 6th ed.  But now I'm good with the Raven Guard and a lot or models got converted to the black :lol:

 

SO, to my GK: afte reviewing parts from the spray coat ... some pieces have the fuz.  censored.gif

 

I mean ... censored.gif

 

SO, any tips to clean the fuz off or should the lot go to the trash to satisfy my utter contempt and disgust?

Why does the Razorback bear an omega? To show your Marines fought with honor beside the Sons of Orar?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

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.

Thank you for the question Bjorn.  STORY TIME!

 

It is a symbol for surviving units from a self-imposed 100-year crusade known as "The Omega Docimacy".  In my head-canon, the Chapter was involved in the defense against the 12th Black Crusade and failed to protect a Castle Chain from the forces of Chaos (think the Mormon fort in Starship Troopers but along a mountain chain like the Urals).

 

Really, it gave me a chance to use up ALL THOSE ULTRAMARINE DECALS one inevitably collects buying Space Marines stuff.

Steel wool takes the fuzz off just wash them after wards to remove the steel wool left behind.

Glad you asked! I read some interesting options anx short of giving the parts a bath and scrubbing the paint off to start over, I just took a medium tooth brush and scrubbed hard. It woooorrrrkkkkeeeddd. Good enough for Adeptus Administratum work :P

Due to my work involving insurance claim reporting and Hurricane Florence, I've been too busy to get meaningful work on the GK done. BUT, I have the shiney word stuff and a dude's armor done.

At this rate I may be done by the time the Emperor walks the Earth IRL ^_^
