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.

So I've rebased about 70 minis...

 

Probably cheap and nastily, but still.

 

- All marines are now on 32mm bases

- All captains, lieutenants, etc are on 40mm bases

- All terminators are on 40mm bases

(Or larger)

 

I've done somewhat of a doomsday recording of my minis, to see where I'm at. An inventory I guess.

 

Squaddies:

 

33 Modern marines (meaning not snap fit)

7 Sword brothers (modern marines)

10 Dark Angels veterans

15 Early snap fits

16 Primaris snap fits

3 Primaris flying guys

7 Terminators

5 Deathwing Knights

4 Horse riders

4 Bikers

5 Neophytes / Imperial Guardsmen (plus a hundred or so boxed up somewhere)

 

Specials:

 

Marshall

Emperor's Champion

Venerable Dreadnought

Ulrik the Chaplain

Iron Priest

2 Techmarines

Techpriest Enginseer

 

Vehicles:

 

Rhaakshi titan conversion

4 Imperial Guard tanks (probably won't use)

Land raider (missing in action)

 

 

And then some further analysis:

 

41 out of 128 need basing

 

30 have no paint whatsoever (primed)

7 have minimal paint

10 have three colours (shoulder pads, some red)

24 are half way there

55 are painted to what I'd call a decent standard (but others probably wouldn't) and I'm going to consider finished for now

 

So here are those that I'm considering "finished for now" until I get the rest done.

And here are those still to do, ranging from no paint at all to nearly finished. Unfortunately my Deathwing Knights are there as I forgot to base them!

So I've successfully not touched a paintbrush since I last posted. Don't know how that happened. I suck at sticking at things.

 

Going back to my Neophytes. Might remember they looked like this, as a prototype:

I've ordered some bits, so these will be what I use to make my Neophytes. I HATE scout models. Absolutely hate them.

 

I have a ton of spare parts for IG and SM so I think the only limitation will be the number of capes and heads, as I won't be using any IG heads. I think I got 18 cloaks and 14 heads.

I'm with you there, I can't stand the scout models. Anvil do a Medieval torso in their Regiments line that looked quite good. I'll be watching what you do with them for "inspiration"

Not much to see but some bits done.

 

Actually this is a really bad photo.

Also bought some swords for my Deathwing Knights to swap their arms for.

So here's some Neophytes. Casually avoiding the thread in the other boards about people using guardsmen as scouts... heh.

Camouflage capes are too large and heavy, want patrician ones instead (Anvil).

 

Camouflage:

Hoods:

I keep thinking, 'Pre-Heresy Dark Angels,' when I see the hoods.

My inks have gone funny (but they are ten years old!). Not sure what you'll make of this guy, especially as the only thing Black Templars hate more than heretics are librarians. But here is a Primaris Librarian with a Reiver's head, acting as a Chaplain.

Will repaint it when I get some new paints. It's on me Xmas list.

I went out and bought the Citadel shade set, and have been practicing. Not sure I'm there yet.

I bought a Primaris lieutenant (...dark angels again...) and am in the process of removing iconography.

New replacement sword after my dog ate this terminator's power sword.

Head swap on one of my terminators. This is one of the guys from the Revell set I mentioned earlier, but kitbashed.

And here's my neophytes.

Not quite there re:washes.

 

The rest of them (only partly painted).

And then these are some Primaris guys I got from Warhammer Conquest issues.

Gradually moving towards Primaris.
