Here are my 'before' shots from today, as I got the staff from my local GW to prime and spray them in Caliban Green (except the Reivers and characters, who have been kept in black for the moment)

Ancient, Chaplain and first Lieutenant:
I'm actually really impressed with how this guy turned out. I knew I wanted to include the robotic arm from the Hellblaster set, but the secondary pistol arm was initially going to be a quick swap out of the standard plasma pistol on the arm from this character for a bolt pistol, but it looked a bit same-y to the other lieutenant. The only other Primaris bolt pistol arm I had to hand was the one from the Intercessor squad, and despite it also being held out straight it actually looks quite good (in my eyes at least). Plus the sword hung at the back just felt really cool to do - makes him feel a bit like a Primaris Cypher...
It took a little longer to get all my models sprayed than I was originally planning, so I only really did a little work before I had to pack everything up. I decided on going with the Aggressors to begin with as it's a small squad size, and I just felt like starting with them. I'm going to give the entire range of models a bronze trim to the shoulder pads to give the models a bit more colour and also to keep them united.
