Here's the progress made so far in the first few days:

 

 

49519696_10156673595981224_7643936812053

49431863_10156673596011224_6138259451469

 

My first squad of 5 intercessors.  This one's just normal Bolt Rifles, which i'm doing up with black gun casings.

 

 

 

 

49664315_10156673596121224_278527073508449407152_10156673596146224_2938046754777

 

And here's the 2nd squad.  These ones have Stalker Bolt Rifles, which i painted with red gun casings.  I wanted the different rifles to look more different than what the default kits look like.  So to start with, i extended the barrel length.  Then i decided i needed a way to make it easy to pick them out from across the table as well, and painting the casings red, gave them red face plates, and the bolter shell decal to mark them out as marksmen.

The arrows will be painted over in red like the other squad once fully set.

 

At this point, i'm considering painting the gun casings based on the weapon type; rapid fire black, heavy red, assault blue.  Just to help associate them better since the designs dont differ quite enough to stand out for myself and my opponent across the table. 

 

 

 

 

49572424_10156673596206224_5054746151668

 

and here's the hellblasters so far. 

 

 

 

 

49568778_10156673596296224_150849754778049723830_10156673596236224_7505668899828

 

And my Primaris Captain.

 

 

 

 

49947959_10156673596256224_8002806352114

 

The Aggressors.

 

 

 

 

49899306_10156673596326224_4055202636486

 

The Redemptor Dreadnought.

 

 

 

 

49671156_10156673596366224_8517972359120

 

My Counts-as Pedro Kantor.  wanted him a little bigger than normal, plus the LGS didnt have one in stock.

 

 

 

 

48398601_10156673596391224_6208517381195

 

lastly, the company veterans.  I haven't made up my mind if i want to make the armless one have a storm shield and power maul, or a combi-plasma and chainsword.

That's quite the list to get done for March, looks like you're off to a good start though! I like the red faceplates of the Stalker squad.

Loving the shade of blue you've got on your models dude, is that Kantor Blue or a different paint? Seems nice and dark, almost purple.

 

Also, I think this has inspired me to pledge a vow to Dorn too!

it is Kantor blue, with a wash of drakenhof nightshade over top of that.  the reds are khorne red with carroburg crimson over them.

I'm a huge fan of the Crimson Fists and these are looking nice. I like the marking on the studded shoulder pad, that and the other markings like the campaign ones are really nice little touches. :tu:

thanks, i've been enjoying how they look so far with the decals, especially taking the time to paint the squad markings red. 

 

i should point out at this point that i wont be doing any edge highlighting on these guys either, except maybe on big models like the dread and whirlwind.  This is because i'm very near-sighted, so the effect is completely lost on me on the table, so its pointless spending the extra time and effort for something i just can't see. 

 

I'll have some more photos this weekend of the progress i've made; so far i've been doing the squad markings on the stalker intercessors and the heavy hellblasters

Excellent work assembling, posing, and painting the Marines. How will you decorate their bases?

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.

Weekly update time. got my last 10 intercessors and upgrade sprues in the mail this week, and assembled a squad with Auto Bolt Rifles.

 

50295313_10156698949836224_6741521259261

 

did a few changes on this one, to make them stand out more.  The obvious stuff first, the heads.  No helmets, and chose the faces that looked more aggressive for these guys. 

 

The guns themselves have also been altered some to stand out more as well;  the picatinny rails were removed, the iron sights were shortened, the fiddly bits above and below the barrels were removed, and the eyeholes for a sling were taken off.  Then i added flashlights under the guns on the ones i could.  i got one more to make for the knife guy.

 

Knife guy also had some chop n' swap done to his knife arm to stretch the arm back to better match his stance, and the grenade launcher had his arm altered so he'd one-hand the gun.  that also required chopping out the left hand and replacing that grip with one from a rifle that was already meant to be one-handed.

 

below are some shots of the individual guys.

another progress update.  work's been coming along on the last 10 intercessors.  started the blue armour on the Auto Bolt Rifle unit, and assembled and primed the 5 that will count as veteran intercessors when i field an indomitus crusade list:

 

49236530_10156705514101224_2266323834007

 

 

50943396_10156705517066224_4957681144909

 

the veteran unit will have both hands, and their helmets painted red, and have been given tilt shields as additional decoration.  im thinking i might do the shields blue with a red stripe or something.

 

and here's the infantry as a whole:
