Here's the progress made so far in the first few days:
My first squad of 5 intercessors. This one's just normal Bolt Rifles, which i'm doing up with black gun casings.
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.
and here's the hellblasters so far.
And my Primaris Captain.
The Redemptor Dreadnought.
My Counts-as Pedro Kantor. wanted him a little bigger than normal, plus the LGS didnt have one in stock.
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.
