Hello guys.
I have been painting my fists and I kinda wanted to have a place in which to showcase my army as i paint them, play some games and maybe write random stuff about their fluff.

I still have to work on the bases (because i don't really like the ones i've painted) but i will leave that for the last so i can base the whole army consistently when all the paint is done.

70239940_10156645824204150_6621051150344

 

This is my first Devastator Squad. I still have to finish the squad number and a cable on one missile launcher.
Any ideas on a name for the Sergeant?

70255781_10156645824899150_6940472523892

 

The first scout squad. I painted the primaris Vanguard symbol because i thought it looked nice for a scout squad. I was thinking of painting the squad number in the white part but first i'll have to see how many squads will the army have.

70724299_10156645825634150_7682769660076

 

A Lieutenant and two assault marines. I still have to give a name to this HQ and the squad numbers on the assault marines.
Any ideas on how to name them?

70338287_10156645846494150_6068417476440

 

The rest of the Assault squad. I'm missing a jump pack, so i'm looking forward to get one as soon as I can.

The first tactical squad. I still have to paint the 10th member which is a plasma gunner.

Another Lieutenant called Tarsus.

Captain Dodger, a mini I built in honour of a friend (that was his nickname) who passed away some years ago. He used to play with Black Templars and always used a Marshall with this gear, so i thought it would be nice to do this. The Heraldry combines the Templar cross with the checkers he wanted to paint on this army.

Another Lieutenant but this time a melee one. any suggestion for a name?

69886610_10156645874349150_8894602692756

 

Chapter Master Bertram. Once I had a black templar character in the deathwatch rpg that was as violent and headstrong as i could roleplay, so i thought it might be nice to have him as my army's leader.

 

 

I might paint something else in these weeks.

Thank you for looking smile.png

Outstanding work! Especially love the battle damage and the hand painted chapter badge! Gives me hope that I might be able to do something similar. I won't be able to use the transfers because my chapter badge has the colors inverted.

Thank you brother. In principle, its quite easy to paint the chapter badge. Just do the thumb and a small triangle to represent the center on the hand. Then paint 4 sticks on top for the fingers and a pentagram on the bottom. Then fix any mistakes with the background color.
The trick is to make it equal all across the army. A trick i've to learn yet xD

These really do look great! The yellow is spot-on and you've added just enough battle damage to make it look realistic. Good stuff. :tu:

Thank you brothers!
I really like the weathered look on these marines but it seems i've gone a bit overboard with the latest ones. I will tone it down a bit with the next ones.

I just finished varnishing the plasmagunner for Squad 1 and the sergeant, heavy gunner and plasmagunner of Squad 2. Here are some pics of them:

70456560_10156661015929150_462713657915971038662_10156661016114150_7021849853365

 

The sergeant's right hand broke but i'm out of glue, so i guess i'll fix it later today as soon as any store opens.

I painted the numbers of squad 2 in red just to help diferentiate them in games, it seems like a nice changes.

 

I was thinking of finishing the Terminator squad next as they are already basecoated and then finishing the linemen of squad 2 and the command section of squad 7.

 

However, I am still at a loss when naming characters and sergeants.
Any suggestions you guys could give me please?

 

Cheers and thanks for reading!

You're a skilled modeler and painter.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Hello guys

 

I have edited the armylist as the only things i will paint for this army will be the centurion devastators and the rest of the assault squad, so that i can add some primaris units to this army (already started painting 2 intercessors for my kill team).

 

As for the rest of the units i might leave them to paint different armies.

I'll post pics of the intercessors when i finish them later on today.

Cheers!
