I decided to start a blog on these forums, hoping to keep up with constant work needed to complete my force in a timely manner. Ever since 2008, the year I discovered Warhammer 40,000 - White Scars were my loved chapter of Space Marines. It is high time to make them happen, and to future proof the force I aim to keep infantry pure Primaris. My personal opinion is that vanilla marines look daft and out of place next to these new guys. Can't look at them in the same way any longer.
More so one thematic part of the force is the use of flyers. Never done that with my armylists before, so want to have that here. Already own one Interceptor that is waiting to get on my painting table.
To start off the blog, here is a "completed" Reivers unit.
Learned loads with this unit, I think the next patch of infantry will be quite a lot faster to complete! Wasted lot of time with the armor given the results and look of them. I chose to paint Reivers first, because in current 2000 points list I don't have them, so they made a perfect practice unit for figuring out the process of painting this scheme.
I have used muted colors here.
> White is actually grey. (Ulthuan Grey is the brighest highlight)
> Red started as brown (From Doombull Brown into Evil Sunz Scarlet)
I call the "The Brotherhood of Gereg", 15th Company of White Scars. I know by lore they have 10 companies like other codex-compliant marines, but I decided to skip some numbers. I like the sound of 15th! I will be painting squad markings and such, but for now I am unsure if I want to paint some company marks. I am open for ideas!
Next on the table - 10x Intercessors. They will be two units of five guys, auto bolt rifles and sergeants bring in the thunder hammer.
