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. whistling.gif

 

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! Troops.gifTroops.gifTroops.gif 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. biggrin.png

So true! Surprisingly one of the least present chapters what I have seen. These days see even Raptors or Charcarodons more!

 

Thank you for the warm welcome all.happy.png

As I am basecoating 10 models of intercessors, I thought I would share my planned work log for the army with some bit of reasoning. Some for looks and thematic reasons, but also gameplay influenced decisions.

 

  • INTERCESSORS # 1 - They form the backbone of my infantry. Will come in squads of 5 models, grunts equipped with auto bolt rifles for constant Advance. Sergeant flails thunder hammer and thus, we have a unit that provides numbers in all phases of the turn. Good looking models, and like them in gameplay.
  • PRIMARIS CAPTAIN # 1 - I think every Space Marines force should have at least one, just fits in so well. But I do this because I got it in battleforce box. Would prefer Phobos HQ options over him otherwise.
  • STORMHAWK INTERCEPTOR # 1 - Finally getting into flyers! I hope I really nail the painting on this one, because I want it to be main piece of the collection if only possible. I think flyers fit in well for White Scars. I mean cmon, offensive infantry need their fast and heavy support!
  • BLAST FROM THE PAST SPECIAL - Won't tell what it is beforehand. Won't use it for games, but I want to model and paint one.

 

Rest not figured yet, but we will see some Invictor Tactical Warsuits and Infiltrators! Also Impulsors for intercessors...

Sealing the basecoat

 

Intercessors + Primari captain has been basecoated with Dryad Bark, and sealed with varnish after basing. This is the first phase I do before painting minis, as now when we scrape them for battle damage (with a tooth pick or barbeque stick), we reveal the dark brown beneath. I think for this purpose, dark brown is lot better than full black or darkish grey.

 

Next phase will be getting nice clean base color for our white armor.

Assembled Gunship #1

 

This morning I didn't feel like painting white armor, but I still used hobby time well, and assembled the upcoming gunship! Bought it 2nd hand last year, and it was started with assembling. Previous owner didn't send me the instruction sheet, but gladly internet was aiding me.

 

I am confused though, as plan was to make an interceptor, but the sprues were lacking it's canopy. Slightly confused now.
