Hi there! Starting up my WIP thread and starting with my current main project. A little preface, I like my marines to be battered and dirty. I am not a god tier painter, and this is a tabletop force. I have not played Loyalist Marines in a very long time, I have been watching the new Primaris releases from afar and have began to appreciate the fact that they emulate the old legions with their massed battlelines and specialist squads, and so I embark on an adventure into this new army.

 

These are the humble beginnings of the Mastodons Astra chapter - This is the first line squad they're nearing completion and maybe I'll name each squad after their sergeants later on.

 

The Mastodons Astra are a Semi-Codex Compliant - They are of Imperial Fists stock and are known for their heavy infantry assaults and light but still very much power armoured skirmishers & snipers this makes them highly effective city-fighters. They lack heraldry (as the paint is normally stripped from their armour within the first minutes of war). They're going to have a lot of infantry with Dreadnought support. They are not however a pure Primaris chapter. Ground pounding Intercessors marching ahead of the 2nd Captain and his Sternguard supported by Dreadnoughts and Incursor marksmen is the plan.

More to come soon - I'm off to finish these lads and prime more mini's while the weather permits.

Excellent colour scheme and realistically "battered".

Looking forward to seeing even more.

"The adjective desultory comes from the word desultor, which was a circus rider who would leap from the back of one galloping horse onto another. From this literal sense of jumping from one thing to another, we get the modern meaning of desultory as jumping between things without a logical purpose."

 

This absolutely sums me up when it comes to hobby projects (and forum names)....

 

Previous attempts at forum names include Brother Ophamion, The Putrid One and Jarl Ranulf......

Great name for a successor chapter and an even better color scheme! Are the red gauntlets significant, or symbolic of something bigger?

If you could, please share your basic paint recipe as I am really excited for how you achieved such a cool beige/off white color.

Thanks man - Maybe, you might learn in time {;

 

Sure thing - Wraithbone spray, recess shade with agrax earthshade then a 50-50 mix of agrax and medium for a light wash over everything.

 

Love the colour scheme!

 

Thanks my man, just finishing these lads up now will post in a second.

Not sure if your interested, but Pop Goes the Monkey does actual Elephant/Mastodon Shoulder pads. Great work so far btw.

I recognise my failing and will be sure to correct it

I have seen them, I've used 3d printed shoulders from there before, they're okay but I am not a huge fan of Shapeways plastic, but thanks :)

 

 

As yet unnamed squad complete! (Apart from finishing base rims).

Great scheme! The black parts of the backpacks work really well and just add a nice bit of contrast. Have you dipped/washed these? The battered/damaged effect works really well.
