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.
