Hi all,
Fun side project on the go at the moment! During the 2019 Rugby World Cup I was part of a SuperBru predictor pool - #BokTwitter. Almost 100 participants offered up various prizes, and mine was 3 Primaris marines painted up in Springbok colours - for something like 73rd place biggrin.png 

At the end of the tournament, they were never claimed - so I put them on the back burner. 

I spent most of lockdown doing my own DiY chapter's forces, but needed a bit of a break from black, so I picked these guys up again. 
A couple of questions: 
1) What colours should I use for the eyes and weapons?
2) Where does 32-12 go? *Ducks for cover from the English members of the forums...*

A Springbok is certainly an unconventional Chapter symbol. I commend your imagination, and the effort you put in painting it and the flag that serves as a Company coat-of-arms.
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.
