Excellent work on the Death Company Marines.

Thanks Bjorn!

 
Masters of the Chapter done...at least the 4 from the pewter boxset from awhile back:

Even though these models are quite old now, the sculpts still hold up very well and I had a lot of fun painting up these guys. Still need to to the other 4 masters of the chapter that came out after these which are in finecast...

Hey look who re-surfaced while I was gone. Welcome back eggroll, the scale of your collection is an achievement in its own right, that it's all so well painted is astonishing. There's a real kick to seeing some of these older models with good, modern paintjobs.

Ha thanks Sockwithaticket! I do plan on getting the whole collection out for a full on photo shoot soon. Will probably take me a weekend to do but should be lots of fun. Most of my paint jobs recently have been of the older GW SM range and brings back a lot of nostalgia though I have to say the metal is a b!tch to work with!

They do have a nice bit of character compared to the plastic kits though. I never got any of those guys - no jump packs so i wasn't too interested - but your paint jobs on the  first and third captains (Master of Recruits and Master of the Armoury if i recall?) make me regret that...

Thanks though I’m sure you can still find these guys floating around on eBay. GW did put out one master of the chapter with a jump pack though...believe he’s still for sale these days on the website.

Next up is a 5 man squad of standard scouts all with respirator helms...definitely good for these times!

 

 

Where did you get these helmets, may I ask?

Sure you can! I actually got them built from a friend as he has a thing for respirators for some reason but I believe he bought them from bits sites and they come from the space marine scout on bike kit.

Blown away by the quality on display here. Those masters of the chapter models are awesome. I need more!

Thanks viewasjack! Since you asked...

 

Had these two squads kicking around for a loooong time and though it was finally time I got around to painting them. These are the old (metal as usual) Mk1 and Mk2 Space Marine veteran squads...

Had a blast painting these guys and the move to 32mm bases makes them look all the more balanced.

I love these old metal minis.

Especially great work on these power weapons!

 

If I may ask- how long did it take you to finish these squads?

Great to see you back after all of these years, eggroll! I'd forgotten how large and gorgeous your collection was, and I'm glad you're continuing to add to it. :tu: I look forward to seeing more updates in the future!

Wow! Absolutely fantastic paint-job!

You've managed to bring out so much life from those old sculpts. Apothecaries are simply beautiful. The faces you produce get miles of extra character and personalities.

Thanks Valkia! Sure...I think I average about 5 hours a model so 50 hours (give or take a few) in total for the 10 guys?

Thanks Dosjetka! I forget how large my collection is sometimes as well since it's almost all boxed up in storage most of the time :D. I'll find out how many I have now once I get them all out for the next army showcase.

Quick update with another metal model done and dusted. This time it's the special edition Space Marine sergeant with power fist and bolter that first came out in 2008 to celebrate the GW webstore.

Excellent work on a classic model.
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.

Great painting! Love how the character is brought out by the fantastic paint job in these. 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Another quick update. Been moving the past month to an apartment and first time in years since I've been able to get my own dedicated hobby room/office so I'll be setting up a new display case and getting everything back out of storage boxes/cases. Have the detolfs from years ago but been eyeing the Milsbo from Ikea or thinking about going the commercial display case route as well. 
 
Until then, here are two more bikers that were finished recently:
