So a few weeks ago I decided to dive into white. Since a lot of my projects are coming to a close I wanted my Raptors Chapter collection to primarily consist of Phobos Marines and well since I have a lot of non Phobos Raptors in green I decided to add some yellow and make em Mantis Warriors because they are a White Scars Successor. So far I think I have close to 4K points to repaint slightly and well hand painting Mantis Warriors logo is a pain. I’ll post what I have done so far and post my progress.

Looking forward to seeing your progress! I play Mantis Warriors too and I hardly ever see other people painting them.

Fallout Hobbies and their Chapter Customiser have some Mantis Warriors decals just here https://www.chapterc...llections/zorak

 

I got a bunch of their other decals when I was doing my Astral Claws and the quality was really good.

 

I used 3d Printed Icons for my Mantis Warriors, but if I was to do them again I'd use decals.

Wow, I really like the way the Indomitus sculpts look in Mantis Warriors colors. Guess its time for me to fold and pick up some for my own army! Have you got the chance to field the quad bikes yet? How do they do?
