Icon Crimson Fist Chief Apothecary Project

Hi everyone,

This is an update to my CF Apothecary project!

After months of sourcing parts for kit bashing for this project ive finally made a decent start. So far I have built four veteran apothecary marines which have sternguard statis including the apothecary special rule!
Ive done this so that the complete unit is playerable for my CF army.

This is what the project consists of

Chief Apothecary with servitor.
4x Veteran apothecary marines.

Please see the construct stage and then the two ive finished, with all comments welcome would like to know what people think?

This is also the first time ive painted white which is very hard to get right!
The marine with the powerfist is my second atempt which I felt went much better than the first.

Perhaps you could insert the images through the use of image tags, that would be allot easier for everyone.

Yes, I am a girl! Why is that so hard to believe?

Good choice of parts.

However, your white seems very thick, especially over the backpack vents. I suggest more thinner layers.
