we are all entitled to an opinion but it would be nice if they were backed up by reasoning and i know no one has said anything yet but for any that follow please dont start an open argument, debate by all means but have reasons.

That made me Lol so hard. And do you know what? its the first honest comment ive read on a project log/modelling thread for ages.

Im more of a realism fan, ill spend all day weathering things, washing and drybrushing for a realistic affect ( although holydogshit, ive seen some TOO REAL stuff before ) so im not a fan of the bold colours, but still nice execution of your ideas

Thanks bobss. I agree that the squad is a little colorful, but that's cause I used Ork inspired colors and themes. Got some checkers and swirls, and some Evil Sunz red, some Bad Moonz yellow, some Death Skullz blue and even some Snakebites triangles and browns. If you go to my "Knights of Terra" thread you'll see that the rest of my army is not like that.

After my very first Tactical Squad, I decided I didn't want to have a carbon copy of every other unit out there. Sure, the colors are different, but everything else is the same. Sgt with pistol and chain sword, missile launcher and flamer and then 7 other Marines standing in the same pose holding the same rifle. Talk about boring! I decided to give each of my squads their own unique look and this one came more colorful than the rest. My next squad is gonna be a "Special Ops" squad. That one is gonna be the exact opposite of bright. Think "Rainbow 40K"

Good for you mate, some nice conversions here backed up with some cool fluff. My favourite thing is wondering what the orks are thinking when they see your vets coming.

"Demz mental humies are back! Da one'z wiv all the dakka and the spiky bitz on dere 'eads!"

In the spirit of honesty i'll add my only gripe though - what's holding all those swords and axes on their backpacks?

For getting an idea and following it right to the end, not just doing what is "right".+rep.
And the weapons on the backs, they are magnetized

1st off, they're amazing, well done! I love the bright pastel colours and the black ork shields. Great idea, and it's pulled off terrifically.

My only question (besides the sticky weapons) is where are those shotguns from? I really want one now!

I wish I could help you with that one. I bought a ziplock bag full of random bits on ebay, and they just appeared there. I know the Sergeant's revolver belonged to an Ork Grotz, so I think it may have come from that or maybe from some Empire figure. Hell it could be out of print like that Space Marine out-streched arm with an open palm.

Can anyone help out?
