Default Grave danger... Is there any other kind?

Hey guys,

Been a while since I've painted anything really... A mixture of laziness and a lack of primer has halted my progress somewhat. However today as I was looking through my bits to find "beak" helmets for a friend, I decided to play around with the bits, perhaps seeing if I had enough to create a marine.

The only legs I could find were from an assault marine, and I was always intrigued as to how they would look on a tactical marine, so I shoved a quick marine together and played around with a few poses.

I've quickly discovered that fixing poses is probably one of the most fun parts of the hobby for me. Each new one evolves in my mind from a simple pose to an epic battle scene or diorama!

Unfortunately, I feel as though my painting and complete lack of converting or hobby experience limits me to creating the amazing ideas inside my head (though given it's only been a short time I've started painting!)

Anyway, here's what I ended up with just mucking around with my bits... I'm so proud I may consider actually working on it seriously once I finish my Ultramarines army and have nothing else to buy for it.





So what do you think?

Wow that is one screwed marine.

Never nice converting though, that would make a great duel entry for a painting contest.

Well how can I argue that?

I'm glad it's a welcome idea among you and I hope to bring it to life properly soon.

Very amusing stuff. You should do it up as a Diorama.
