Old Man78 Little w.i.p, remember these guys are "salvaged/recycled " marines that have been used to experiment with, so a little rough looking, all the arms are cut and rotated, to bring the arms up to eye level

Subtle Discord Ah, the rule of three. One is a pushover. Two is a pain. But three becomes a threat that needs to be dealt with. I approve!

Old Man78 While paint dries, we shall start assembling, an iron clad, G.W venerable and a regular dread, because I don't have enough to do!

Khorne's Fist Much easier to start with blue and work to white. I start with *smurf blue, then ice blue on the ridges, finally the white, pretty much just on the turn of the coils.

*Not exact names. ��

Old Man78 Ah, I see, I started with white, and tried to add washes

Less paint on your brush. There should be almost no white on it, and just build from there after the first layer. Or try it with different colours. Green up to yellow is a bit easier than the blue.

Old Man78 Here is the squad Sgt with combi plas and chainsword, just needs based, but I'll do that when the squad is finished. Can't get a good glow effect on the plasma coils to save my life so may just go for the copper coil look later, may also redo the plasma muzzle in a heat distressed metal look, but these are rush jobs on bastardized minis i had ballsed up previously (recycling is good) so pretty happy with the look so far.

Old Man78 My attempt at a combi plasma, regular bolter with a chopped up plasma pistol underneath for the whole "real world" underslung weapon look, and the muzzle moved up in line with the cocking handle and ejection port, and the magazine shortened, as I think a 30 round magazine, albeit .75 cal would look small on an astartes

And a picture of the squad Sgt, I added a 2mm spacer in the waist and added some cut down pouches, it is not proper true scale but serves enough to fit in the belt kit

Long term I might stick 2 on a 60mm base with some slate boulders as a shooter/spotter combo, I have to order some regular scout bits to put together another squad of regular bolter scouts. I don't really like whole primaris thing, but the receptor dread is a very cool mini and inceptors are beasts and are a kind steroid version of what assault marines really should be
