Oldman's Burden! A Marine Plog
Dear Heretics, Oldman here posting the start of my long over due plog, since being recruited by Khornes Fist over 2 years ago I been promising to do this, but my procrastination slowed me down and to be honest the level of talent on Heresy while inspirational kind of frightened me off. Well after realizing my limitations as a hobbyist and that my ambition outweighs my talent, I have got off my ass and decided to start, albeit in a limited way.

I shall be doing a generally vanilla chapter which will be an Imperial Fist successor chapter, I originally was a fanboy of the Dark Angels but went off them as I thought they were just becoming caricatures of themselves and I have always liked the sons of Dorn. The fighting with one foot on the ground doctrine suits me personality wise.

The force I have at the moment is literally everything that is posted in the army painting challenge,( I have spent a huge amount of time stripping re-stripping marines in my quest for glory and not without casualties) but I have a zombie apocalypse stockpile metal/plastic marine crack to go through, and plan to have a dread and termie centric army as I love the models!!

So without further ado, here is my first offering, my scouts from the March army painting competition, which I'm very happy with.


And a wee close up...


Most of my paints are from the "old" mega paint set, the models were base coated caradon granite, then I dry brushed on several layers of grey going darker grey's out to dawnstone grey, I clipped most of the camo cloaks off the scouts and used gauze as the material for the ghillie suit, the bases are done with citadel basing slate and army painter ash grey flock.

C & c always welcome hints and tips appreciated just remember I may not have the skill to do it!!!!
Thanks for looking Oldman xoxox

Haha that will be on some models later, these guys however are not fully fledged marines so have not grown up yet!

Good point. Well made. Would be awesome to see someone else go tall.

The scouts are awesome btw.

Here is my next bit of burden and also my last entry in the army painting competition, I've been doing mainly vehicles and walkers in the competition because I find them easier and I want to clear work space. this will be a dakka pred but I will be leaving the option to magnetize and will include a very basic and subtle conversion pics as it happens!

Liking the ghilly suits. About damn time you got one of these off the ground. Keep it coming.

4th of April was the last time I updated my log too, and only just tonight have I had time to put some paint to plastic. How are you going with that predator?

Old Man78 04-17-14 07:10 PM

Thanks for the comments and the cookies folks, @Iraqiel the pred is comming along nicely, will have a pic up soon of the conversion which is small, I also have to build up a turret ring on the weapon plate, I like the side with the hatch covers showing never noticed that it was only built up for the turret on one side
