this army's theme is simply brilliant, great choice of color. Also the eyes really stand out
Looking damn good as a full collection
The eyes took a couple of trial and errors before I got them to where I liked them, but they certainly look better than my old CSM haha.
oving the whole army shots! They look really excellent all together and I bet they'd look fantastic on the tabletop.
Aye, can't wait to get home so I can bring them out. Sadly, there's still so much in the works until I have a proper army, and I feel that something like this needs to be all or nothing.
As for your marine naming idea, Turnip isn't the greatest name for a marine but you can always modify it a bit and I'd like to immortalised as Marine 3 from the second tactical squad if possible
Done, let me know if that's an acceptable naming convention.
As usual, things are lookin' tip top in here! Those group shots look great. Tons of work done on this project!
'Never Trust a Wizard' might make for a poor model name, but may also improve your chances of making 'Deny the Witch' rolls. The second marine from your first squad has a pretty bad-ass running pose...
The acronym by itself I think would work. Name changed of the marine in question!

Oy... shit... I haven't written in ages haha. I have been toying around with the idea, I'll see if I can crank something out for next month's HOES, which of course means I'll have to tailor the theme to my best interests, because I'm not above cheating
Holy sh*t! Amazing job dude. Really loving the gritty worn look of the armor and the real grim dark bases! :D
Glad you like them! At first I'd been debating between a Care Bear based heresy army, but figured war-torn and nasty as hell would be the way to go
It's taken a couple of days longer than I'd meant, but here is the 2nd Cataphracti of Squad Triarii.
I hope to get the next 3 done before I have to pack my stuff up in a couple of weeks, just to keep myself at (what has been up til now) a rather breakneck pace of painting for the past 3 months. Hell, 20 tacticals, 3 HQs, 3 contemptors, and 7 termies is a TON faster than I normally am, though once I get home from deployment it'll probably resume normal pacing. Next up, Heavy Flamer cataphract (Heavy Flamer courtesy of the good ole bitsandkits store, figured I'd give him a shoutout).
As kind of an idea as to what all I have left to work on (in my possession, this is no where near the end of the list):
-Deimos Predator - Executioner
-Deimos Predator - Magnamelta
-Spartan Assault Tank (all tanks I'll be painting with an airbrush - er, learning how to paint with an airbrush once I buy one - when I get home)
-2x Warhound counts-as (the Dreamforge Leviathins) - Legio Mortis themed (probably)
-Relic Contemptor with Heavy Conversion Beamer and CCW
-1x Justaerin with Plasma Blaster (actually will need to buy this one, probably piece meal from a bits store since I only need 1 more and getting the other 4 seems like a waste)
-4x apothecaries (the FW kit)
-5x Centurions/Honour Guard (the guys with the spartan helmets, haven't decided how to kit them out yet)
-40+ Mk II, III, and IV Marines, unsure what weapons loadouts, other than 9 more tacticals to include another vox operator and sergeant, I have been sorely tempted to make either the 10x flamer legion support squad or some 10x missile launcher units (because that would be fucking disgusting). Long ways to go before I get there though...
-20x "Imperial Guard" Dreamforge Stormtrooper kits to accompany the Expeditionary fleet - will be red, black, and gold armoured
-3x "Imperial Guard" heavy weapons sections (more Dreamforge) to accompany the Expeditionary fleet will be red, black, and gold armoured
-16x Imperial Guard (with Pig Iron heads) to accompany the Expeditionary fleet, undecided colour scheme
Enough of my babbling, though, hope you enjoy!
