Yo, I'm building a Raptors army with a Jungle type camo theme. I'm actually quite excited about it. Let me know what you guys think.
I might as well start with the Chapter Master, Lias "The Grim" Issodon. This mini is actually kind of special to me, because it's the first metal space marine I ever owned. It's been painted and stripped about 4x. This version, I hope, should be permanent.
My favorite part of this model is the bolter. I did my research, and really wanted to capture his custom bolter, Malice. Imperial Armour 9 says that Lias carries around a heavily modified Omen pattern bolt gun. I searched all over the internet and could not find what an Omen pattern bolt gun was, or what one looks like. I just had to let my imagination run wild.
I cut the original model's bolt pistol at a strategic location, attached an Ork Shoota, and used a piece of brush cover as a makeshift silencer. The strap is actually a twisty tie. The original model had a chainsword too, but I scrapped that in favor of a sword. The backpack is from the old Marneus Calgar model.
I also painted a Chaplain I recently stripped with Mean Green. Nothing really special about this one, except that he looks awesome.
Next I'm going to paint a couple Land Speeders equipped with Multimeltas and Flamers.
