awesome! Everyone should true scale! With my next marine I'll do a tutorial. Promise

Aaaaahhhh now this I could handle doing true-scale. Torealis, your work is awesome. I also am a huge fan of that commissar model, I think the one you've done up will look very nice next to your valhallans.

thanks pal! And honestly, its really not that difficult. Just a bit time consuming, mainly waiting for gs to dry...

This week I've got to take a small break from 40k to get ready for a fantasy campaign day at a friend's place. 1000 points all painted. I've got a fairly large empire themed vampire army, and I decided to add some greatsword grave guards to the mix.

This is the first guy I was really happy with. Turns out the greatsword kit is actually a pile of shite and I hate it, but if does break down into useful bitz...

Finally back to some 40k! Got a bit distracted by square based nonsense...

I've mostly been working on these grey knights. not a fan of the GK storm bolters, so ordered some sanguinary guard bolters arms, and I love the way they've turned out!

Scaled the same way as my normal mating, they look butch as ballz

Looks good! As a guy with an obvious inclination towards grey knights, I think you've made a very nice looking squad. Personally, I prefer the aesthetic of the original stormbolters - just due to the overall bulk of the marines. I hope that Psilencer is magnetised, because they are really a weapon designed for terminators or relentless special rule...

Thanks man, your Knights were a big inspiration to finally get some of my own. I definitely get where you're coming from about the bulk, and I guess we just have different opinions about space marine aesthetics. I avoided the bulky concept by not doing the standard terminator leg way of truescaling. I think the path I picked (or rather, stole from Veteran Sergeant) makes them more slender, and I needed the GK weapons to reflect that.

Whoops... so looking badass doesn't equate to being badass?

update!

My commission guy, Richard Harris, http://miniaturepainting.co.uk/ has sent me some SIP pics of my boys after their first sculpt session... and it's really nice to see the lads again!

I severely recommend looking at this

They look great, they really do. My only little niggle is that, as I understand it, their shoulder pads are on backwards but that's just ridiculous nit-picking.

They are on the wrong shoulder, technically. This is my fault, as I only bothered to look up which pad the chapter symbol went on, and didn't know that the deathwatch swapped the shoulders when they joined. But I'm really ok with that.

I have asked Richard to add battle company colours to the 4 who don't have them
