Default Nacho libres purple perfectionists (a pre heresy emp children army)

Hey all, I recently got the idea to start a pre heresy army. Since I loved the book fulgrim I chose the emp children. Here is 5 mk3 tactical marines that I'm currently working on.

In the coming days I will post a pic of the finished squad.

Great choice

I really like their scheme and they always look fantastic on the table. Looks like you're off to a good start so will be back for updates soon

Complete bad-assery. I want to do a unit from each Legion one day, once everything has been released from the HH series (or at least each Legion covered) and I can pick the coolest unit from each range. Everyone else's project logs shall have to suffice until then!

Keep up the good work man, can't wait to see the finished product.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

That's a nice deep purple you are getting there, what's the method for it? Looking forward to seeing where this is going to go.

Glad to see another brother bearing the Palatine Aquilla the purple is not as dark as I like mine, but it is very well done.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more of your work!
