Default Khrangar's Multiple Marine Army Madness

Greetings,

While I may be new to the site, I am not to wargames. Over the years, I have amassed several armies for both WHFB and 40K, and keep being drawn to the same armies. Flash back a couple years, me wanting to do an complete Marine army, and actually finish a project. I chose the Sons of Guilliman from the same Armageddon article I would use again, a handy little thing, and set out to complete the army. A year and a half later it was done. Not playing much I decided to sell it off and start anew. Flash back a few months. Heresy era was big and I found my second colour scheme from the 3rd War for Armageddon WD article, the Angels of Vigilance all in Mark 5 armour. With the release of 5th edition I, like many others, purchased the AoBR box to make what would be, at the time, my second Marine army, The Emperor's Word. Flash back a couple weeks, I was contacted by the person who bought the original SoG and he wanted me to paint more for him. I was happy to oblige. It was a good way for me to make some money and paint a scheme that I quite enjoyed.

That leaves me with a total of 3 Space Marine armies that I am currently painting.

Angels of Vigilance

Current Army


Tactical Squad


WIP Librarian


The Emperor's Word

First 5 Tactical Marines


First 5 Terminators... and my finger


Dreadnought


Sons of Guilliman

Finished Scout Sergeant


WIP Plasma Cannon Dev and Scout


This is where the armies currently stand, partially completed and in various stages of assembly. Instead of starting 3 seperate logs for all the Marines, I figured I'd make one giant one. Because the Sons of Guilliman are commissioned, I will be painting them first as I need to paint 10 Scouts, 5 Tactical, and 5 Devastators by around Oct 27th.

For those of you who are interested in seeing the previous incarnation of the Sons of Guilliman:

I also have more pics of the other armies too if any one wants to see more.

Until next time,

Khrangar

outstanding work love them, I would just give the gold on the Dred some highlights or is it the pics, + rep from me

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

Cheers mate.

It's actually just the pics, they tend to drown out the gold highlights and make it more shiny than it actually is.

The knowledge, it fills me. It is neat.

Really nice scout sergeant.

You'll have to let us know how you do the bone colour on 'The Emperors word'

The bone is pretty easy. Snakebite Leather base. Menoth White Base (Bleached Bone) until smooth, Gryphonne Sepia wash, highlight with MWB, then MWB and white.

Here's my Librarian's familiar/wound marker with the sergeant of the tactical squad to show that the robes aren't too starkly highlighted.



On a side note, the only model I need in order to finish the AoV is Chaplain Grimaldus, so if anyone has him for sale/trade, please let me know.

Top notch work here. Very well done indeed.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Hey bud, good to see you 'round these parts!

Nice work all 'round; I'm particularly fond of the bone/purple scheme. Keep it up!
