Please excuse my limited knowledge of Latin... :laugh:
Anyway, a while ago I made a thread documenting the beginnings of my first few projects for my Roman marine army. It went on for a while, so I've decided to bunch everything here instead. Eventually, I plan on creating a nice big space marine legion (lots of greenstuff, bleh!), but due to exams and such I haven't had the opportunity to do much yet.
So, here are a few old pictures of I had done months ago:
The commander (and his chariot):
And the ever-popular Ballista-Vindicator (I call it the Ballistacator for short ):
Oh boy did that ever get mixed reviews... lol
And a few unmade tactical marines.
This last weekend I found myself with a lot of spare time, so I got to painting! The Ballistacator and commander are now done. I just sort of made up the colour scheme as I went along (as I tend to do), so at first I wasn't too sure of it. I like it now though, I guess it gets better with age.
Oh wow, that's a lot of pictures! Anyway, that's what's done so far. My exams end next week, so I hope to have a good couple squads of tactical marines done by the beginning of January.
Thanks for looking, and C&C are always appreciated! k:
I have to admit, when i first saw your Roman Marines (In another thread), i couldn't see the greenstuffing good enough, but now i see it's pretty good. What about using the studded tabard from the Commander kit on the commander?
I did try to use that tabard that comes with the commander kit, but it didn't fit too well with the BA chest plate I gave him (after all, he needs abs!), so I just abandoned the idea and made a couple smaller ones on his sides with greenstuff. Then I did the same with the tactical marines, so it all works out.
No engine on the chariot? Well, that may be. I guess it runs on the same magic my Helblaster Volleygun Leman Russ Executioner runs on.
I will count it as a bike though. Originally, I planned on making a whole command squad on chariots with storm shields and power weapons/fists. It would have been fun and fluffy to use, but at over 500 points... I think I'll make that a project for after I've completed a 1500 point army!
Thanks for the feedback on the paintjob too. I guess my painting instincts paid off, lol.
With any luck, I'll be working on my tactical squads by next week sometime. :victory:
The commander looks great. The green stuff is cool. I looked at it though and something was bothering me and eventually I worked out what it was. I think his eyes need colouring. He looks a bit flat to me.
The chariot needs some kind of evident propulsion. It looks weird on it's own.
I should probably apologize for the huge delay in this project. University and work have kept me busy, so these guys haven't really been my top priority. But I haven't forgotten about them! I really do plan on making this army, honest!
Besides, did I specifically say that I'd have those squads done by January 2011? lol nope!
Oh wow, has it really been 2 years since I started this? Ah, the memories...
To be honest, I don't really know what's going on with this army. true, I would really like to work on it, but for now I just don't have the time. Or the patience to modify every model in a primarily infantry-based army. Big cool models like tanks (or in my case, titans) are one thing to work on a bit at a time, but an entire army like this requires time I just don't have now. For now, what little I have just sits on my shelf next to a smattering of Tau Battlesuits looking pretty...
But mark my words: one day I will work on this army again! It may not be today, or tomorrow, but one day!
