Warning: I get bored or distracted quite easily, So this is now one big WIP for all my 40k projects and will probably jump around like a cat on a hot tin roof. :D

Current infatuation = CSM Slaanesh.

back to the original post....

I must be Mad this is my 12th Marine army since the Rogue trader days.

I sold a Large Red Scorpions army a while back (I had had them to my self for about 7 years but GW started mucking about with them.)
and have been missing the Imperiums finest ever since, so here we go again...

This time its going to be 'Aquila Imperialis' or Imperial Eagles and loosly based on Roman stuff.

Heres the first chap..


and heres the progress so far on his squad mates...


The sarge (and all future characters) has a crest which is not too clear at the mo.

When I have painted this squad I will be at this Vet Sarge conversion which I am itching to paint.

very good, sharp color scheme there vash. I like those alot. Where did the "brush" come from? Is it home made? Great attention to detail, you captured the eye lenses great.

I love the romaneqsue look, Vis. One of the reasons I was a huge fan of Ultramarines. I'm italian, essentially roman, so I'm already a fanboy.

Just make sure to have veterans and ICs to have some cool Eagle tidbits. Can't wait to see more.

Insanity!

Its sort of taken a back seat to the WHFB Chaos blog army.
But I have some of the brass etched Eagles on the way to use a chapter symbols, so that will get them moving again.(Cannot bring myself to do them untill I know I could finish them.)

I am a bad one from jumping around on what I am painting :( .

Really like the Veteran Sargent. Nice posing and the creasts look great. Looking forward to seeing the rest of it when you get round to painting it.

Hi Vash, love the crests and read the tutorial here (no matter what I do I still get a big line of code)

What sort of plastic did you use? Think I'm gonna have to try my hand at that!

:cyclops:

Hi Red Orc, the plastic is a kind of foam board thats commenly used for advertising boards in shops. But if you can score it by dragging your craft knife side ways any will do.

Sorted the code link for you, but have also done a small links and pics Tutorial as its a oft asked question.

PS. This Space Marine project has been put on hold for now as the Prince of Chaos has summoned me back to the spiky side. :)

Thanks Vash;

1 - for the info;
2 - for tidying up my post; and
3 - for the link to the tutorial.

Hopefully, my posts will never look so ugly again.

I was thinking of using the crests (bigger, more down-the-back, generally a bit more Greek) on a new Chaos army I'm working on, so who cares if you've abandoned the Slaves of the False Emperor anyway?!

Ta muchly again!

So it begins.......


Not much to show at the moment ( I still have to borrow a camera.) but this will let you know whats on the way.

Heres some of the minis from an old army of mine that are the nucleus for the army. The paint scheme I rather like as I always fornd the glam rock style Noise Marines fairly appealing. But I don't like the pale pink of the current incarnation of the Emperors Children, its too wishywashy and these guys are meant to like bright colours.

Ok I know most of you have seen this pic before either in the Gallery or my recently posted Army list. (Which, finances permitting will become the basis for this WIP.) But its shows the Scheme I intend to use and hopfully will improve upon.
This squad will form up one of the Havoc squads but some of the Boltguns will be swapped over into other squads as I need an icon and want to add other poses plus it still need 2 Missile Launchers.

The first thing that is going under the knife is one of the MKI Noise Marines.

I have always loved this mini but the guitar is too dated IMO so the plan is to hack it out and replace it with a nice fat BlastMaster. I don't intend too have many BlastMaster models @65pts so this guy will stand out and wants to be as Slaaneshi as possible.
So out with the razor saw and scalpel and to work........

Love the animal prints! - go the glam rock marines!!

More seriously - very nice painting - great detail. That MK1 noise marine should look great. Can't wait to see it.- The idea of guitar armed space marines is hilerous though :lol:

Man I like that paint scheme in the first pics Vash. The Noise marines are damn cool too but they seem to be lacking something the first ones have. Can't for the life of me figure out what though. Either way, it's all quality man!
