Devastator squad for Retro Space Marines

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Another squad down  – only one left!  This squad contains the two oldest models in the army in the form of the lead missile launcher which looks like some sort of RPG launcher and the sergeant which is a communication officer mini.  Quite pleased with this one as I was asked about why my slogans are in the traditional imperial style as well as some more gang-land type ones.  The reaonsing is the chpater is recruited from a hive world so there is a mix of up-hivers like 3rd sons of nobles, adventurous tradsemens sons as well as gangers who are all invited to attempt selection in the depths of the underhive.

After all – the underhive is just as dangerous as any feral world I could think of.  The marines are therefore of two mentalities – those of a staunchly traditonal imperial view with devotinal statements, aquilas and other liatnies on their armour as well as those from the gangs for whom kill tallies and the more aggressive statements are more common.

Tactical squad finished

Despite the 2nd squad of my company being finished 1st squad has now caught up!  I’ve finished the other tactcial squad and put the pictures up.  Only the vanguard squad and 2 more devastators to go…

Tanks added to Space Marines

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

I’ve got around to uploading the two tanks for the Space Marine army.  The Predator and Rhino are both the oldest versions of these vehicles and fit in well with the army.  Unfortunately a flat camera battery has delayed adding some of my other Mordheim/RPG stuff.  Hopefully by tonight it may make it online.
