Devastator squad for Retro Space Marines

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.
