Post by Brother Demetrius » Sun May 05, 2013 4:11 pm

So I know I'm starting late but all my guard have just been sitting around waiting to get painted and with the support of my wife I'm finally breaking them out to paint and play. This is a very themed list as well and really just to help me start painting. There's a little bit of background behind the list and the eventual paint scheme. I am a former infantry Marine based out of California. This list is a reflection of that and to the men and women of the Marine Corps and the other branches.

A sample. Just a Vox Caster that I tried out. I think he looks great.

Hello, i like your vox-caster and just wanted to mention the fact that this looks like a great list. However you marked a LRBT as 170 points, its really 150 so find the 20 extra points to spend
armies include 16th Castoran Heavy Infantry 3000 points and 88th krieg siege regiment 1000 points and 2000 points armored battle group.

The extra points on both LRBT are from the heavy Bolter sponsons. Per page 102 under the heavy support section. Thank you though. :)

Gus-IG Alpha Co. 5th Amphibious Regiment June Challenge

Post by Brother Demetrius » Fri May 17, 2013 9:24 pm

No way was it wasting time. It's all good. I always overlook such things myself.

Also I am putting up my June Challenge. I will be working on the Command Squad and the Melta Veteran Squad. Should be pretty easy to knock out as long as I have the time. Pictures to follow soon.

On a note: Because the Demolition speciality for veterans gives everyone melta bombs and one guardsman a demo charge I've modeled one figure with a pack throwing a melta bomb. This guardsman is the one carrying the demo charge for gaming purposes.
