Re: Mods - Space Marines (September Complete)

Here's my first allied troops choice, as seen on their way to the basing station...

So as I finished them up, I was on a roll, so I started painting up the October squad, along with a Master of Ordinance, when I realized I hadn't taken a group "before" photo yet...so you'll also find them below, wearing the leftover paint from Squad 1.

So for those of you who don't get to read file comments:

You know those guys who say depth of focus is important? They're probably right.

Here's the second squad of Vets. I used some different legs and backpacks to make sure they don't get mixed up in close quarters.

Following that, a Hellhound and a Chimera I rescued from eBay and rehabilitated for November!

Two more chimeras I picked up and restored...might as well get them all painted in one go!

Looks like my guardsmen will be too good to get their feet dirty...

I've returned from my holiday visits with a scant seven hours remaining to finish the 4 basecoated vehicles I started. Luckily, my IG vehicle scheme is super easy, so I'm thinking I can probably get this Aegis done that I picked up at the beginning of the challenge....

With the deadline approaching (aka the only time I get anything done), I have accomplished my task in a serviceable manner. While they aren't the finest example of the hobby, they are painted, which is a couple steps ahead of most of what I see on tables near me. =)

1) A Hellhound and the Command Chimera. (Both salvaged from eBay, possibly the finest source of questionably built models available.)

2) Chimera for the Vet squads. Because walking just isn't cool.

3) A hastily painted Aegis. I guess for my marines, since the Guard are all mounted now. Maybe that's why people usually make the list before they paint things. Maybe next year.

I'll total it all up and see where it stands.

Nobody uses hellhounds. That's why.

Chimeras to keep the rain off my pampered guardsmen. Don't worry, I'm sure they'll get theirs soon enough.

Sometimes it's nice to have some ferrocrete between you and the hostiles.

Cool! I plan on fleeing in terror from that Hellhound if I ever face it on the battlefield.
