August's goal is complete. If it wasn't so hot & humid I would have given this it's Testor's Dullcote. I will at some point also drill out the Multi-melta barrels. Anyhow, it's finished for this month.

pez5767: Thanks, I plan to keep hammering these last units and finish strong. The new codex may cause some alteration to what I will have to work on, guess I'll have to wait and see.

Ok, so after picking up the new codex today, I've had a sit down and have recalculated the list I'm working on. After all of the changes, the list appears to be 46 points cheaper now. I don't have enough points to really gain in some areas in proportions to what my son has in his army to paint yet and this late in the game, not much time to drastically change much. With that idea in mind, with 46 pts I plan to add the following to the list, but not much technically to paint.

*Tactical Squads #1 & #2 will have 20pts spent to gain Veteran Sergeants.
*25pts will be spent on upgrading Tactical Squad #1's Razorback to have a twin-linked Lascannon Turret and Dozer Blades.
Leaving 1pt unused.

Upgraded List:
HQ-Captain Cato Sicarius

Troops-Scout Squad, (4) Scouts with Sniper Rifles, camo cloaks + Sergeant Telion

Troops-Tactical Squad, (4) Marines with boltguns, + Veteran Sergeant with Bolt Pistol & Chainsword
Dedicated Transport-Razorback with Twin-Linked Lascannons and Dozer Blades.

Troops-Tactical Squad, (9) Marines-Flamer, Missile Launcher, + Veteran Sergeant w/ Bolt Pistol,Chainsword
Dedicated Transport- Razorback with Twin-Linked Lascannons

Elites-Terminator Squad, (9) Terminators-Cyclone Missile Launchers x2, + Sergeant w/Power
Sword (I know this unit is too large to ride in the Landraider)
Dedicated Transport-Landraider Crusader (w/Multi-Melta, using 10pts gained from points drop of the Storm Talon)

Elites-Dreadnought, Multi-Melta, Dreadnought CCW, Stormbolter

Fast Attack-Land Speeder Squadron-Multi-Melta, Heavy Flamer

Fast Attack-Storm Talon Gunship-Twin-Linked Assault Cannon, Twin-Linked Lascannon

Heavy Support-Vindicator

1849pts if I've added correctly.

And some in progress of this month's Tactical squad after basecoat & Badab Black Wash. Weapons are nearly done, painted on the sprue. The Twin Linked Lascannon also is in there pre-paint.

Almost finished with these guys. These are in progress shots after their transfers were added, along with a gloss varnish coat. Still need a dullcote sprayed on, weapons removed from sprue and glued on, and some gravel added to bases. In November I plan to still add some snow flock all at once to the infantry.

nice looking ultramarines!
Getting those transfers lined up on the shoulder pads must be a new level of difficult because of the vertical lines of the arrow under them that would give away any crooked applications.

Thanks- yeah, trimming them down and then applying them on the narrow, raised tactical arrow could be difficult. I felt at times that my fingers were too large to fiddle with them effectively :lol:

So, here they are, finished for September.
