Imperial Fists Legion Army WIP 1

Hi all!

Just a quick update to show the rest of the tactical squad, pre-undercoat and before I break out the air brush. Ever wondered how a marine with a powerfist holds a boltgun? Now you know! Looking forward to getting on to painting that plume! I love plumes:

Note: the things they're standing on are just bits of old cork heat proof mat. Easy to hold when airbrushing. However, they do make good rocks too, FYI!

Imperial Fists Legion

Hi all!

All happily married now thanks (it went very well, ta!) and have found a little time to finish of the Imperial Fists that I showed a few (shoddy) WIP shots of in my last post. So, without further ado, here they are.

First of all, here are the first 5 of my first Legion Tactical Squad:

And here's the Contemptor, front and back:

And his base, complete with guardsman who really chose the wrong place to take cover:

And here they all are, hanging out together and having a lovely time:

And in profile:

If you have any questions about the models or any of the techniques I used, scribble a comment and I'll see if I can help :)

I'm off to start gluing together the next 5 tactical marines, including the squad sergeant with his plumed helmet! Nothing says "I'm gonna conquer your planet, so be afraid" like a plume!! I'll post them up here when they're done.

Thanks for visiting!
