So I've been painting assault marines, Sanguinary Guard-based assault marines, in fact. It's all about that Adonian musculature.
These guys are, as you can tell, something of an anti-armour squad. They are Squad Actaeon, veterans of the Battle of Optera who have taken battle gear and relics from the Lamenters to restore and replace their former wargear.
|Sergeant Actaeon loves his new wrist-mounted bolter...|
|I've also used some FW bits on here, specifically some Phobos-pattern pistols which I think look wicked|
|There's parts from what, three different Chapters on here... Minotaurs pads, Blood Angels torsos/legs, Black Templars helmets. I do love the bitz box :)|
|The witch hunters on the shelf disapprove of all this gold.|
If you're interested, their names are Matthias Hopkyns and Bultitudes Loke.
|Drum mags look wicked on bolters!!|
The second is either going to be a Devastator marine or a Devastator sergeant (yes I know he can't have a heavy bolter but... it looks cool):
|His bionic eye lets him perceive the awesomeness of his drum mag in glorious HD|
Coming soon: a Storm Talon made from a new Nephilim fighter, plus a hodload* of Terminators.
*A hod, as featured in the classic DKM song Finnegan's Wake, is the thing in which a bricklayer carries bricks.
