Heres some more of my marine chapter, the Burning Fists.
First two are Tactical Squads. Note the matching chest pieces and honor badges within each squad. All squads are led by a Vet Serge, who will have taken his own personal icon, which is then spread thru the squad and marks their personal transport (no shell game here). The power fist is their symbol of rank, and is the name sake of the chapter.
Third is a Chaplain and Command Squad. Used to be a vet squad, but I liked the Chaplain rules when the current codex came out, and he was promoted. I've never gotten his sword replaced with a crozius yet however. The cloak was a gift from a Space Wolf he battled along side of in one campaign and he took the white wolf as his afore mentioned icon.
Next up is a squad of Assault Marines, slightly damaged. The wings are from Void, and if I had thought to take a rear shot of one, I melded a marine backpack into the back of em rather nicely, so they still fit with the rest of the army. Why wings? You'll see the significance of those in a minute here.
Two generic Librarians, the terminator I never finished painting. Because psykers are discovered earlier on and trained separately they do not go up thru the normal system of ranks, and thus do not have the power fist. They have their force weapon instead to show their status.
The joint leaders of the Burning Fists, The Angel of Flames and Aduro Terrarum. My chapter is not lead by Captains or Masters, but instead by their Librarians and Chaplains. The Angel is the chief Librarian, and assumes the role as the avatar of their personal god, while Aduro is the high priest. Note the wings are not some kind of mutation, they're a highly advanced system of anti-grav, not unlike Swooping Hawks, and are a part of his suit of armor.
Various other WIP
projects include a plasma gun tac
squad using the Black Templars bits, a Techmarine plus tac
squad bodyguard base with the Iron Hands bits, a command squad from Dark Angels bits and various Razorbacks to go with em. The theme of individualized squads is nice because it allows me to use all the cool bits from the other chapters.
