Hmm Ive got nothing for this month. Not to say I wont have something come through, but Space Marines are genuinely my least favorite faction and I dont keep a stock of their stuff around.
Yeah, before I started my charity project, I had one space marine, and he was already painted by the previous owner.
They are up there with Cadians for least favourite thing to paint for me.

I have Stormwall's little tribe in my to-do pile, and that's it's for marines in my life.

They are the Marmite of miniatures.

I´m in.

I have to options:

Option 1: A landspeeder I received in a bits-box-collection from eBay. He was "shot" several times and seemed to count as an objective marker (?). I got something on my mind for this one.

Option 2: An objective marker for my local GW store, which I promissed the to the storemanager after winning the Armies on Parade-event last week ...

I´m going to do both this month so I ll decide which one will be posted at the end.

Cheers

Are these guys okay? I can put in just a few of them rather than the full seven, obviously. Is the one with a lick of paint already okay to include?

I vote for option 2; that Space Marine looks interesting.

Not that it'll stop you from stomping us, but the rules state five figures, tops.

You can tilt shift and have a crowd, but the remaining ten are gonna have to be blurry/ scenery.

It bugs me so much that they are lined up weird instead of in a nice 3 x 5 formation. Oh dear!!!

Hi, all!

Always enjoy when my project happens to fit the monthly challenge.

Here are the component parts for my counts-as Vulkan He'Stan, Karl Sten.




Looking forward to seeing the entries at the end of the month.

Thanks and good luck to all participants.

I'm in. What I'm in with though is still up in the air. I'm tempted to stick to type and paint these Lootas (and their ammo grot, screw you rules!) who clearly are rather more fond of Astartes weapons than anything my Mek has to offer:



I'm also terrifyingly close to triple-jumping out of my comfort zone and starting either my Space Hulk terminators or a generic Ultramarines terminator captain....



I'm still undecided. Thoughts, anyone?

PS Am I the only one here who is really fond of how models look when you undercoat them black with a zenithal white spray? I almost don't want to paint them at all!

Ah all right, the 10 of them will be bonus models cheering then. Thanks for the heads up!

Well there was a month when someone was gonna do zombie hordes, so the suggestion was just to force focus the camera to allow five to be central but give an idea of lots.

I'm sorely tempted to join in, but I'm in enough bother this month without creating something to do.

Dammit, Buttery, you were supposed to wait until late in the month after he'd slaved over the whole fifteen before telling him five was the limit!

Hrm. I can't reasonably enter a squad, since the chance of me getting that many from started to finished while doing the monthly tale of gamers army challenges is slim to none, but I can probably dig out a couple of individuals and do some kind of either/or.

Hopefully.
