I've never managed to complete a full army of any size since I started playing (thats 21 years....), so now I've decided to get my act together and finish one. I want to get an army together that I can spend time on, converting each model to look individual, and seeing as it's been years since I painted a Marine, I thought, why not....
I like infantry, I'm not a massive fan of all the mech out there, so which Chapter to go for? The obvious choice is probably Grey Knights, but I'm not a massive fan, especially the Dreadknight!
Finally I decided to go for the Black Templars. I think painted well they look great, and converting model to have robes etc is something even I can manage. But to make them look even more unique I looked to Forgeworld. About 2 minutes later I had ordered myself 40 of the MK3 power armoured Marines, with enough Phobos bolters for them all.
Today is day 5 since they were dispatched, and still nothing has arrived. Seeing as it's my day off I thought I should paint something, so I made a start on my bases.
The bases are made of resin, and are ones I made and cast myself. I did start cutting the plastcard for each one individually. but it took so long that I decided to make a mould of them, and just cast them in resin.
Hopefully I'll get the Marines through soon, and then I'll get some more pictures up for you.
