Here is the progress on my latest squad i will add more later (history and other squads)





Imageshack killed most of my pictures here is a link to my tumblr blog
http://dennis0bauer.tumblr.com/

[EDIT]
Here is the background i wrote down a while ago;

I hope this is the rightplace.

Why the Second legion disappeared.(possible name the Enlightened?)

The Second Primarch was whisked away like his 19 other Brothers. But instead
of being send to a war torn planet, he was send to the planet Gautama, were
people followed the Buddhist believes. He was found by local Buddhist Monks,
Instantly noticing that this kid was special they names him Siddhartha,
after Buddha himself, He was taken to temple and trained in the Buddhist
teachings and the martial arts. He bested all comers with his martial
skill but he was known for his kindness and piety.

When The Emperor finally landed he did not find are hardened fighter but a
peacefull spiritual leader. I know why you have come father, i will try to
bring peace to this stricken universe. And During the great Crusade he was
several times criticised by the Emperor by not taken a planet by force. Most
of his planets were gained by peacetreaties and mutual pacts even with
Aliens! (most of these planets were taken back forcefully after the Horus
Heresy and the Xenos filth was eradicated). Siddhartha, became more and more
disenchanted with his Fathers ways, He thought he found in Horus someone
with the same convictions, But after Davin Horus Changed, And Siddhartha
knew That Horus lost his way. Siddhartha tried to reason With Horus, but
after almost a fight broke out between Abbadon and Siddhartha, Siddhartha
removed himself from the crusade, He sent a message to the emperor, but the
Chaos powers made sure that message reached the emperor all Garbled up. The
Only thing the Emperor and His staff could make from it is that His Pacifist
Son and his chapter had gone rogue. Angry because of his son's treachery he
commanded that all records of Siddhartha chapter should be deleted from the
records. (the emperor did not know yet of Horus treachery and Siddhartha was
low on the emperors favourite son's list). He called for a strike on
Siddhartha's home world, but by the time the Army reached Gautama the
population was gone. Siddhartha and his fleet were allready on his way to
uncharted space.

Ideas for the army;
Dark Angel and certain Black Templar bodies would be perfect as Battle
Monks, Scouts would be more difficult as they need all to have shave head
and monk robes (eastern style). Close combat weapons could inspired by
ancient Indian weapons and/or Chinese budhist armies. Color would light
orange.

Rules?
Well there should be a dice roll for battle to determine if there is a fight
at all! so if the roll would succeed (for example on a 6) there would be
peacefull resolution resulting in a draw (Damn no battle :p) Furthermore
Siddhartha army will always go second as they only fight back when fired
upon.

Ideas suggestions, fluffwise and conversions are appreciated

You need to add more details to them to make them look more Buddhist. Its good idea, just needs more to make them look like they are based on it.

Ah, Sir, a novel is a mirror carried along a high road. At one moment it reflects to your vision the azure skies, at another the mire of the puddles at your feet. And the man who carries this mirror in his pack will be accused by you of being immoral! His mirror shews the mire, and you blame the mirror! Rather blame that high road upon which the puddle lies, still more the inspector of roads who allows the water to gather and the puddle to form. -- The Red and the Black by Stendhal -

Extremely well thought fluff, I like it. However-

Recent writings have shown that the two unknown legions were lost prior to the Heresy. They are referred to as the forgotten and purged. It is rumoured by some members of the Word Bearers Legion that the Astartes from one, if not both, of these unknown Legions were inducted into the Ultramarines after their Primarchs were 'forgotten'. An oath was sworn by the Primarchs to never speak the names of their two lost brothers. The loss of the 2nd and 11th sons grieved Lorgar deeply.

You might want to change it up a bit, so people don't give you weird faces when you tell them.

I like your painting, but you could use a bit more detail. Maybe highlights, or some shadowing/wash.

i am stuck with tamiya paint in Japan, and drybrushing has always been my go to skill, but i miss the old paints, these days the paints just dry too fast

Nice and novel approach to SM! I like the rule that if the die is cast a certain way, no battle takes place and counts as a draw, a very unique rule indeed

As a Buddhist myself, I find it strange that Space Marines would become Buddhists themselves. The concept of constant change seems impossible when Space Marines are so strongly indoctrinated into their "rank and file". Buddhists have to be able to follow their heart and it seems that Space Marines would be entirely incapable of this. Also, if there were Buddhist Space Marines, they would resist augmentation and other biological/technological exploits, including power armor. The fact that all things can and will be destroyed and reconstituted indefinitely is one of the central Buddhist beliefs and this goes against the usual Space Marine attitudes of undying faith in the Emperor, faith, etc.

All that aside, I like what you have done, I would have preferred to see more orange robes, as orange is a more sacred color. It would be nice to see some mandalas on their armor and robes. Another novel idea would be to base them as if they were running through waves of rainbow colored sand, as if they were destroying a large mandala.

Thanks for the comments, well if you can have vampire marines, werewolf marines and fanatical marines, why not buddhists? well i did some research and colors depend on the buddhist sect . There have been Japanese warrior monks.I just liked the idea of space marine legion that use war as a last resort.

One day i want to make the primarch, any suggestions would be appreciated

I absolutely love Space Marines with a strong theme, and yours is not only unique but also optically very strong! Looking forward to what is still coming,,,
Will there be Librarians bearing a third eye? dreadnoughts featuring Bodhisattva themes? Chaplains with those yellow "smurf hats"? Stupas and mani stones as goal markers? strings of prayer flags decorating the vehicles?
*claps in his hands like a small child* so many possibilities... Nice, nice, nice!

I used to use Tamiya red but curently it started to dry up unevenly, so i switched to red from DR.color (which has a slight gloss to it) the other colores are Tamiya yellow, brown, black, gun metal, white and flesh color.

Very cool idea man!

Are there going to be any Zen monks in the army? Maybe for a color shake up. Grey and white would look pretty cool for a special unit.

You could decorate the Rhinos with Buddha statues that you might find at tourist stores. I know that when I was in Nara last fall, they had a wide variety and pretty cheap too.

Loving those robbed bodies too.

As a side note about the robe colors earlier in the thread:

Thailand: Famous for the Saffron robes. Like your Marines.
Chinese/Korean: Brown, Grey, or Blue
Japanese: Black or Grey with kesa
Tibet: Red.

i used Vaseline but it interacted with the resin and destroyed the mold when pulled it off, back to the drawing board!
