Hey guys, I've been out of the hobby for...7 years now? My finances have just cleared enough that I can start modeling again, and I'm back with a new Space Marine army. They are an Imperial Fist successor, the name is the Sons of Volundr. I'm going with a bone colored armor, with blue for the knee pads and trim. My painting skills weren't masterful the first time around, and I've had 7 years of skill rust on top of that, so these first batches of models are going to be basic tabletop, and I can go back and work on them again later.
I started this blog to both get feedback on where I can improve, and to keep me on track with progress. I've been sitting on these guys since July, and don't even have a full squad finished.
But on to what I have and where it currently is:
I picked up the Dark Imperium box, a tactical squad, a sternguard squad, the "start collecting" box, and a predator tank. Couple of units aren't shown due to me forgetting about them (oops)
The first combat squad. Hoping to have them done today. Based with Corax White (spray can), and the layer is Ushabti Bone, with Teclis Blue for the trim and aquilla, Leadbelcher and Stormhost Silver cover the metals. The weapons are Abaddon Black, with Leadbelcher for the mags/barrels, and Mephiston Red for the grips. I'm using Agrellan Earth for the bases, with a wash of Nuln Oil when it dries.
Also hoping to finish these guys today as well. It's the other half of the tac
1st squad of Primaris Intercessors. These were the first models I primes and painted, so they look a wee bit worse than the others.
2nd Squad of Intercessors
Hellblaster squad. I'm going to hold off on painting these guys until I improve, and get more paints for highlights and such.
And the last picture is of my Ancient. Painted the background of the banner, and most of him (still have to do the gun)
EDIT: Apparently my spelling is atrocious when I have a 1-year old on my lap. Oops.
