After a lot of boiling water to get everything perfectly flush, I started putting the fuselage together for the storm eagle. When my elastic broke I had to improvise. Behold my newest vise, the dust mask.
Painting to commence soon enough! After much much pinning.

After making my libarian I had a spare model left from the legion praetor set and figured he had enough artifice to warrant making him a techmarine. Currently I think he'll be my master of the forge but that might change if I get more tech marines. I'm going to use him to man a thunderfire cannon. I think I'll use one of these as a thunderfire cannon.

Half a year ago I built these and now they're painted. Here's the modelling post. These are painting up about as quickly as 3 normal marines. They're larger but I find a green shoulder is a green shoulder regardless of size. I have to paint the weapons and a bit more detail and these will be ready to crush my enemies.

Happy New Year! I finished my scouts and here they are presented all sneaky like. Since my terrain is all painted in this dark brown I used the same colours on their cloaks. The cloaks were a small touch and they're very subtle but made painting these actually seem different than the normal marines. I magnetized one of them and game him a heavy weapon. This isn't a normal inclusion in the kit but the shoulder mounted heavy weapon was a good fit. Now I can swap between missile and heavy bolter. Someday I'll write some official fluff for these guys too! But for now, it's just pictures.

Washed the scouts, drybrush and shaded the armour and did some green trim. These models are pretty sweet. Sadly not posable really at all so I wouldn't really want 10. I'm going to run these as scouts in my army since the Fists are so undernumbered, even new battle brothers receive powered armour.

Finished storm talons! I've seen some canopies painted to be one solid colour, but I thought I'd paint the section of the canopy right in front of the pilot to look like some sort of a HUD. Maybe it doesn't at all but I think it looks a bit more visually interesting than a complete canopy paint job :). The wings are from a storm raven and the tail is the original wings moved back. Anyway I'm watching tv right now so no time for more chit-chat; pictures!

My storm talons are basically done. This was my first techmarine for the army (one of the pilots) and I used this to test out how I wanted to paint them. Fully red was too much so I opted for just a single shoulder pad. It's minimal and less 'christmas' colour-esque. The little green strip on the tail was an after thought when the models were done to balance the green out. The only thing left is to do the canopy but I'm waiting on some transparent paint to do something with them (a friend has a bottle so I need him to visit).
