I haven't had the chance to play more than one game since the new codex has dropped so I'm still experimenting with units. Here is what I'm planning to run this weekend:

I finished my assault terminators. I'm pretty sure I'll be using them frequently so it was a nice unit to finish. You'll also notice I used sergeant storm shields on everyone. I think it makes them look more intimidating :). I'm excited to play these in an inaugural game. We'll see how the 25 point increase hampers them. I doubt much.

Chapter Master Jorbek had served Emerald Fists for over five centuries before succumbing to a parasitic creature which had affixed itself to the base of his spine. Once the apothecarium identified the parasite, Jorbek walked to his reclusiam, removed his helmet and severed his own neck, irreparably damaging neurons required to permit his resurrection as a dreadnought. This selfless act was completed minutes before the creature could establish a psychic link with its hivemind and drain Jorbek of the chapter's secrets. The Emerald Fists have left his corpse and holy armour untouched aboard the battlebarge Shield of Valour for nearly a millennium to honour his sacrifice; robbed of the chance to die in glorious battle for his primarch.

Here's some paint on my hammer terminators and objective terminator guy. I spent a long time debating which parts of the shield to do green and went with the outside bevel instead of the outside edge or inside panelling. I think the minimal green fits better with the tactical marines and the rest of the army. I even used this objective partially painted in my last game. Sadly we had to leave him behind - Stupid paladins :).

Here's my second tactical squad complete. It took I think over a year to get a playable marine force that didn't need scouts. Shouldn't have waited so long! Anyway here's 10 of 20 of my current force. Now I'm moving on to rebasing everything with these slate bases. All of my 40mm models have them and I thought it was time my 25 mm models had them too. If you look at the 2nd and 3rd picture you can see Sergeant Namus holding his combi melta (I made this before I knew sternguard had such readily available bits). I also used the forge world heavy weapon for the squad since they lend themselves easier to magnetization and don't require a large pack to be painted as well.
