The last batch of marines was rather small, being just scouts, centurions and a techmarine. For my next batch I'm going with a storm eagle, 10 assault marines with flamers and some sternguard. I've already started washing the storm eagle. You can see how thick I apply my initial washes in this image.

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.
