I've had a bit of a mess around with these. Two tone looks good on the Chaplain, but I had to use an old metal pack to get it to fit. While on the old Captain model I had to use a new style one (!) so I've added a flag pole to that - looks good so the pressure is off hunting the old metal ones with poles :)

A completely red pack actually detracts a lot from the impact of the red claw on the Techmarine, so far I prefer the two tone for him but not glued one on just yet. The red pack looks okay on the medic, but I think I like white better. It looks a bit dull from the back, but I think it will stand out in an army where white is otherwise only used for markings insignia.

Pics when all is tidied up at the weekend! :thumbsup:

I look forward to the pics.

How about giving the techmarine a flag with a big ol' ad mech cogskull logo?

Edit: pics not picks :P

Now looking like this:



The medic's pole disappears in a bright photo, so these will look a bit dimmer than usual.

These two officers have flag poles added to the new resin pack, a very simple job and I'm happy with how it looks. Also far less bendable than the original white metal castings!

Looking good!

Obviously he isn't always going to be infront of a white background, but have you considered painting the medic's banner pole yellow to match the officers?

To be honest, no! It;ll be a moot point once they get banners, perhaps.

Update - third tactical squad, taking me to 45 painted Marines:



Perhaps some armour next?

Glad you like him - he is made from an old Techmarine biker and a more modern bottom half. I was worried it might look naff but happy with the result.

Looks great! When will you have an army picture ready? Lets see it all!

It'd be nice to have crew on my bikes, and maybe even a display board, for that. But I should make it a target for the summer, perhaps.

Clearly the purple/yellow version can be used for a chaos space marine army representing a company of the Knights of the Lost Unicorn* that have fallen to chaos wink.gif

Hey, thanks for looking at this old thread! I haven't updated it for a while, to be honest I haven't painted many of these guys this year. And they still don't have a Chapter name, but I like the Lost Unicorn bit, so I might use that, thanks.
