Who didn't spot this topic coming B)

Picked up a pair of betrayal at calth boxes and have been working out the force options, Here's where I'm at

Three 16 marine tactical squads
One 6 marine missile launcher squad
One 6 marine support squad with the choice of hb, flamer, plasma or melta (may not even need to use magnets) :blink:
Two contemptors
Ten cataphracti terminators
One chaplain

One praetor


Base coat of black and first coats of blue applied to the first (task) legion tactical squad and the same for my (reward) dreadnaught


I'm trying a new blue but it needs lots of layers to look right these are on 1 maybe 2 layers currently

Of course the dreads are getting some magnets and some green stuff :thumbup:

Possibly the fastest I've painted blue in a long while, onto the pics

Magnetized legion tactical (or heavy) support squad some on the first coat, others their second

First squads vexilla test mini (I'll do a better pic when i have some more daylight :blink: ) gold or white for the trims?
side note I'm thinking post calth for the army so red helms for sergeants :lol:
Chaplain consul basic colours are on still looking for a mk IV jump pack though

Master of signals kitbash

Needs a little more work at the rear

Front's ok mostly but I'm toying with changing the cloaks clasps and possibly trying to remove the chest decorations or at least the skulls

Second coat and base metal applied


Along with some magnets

And to finish once again a [I Swear Too Much] of the army in progress

Looks quite nice so far. Just the white parts seem too thick (the paint sorry my english is a bit rusty). As I'm having quite the same Problem here too no solution except of layers over layers can be given.
Smurf along fellow!

Cheers mon I think the white seems thicker due to my poor camera skills as it looks ok in natural light but there's more work to be done on all of them :D

looks like i needed an inspiration, and you provided it.
For my Blood Ravens, i wanted to have a Lysander anyways, so here's my stand-in for him, plus a stand-in for Captain Sicarius, even though i'm not sure if i'd ever [I Swear Too Much] him at all. The paintjob... well, another year or so, and it'll be [I Swear Too Much]. i swear! ;)

look at my horse, my horse is amazing...

Really like the red you've got there fireball, did you [I Swear Too Much] the praetors left arm as much of a pain to convert as I did?

Legion tactical squad

Sadly I forgot to do any rear shots but they all have holstered bolt pistols and combat blades.
Grenades and ammo pouches to come eventually

Just need some transfers and a bit of tidying here and there :thumbup:
