Wha? You bought this? I am actually shocked. Also, I thought you ditched your Space Marines? Well, if you have, just start with one you haven't done before. How about Crimson Fists? Or Mantis Warriors? One of the Badab War Chapters? Or one of the original 20 legions pre-heresy? Anything but those Angry Marines...
The obvious choice is the Crimson Fists, but I think it'd look sharp painted up as one of the Heresy-era Legions - Maybe Imperial Fists, or Emperor's Children?Looking forward to whatever you come up with!
lol, to be honest an Angry Marine was my 1st choice! Neverness why do you hate them so? I tried Crimson Fists once..but that just ended in an oh-so-fluffy Ork looted Rhino. I still have a handful of Marines, most (well, 4) are in Black Dragons livery, or just painted black w/o markings, but I wanted to do something else with this guy. Oh and no, I didn't buy him. Kushial gave him to me as a late wedding present. Actually Mordian, I was thinking that his unusual weapon would mark him out as a perfect representation of the Alpha Legion special character 'Exodus' and I do have a squad of plastic MK IV marines coming to me soon...
Ah, well just go Black Dragons then. I always dug their background. The Angry Marines...I just never found them amusung. Seems like a joke gone too far, which might be the only reason to do it really...LOL As for myself I have the originals and this new one and I think I will put one in all my SM armies but The Celestial Lions as it only makes sense that the "ork snipers" on Armageddon would have picked him out...;)
Old school Space Sharks - easy choice in my mind. But not the grey armour version, the camo armour from the original Badab books.
Yes those old camo schemes were really cool. I always liked the Dark Angel camo scheme from that time.
(And by "Badab books", I of course mean the original images from the Compendium or Compilation or whichever one they were first previewed in.
Oh god, the yellow/orange and black camo?!? That looks like it'd be a nightmare!
Tricky to paint, but the finished result would look amazing!
Whilst that might be kool, he should really be a Crimson Fist.
Perhaps, but 'should be' and 'will be' are two very different things...
Looks like a tinboy to me...
Star Phantoms or Relictors would be my vote.
EFF it: Bring back the Rainbow Warriors!!!!
Reference for you. http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Rainbow_Warriors Looking at it though it's probably going to appeal more to Screech...;)
Oh I know who they are and what they look like, and um...no.
Drats! Foiled again! ;)
