WIP of the first marines I've painted in about 20 years
Part of a small RT band I'm going to do, last night and tonight I've done Sergeant Pluck and Marine MacCruiskeen and Joe the comms officer.

Looks nice and solid. I used to have that comm's guy.
You may wonder if old or new 40K is better.
Ask yourself:

Did Bolt Thrower write about Rogue Trader or 7th edition?

Re: Challenge: Sci-Fi Week

All right, here we go! These are some Reaper Bones IMEF marines I had lying around. I have put a more detailed post about them at my blog, but here's the pictures. I think my photography is worse than my painting, or at least that's my explanation:

They are a bit rough and ready, but on the other hand I started them Tuesday morning and finished them last night, so my speed is pretty good! Their armour plates were meant to be more reddish, but it turns out that the GW red wash is more like a red-wine wash. Still, I think it actually looks OK. Maybe they worship Slaanesh.

Re: Challenge: Sci-Fi Week

Update! I have painted up the sniper and added a transport that I kitbashed out of a toy armoured car.

I have written another post about it on my blog, but here are the photos:

So there you go -- I think that is likely me done for sci-fi week, but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome: 6 troops and an AFV!

Damn, those headlights need cleaning up, though.

Re: Challenge: Sci-Fi Week

Ok, so there are some extremely talented people on this forum (part of why I read it!).

I will later today be posting my Sci-Fi week model. It is not as good as many done this week, but I thank Chico for this challenge week as it has given me a deadline and meant my first model for BOYL is actually complete. All I need now is next week's challenge to be something like 'sidekicks', 'groupshots' or 'xenos' and I might actually be on target for the August event!

Re: Challenge: Sci-Fi Week

Can you rename this challenge "Sci-fi fortnight "? Coz I won't have this behemoth finished by tomorrow :(
