RT Space Marines army first glimpse.

Image

Under the desk where I earn my living a small army is slowly assembling....

Most of these figures were won on Ebay about 15yrs ago before prices and rarity became what they are today. I didn't really have many space marines as a kid but even then I lusted after these metal men, spending hours pouring over catalogs and saving pocket money. Most of that money got spent on Orks in the end so half my lifetime away here I am living the dream! I reecntly had a mega splurge on ebay :oops: so many more figures are sitting in paint stripper as I type. I also have unknown legions in my parent's attic so I will look forwrd to delving through cardboard boxes next time I visit.

More to come soon!

I'm allocating a little time every morning before work to sort through this project or it'll never get done! We must be lunatics, filing off mould lines, gluing into bases, filling the slot gap, gluing on backpacks, gluing on sand, sealing sand, cleaning up all the bloody sand(!)......

I'm actually thinking the army is a bit too big tbh and there's still loads awaiting stripping and assembly. I think I'll separate them into "divisions". The main army will be Crimson Fists (of course) then I'll get a bunch in camo' arranged, maybe Legion of the Damned, field police etc to break up the "boys in (dark) blue".

Lunatics? Without question. I'm learning that patient preparation can itself be quite satisfying; ain't it maddening to start painting to then spot a mould line which thereafter becomes the only thing you can see... Can't comment on the sand bit...

Looking good!

You think the army might be too big? What heresy is this? [FACE WITH STUCK-OUT TONGUE AND WINKING EYE]
