Novamarines update - Captain piccys

Some pics of my captain, with base colours.

Space Sharks update - Captain & Command squad built

I've been building these guys as the parts come in. Trying for a very unified look so using a small selection of bits. Some stuff I'm going for with this chapter.
  • Very "army/marine" look with lots of kill markings, etc.
  • Vehicles with shark tooth decals (converted to be/look amphibious)
  • Drop pods with similar stylings.
  • Lots of dreadnoughts/no scouts.

Crusade Army second chapter - Space Sharks

Next chapter I started work on was the Space Sharks. I have been itching to do up a Space Sharks army for a while now. I always envisioned them like WW flying aces - lots of kill markings, tooth designs on the sides of vehicles, etc. - and who better to carry the deathwatch heavy bolter than a Space Shark?

These guys won't get any paint until I am done painting my Novamarines - however I wanted a very tight look to the models and began ordering bits when i saw them available eg. torsos are only the one's with tubing - SM or CSM, all with MK6 beakies, all with the older mk7 backpack, etc. And then while waiting for the hobby room in our condo to undercoat the Novamarines I figured I might as well put these guys together. Pretty much all plastics so far.

Here's a pic of my heavy bolter armed deathwatch Space Shark.

Beginnings of a Crusade Army - Novamarines

First new army after starting up again.. Planned to make a crusade army based on chapters linked through deathwatch members.

Was originally planning to keep this army small before starting another chapter (small = AoBR only + deathwatch conversion) - however you need 2 troops selections at least, I lucked out and found one tac marine from the old Battle for Macragge set (so I could technically split into two 5 man bolter only squads using the extra + dw vet as a sergeant) but also bought one of each box of scouts (Scout pics coming when finished modeling extra camo cloaks) and a librarian to be able to round out to 1000 points. (Plus the Novamarines fluff mentions variant psykers so had to have one)

Most everything from AoBR is stock so won't bother with pics until painted. I do however have some pics of my deathwatch conversion (the first of many!).

Uses the dw bolter, helmeted head, metal shoulder pad + Asmodai's power sword arm + plastics.

Introducing... da Badlandz Deff Ramz!

Have always loved specialist games. Case in point - blood bowl.
When I recently got back into the hobby, the first thing I painted was the Orc team from the blood bowl boxed set. With the Orcs it was easy to paint different pieces different colours so they all look different, so I decided no conversions for these guys - I converted the human team instead (more on that later...)

I really wanted to have fluff behind the team so I based them on the 1999 superbowl champion Rams. Great icon for an orc team, I went for blue/yellow instead of purple/yellow because my dark elves are purple. I named every player after a real Rams player of that year and gave them the correct jersey #.
