I've managed to get a half hour of time today to get this far on the build. The bolter and head are not attached to the torso to aid painting, and the torso is not yet attached to the legs. I've still got to pick a chapter and add chapter specific details prior to priming which will hopefully be next week.

As mentioned in my previous post, I've been working on an Undead team. I'm not overly happy with them but for a morning's painting followed by an Army Painter Dip - they're not bad! These can be found on eBay here with the Dark Elf team to follow this week.

As mentioned somewhere in a previous post, I was working on a Norse team for Blood Bowl. I used the motivation of an upcoming tournament to get them done in a week - and I'm very happy with how they came out. Sadly, the Norse are a bit of a glass hammer and the tournament (and the second one - it has been a while since I intended to post this...) didn't go as well as I'd hoped (apart from winning best painted, which was nice). So, as with most things you see here, they sailed the bay of E, but not before a lot of photographs were taken. Lots more below, and there'll be a Dark Elf, Undead and Dwarf team to show off at some point soon (two of the three need painting, so it might not be that soon...).

This is my new project, a Forge World Imperial Space Marine (which was bought brand new for about 40% of the price listed there...). It arrived today and I have to say I'm very excited about the work ahead on this project as its something completely out of the ordinary. Its also fair to say that it is far bigger than the pictures suggest, which is not a bad thing. Below are some pics and extra observations of the kit.
|The complete marine. Two head options and a multi-part Boltgun|
|Head options are with helmet and without, although the without is staring upwards at an odd angle|
|Extra bits (such as shell casings, random human skull, grenades and ammo clips) plus the scenic base|
|For scale with a 28mm Marine|
All in all, I have to say I'm delighted. Now all I have to do is decide upon what chapter (or legion) to paint him up in. My initial response is to go with Night Lords, but this will require some extensive conversion work - which I can do as its not like I'm rushing the project to game with the miniature. Another option would be Howling Griffons which could look striking. Maybe even something completely different... Suggestions most welcome!
