Red Scorpions: Rhino completed

I completed the work on this yesterday, but can't say I'm too fussed on the Forge World doors. They look good but I can't quite put my finger on what it is that I don't get... Personally, I'll stick with decals. Its up for sale on eBay (here) right now, ending this evening if you like it.

I've done some work on the Thunderfire Cannon, so hope to get that finished and photographed in the next few days.

Red Scorpions: Bike squad & bike Captain built and ready

 After some good eBaying, I managed to pick up all the required bits and pieces needed to finish off the unit. It seems the standard Space Marine gravgun is expensive online, so I went for two of the Forge World graviton guns instead - which actually look a bit nicer. Full unit as above. While acquiring those bits, I also picked up the necessary parts to change the sergeant seen in the original post into a Captain on a bike, making the above into a nice, combat-squad-able troop choice. He can be seen below.


Right now they're drying on their new bases, with hopefully some time to get them primed over the weekend or early next week.

Red Scorpions: More buying, thanks to the new Space Marine Codex

Well, the new Space Marine Codex brought the need for something to fill the role of Fast Attack in the Demi-Company formation. I've previously done lots of jump infantry (in both Night Lords and Raven Guard armies) so I went for something I've not previously done - Space Marine Bikes. Naturally, I went for the big, ten-man squad (or eight bikes plus an Attack Bike - ten marines). Above are the first three to arrive and below is how I plan to fit the full squad plus sniper scouts into my KR case. This little KR case fits into the bigger KR case, meaning that I've somewhere in the region of 3500 points in a Kaiser2 bag with the below Aquilla1 case neatly tucked into one of the zipped pockets.

Red Scorpions: A new Space Marine Heresy-era Predator - oh, and a Land Raider Spartan

Built from bits is this 'Heresy' style Predator. It looks good, I think, but I'm not convinced. Lots of the parts came from Chapterhouse and a few Forge World bits. If you like it, you can find it on eBay just here  ;-)

Shown here next to the Predator Infernus...
... and alongside the newest addition to the army - a Land Raider Spartan
