So, my PC broke, and I'm stuck with a terrible laptop. On the upside, I've had more time to do a few things. Like finally assembling some of the battleforce I've got sat around.
First things first; the scouts, using a mix of scout and Catchan parts, with 2 Cadian heads.
I do kinda like the finished result; I figure the small disparities between the IG parts and the scout parts will be lessened when painted; they wont be an entirely difference colour then. If nothing else, I do really like the Cadian heads on the scouts; I know they're more lightly armoured than full marines, but why should they just run around without a helmet? Will probably use them more.
Next up is the assault squad; I've decided I really like the assault squad boxset, so there will be more at some time in the future. Better legs, better special weapon options, and jetpacks are always cool. Always.
The one with the normal hands is gonna have a flamer; I've got loads of them sat around from my IG army, so might as well put them to good use. Felt the stationary legs would work better with that too, leaving me with the dynamic legs for...
A captain. I dislike the AoBR one, mostly because why on earth would anyone want a captain with a boltgun? I mean, sure, it looks cool, but I'm not much of a fan.
The assault sprue having power weapons (gonna use this power axe as a relic blade; hence the purity seals), and a storm shield, is most excellent. Used the Heresy era style pads, because, well, they look cool. Figure combining them with the chestplate used (the sargeant one from the tac spure? can't remember), I could claim its artificer armour if the fancy ever took me, what with it being described as an old set of 'special' armour, passed down through the chapter.
Now, the lack of backpack on the captain?
Cut off the exhausts, added a couple of the, well, things, from the chaos vehicle sprue. Im not sure if I'll use it yet, but I do kinda like the look. Was aiming for a calgar backpack kinda look, didnt quite succeed, I'm not the best modeler, but I like it. Just not sure if I'm gonna use it.
Combi weapons! for my scout sergeant, or, well, whoever.
The combi plasma is... messy. Got plenty of spare plasma pistols and boltguns though, so can keep trying. The combi flamer works, imo, will probably look better painted too.
Finishing off a terminator and another tac marine (Painting the buggers takes so long that I can't do 5-10 at a time anymore :<), will probably start on my rhino after that.
Congratulations if you're still here. ._.
