Right, a few of you may have seen me asking lots of questions a few weeks back, and since then i have been painting quite feriously.
I have been collecting space marines quite unreligiously and scattered throughtout the last 7 years or so, slowly, through pocketmoney (at the time) and havent really done anything the last 2-3 years. However, after inheriting a few of my brothers older minatures, including oldschool greyknights from over a decade ago, ive decided to put my army together. It includes roughly
. 1 chaplain (to be fully converted, half painted unfortunatly)
. 1 libaraian to be mounted on a bike at some point (need wire, sculpting tools and GS)
. 2 dreds (scratchbuilt)
. 6 assault terms made and ever so slightly converted (a couple of slight pose converstions and weapons) from the grey knights (all the halberds died ) in land raider
. 3 10 man tactical squads, old metal models and newer, 'cleaner' models, 1 squad in 2 razorbacks (older gen, Baal pred turret and standard twin-las)
. 10 assault scouts, metal
. 5 sniper scouts to be bought
. 10 vanguard vets without packs in land raider
. 10 assualt marines, some plastic, some metal
. 5 bikers, 1 assault bike (bikers in disrepare, need some attention, plus assault biker needed)
. 1 pred to be bought.
. and another hs choice to be bought.
Right. 5 marines from scout assault, assault marine, one tactical squad, and the vanguard squad and 1 landraider are varying from done to half way done.
The army is called the Ivory Jackals, fluff is very basic atm, Origins are guessed at perhaps blood angels, as helmets are colour coded to Hs, elites, troops etc and as assualt based army. However, no black rage so speculation and coincedence is largely exspected. thats all so far lol.
last thing, colours are bleached bone for main, trims enchanted blue, alternating on both sholder pads, with slight codex grey here and there. Dark black, blue weapons with metalic under. Chest eagle red. Bleached bone helmets for troops. Blue for assault. Red elite. White for Hq (instead of bleached bone + red traded for blue in most areas, blue tied in some how for all armour.) Hs green or grey, suggestions? tanks metalic with areas painted in chapter colours, no its not popular.
Pics up sooon

hope this hasent been a great waste of everyones time
Cheers if u have read, will update as requently as pos, some nice conversions to be show at some point lol.
