If you haven't seen the other pics so far, go check them out. I've had some requests to see a character completed, so I set aside the third squad briefly to assemble a captain.
Hope you like it.
I'll repost their fluff here, but understand that I'm posting the fluff for people to look at the pictures in context. It is not an open invitation to vent your geek-rage about the existence of female space marines.
Some Quick Fluff Notes for those who missed the last thread:
The Valkyries of the Omnissiah are Space Marines. They are modified from regular human females using geneseed just like other chapters, except that their geneseed only works on females. They are not something that "Counts As" Space Marines.
The Background for them is that the two missing legions and their primarchs were female during the great crusade. During the Heresy, they remained loyal to the Emperor, but were nearly destroyed during the conflict.
Rouberte Guilleman was many things. A brilliant tactical commander, a keen administrator, and an immovable chauvinist. With his unique position of power following the heresy, he had an opportunity to reshape the Imperium as he saw fit. There would be no place for female astartes in his new empire, and the survivors from the two female legions were killed, their names expunged from all records, and their remaining geneseed stocks ordered destroyed.
It was only after this display of ruthlessness that the remaining primarchs consented to have their legions broken up into chapters. They could see that Guilleman would go to any length to see his plans implemented.
The story might have ended there, but the Adpetus Mechanicus of Mars have always followed their own agenda. Guilleman ordered all geneseed stocks on mars moved to terra, in order to limit the power of the mechanicus, and commanded any remaining female geneseed destroyed. Under the threat of war, the Fabricator General handed over the remaining stocks of male geneseed, but sealed sealed away the stocks of female geneseed instead of destroying them, into endless vaults of the red planet.
Ten millenia later, The Adeptus Mechanicus of Mars has determined that the Imperium is too weak to survive, and has begun a military build up that will culminate in the destruction of the Adeptus of Terra.
As the determined date approaches, the vaults of mars have been unsealed, and the geneseed of the lost legions is being used, in secret, to create genetically modified warriors that can match the Adeptus Astartes in the coming war.
The Valkyries of the Omnissiah are a shadow force that answer only to the Fabricator General of Mars. Only those highest in the Machine Cult hierarchy even know of it's existence. It's deployment is always preceded by a communications blockout that masks their involvement and limits the possibility of exposure. Nevertheless, rumors have circulated from time to time, and the fear of their discovery prematurely triggering the inevitable war between mars and terra means that they are deployed only under the most dire of circumstances.
A few technical notes:
Their Mark XI power armor utilizes newer materials developed from STC fragments unearthed in the catecombs beneath Diab. Consequently the armor is thinner and lighter then bulky ceremite plates, but provides nearly identicle ballistic and energy wepaon protection.
Female Space Marines have a muscle tissue vastly different then that of a normal astartes. During the development of geneseed, it was found that the simultaneous muscle twitch fiber that had been developed would deteriorate when exposed to the hormone balance in a male astartes, so that part of the project was abandoned, and male astartes were modified to have larger muscles instead. The simultaneous twitch fibers, however, could be sustained in a female astartes hormone balance, and their geneseed still contains this powerful modification. Subsequently, female astartes have comparable strength to their male counterparts, but do not require a large musclebound physique.
Also note that, while Valkyries are much taller then the average human female, they are shorter then their male astartes counterparts, with a much slimmer build.
I'm pretty meh on the gun. The barrel bit seems too wide for the rest of it.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Are you wounded?
Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
Same here. Compared to your other guns it quite bland. But everything else looks nice. Love the staff weapong, where is it from ?Originally Posted by Bellum_Gerreo
think it would make an excellent nomad eldar staff :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

I thinnk all of you have a good point. I took the model back out and re-evaluated some things, and I think you'll like the result.
First, I added more detail to the gun, including a rail underneath that's hard to see in the pics but looks really good.
Second, I added a scroll to her back, which contains the names of every marine her company has killed.
Third, I added decorations to her power pack, the blades forming a pattern over her head similar to the way a iron halo looks.
Lastly, I added a banner to her weapon, which I always wanted to be a staff rather than a spear, and this clears that up nicely.
Let me know what you think. ^_^

Like the others have said i dont really like the barrel. Also the things on the jump pack look a little weird. Other than that good model and I am also following your progress on adeptus.
I'd agree with the comments so far, but feel free to prove us wrong by doing a really kickass paint job and making us eat our words
im disapointed, you didnt spend more money on plasma pistols
but other than that it looks really good, but im not to fond of the banner, i liked it better as a spear to thrust to the marines
"CHARGE!!!*thruting the spear forward*, Oh, sorry i didnt see you there, hehe"
