|Epic 30k Marines from the Imperial Fists, the VII Legion|
|Land Raiders, the go-to, all-purpose tanks of the Space Marines|
|Tactical marines near their trusty Rhino APCs - each APC can carry 10 marines, or two stands of infantry|
While today geeks like me explore this setting by playing with the 28mm figures from Forge World, it was, in fact, the 6mm-sized games "Adeptus Titanicus" and "Space Marine" which truly ignited interest, and gaming, in this "period".
|Another view of the tactical troops|
|Steadfast loyalty to the Emperor...|
|Sicaran tanks - the one in front seems a bit, shall we say, "insecure"...it's meant to be a major anti-tank weapon...right...|
|Another view of the Land Raiders - in addition to being really tough tanks, they also carry troops!|
Smokin' entry Greg! I always enjoy reading your love-hate relationship with GW as it closely mirrors my own feelings on the matter.
You did a spectacular job on these little models. I really like the tone of yellow you went with as they really pop on the bases. Speaking of which, what size bases did you go with for these lads? I always disliked the old dorky 'strip bases' that GW used. The rounded corners really appeal to my lizard brain somehow.
And I agree, the Ultramarines are a bunch of over-rated, blue-arsed showboaters. The only thing 'Ultra' about them is their marketing servitors... ;)
40 points it is! Well done...and remember: 'Horus for Hope'. :)
