First up are the Terminators - heavily armed and armoured genetic super soldiers of the Word Bearers legion. They start off good, but in the back story of the game they turn bad and repaint their armour red.
There's not much to say about the paint job for these guys. They were quite fiddly to keep neat with the different elements, but I used a pretty simple choice of colours and toned down the highlights to keep my speed up.
In addition to this 5, I've continued working on my smaller regular ones, just another 3.
I used the Micro Sol / Micro Set combination on their transfers - I've had a frustrating time attempting to use these in the past but it made these much easier to apply.
So this should be 40 points for this week. Time to pick up the pace for the last month! Definitely need to work on my Bolt Action US army so hopefully a reasonable points dump for next week.
All right - more sci-fi goodness! Well done Sean. The "Betrayal at Calth" game has been a great jolt to the 30k scene, and it's neat to see more Marines heading to the table. The Word Bearers make excellent bad guys (or, as I prefer to call them, "good guys"), which means they make for excellent figures all around on the gaming table. I like your plan of leaving some of the figures in the earlier colours so they can play in Great Crusade settings or as Loyalists in the Horus Heresy. The colours used here are excellent, and I can sympathize with your challenges using the decals. While products like Micro Sol are quite amazing, it is frustrating that GW continues to make the decals for the marines - particularly the shoulder plates - just a shade too large, requiring all sorts of chemical devilry just to get the damn things set...
So 40 points for you! And we look forward to your Bolt Action US army stuff and the points dump next week.
