|Feel the love...more lads from the 12th Legion|
My second submission is yet more Space Marines from Games Workshop's "Horus Heresy" setting. As with my first submission, these are 30k Marines from the 12th Legion, the cute, cuddly and progressive chaps known as the "World Eaters". Whether your world is run by a deeply flawed totalitarian or exists as a fluffy, enlightened sunny-ways democracy, the World Eaters will appear in orbit and render the whole thing down to particles without pausing too long to consider "why". In this, they were ideal tools for the Emperor's so-called "Great Crusade", and even more useful to the Warmaster Horus when he launched his rebellion.

Wrecking everything in sight is a lot of work, even in the far future. The troops assembled here should make an important contribution to those efforts thanks to their heavy armour and/or absurdly large guns.
|The unit Sergeant has a fancy sword, and the thing up top is supposed to be a grenade launcher, but perhaps is some kind of future go-pro system so Angron can have a record of any carnage these chaps are involved with|
|I need to find a way to make these power swords look fancier, but he'll do|
|I quite like the double-drum ammo clips on the so-called "combi bolters" and the chap pointing looks like he means business...|
|If you carried a big flame-thrower like this fellow, and your job is wrecking sh!t, why you would be on top of the world, so I did this fellow up to look like he's giving a fist bump - "fire FTW!"|

|The 30k setting is about overkill - why shoot just one big science fiction gun at something, when you could shoot five of them at something?|

Up next? I'm hoping to keep in the same setting, but switch scales. And also, thanks to Jamie, I am trying to figure out some character or vehicle for this force to be named or otherwise known as "Charmington" - so stay tuned for more on that...
More gritty and battle scarred troopers eh Greg? I love the way you paint these and really must try a similar look for something of my own at some point. This must be quite a sizeable force now and I'd really like to see a shot of everything together at some point.
50 points for your tally sir!
PS. Was "your world is run by a deeply flawed totalitarian or exists as a fluffy, enlightened sunny-ways democracy" a reference to recent political events in the US or is that just me?
