Today Little Max and I did a bit of painting, he on his scouts and me on my tactical marine test mini. We were working out the green shoulder pad edging and how to pick out the other details. He did mention that the miniature in real life seems much lighter than it does in the photos so hopefully when I reshoot him once he's finished the colours will seem better. But I really like the combination of the green with the blue. It looks really cool.
So I had planned to put up some pictures of my Scouties but unfortunately the internet isn't allowing me to upload them but hopefully I can do it at uni in a few days. Little Max and I are building and painting our 1000pt Armies with a deadline of 1st of February. Since I am hopefully going away for half of January and Little Max also has some commitments this should be enough time for us to complete our armies. Since this is the case I plan to build and paint around 500pts extra but if this isn't completed then no big problem.
So in the mean time here is my 1000pt Army List for the Ultramarines.
135pts - Space Marine Chaplain in Terminator Armour and Melta Bombs
200pts - 5 man Terminator Assault Squad with Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields
75pts - 5 man Scout Squad: 3 Shotguns and 2 with Pistols and Close Combat Weapons
50pts - Land Speeder Storm
170pts - 10 man Tactical Squad
90pts - 5 man Tactical Squad
150pts - 5 man Devastator Squad with 4 Multi-meltas
40pts - Razorback
40pts - Razorback
So those of you astute enough will notice this list is only 950pts in total and leaves me with 50pts to play with. So any recommendations for what to do with those 50pts?
So far I'm toying with the ideas of:
Another terminator and 10pts on special and heavy weapons in the ten man tactical squad.
Power fist for the scout squad, power weapon for the tactical squad and special and heavy weapons.
An upgrade to 1 of the Razorback weapons and take the cheaper/free special and heavy weapons.
So any other ideas? Any jump out as the best idea?
Once the internet decides to work properly I'll put up my Scouts.
Tweaking list as to comments
