i figured this would be the best place to keep this thread instead of ST.

i just recently got back into it after years of not playing.

currently working on a sons of medusa space marine army. pumped to paint my chaplain in terminator armor w/ assault terminator squad. grabbed the iron hands bitz too for bionics on my tactical squad.

so,

anyone play?

Have observed a few games and am in the process of building a CSM, Word Bearers Legion, army. Just two 10 man CSM squads, 20 Cultists, 5 Terminators, and 1 Dark Apostle. Still building and painting.

I'll snap some shots and post em soon.

lols, but the pink and black! heh, i like the thousand sons too, the whole egyptian thing is neat and i found some awesome non warhammer space marine looking heads with an egyptian god theme.

those look nice! real crisp. probably as good of a job as i could ever do. i'm terrible with anything of an artistic nature, but i've had a lot of practice painting miniatures which has made me ok at it.

i'm working on a custom gaming table too - a simple 6x4 folding table, then i'm going to add a wooden frame on top of it with three felt-lined compartments on either side of the table - two for storage and the middle compartment for dice rolling.

Yeah I'm no master painter like Blue Table or Worthy Painting are but they'll pass the muster in a game. Better than just putting out unpainted ones.

Looking forward to seeing your Chaplain.

Used to play and have a Demonhunters army, and while I can't really afford nor do I have the time to get back into the game, I really do want to start painting miniatures again.

Played off and on since 2nd edition. Started with Eldar, currently running Space Marines. Haven't played 6th ed yet, was put off from the game by the introduction of flyers but from what i've read it seems they're handling them better.

GW's business practices as a whole are really detrimental to my involvement in the game plus it never really seemed to catch on in my area.

What chapter?

You know, greed makes the world go round.

I had to take a break from painting my chaplain.

Got a tactical squad in the mail today to work with.

Going with sons of medusa, but i think I'm going to paint them a more washed out pale green versus the usual striking scorpion green.

No specified chapter but they're dark angels green. I wanted to represent a more practical Space Marine force, guerilla tactics n' such. My predator annihilator has an open topped turret and some foliage camo to break up the outline a little, for example. A lot like the Raptors chapter if you've ever heard of them.

Looks nothing like that chaplain though, that is certainly something to be proud of there. I couldn't paint like that if my life dpended on it! Do you use GW paints and/or one of those big magnifying glass dealios?

I still need another tactical squad and assault squad and some dedicated transports. I'm thinking two rhinos.

I'll probably grab two dreadnoughts too as heavy support.

Most of my army is CC orientated.

Yeah I'm gonna buy more cultists cause they're so cheap point wise and another Dark Apostle because they grant Fearless. I'm also trying to make my army true to the fluff so I'm gonna invest in some lesser demons for summoning.

that's why i grabbed the iron hands bitz. to keep to the fluff. seeing how sons of medusa are a successor chapter, they'd naturally have a lot of bionics going on as they find flesh to be weak.

i need to buy a rule book still and a codex, ha. the joys of getting back into the hobby after 10 years away from it.

got a terminator assault squad in the mail today, i love the look of lightning claws. thinking of painting mine red to contrast with the green armor.

look forward to seeing some of your new miniatures!
