Project: Little Green Men
The battle company continues to grow. I actually haven’t bought anything since…. The repulsor? The Inceptors? I do have lots left to assemble though, including a flyer, knight, bikes, attack bike, and another speeder. I do need to buy Hellblasters for the 10th squad but there’s plenty of sales coming up for that!
I also will be painting up some extra troopers to allow me to substitute weapons in the razorback squads (1-3) BUT
That’s almost an entire battle company of Dark Angels! Organized how I figure they’d be post-Primaris. I may add another squad of intercessors as I like the models quite a bit and I even think they’ll be useful on the table. The downside is that would require another repulsor and I do NOT like building repulsor tanks. They are great on the tabletop but they are a hobbyists nightmare.
Two squads completely or near completely done. 1st and 2nd need a good bit of touching up. Vehicles are in various states of completion (I didn’t realize the one rhino was practically done, that will probably get finished very soon) then… well I need to figure out what I want to do. Lieutenants are soon, but I want to wait until the DA Primaris LT comes out and get all three at once. Bikes, Assault Marines, Inceptors and the Speeder in the back are all high priority. Most likely I will do the Assault marines (not pictured are 4 more with wings that I left in pieces for ease of painting) and then Inceptors (which may or may not get changed for the plasma guns. Dark angels and all). Then Bikes, then the rest of the tacs. Vehicles and characters will get mixed in as well.
I’d like to get all this done by April. The goal is finish a unit per week. This week I’m finishing 3rd squad, just some edge highlights to do. Next week I’ll take on the assault marines with wings, followed by the ones without. Then I’ll do the Lieutenants, and probably the Techmarine that’s staring at me. Then vehicle finishing (the three rhino variants that aren’t done) and maybe a character. So by the end of the year there should be 10 fully painted assault marines, 5 with wings stolen from the lesser angels chapter, 3 Lieutenants, maybe a techmarine, all the rhino type vehicles,
Sounds like a schedule. Let’s see how it goes! I’ll try to update this weekly to show you my progress.
