Well, there it is. I now have all of my materials for my Imperial Fists army! Now all it needs is adhesive, paint, and time....precious time.
Today I got all my tactical squads chopped and shopped, that's twenty SM's in total, the remainder I have to paint for the force. I got a few dynamic poses in there, as I hate the standard SM hugging a bolter to his chest. Dammit! Extend that bad boy and shove it down a xenos/traitors throat! True Grit, man! True Grit!
I broke from my usual policy of "no assembly prior to painting" too. I put the torso on the legs of all my fellas, kinda emulating how the AoBR SM are built. I managed it well when painting the AoBR set and now I'm giving it a try with my troop box marines.
'til later, I love yellow paint!
