Goatboy here again and sometimes I paint good guy stuff for myself. Today I want to show off my brand new Indomitus Marines!
Heck the only truly counts-as thing with this army is I went with my own scheme. About 2 years ago I threw together a Blood Angel and Custodes list for a local event (Dallas Open GT – lets hope we all can go to it next year). I didn’t want to go with the normal all Red Blood Angels so I went with a red armed and black body scheme that was easy to paint. That is the trick for players like me – figure out a simple enough scheme your child addled brain can remember. I paint a lot of black armies for clients – so just going with that style mixed with my love of Red created a very simple scheme. I have tweaked a bit for my current Marine build – but it is still basically the same thing. With that – let’s just show off the current Marines I have painted for my own personal army – all within the world of Indomitus.
I really like these bikes. There is something just weird and beefy about them. I am hoping we can see units of 5 as they would really fit into my current – mean army scheme I want to play. This was also the last unit I used a black wash (Dark Tone from Army painter). I forgot which one I did for the Assault Intercessors (went with Army Painter Strong Tone) but found the new tone to be a lot more exciting. I got 6 more of these guys and will most likely make one have a Thunder Hammer to give me the perfect assassin unit.
I just finished the last 5 of these guys. I know they can’t have a Thunder Hammer… yet. I just really like how these models seem to fit together well – the shape and movement is just a nice set of design to look at.
I normally hate huge banners as I find them a bit crazy to think about in a universe fully of Daemons and other crazy things. Still I do like this model as he has a nice overall design that while the banner is just a bit much – the model itself looks cool. Makes me think they could come out with a set of robed guys to make some really sweet Dark Angels out of.
I used some of the new Necron glow stuff on the gun – which is pretty neat. I basically did the same thing mixing some paint together – but this is all in a bottle so ready to go. Are we tired of Lt’s yet?
Will see if this storm shield shows up for all Marines.
I like this Chaplain a lot. There is something more – I don’t know characterful with him versus the other Robed skeleton man.
I like these models even though the rules are kind of annoying. If I could throw them into a Rhino it would be a fun time.
This was the model that started the initial paint – I wanted to swap his head and go from there. This guy will be everyone’s Emperor’s champion.
These guy are pretty neat – haven’t found them useful for my army but I like the model.
I plan on finishing up more Assault Intercessors, some converted Intercessors out of Assault Intercessors, and figuring out how to make a unique looking Khan that fits the armies esthetic. We’ll see.
And They Shall Know No Fear!
