Scouts are done!

So much left to do, but I think I'm at the half way point.

12 Marines
7 Scouts
2 Ironclad Dreads
1 Scout Biker
1 Terminator
1 Rhino
1 Razorback
1 Thunderfire Cannon & Techmarine
1 Land Raider

Yet to paint:
8 Marines
2 Scout Bikers
3 Attack Bikes
4 Terminators
1 Librarian
Objective Markers
Display Base
Explosion Markers / Wrecked Vehicles

Just wrapped up the four scouts and the scout biker.  Realized I didn't dust off the excess snow before taking pictures.  Now on to creating two more scout bikers and two more attack bikes.


Here's the first try at my attack bikes.  I'm doing two riders to represent the two wounds.  One rider with a multi-melta and another with regular weapons.

Sadly, I'm traveling again this week Monday through Thursday.  Adepticon is coming fast!

Scouts before a Travel Marathon

Unfortunately I'm about to head out for 8 days traveling for work (Vegas then San Jose)... suck.  Making progress on my scouts though.  I'm in love with the Vostroyan models and am incorporating them as scouts into my marine army.  By removing the bayonets, I figured the lasguns will make decent sniper rifles.  Here's a picture of my first three.

My set I'm currently working on will be the sarg (com link guy), a conversion of a missile launcher dude, and two other snipers. Just finished up the yellows and am working on the blues and silvers.

Also, I'm running three scout bikers.  By taking a lot of the chaos icon or spikes on the horse, the plastic marauder horsemen make excellent scout bikers.  I hacked up the top of a vostroyan and did a pretty poor job of greenstuff on the skirt.  Modified the lasgun into a bolter (to WYSIWYG the scout bike).  Have to make two more of these bad boys.  Here he is in progress:


More to follow when I'm back!
