With the new Warhammer 40k – Imperium magazine out, I am using it as an excuse to expand my budding Adeptus Mechanicus collection and to start two new ones, both the Necrons and Primaris space marines.
I racked my brains to decide which chapter to paint my new ‘uber’ marines before I realised that I can do them all!
Upon waking from his 10,000 year lie-in, Roboute Guilliman went on crusade with his shiny new space marines of the founding chapters, known as the ‘Unnumbered Sons’ or ‘Greyshields’. What if the Unnumbered Sons were kept on as an inter-chapter force to help the thousands of chapters to understand and cooperate with each other? This would allow me to paint any and all of the chapters!
With this in mind I started with the first two models I had at my disposal..
Chapter Master Adulphus Heller of my homebrew chapter, the ‘Iron Eagles’ space marines. He is a stern and uncompromising tactician who braved the Rubicon to ascend to become a Primaris marine and seconded himself to the Greyshields to better learn the ways of the other chapters astartes.
Lieutenant Tolmeres Dadrist of the Black Templars space marines. He is a bellicose and hot-headed warrior who leads from the front and is always to be found in the thickest fighting.
I am particularly happy with the finish on my Black Templar marine as I feel I’m getting the hang of using oils and am really happy with the Black armour in particular. With the next couple of marines out in a few weeks I look forward to deciding which chapter liveries to try my hand at next!
