Ancient Tactical Marine

Maybe the term ancient is a little far fetch, but he is certainly an oldie! He and the rest of his squad had been thrown into the bits box way back when I first started my Space Marine Chapter – my husband must have thrown them in at some point – and I recently picked them up to get back into painting again; not wanting to ‘ruin’ my newer models as I’ve not been active in the painting hobby for a while.

They stem from the time ‘I had a Space Marine problem’ a turn of phrase that has since been borrowed by others. It was a problem I once had though and as soon as people from the old Bury & Bolton Wargaming Club stated ‘I have some Space Mariens for sale’ my ears would burn and I’d snap them up; which explains why I have four Vindicators and several tired looking tanks & Dreadnoughts

Now that my Company has enough models, I don’t suffer from this problem in the same way (Although, it’s probably a good idea if I no longer go to any gaming groups!)

This is how the guy ended up looking!

I am pretty pleased with how he turned out, especially seeing as I have put a base coat of red already on them (And a lot of my other miniatures, oh no!) that had gone off and split and in my n00bishness, I didn’t realise!

I’ll share an updated picture of him and the rest of his Squad when they’re done.
