Thread: So I was digging in the dead and soon to be buried threads...

  1. #1

    Default So I was digging in the dead and soon to be buried threads...

    ...and I saw the Vostroyan project.

    Since I am having such a hard time getting going on my "First Founding Chapters" Display, I was wondering if anyone wanted to do something like this for the display.

    Let me know if you will volunteer to paint a single Original Chapter Space Marine in their Pre-heresy original colors, and if you have or need a "cookie cutter" figure with which to do so.

    We can keep it simple:

    Username -- Have/Need -- Preferred Chapter Name

    {example}
    JesterzUSMC -- HAVE -- Iron Warriors or Lunar Wolves

    We will keep this very simple.

    • No fancy NMM or SENMM (except for 2nd/9th Legion)
    • No conversions, stick with stock figure
    • No Sculpting.
    • Freehand or transfers OKAY, but MUST be in ORIGINAL Chapter Symbol (not current style, i.e. Rogue Trader era)
    • I only need 19 or less volunteers.


    So let me know if ya'll are interested and we can motivate each other to do this.
    Maybe we can even auction it off for a Charity or something.

    Also some ideas for a worthy and appropriate charity?

    Volunteer list:

    • Torn blue sky -- NEED -- Night Lords
    • Tercha -- Have -- Ultramarines
    • Chrome -- NEED -- Thousand Sons
    • Dustin09 -- NEED -- Space Wolves
    • Yuggoth -- NEED -- Emporer's Children
    • Meph -- NEED -- Death Guard
    • JesterzUSMC -- Have -- Dark Angels
    • MightyChad -- Have -- Blood Angels
    • Mourner -- NEED -- Iron Warriors
    • Marshal Angman -- Have -- White Scars
    • adam_dup -- NEED -- Imperial Fists
    • Meph -- Have -- Raven Guard
    • JesterzUSMC -- Have -- Iron Hands
    • Shellshock -- Have -- World Eaters
    • cleen X -- Have -- Lunar Wolves
    • MightyChad -- Have -- Word Bearers
    • Marshal Angman -- Have -- Salamanders
    • Khavor -- Have -- Alpha Legion
    • mattsterbenz -- NEED -- (2nd) NMM - Missing Chapter
    • crazyboyae1 -- NEED -- (9th) NMM - Missing Chapter


    Please don't jump to painting until everyone is set and I give the go ahead. Some of these Chapters I would like to add something to their finished look.
    Bases need to be unflocked, plain Black.

    I know the "New" versions of pre-heresy armor are much more ornate, and that rogue trader era were Mark VI? and earlier, but for the sake of simplicity, let's keep the figurees CC, and the colors and symbols RT.
    And by current cc you aren't referring to the AoBR ones right?!
    I am planning on making this with the 4th(?) edition "Battalion" sets, where they are all in EXACTLY the same pose, and the only difference between bolter and flamer, is a weapon swap.

    also, IF, and that is a BIG IF, ...IF this gets completely out of hand, we can expand to do the Index Astartes Poster instead.
    In which case we'd be doing the "Modern" versions of the Chapters.

    And I have an idea for the 2 "missing/deleted" Chapters. If someone that is superior at NMM, or better yet, SENMM (Chrome) I think that would be a sweet change of pace.

    AOBR is the assault on black reach 5th ed of 40k. Some nice figure's for the price.

    http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...tCatGameStyle=

    The marines in it are not all the same however, there is a lot of difference between each model.

    Right...NOT the beaky's, (though I will take those off your hands...LOL.)

    The Blacklining outlines the two parts.
    The body is one, the two hands and weapon are the other part.
    These are the ones I want to do. Easy, simple, and uniformity.

    Gotchya! Not sure if I have any of those laying about, Chapters are different in appearence though, like Dark Angels, Emperors children , Space Wolves and Salamanders for example. I do have a couple of old school Blood Claws kicking about if that'll do. Same helmets and what not.

    I can send out all the CC marines if people don't have them. I have almost enough to do the Poster in 3D!
    And the RT color scheme is what I was wanting to do.
    DA = Black, SW = Gray(not blue), How are the Salamanders different?

    Actually, this sounds like great fun! I'd love to make a space wolf (duh) for the project.

    Btw, heresy-era salamanders I think just had a wee bit darker green armour and their hands were painted black in addition to the "standard" modern cheme

    So, no pelt or ccw/bp or no-helm for the wolf? XD

    as for you jesterz, in best mexican sloppie joes voice, "no more saaaaalamadas foor yu" luna wolves try and man you up a bit after the french maid thread (lol)

    tbs imperial fists, dont ask, dont know, it ust popped in there

    I would be willing to paint one up! but I would need a picture of the Pre-heresy original colors of whatever chapter you need me to paint up. I've been wanting to paint up a space wolf lately.

    just pre-heresy color, rogue trader era chapter symbol, and stick with the plain cookie cutter space marine pictured in post #8.
    So do I add you to the list?

    Personally I think it's a shame youre banning sculpting/conversions, it'd be great to see them all as close to these as possible

    @Tommie - Great looking, but not one of the cookie cutters. Did you want to join the list and do one as well?

    Alright! Dustin09 -- Have/need? -- Space wolves?
    And we ( I ) will post and/or send pictures to all participants for pre-heresy chapter references once we are ready to go.

    @Marshal - Thanks for the Research, we aren't to that point yet, but there it is. The Iron Hands haven't changed from pre-heresy. Neither have the Imperial Fists, Ultra Marines, Blood Angels, or most of the loyal ones at any rate. If this goes well, I would LOVE to have another group project that allows for the Legionnes added "flavor". But baby steps. This is more of a static 3D analysis, like a post-it from the history of the imperium and what-not.
    --------------------------------------------------

    @ any other volunteers:
    Please add you name as indicated in the first post if you'd like to help.
    It makes it much easier to gather the necessary info out of the chatter that inevitably clutters an interesting thread

    ALSO!
    I would REALLY like someone that is good with NMM and/or SENMM to Volunteer to do two for the "missing" chapters.
    PMs are acceptable.
