Ok guys, I've been talking about this for a while & now I'm almost in a position to start it.
The idea to do this came from the pre-heresy White Scar I'm doing for the group project.
Anyway I loved the imagery, & have decided to do a contemporary army. I intend to take my time on this army & make sure every marine is individual with at least some level of conversion work going on on each marine & his bike if he has one. Below are some of the images that I've used for inspiration.
Looking at these it's clear that they are quite feral, wearing furs, having teeth as trophies as well as horses tails/skulls. As well as having lots of hair, or bald, or top knots, as well as braids & moustaches. The Space Wolf parts obviously lend themselves nicely to the White scars, though I don't intend these guys to be as heavily 'feral' as the wolves, so I intend to interspace the Wolves parts with regular marines. I also want to include plenty of free hand, you can see the kind of thing im looking to do, as well as my ideas for colours below
I'm planning to have the brotherhood on every marine, and varying the squad markings to echo what the BA's do with theirs.
I also want the P. Weapons to be scimitars & lances for some of the bike mounted guys. I've been looking for a good source of these, and I like the weapons on the newest howling banshees.
I have other ideas as well, but I'll let you guys digest that lot so far. Tell me what you think of the colour scheme, & the other ideas as well.
