Wargaming & miniature modeling meanderings
Oooowww...Nice plastics. Is that an old bolter pattern? Looking forward to what you do with these fellows. :)
Thanks! Yeah, that's one of Forge World's Umbra Pattern boltguns. I love them to bits and thought that it was a great way to show just how old some of these Chaos Space Marines are (or how good their looting skills have become ;))
Great to see you working on some marines again! They are looking nice thus far. I really like the crested helmet on the first marine. Also it must agree that the Umbra pattern boltguns are awesome. I am not sure I really like the bolt pistol on the first marine. The belt-fed pistols always looked wrong to me. How would he even load that pistol? It does not look like the pistol is designed like one of the typical belt-fed machine guns. I would be tempted to add a more traditional magazine on the pistol.Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing more.
Thanks for the comment, Adam! Glad you like them.Concerning the belt-fed bolt pistol, I'll admit that it's not something I had really thought about. I'll have a look into the issue and see what solution I come up with. Whatever happens, I'll most probably post up-to-date pictures just before I start painting.
Looking good! Nice to see the blog back :)
Thanks! And I'm glad to be back and already have people commenting again :D
