One of my (2007) Christmas presents was a box of Space Marine Veterans.
…and here they are out of the box in their raw metal state.
It is my intention to paint them up as Grey Knights. I am attempting to paint a Grey Knights force which goes beyond the listings in the DaemonHunters Codex. What I am trying to do is to create a Grey Knights force (using the Space Marine Codex) and then using a DaemonHunters force as allies.
According to the Games Workshop website, a variety of Space Marines stuff will be on sale at the UK GamesDay on the 14th September including the new Drop Pod.
Dropping from orbit, the brand new pre-release Space Marines will be in extremely limited supply. That said, we’ll be taking 2000 brand new plastic Drop Pods – an amazing 89-piece plastic kit – not to mention the all-new Thunderfire Cannon and the all-important Codex: Space Marines.
We’ll also be taking supplies of the new Sternguard and Vanguard Veterans, the mighty all-plastic Land Raider Redeemer / Crusader, as well as the many new Special Characters including Captain Sicarius of the Ultramarines and the Chapter Master of the Crimson Fists, Pedro Kantor.
