As I continue through these IG painting projects, I realize that I will probably start doing some more "building" before they're all completed. In the interest of keeping things interesting I think I will do one unit/squad at a time, bouncing back and forth between different armies. Not sure if it will work but I thought I would share a few of the ideas that are brewing in the ol' noggin'
- SPACE MARINES: I did some a long time ago but this new army has a very specific vision. They will be called The Liberators. Yes, there is already a chapter by that name but oh well, bear with me. Inspired by the WW2 Liberator bomber, these marines will be down and dirty marines, painted in OD and bearing lots of character. The chapter symbol will be an eagle head and the Chapter banner will be a variation on the classic Japanese flag but with the colors of the American flag. These guys will be a very "gung ho" "can do" kind of group, very "John Wayne". The challenge for me here will be the composition of the models, using unique poses and customizing whenever possible.
- ALBINO ORKS: Still in the conceptual stages, it may have already been done. I am thinking Orks painted from a shade of light pink up to pure white, pink snouts and red, beady eyes.
- TYRANIDS: I want to have a crack at building a 'Nid army using the color scheme made popular by Simon Egan. Below is a pic for reference...
So that's it for now. Do you guys have any cool ideas for future projects? Just brainstorming? Share with the group...
The war goes on,
