hillshire - Space Marine Vindicator 6/23 - Completed 7/10
« on: June 23, 2014, 05:01:01 PM »
I started this on Saturday. Bought the model last Wednesday. Looking at expanding my Grey Knight army with Space Marine allies. I'm still thinking about their background but at this point I'm thinking they're a psyker heavy successor chapter of the Ultramarines.

So the first pic is from earlier in the day on Sunday and the other is from the afternoon. I added some .22 shells for artillery shells reclaimed by the crew.

I got the interior done. My backstory is progressing but not worth sharing yet.

Thanks!

The key motif is taking shape as an element of the Rampant Lion's back story. I added this little scene to the side.

Is the eagle giving the lion the key or taking it away?

Is the lion giving the eagle the key or taking it away?

At this point, I don't really want to decide. I want to see what happens during game play to gain insight into their character. Maybe that will inform the backstory.

Still got a lot of detail work to do but it's very hard while traveling and enjoying the family reunion. I'll do what I can.

Well, there are still details I want to add but it's been very hard getting time at the cabin with so much family around. I'm concerned I'll miss the deadline! So here's my Vindicator as it currently stands:
