Send in the (Space) Marines
As the Terminators are original versions, and I'll only be needing a squad or so of marines I thought I'd plump for some old beaky style Space Marines. One for nostalgia reasons and two because they just look great. A fact backed up by my young son who looked through them when they came in and declared "I want to paint them." There at time's to be a giving father and times when you have to put yourself first. This was one of those latter occasions and a swift "No, they're mine" was replied! My 9 year old son shouldn't be building a Rogue Trader era Space Marine army. His pocket money won't stretch that far - Hell, mine doesn't!
ZombieSmith's lovely Quar range. I wonder if the sculptor did this on purpose or if it was a subconscious influence? On my wish list anyway, and also gives me the excuse to post the nice Quar animation...
