Awesome. So Awesome.


I arrived home yesterday to find my copy of Project Pandora: Grim Cargo! In my haste to tear open it's contents and finally grasp the awesomeness within, I didn't really snap any unboxing shots, but here are some links to some great unboxing reviews that I watched in anticipation of my delivery:
I'm going to finish off my Silver Eagles - I've got the last five of them base coated and washed (made an efficient production line of the process as well!), so just the last coat and final highlight to do. I'm still undecided on what colour scheme I want for the Corporation and Veer-myn, but finishing off the Silver Eagles will give me some time to think on it.
I'll also be reading through the rulebook during my commutes to and from work, and probably sneaking a few reading sessions during the day too.

I'll post a short unboxing review soon - once I've spent a bit more time checking out the contents in more detail!

Silver Eagle Combat Squad

Silver Eagle Combat Squad (Click to Enlarge)
I finished off the other three Silver Eagles last night, and the Combat Squad is lookin mean. The other five marines are assembled and undercoated, ready for some paint tonight to round off the Tactical Squad.
Oh, I’m waiting on a delivery on some Back-to-Base-ix Industrial bases, to complete the Space Ship Interior aesthetic I’m going for.

Project Pandora: Grim Cargo should be arriving in the mail any day now and my excitement is tangible! Painting up these marines have achieved my goal of stemming my excitement somewhat, and also helped me get back into a painting groove.

Hopefully PP:GC will arrive before my next post!

Silver Eagle Sergeant

I made this guy from my 'box-o-marine' parts, so he's a mish-mash of bits - I think his bolter arm is from the Dark Angel Veteran sprue, his power fist is from the Space Wolves Marine sprue, his backpack is from the AoBR Sergeant... no idea where the head came from though.

I went for a bit more of a dynamic pose, which stands out amongst the rest of the AoBR marines I'm painting up for the squad. I got some good work done on the rest of the marines too, but I'll just post photos when I've finished a Combat Squad, then the full Tactical Squad.

Silver Eagle Complete

Here’s a shot of my completed Silver Eagle Space Marine, with the highlighting all done. I’m quite happy with the colour scheme, and I’ve got another 4 marines (including a Sergeant) base coated, washed, and ready for their final coat.

Hopefully I can knock out the Sergeant tonight, and make some progress on the rest of the Combat Squad.

Stay tuned, more Silver Eagles to come!
