Corporation Sergeant

After finishing off five of the regular Corporation Marines, I thought I'd reward myself and paint up the Sergeant. His pose definitely makes him stand out from the other marines, and his pistol and power fist are pretty cool too. I decided to stay consistent with the rest of 'hot' colour scheme and opt for a 'heated glow' on his power fist.

Alright, more Corporation troopers to paint! Stay tuned!

Corporation Test Scheme

So this is what I managed to come up with last night, after a few tweaks. I initially had more red - on the shoulders and gloves, but thought to tone it down a little. The paint is a little wet in places, and one of the photos is a little blurrier than I'd like, but I was keen on getting some photos up today!
Overall I'm pretty happy with the colour scheme, and plan on batch painting the rest of the squad tonight.

It's just occurred to me that I'll need to come up with a name for my Corporation as well, and maybe a little fluff too!

Corporation and Veer-myn Undercoated

It's been rainy in Sydney for the past couple of days (over a long weekend too - boo!), but I managed to sneak outside during a dry spell yesterday evening and get all my undercoating done!

Since I undercoated them grey, these WIP photos don't really look any different to the assembly shots... but I assure you they're primed and ready for the paintbrush!

Veer-myn Assembled

Looking at the bits above, the set contains 8 Veer-myn Night Crawlers (2 variants), 1 Veer-myn Exterminator (with Chem Thrower special weapon) and 1 Veer-myn Master (Master Reekish).

It's fairly straight forward assembling the set. There is a corresponding body, head, arms and tails for each of the two Night Crawler variants - if you put the wrong head onto the wrong body, then it just doesn't fit right (same with the arms and tails). The two special characters just use the leftover parts, and there's a choice about which head you give to the Master and Exterminator.

Pretty rainy this weekend, so I might have to wait another time before getting an undercoat on them!

Corporation Assembled

In the above shot, we see the contents of the Corporation set. The left arms (gun supporting arms) are in the bag on the top left, and the bag on the right contains the parts to make the Corporation Sergeant (Sergeant Cruise).
The sprue on the left side has 3 special weapons (which don't have any impact in Project Pandora) and the 3 sprues on the bottom are for the heads.

The only thing to note about assembling these marines are the arms. There are 3 different variants of right arms, and 3 variants of left arms. Only one set of right arms matches to a corresponding set of left arms. Once you've sorted that out, it's fairly straight forward.

Looking at the completed result, you're able to make a nice variation of troops, and the Sergeant definitely looks unique amongst them. There is a spare head to use with the Sergeant as well, and I didn't fancy using the special weapon options for my marines.

That didn't take too long, so now it's onto the Veer-myn!

Silver Eagle Tactical Squad Complete

Silver Eagle Tactical Squad: click to enlarge
Well, what a fantastic little side-project! I think they turned out great, and I'm even considering painting up more Space Marines to make a small Silver Eagle army. That's probably just another hobbying pipe-dream that I'll never get around too, but at least I've got a tactical squad to build up from.
Oh, I touched up the white shoulders on my Sergeant (after some helpful forum feedback), and my buddy gave me a nice photo background that I've started using.
Still waiting on those bases, so I guess when they come around I'll finish these guys off and take another happy snap.

Anyways, now that this is done, I'm free to start on the contents of Project Pandora! Stay tuned!
