Well guys, one of my prop goals has been reached today. I'm getting one of Thorssoli's Bolters. A long time I've wanted one. I've enjoyed 40K for years and years. I've two armies, Ultramarines and Orks. My son an Eldar army.
So, now with a gen-u-ine Bolter on the way, I must make an outfit to go with it.
Full on Power Armor just isn't going to happen. Not any time soon.
So, a Scout Marine it is. I've the minatures to look at, but I'm trying to find some good reference material to make the body armor. I did a search on Google, but mainly have more pics of the mini's. Are there any pictures, drawings of the Scout Marines?
Man, that would help to show as much detail as possible. Failing that, I'll try my best looking at the mins.
Then to decide which Chapter to make.
I don't think I'll make Ultramarines, too much blue in 1/1.
Thought about Dark Angels, cool colors.
And the Space Wolves really intrigue me too.The Norse imagery, that could be alot of fun!
I plan to make the Bolter in Black and Boltgun Metal, rather than a specific Chapter color. A bit more flexibility I think.
Any suggestions guys?
Appreciate any and all thoughts!
