Then I started looking at these:
Then this arrived! The 3 squad bundle of MkII Legion Crusade Armour Marines, the 3 Deimos Pattern Rhino Bundle, and 3 sets of Death Guard Legion Shoulder Pads!
I quickly set about painting a test model, which I have to say, came out very well! Skull White basecoat, Brazen Brass and Knarloc Green for the shoulder pads, and the other colours are self explanatory. Metals and bronzes' were washed with Badab Black, and the rest of the model was washed with Gryphonne Sepia. Some small dabs of Adeptus Battlegrey for the chipped armour effect finished it off nicely. I think I might add some grey weathering powders around the feet to dirty it up a bit as well.
I struggled to make the shoulder pad iconography pop here. The black detail is to small to highlight, but I gave it a go!
I've got as far as this with the Legionnaires assembly:
Also got 1 of the Rhinos built as well.
These minis are fantastic, i'm so glad I gave into my impulse and bought this lot! I've nearly finished a 1,850pt list for these guys which i'll post up soon.
