I was having no end of troubles with my photography equipment today and I’m still not really sure what was going on.

It looked like there was a film or something over the front of my lens – or there was too much light or some such, but with good olde photoshop I managed to get  something workable!

I’ve been trying to tie up smaller, loose ends before the end of the year. This particular unit of Space Marines was one of them! I believe they are from a starter box-set circa 1993. Originally given to my husband, by his eldest brother, when he was a young lad himself. They got put into our legendary bits box and I reclaimed them for my Space Marine Battle Company when I only had a tactical squad slot left!

They were also a great few models to use to get the painting bug back – they’re old so I wouldn’t feel guilty if I ‘messed up’ – I’m actually pretty pleased with how they turned out and are some of the better models I have done to date.

It’s great to see some improvement in my painting skills.

I’m working on my 5 man Primaris Squad at the moment, so when they’re done I shall share a picture of them too and hope I don’t have the same issues with the camera as I did with these ones.

This is the unedited image, if anyone can point out the obvious as to what I’ve done wrong, please let me know!?

 

  1. These are great. I also have some second hand Oldhammer Marines… Not sure what to do with them. I feel like I should repainted the them (I think they’re ate dark angels). Maybe I’ll dig them out and let Twitter decide. Glad you got around to painting these… What’s next? 😊

    1. You should so paint them up again and give them a new lease of life, it’s the very least they deserve!
      I am currently working on a 5 man squad of Primaris Marines. They’re so very different to these guys, but a lot of fun.
