Spayce Murh-reens!

Last night, I was bored, browsing, and just a bit impulsive. The end result is that I picked up a number of Primaris Marines kits from Amazon. Yeah, a pandemic is the perfect time to get back into a very social game, right? I tossed the majority of my WH40K stuff years ago, and damned if I don’t have regrets.

But, since they made bigger Space Marines and the older ones are sort of obsolete, I guess I can get over it. While I wait for my models to arrive, I have to decide on a color scheme. So...help me decide!

You might have noticed there was no red or yellow armor.

Damn right.

Played around more and I’m very partial to this...

Sooooo...does this mean you’re also going to post a lineart version so we can all join in the fun?

I am waiting on...everything to arrive, and I’m completely out of the loop on what Marines can play now. I still have a few select pieces I saved from my big purge, and I have to dig those out. I’m not even entirely sure what I still have.

What I have arriving this week, though, is...
Marine codex
Know No Fear set
Aggressors - two sets

I think I still have my Centurion sprues - at least I hope I do, since they seem viable nowadays.

Edit: I dug out what I saved:
One customized, unpainted Master of the Forge

Ten Grey Knight Terminators

Five Dark Angels Terminators

Five vanilla Storm Shield/Thunderhammer Terminators

Two Ironclad Dreadnoughts

One Dreadnought with lascannons/missle launcher

Really wish I saved those Centurions...

Whoo-boy. I just preordered the new starter set. I also bought a copy of Dark Imperium.
 
I like your grey one with the tan pouches, though I feel like it could really use a slash of colour somewhere on it.

I like the new models GW has been... but my friends and I are now firmly stuck in the past playing 6th edition lol. We have a staggering amount of miniatures collected over the past 2 decades and we refuse to buy more (even if they are cool).

I think I’m going with that color scheme. Gray with silver trim. I saw a tutorial on blending metallic paints that produced a nice effect, and I’m going to try to replicate that.

Given that I’m acquiring a lot of Death Guard miniatures with the sets I’ve bought, I think I might pick up a few more and their Codex to have two armies. I don’t know if I’ll keep the Nexrons from the 9th edition kit. I might try to trade them since I don’t use ebay.
