40k project showcase: Imperial Fists Marines

Hi guys,

Wanted to showcase a couple of models I did a few months ago.

They were supposed to lead to my next army, but instead I got sidetracked and they stuck at 2 models.

I have a lot of heart for these guys though and can’t bear to strip em and use them for another project.

So they will forever stand as 2 random Imperial Fists in my collection.

As you can see, they are the forge world iron armor models. I love the look. Very grim and very mechanical.

The yellow took me a long time to get right and I really love this colour. I couldn’t remember the recipe now even if my life depended on it. Haha. I feel it’s a worn, muted yellow that still has enough pop to stand out.

I also tried to freehand the iconography on a model for the first time. Although it’s not perfect I was really quite happy with my effort.

Especially from a distance 😛

Anyways looking back I should probably get around to basing them properly or something. Maybe they can be part of a diorama. Haha.

What do you guys think?

It’s strange what models we end up having an affinity for, and the weird twists and turns this hobby takes us through, isn’t it?
