Progress! Hopefully not the last either. I'm back and with One Force marines no less. Here's my latest addition, a trio of bikers to add into my force to help me on the way to running one of the new Codex Space Marine formations.
The two slightly drunk bikers are taken from the Dark Vengence set, bodies replaced with more generic marine torso's (One Force are a spartan chapter after all), and Volkite Calivers for weapons. As these don't appear in 40K, I can reasonably claim them to be grav-weapons for the purposes of running them as filthy grav-bikers. The Sergeant gets the standard yellow helm, and a combi-grav which is a DIY combination of a Volkite Caliver and a bolter from Anvil Industries.
These also mark a slight change in my painting technique for One Force. Previously I've completely avoided the use of metallics in their colour scheme, but on reflection (its only taken my 40+ models), I've decided to change their weapons and a few other details to metallic and give them black weapons housings. This'll be applied to all of the models going forward, and potentially retro-applied to the older models.
I've not weathered the models yet because that is another aspect I'll be changing going forward, but I haven't had a chance to experiment yet.
