Yep, time for some updates on the stalwart sons of Ferrus! Alas, GW Direct Order has been slower than the VA on getting me the remaining bitz packs I need, so that's hampered things a bit, but things still progress. The deadline for the first 500 points is fast approaching, I have until August 31st to complete two combat squads, two Razorbacks, and a Librarian. But I've been working on the army in general, and here's an update on many of the units.
First up, the first combat squad is effectively done. All that's left is the bases, which are hopefully in the mail by now.
The second combat squad is nearly completion as well. I mostly just have to do the highlighting and some minor details, like their ammo and purity seals.
I also gave the sergeant a different loadout. All the sergeants will have unique wargear selections, and this one has a chainsword and FW Heresy-era plasma pistol. I think the third will have a bolt pistol and power weapon when I get to him. I also did his back banner in the old style, with the old "pole only" backpack and used some carefully cut decal paper covered in glue and spray-primer to thicken it up. And then, of course, threw on a couple FW decals.
Next up are the transports!
Now the army in general!
Given my viewing the Iron Hands almost as Vulcan Space Marines, I'm tempted to look up Vulcan names to apply here, heh.
So, hopefully those bitz packs come in, and I can finish assembling the army! Really liking how these guys are coming out!
