With all the Kill Team hype going around i decided to cleanse my 6mm painting palette with some 28mm (or what ever the hell size they are now!)
There is a boxed set called 'First Strike' designed to be the cheap first hit from the GW dealers to hook the youngsters in. it contains 3 Nurgle/Death Guard Plague Marines, 6 Poxwalkers, 3 Primaris Marines, and 3 Reivers (Primaris Scouts/Assault guys i guess!)
for £20 this pretty much gives you 2 full Kill Teams, and i just fancied painting them, so no more justification required.
I've done a Marine in my (slightly improved) Dark Angels scheme, with the Reiver i've imagined him as part of the Raven Wing, or at least a more stealthy/ninja Dark Angel dressed all in black/grey.
For the Death Guard i opted for more of a Legion colour scheme, but with plenty of rot added. And for the Poxwalkers i went with the same scheme as my Genestealer Cult/Rogue Trader crew - to indicate they were once part of the same ship crew that became corrupted.
Anyhoo, I just need to finish off the basing, and decide what i want to do with the other Marines, as i'm tempted to do them in a different scheme, possibly Imperial Fists?!
Oh! and as a wee bonus - an old school Lightning Claw'd up Deathwing Terminator (something i painted in-between posts at some point last month)
