This is a constant work in progress. I paint this army primarily for enjoyment, as I rarely play 40K anymore.
Let's have a look at some Tac Marines first.
The shoulder pads are from Games Workshop, and have a sculpted Flesh Tearer icon. The resin bases are from Back 2 Base-ix, ( www.http://www.back2base-ix.com/ ) an awesome Australian company that sell of all manner of Wargaming accessories. Their resin bases are stunning and are also incredibly cheap - 10 x 25mm round bases like you see here sell for A$6.95
The backbanner icon you can see on the Sergeant is a resin piece from Chapterhouse Studios ( http://chapterhousestudios.com/ ) - more on them later.
The colour scheme is based on a deep red, not the typical red-gore colour that produces a more browny-red that is often associated with the Flesh Tearers. I like the deep red better.
