Pink Space Marines??
By the teeth of the living God-Emperor, it matters not what colour the power armour be; It is the might of the bolter and chain-sword that will prevail! Or, er, the Lightning-claw as well!
Okay, okay, okay. Not really.
Although, I imagine it would be great fun to curb-stomp some beardy power-gamer with Purty Pink Power-armoured Space marines, this is merely the second stage of painting the Blood Angels Terminators.
See? A nice manly red!
(not that any color is more womanly or manly than any other color. C’mon people, it’s 2017 here)
Actually, that red is still a few shades from being done. Our heroic marine here will look a lot darker when he’s finished.
The answer is simple:
Our departed gamer already had a squad of tactical terminators painted and assembled:
So I instead went with the Lightning Claws that I had left over from my own Crimson Fist Marine army.
Yeah, I know according to the meta, Thunder Hammer and Storm shield are the way to go for Assault (because of that sweet 3++ save) but I like lightning claws.
More importantly, I had them just laying around, and even more importantly, there was a five man Tactical Terminator squad already painted.
Next time, I’ll post the finished squad, and figure out what to paint next!
