Epic: Chaos Marines - Tactical Squads (WIP)

My blogging rate on this project has been lower than I'd like and some upcoming time off is going to do nothing to improve that, so I thought I'd get a quick WIP update posted to keep things rolling along.

At the moment I'm working on preparing a full Company of Tactical Marines for the Epic Chaos force.

For those who have forgotten how that works, that's 3 detachments of Marines (each detachment being 5 bases of 5 marines) and a Command base.

So to that end, I've been painting Tactical Marines. 75 of them. Not as big a challenge at this scale as it would be at 28mm, but the painting itself is more fiddly.

Anyway, I'm within spitting distance of being able to get these guys based (there are a few details here and there to add) and since I'm unlikely to be able to post again until the end of next week I thought I'd share what I've done so far:

As you can no doubt see from the photo the guys with the missile launchers aren't painted yet. I'm going to use a small number of them as troops on the Command bases, but as they're posed sideways on on the sprue I decided to leave painting them until I'd removed the other models and could work around them a bit more easily.

More news as it comes in.
