Art Scale Carcharodons and Rainbow Warrior W.I.P

A little while ago, I did a test mini for a Carcharodon force I wanted to make. I had a blast painting him, and decided that I would go with Carcharodons as my Art Scale army, not Ultramarines. I recideved the Badab War books from Forge World for Yule, which further cemented my choice.

With this choice made, I created the final 9 members of a Tactical Squad, and began to think about where I wanted to go with this project. For now, here is the nearly finished Tactical Squad.

I’m quite proud of how they look, and I am very happy with the new torsos I have been casting. I particularly like the Sergeants, with his dynamic pose and sense of movement. All I have left to do before painting is pick up some more shoulder pads, and fill a few more gaps.

Something else I would like to share is an Art Scale Rainbow Warrior, who I am creating for Fabalah, creator of the Rainbow Warrior wallpaper. As you can see, I am going with the Asgardian theme with the wings on the helm. I still have a little work to do on him, like adding a loincloth of sorts, similar to Sif from Thor. When I get around to painting him, I will using quite a bit of silver and gold, to make him look regal.

Let me know what you think in the comments! Hopefully I can start assembling a second Tactical Squad, as I already have the legs I need, so keep an eye out for that. Don’t forget to like my Facebook page, so you can see new posts as soon as they are up.

    Very nice. Couple of questions. Why is there green stuff on their legs? And are you going to be building a fluffy cinematic army or one that’s good on the table top?

      The green stuff on the legs is to bulk them up, so they are Art Scale Marines, ones that match the size they are in the lore. These guys will actually tower over Imperial Guard and normal humans, as they do in the novels. As for how they will play on the table top, I am going for a well rounded force, equipped to handle most situations.
