It was time I got back to my Space Marines. I know I have some Squads to fill up, but the other day I remembered I had something I got some time ago. It was a bunch of 'Specialist marines', i.e., some Chaplains, Techmarines and Medics (or Apothecaries if you prefer). I felt in the mood for some black badass Marines, so... let's get some work on them!
In fact this has been quite a speedpaint job. I didn't want to spend that much time on these (I'll ellaborate this later...). But given the time I used, they are not that bad...
|It's all about the attitude|
|These guys invented the Angry Marines Chapter|
|Skulls, skulls everywhere. They were here from the beginning...|
|Finally! A touch of colour!|

|What says 'Chaplain' better than a banner of Death walking over a pile of skulls?|
As you can see I'm keeping the beige weapons theme more or less, just like the rest of my army. No big deal, as the limited palette made this quite easy. Even the hand made banner was quite a quick job. I don't really know how the guys in GW came with the idea of Chaplains for the Space Marines and how they developed the concept of scaring guys in skull helmets, but well, they look like the deal, no messing with these!
With these guys I really do have a Reclusiam for the Chapter. What possible use could I have for soo many Chaplains? The answer is that I found something else within the box when I opened it... Something that besides will explain why I was talking about the speedpainting... You'll get a glimpse just in a few days! ;)
