Love the colour scheme: nice and brightly heraldic. Or to use a 4th ed. phrase from the build your own chapter rules: 'Take pride in your colours' 8)

And that green shaper is the limited edition model, isn't it?

One page rules Grimdark future is a nice stopped back and streamlined 40k type game.

I second that. We recently played two games of Grimdark Future Firefight (the skirmish version) in one evening, with time to spare. The rules are nice and simple, but do have enough depth to make each force feel different.

First time playing a 40K(ish) game in almost a decade, and it was a blast! I too probably have mostly 3rd ed games under the belt, with quite a bit of 4th thrown in and some 5th as well. But to me too, 3rd remains as the most fun of the editions. And Grimdark Future feels like 3rd a lot :)

Thanks guys! The colour choice on the marines was made by my son with a little help from me. He recently demanded more red, so I try to add a bit here and there.

The green Kroot shaper is indeed the limited edition. Love that one.

Another four terminators, this time with thunder hammers. The shields gave me the opportunity to add some red accents, and I used more gold rather than just dark silver. Plus a group shot with the first three of this batch.

Finally finished the Genestealers for Space Hulk. Not my best piece of work, but it will do. I had a real hard time painting pink. It only seemed to work when I started mixing the colour myself instead of using a triad.

More marines. Finally finished the remaining miniatures for space hulk plus some extra primaris for good measure. If I‘m lucky I might get in a game of space hulk with the boys next week.

They look very good to me, and what’s most important: you can play the game fully painted!
That’s actually my biggest issue with the modern versions, the models, while stunning and dynamic, take really, really long to finish.
