Oh the lamentations of fate...

Well first off I currently don't have a camera, so any articles will have to be displayed with found artwork, such as the fine piece above. This guy happens to be a Lamenters Space Marine, which is my newest current project.

For those of you who don't know about the Lamenters, they are a cursed founding chapter who use the gene-seed of Sanguinius with the Black Rage bred out. The downside being they have genetically bad luck. Examples of this include them accidentally siding with Huron during the Badab Uprising, and then for penance being sent into the mouth of Hivefleet Kraken. Barely three companies of Lamenters live in the galaxy now. I'm using the new foundations and washes to create the yellow for my armour. I'm going for more of a mustard, dark tone than the picture above. The recipe is this;

1.White spray undercoat
2.Tau Sept Ochre
3.Devlan Mud Wash
4. Iyanden Darksun
5.Highlight Golden Yellow
6.Highlight Sunburst Yellow

So far the checkers have been really fun to paint and I've also added them on place like kneepads and jump pack jets.

Here is the list I am making-

Captain Roderic w/ Bolter, Power Fist, Hellfire Rounds 135
Librarian Jordanes w/ Gate of Infinity, Plasma Pistol
Force Dome, Epistolary 165

8*Sternguard w/ 2*Combi-plasmas 210

10*Marines w/ Meltagun, Multimelta, Combi-melta 185
in Droppod 35

10*Marines w/ Meltagun, Multimelta, Combi-melta, Power Fist 210

5*Scouts w/ Heavy Bolter, Combi-melta 95

Fast Attack
10*Assault Marines w/ Power Weapon 205
5*Vanguard w/ Jump Packs, 2*Power Weapons 190

Heavy Support
Land Raider Redeemer w/ Extra Armour, Multimelta 265
6*Devastators w/ 2*Missle Launchers, Lacannon 171
