F%#$&ing Scouts!!!!

I ran into (at least in my mind), one of the most difficult plastic models to assemble. It looks easy, but noooooo, it's not. I speak of the heavy bolter scout. I could NOT for the life of me get the damn weapon and arm to match up at all. Finally, after about a half out of working with gooey plastic and strings of glue, I tossed it aside, went down to find a plastic scout from an older Raptors collection and just painted over the damn body armour. Done.

So, as you may have guessed from the rant above, that I have begun working on my Ultramarines project. I decided to step up the project because I heard from some old gaming buddies that are getting back into 40k and have even started playing already, so I need to get something together to game with. Right now, I've got:

Sternguard Veteran Squad (5)


Tactical Squad (10) w/ missile launcher, plasma gun
Tactical Squad (10) w/ heavy bolter, flamer

Scout Squad (6) w/bolters, heavy bolter, Sgt. Telion

Assault Squad (5) sgt w/ plasma pistol, power fist

Predator w/ lascannons
Haven't tallied the points yet, but I would guess right around the 1500 point range. I'm simutaneously painting and building as fast as I can.


  1. I hate those plastic scout kits! Assembling a box of sniper scouts killed all enthusiasm I had for an project I was working on last year. By the time I finally had them put together I didn't want to see the F%#$ing things again. I'm glad you were able to find an alternate model to use, best of luck to you with your Ultramarines army.

  2. I can't tell you the number of times that some like that causes me to lose momentum. That probably explains all of the rubbermaids full of models in my basement.

  3. At least the motivation is back, congrats on reconnecting with an old group.
