Sons of Horus Tactical demi-squad done

The pics of UK games day have gotten my creative juices bubbling. And I managed for finish the first 5 infantry figures for the Sons. As you can see I am continuing with the battle warn beaten to hell look of the marines,and persevering with the sea green scheme because I think the official FW scheme looks like shit.

FW have also changed the eye of horus they are using, these guys sport the updated one, and the original contemptor will be the odd one out with the old style. I am considering whether or not to pick up some of the decal, or continue with the freehanding of the symbols.

Each of the marines also has a chaos star of some type free handed onto their armour somewhere, though most of them got so battle damaged its hard to make them out.

It was my first attempt at using the airbrush to do this style of power weapon, and I must say I really like the effect. I would have preferred a purple, but I didn't have the right colours, and impatience won out.

Next is assembling the rest of the squad, and deciding what out of all the awesome FW goodies I want next!
