The Badab War project

 As I had announced a long time ago, I decided to slowly paint the remainder of my space marines to represent the various chapters involved in the Badab War.

I am moving through this project on both 40K stuff and Epic, I'm sticking to the background and colour schemes as presented in the Warhammer 40,000 Compendiuim from the Rogue Trader era, that is when I first got interested in this conflict, so it makes sense that the original Gary Chalk representation of the various chapters of Space marines be my guide in the development of the project.

In this post I'm showing what I painted in the past year as part of the loyalist chapters. Since there are only four renegade chapters, and a ton of loyalist ones and I want to have at least a single model of each of the uniform options, it makes sense that the loyalist have the lion's share of the models, but I'll try to get more renegades done as well in the future.

Back from Italy

 I just got back from a quick (way to quick) trip to Italy, I was there for a couple of weeks to see the family and friends I left behind when I moved to Canada.

It was very nice, I ate a lot of pizza and did a bit of tidying up in the pile of stored miniatures, I still had a few primed models left behind from 2016 and I took some with me to paint, but there are more there waiting.

While packing my stuff for the trip, I remembered that I had some 1/72 Hat romans I painted years ago with plain white shields, so I made sure to pack a sheet of decals to fix the problem.

These ate those models

Since I got back I have not painted anything, but I hope to do something this weekend, I am one figure away from being able to post the first part of my new addition to the Badab War project, the loyalist marines I painted in the last year, after those there will be the very very small part of renegades.

As you might have noticed, I decided to drop the double language and just write in English, I feel it doesn't really make any more sense to keep the Italian part, let me know in the comments if you think I should keep it.
