Battle for the Craftworld - Sons Of Orar - Troops Two

Posted by with 1 comment

Following on from the Eldar Troops choices in our last post, here are the other two Troops choices for the Sons Of Orar Space Marines.

The first squad we have here has a slightly darker cast to their red armor, and some lovely chipping/weathering effects, all from the hands of Texas-resident Will Thornton. These marines are a great example of some moody and carefully considered paint jobs. The sergeant is equipped with a combi-bolter/grav-gun and a power sword, ready to cleave his Eldar foe with ease.

While the special weapons trooper is equipped with a grav-gun, obviously the weapon of choice for our Space Marines this summer : )

The third and final Tactical squad for the army comes from A.J. Taflan (from Montana). His red is a little brighter than Will's, and his weathering/chipping is just as impressive.

The sergeant is armed (thanks to magnets) with a combi-weapon or bolt pistol and either a power sword or power first.

And the pointing special weapons trooper has the options for a meltagun, flamer, grav-gun, or plasma gun.

I think you'll agree that, combined with Neil's first Tactical squad, these make for a solid core for the Sons Of Orar.

Thanks to Will and AJ for their continued support of this wonderful project!

And our thanks to our sponsors who contributed to this project. 
Please support them, so that they can continue to support us!

  1. Very nice! re the varying shades of red: Some units have been in filed longer and sometimes official paint colors can't reach the front lines and you just make do. War is hell, especially on your paint job :P
