Default Spartan legions Apocalypse army - with allied DH & IMPS (PIC HEAVY)

basically with the arrival of apocalypse on our doorstep's we're all building armies to prepare for the release, so with that in mind i decided to get to work on my army this is a space marine chapter i created and its going to have 2 possible allies the Grey knights or Imperial guard:









































And a possible ally to this force is my imperial guard army:





















Also to be added to the army is a sword brethrens squad to use as another veterans squad, and a biker command squad. C&C welcome.

even though the paint is thick at some areas, the army as a whole look fantastic! you really have a graet and ballanced apocalypse force there. not just cheesed out units. good job!

I love that Dimebag Termie, nice work. The rest are good too, but that one really means something.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

These are really good! It has inspired me to (over quite a while probably) make an IG apocalypse army. Well done!

Grey knights are hard to paint right. Not a bad effort.

With Apoc i do believe that if you can justify it it's legal to use (allies wise). So SM/DH/WH/IG combo would work fine i would believe.

I mean i'm using my choas, with a corrupted =I= and a heap of traitor catachans

Then again my club is having an EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT (but can justify) competition.


Overall the army looks great. i love the leman russ tank commander, and the HSO remind me of a snobbish pommy. and those sentinels are AWESOME!!! spech the 'makeshift' one.

Right cheers guys for the comments as for snow its just the snow scatter applied with super glue i used several coats of snow though on some of them they've had 6 coats of snow a good example of this is the larkin sniper model.

Well as other peoplehave said, the paint is a bit thick on the models but the army as a whole is very impressive. I really like some of the conversions you've done for your marines as well.
Nice showcase. +1 Karma!
