Default Theres Scouts In My Raccoon Wounds!

Ive wanted to build a scout themed marine army for a year or two now, and since orks arent out till january, I wanna try and get these done for Arcanacon(largest tournament in southern hemisphere) instead. The theme is a loose collection of visual references, mainly being: rockabillies+'kustom kulture', 80's ninja turtle cyperpunks, space rock bands, george clinton and the parliament funkadelic...plus other even less-relevant things(like picasso/braque's hermetic cubism and 'Miyazaki ectoplasm&#39. Fluff-wise, Its something along the lines of being a newly turned renegade(non-chaos) chapter, lured by the voices of sex, drugs, and rocknroll. Its rediculious, but isnt all the established GW fluff anyway? Its a game, so I might as well have fun with all aspects of it!
Because it is a new chapter the list features a lot of scouts, and heavier weaponry suited to supporting their role. The list does not include scout bikes, because scout bikes are possibly the worst unit ever imagined.

HQ
Chapter Master w/ Bike, Power Weapon 120

Troops
10 Scouts w/ 2 Shotguns, 7 bp+ccw, Vet Sarg w/ Master crafted power fist + bp 173

10 Scouts w/ Bolters, 1 Heavy Bolter Sargent power weapon 158

6 Scouts w/ Sniper Rifles, 1 Missile Launcher 113

6 Scouts w/ Sniper Rifles, 1 Missile Launcher 113

Fast Attack
5 Bikes inc. 1 Attack Bike w/ Multimelta, 2 meltaguns Vet Sarg w/ Thunder Hammer 258

2x Attack bikes heavy bolters 100

1 Land Speeder Tornado 80

Heavy Support
Whirlwind 85


Total 1200 pts

At 1500 pts the list will be expanded with a second whirlwind, more scouts, and a dready themed as being "the creepy older guy that hangs out with uni kinds, but always brings beer so he's tolerated".





Anyway, heres some pretty pictures

Test Models:









Heres some of my bodgy preliminary concept sketches.

May I be the first to say how awesome those look?

One note, I don't thinking having unfiltered profanity (in the last sketch) is allowed/appreciated.

Amazing work indeed. The 'Stupidest Idea Ever' sketch is actually a really good idea in my opinion, it'd be awesome for elites...

Waargh's back. I was wondering where you had gone off to. Very cool army theme and so far the models look excellent. Have some welcome back karma.
