Hi all,
I thought I'd share with you my current 40k Space Marine army project.
With the release of 8th edition 40k and the new Primaris marines I thought it was a great opportunity to build a new army and learn the new system.
The Dark Imperium box came with a force of marines that I intended to build onto to bulk out my army.
I then had to make the all important decision as to what chapter I would do my new army. Knowing that I wanted to get something on the table top quickly I decided on a metallic colour scheme as these are fast to produce and are very forgiving when it comes to shading and highlighting.
I then had a look at the available chapters in steel armour and settled on the Silver Skulls chapter.
I remember the Silver Skulls from the original Rogue trader 40k book and knew they had a solid background so they where an easy choice.
The chapter symbol is the old Iron Warrior icon from the old Chaos space marine transfer sheet, luckily I had plenty of these to use.
The main armour for the marines is simply a black undercoat then leadbelcher spray then wash nuln oil and black ink mix. This allowed me to get the main part of each marine painted quickly so I could focus on the helmets and other details.
Here is what I've got done so far, I'm just assembling more Hellblasters and inceptors right now.
Hope you like


  1. Lovely models, and always a delight seeing anything painted by you, too bad that we don´t see it more often!!! :)

  2. Lovely looking toys Daz.

    All the best. Aly

  3. I've really enjoyed watching this army come together over on Twitter, it's inspiring how incredible you can make a straightforward scheme look. Can't wait to see a Primaris Ancient added in eventually!

  4. That is a fantastic arm! May I ask how long it took to get this done?

  5. These look amaxing! Can’t wait to see more!!
