Granite Guard

I noticed that I was starting to slop things up on Ghaz, which means I needed a break from him.  Here's a couple more of my Granite Guard.  While they aren't finished, it was nice to work on something new.  I've tried to speed up my process with these, which probably shows in these pictures.  However, I think the finished product will be fine when viewed as a squad.

Ghaz Conversion 7: The never ending project is...

...still not finished, but I'm tired of seeing the same image on my Chrome page, so I thought I'd post what little progress there is:

 Still a lot of detailing, more pics in here:

I have a little paint on Ghaz now, the main colors anyway.  There's a lot of cleaning up and detailing to complete.  (Lots of Goff checks)

 Last post I mentioned the two base sizes, click for a better look at just the 40mm...

I decided to cross Ghazzie off the to-do list.  A little work on his PK and base work, including rigging it so I can play him on either a 40 or 60mm base.  Ready for paint:

The Granite Guard Space Marines

After way too much debate, I've finally settled on a paint scheme for my DIY Space Marine chapter.  I kicked around scheme after scheme, several of which I never posted, trying to find something original and enjoyable.  I came to the conclusion that any scheme was going to resemble another chapter somewhere, so I'm going with colors I enjoy painting/like the look of.
I revised my painting for the Granite Guard, bringing it closer to what I originally envisioned...darker, more muted, less Ultramarines.  My current thinking is that the Granite Guard are a successor chapter of the Imperial Fists, and will inherit some of their aptitude for siege and defense.  I like the idea of running Vindicators and Ironclads, and the vehicles will further separate the chapter from any blue brothers, as they will predominately be the 'granite gray' of the pauldrons (copy-catting Red Scorpions paint layouts in a lot of ways).

BIG MEK w/ KFF Finished...

...for now, anyway.  There are lots of little things I could tweak and mistakes I could clean up, but I'm satisfied for the moment.  I enjoyed working on him, but I'm also ready to take him off my hobby to-do list.
