We’re back brothers! After what feels like forever the keys to my old rental were handed back today. Now I’ve got to get all the boxes sorted so I can start using my new 20×8 foot bunker for 40k.
The emperor has granted a short shore leave of 4 days before starting the bunker take and hold mission. I’ve taken 11 models with me which I’ve already started to paint. There are 5 assault marines, my mkiv command squad and a tactical marine with a heavy bolter. I’ll try to get a work in progress shot up tomorrow.
Some New space marine pictures have hit the web this week. The Tactical squad does indeed now appear to have a mk6 chest plate, along with mk4 legs Given mkiv legs are included and a set of studded mkvi which could proxy as mkv, it should be possible to build a sergeant in all mks of power armour from mkiv through to mkvii; as long as you don’t give him a helmet. There is still time to find there is a few other helmets in there but at this stage it looks unlikely. Given not all chapters have access to older suits of armour this is probably a good compromise, and shouldn’t risk a loss of forge world sales( mkvi armour being one of there top ten selling products).
It’s good to be back. Ben
