Space Marine Tactical Squad

So my future Imperial Fist army may be gaining momentum. It went from a few ideas in my head to an actual squad in a couple of days! I had a chance to sit down with the Marine codex this week and absolutely loved it. I think this army is totally made to do well in 7th Edition. It tops everyone as far as versatility goes.

The only chapter I could ever do would be the Fists. I love the fluff, their Primarch, the color scheme, everything. This would be the first good guy Marine army I've ever done in the eighteen years I've been playing this game (other than that time with Grey Knights...)

I picked up a Tac Squad earlier this week and used the last day of my vaca to put them together. My idea for this army is a veteran force of hardcore city fighters. Since your typical Marine mini is a tad boring, I decided to pay more attention to their bases. I'm using plasticard to replicate steel flooring (which I need to clean up the edges of) and plan on using pieces of rubble and  destroyed walls freely as well. I also want to make them look like they've been in constant war for a while; pieces of their armor are blasted and in desperate need or repair.

Stay tuned, more yellow is on the way!

Great looking builds, man! Looking forward to seeing 'em all yellowed up!

Looking great! Lot of character in the bases, poses, and bitz additions.

Imperial fists is one of the best chapters of space marines...well after black templars..but we are part fists anyway :)
