Anyway, they are done.
A second tactical squad. This time armed for close assault of infantry rather than holding ground or tackling armour.
The sergeant (although the model might actually be something else) packs a power sword and a plasma pistol.
The flamer guy should get round that perpetual issue of needing to roll to hit - which is apparently quite good in overwatch.
All but one of the Marines in this squad are actually metal miniatures. These three are the same metal miniature.
I ran out of bolters when assembling this squad. In fact, several of the bolters are carved off the snap-together marines from the Assault on Black Reach starter set.
This squad will probably be put in the Rhino for getting forwards into the enemy. Unless that's not a good plan. It seems like a good plan, but until actually play a game of 40k, I won't know.
Despite getting these 10 finished, I've actually had a run of things I ordered arrive over the last couple of weeks meaning that I've gained another 15 miniatures.
I should still have enough of a buffer to cope with Christmas acquisitions, but who knows?
Anyway, I hope tomorrow's reduced celebrations bring you everything you want.
