Genesis Chapter Tactical Squad finished, with custom transfers!

Finally, my first Genesis Chapter tactical squad is finished! In fact I had them lying around for some time already, but only recently I have printed a transfer paper for them.

They are far from perfect but I think they'll look well on table. Painting AOBR marines was just pain; I find their poses extremely lackey. Actually there are only 8 AOBR marines; two were already painted in Ultramarines colors, so I have replaced them with marines from the battleforce. They definately make the squad seem more lively.

Assault On Black Reach, Genesis Chapter, Sergeant, Tactical Squad

Here is sergeant Lucius, along with two of his faithful marines.

I am not fond of the sergeant model, his pose does not make much sense. If I'll ever get my hands on another AOBR sergeant, I'll try to convert him a bit with Green Stuff.

I have equipped him with a meltabomb, you can see it behind his leg. I am working on a meltagun marine now, who might replace this squad's flamer. With a meltagun, melta bombs and a missile launcher, this could be a good anti-vehicle squad.

Missile Launcher Marine is probably the most interesting of the AOBR tacticals. He has some nice unique details, like the backpack or the stormtrooper-style helmet.

Here is the flamer marine, who will be possibly replaced, and the two battleforce marines.

Here is the whole squad again:

Note that you can find the Genesis Chapter logo sheet on Bell of Lost Souls.

Anyways, back to painting now! I will post the meltagun marine soon, as well as the Dreadnought, now with Genesis Chapter markings.

Thanks for reading! As always, opinions are most welcome.

  1. They look good. I think that making the helmet lenses a different color would help them pop more.

  2. Looking good, furthering sonsoftsurus' point could I suggest green for the lenses possibly

  3. Thank you! I'll experiment with the colors a bit, I think orange, yellow or light blue could be good as well.
