McQueen's Marauders - Tactical and Terminator Squads

Went ahead and based them using coffee grounds mixed with sand for the flocking. For the coloring of the bases, Vallejo Field Grey and Green Grey were dry-brushed over a black basecoat. The colors were chosen mainly because I had them from painting up WW2 Germans in the past - and it looked close to what I envisioned their planet LeMans' ground cover might look like.

Terminators out in front of the Tactical guys, as well as the Captain in the center rear. The buildings are from another close-out sale many years ago - I bought them for my youngest son who used to play with Star Wars figures. Never thought I'd use them myself, but they look perfect for 40K.

  5. Very nice work, Dean; they look pretty darn smooth!

    And I thought I smelled coffee - does that count as performance-enhancing substances?
