Last month, I was contacted by my Uncle Ray, who was looking after his grandson, William. William wanted to talk to me about his own plans for a Space Marine/Imperial Guard force and after some time chatting to him on the phone. I decided that I would send him this small group of 16 Space Marines and a couple of pieces of terrain.
The force is split into three main factions - Snake motif.
The Officers or command squad - the Omega Squad.
And the Spartans, which in turn have two sets of shoulder pad designs - an Inverted 'V' and a stylised 'S'.
At the time these were the very first gold painted Space Marines that I had ever come across, but today the Spartan themed uniforms are quite common.
As a painted squad they were intended for gaming and not display, however they have weathered years tucked away in a dusty cupboard quite well.
This scratch-built Dreadnought was intended to be a Cyclops dreadnought and also painted in the Gold colour scheme; I just never got around to it. I did, however build two Scratch Built and wheeled Rhinos, which I sold at some bring-and-buy.
