So, to keep myself motivated and get feedback, I've decided to use this thread to post both completed and WiP images and share some of the background as well! Above is my Legion Praetor, with a little bit of background. You may have seen him in the Hall of Honour where he has been posted before. Below is the next character I'm working on, a fairly straightforward kit bash of a veteran marine. Let me know what you think! All C&C welcome!
