Another reworked squad is complete. This unit of Assault Marines of the Ultramarines 2nd Company took longer than expected, but then I have a hard find time to find some spare time to paint at the moment. Nevertheless, I grinded on, and here is the result! Check out all the pictures after the jump.
The Sergeant is a completely new addition I built mainly from Vanguard Veteran parts. He is wearing a full suit of Mk6 armour, I used plain shoulder guards without trims and also smoothed the arm greaves to mimick the design of Forge World's Mk6 set. Fun fact: with about 18 hobby years under my belt, this is probably the first plasma pistol I ever painted. Just 8th Edition things.
The Marine in the middle is a Corporeal, a rank carried by a combat squad leader dating back to some older 2nd Edition era background. I think the bionic eye and arm make a nice pair.
Here you can see the squad before the reworking. The grey parts are obviously all the new parts I added, but I also improved the paint jobs on every model by refining the highlights, especially on the blue armour.
