Thanks to Josh Muma of Bedlam Creations, I am about to do something that I've always wanted to do.
I'm completely re-doing the shoulder pad squad markings for the entire Azure Flames army.
Bedlam creations helped me to set up a very large decal sheet with roman numerals 1-20 in all of the colors of the companies except orange and purple (they wouldn't fit).
Due to the complete coincidence of Bedlam Creations being so close to me, they shipped incredibly fast. I got them today and took them for a spin on the new Indominus models I've already painted.
Only the green is shown so far because all of my Primaris marines are going to belong to the 4th company. Soon, though, I will intersperse labeling the other squads in my box. Once done with my current Firstborn Sergeants, I will now work on alternating between Indominus and already painted squads to replace shoulder pads.
On a more practical note, even in a good case, paint jobs and models suffer wear and tear. I haven't done a full-case maintenance job for half a decade and it's long overdue. This is the perfect opportunity.
If other things go well, Firstborn marines may even get a base size upgrade, if that seems like a good idea. It doesn't now, but it may in the future.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HOW DOES MY PLATE ALWAYS STAY SO FULL? Too much ambition!
Next: Firstborn Sergeants and then a special Indominus surprise! Some old friends are coming back!
