Army Showcase- White Scars Primaris Army

Here is a showcase of the White Scars Primaris models that I have painted up so far. The lack of gaming at the moment has given me the opportunity to get more units painted up for my White Scars. Most recently, the contents of the Indomitus box have been added to my Scars, giving them more more power on the tabletop. 
I can't wait to get them back on the tabletop to test their abilities with the new codex. The army pictured below comes to about 2600 pts. Add this to almost 5000 pts of original White Scars, and it is quite a sizeable force that could be fielded in its entirety.

Hobby Update 21/12/20- Primaris Apothecary

Today's Hobby Update features my Primaris Apothecary. This is a really powerful unit in the new codex, and can be spread over my various Marine armies thanks to the generic colour scheme. I didn't actually sped much time on the "arms" on top of the backpack. Odds are these are going to snap off over time, so there was little point in putting much effort into them. In fact, one of them snapped off during the painting, and has been precariously glued back on (the connections are very thin!).

Hobby Update 11/12/20- White Scars Primaris Lieutenant

Today's Hobby Update features the Indomitus Primaris Lieutenant. This should provide some strong re-rolls for my White Scars units, boosting the power of the assault Intercessors.

Hobby Update 09/12/20- White Scars Indomitus Captain

Today's hobby update features a White Scars Captain from the Indomitus box. This was a great model to paint up, and should prove a valuable addition to the army. I like the change to the Storm Shield rule, making the squad tougher against low AP infantry. The Relic shield should also help protect against mortal wounds.

Hobby Update 07/12/20- White Scars Primaris Bladeguard Veterans

Today's Hobby Update features a Bladeguard Veterans squad for my White Scars. This was one of the few units from the Indomitus box that I had yet to paint. They should provide some strong combat punch for the army, with a number of solid, master-crafted power sword attacks. In the assault doctrine, they will be doing 3 damage on the charge, capable to taking out the most powerful infantry units.

Hobby Update 03/12/20- White Scars Assault Intercessors

 Today's Hobby Update features a new Assault Intercessor unit for my White Scars. Given their propensity for combat, adding another assault unit to the army is a solid option for the force. 

I converted one of the Intercessors to carry a Thunder Hammer to give them a bit more punch in melee. This was converted from a Heavy Thunder Hammer from my Deathwatch spares.
