Star Wars Stormtrooper Space Marines

By | 14th January 2019

Recently I got some models in a trade, with them came some extras with a Fallen vibe to them. Suddenly I had a number of Dark Angels in my possession. Now the Unforgiven were never a Space Marine Chapter I would intend to collect, but I have been looking at Kill Teams recently.

So the idea of a Star Wars themed Kill Team came to mind, in particular a set of Stormtroopers. After all they all serve the Emperor right?

I went for a very stylised look to these, going from a dark grey and working my way up to white armour. Almost a cell shaded effect akin to Borderlands. Hasn’t quite worked out but I like the look so far.

The Sarge’s face still needs a lot of work, as does he haircut. Wanted to make it appear like he has a full on buzzcut.

All of them have been painted on the bases they came with, but will be moving to 32s next. Gives me a chance to paint the bases up by themselves without the models in way.

The current plan is to use cork and piping to build up bases to match the more urban looking Kill Team vibes.

Any thoughts on colours for the eye lenses? Black or red to keep with the scheme.

The list

+ Leader +

Tactical Sergeant [14pts]: Chainsword, Leader, Plasma pistol

+ Specialists +

Tactical Marine Gunner [16pts]: Plasma gun, Sniper

Tactical Marine Gunner [18pts]: Heavy, Missile launcher

+ Non-specialists +

Tactical Marine [12pts]

Tactical Marine [12pts]

Tactical Marine [12pts]

Tactical Marine [12pts]

++ Total: [96pts] ++


So there we go, a new project half way done that very importantly hasn’t cost me anything. How are you getting on?

    Looking good.

    I’d go with green eye lenses. It would compliment the red accents well and give break things up a bit.

    These are looking rather good.
    A lot of white armor miniatures end up looking flat and dull. Having a bit of “wear” on the armor really makes it pop out nicely.

    Nice, a lot of Star Wars armies I’ve seen are IG (AM) based so these are unusual. At a previous friendly tournament Blog Wars 3 we had two such armies: https://weemen.blogspot.com/2012/06/blogwars3-army-pics-pic-heavy.html cool AT-AT and X-Wing Vendettas!

    I reckon some MKV helmets would really give a Stormtrooper vibe! I think you can actually get 28mm Stormtrooper helmets from a third party company… some on eBay and Shapeways certainly!

    Yeah, possibly worth getting the actual stormtrooper helmets – even if you don’t end up using them here, at least you’ll actually be able to compare and contrast.
