Starting an Army: Mantis Warriors

So I've been tinkering with the idea of actually starting and playing an army again. I mentioned in my last post that I would be interested in starting up a Mantis Legion/Warriors army. 

With the new edition fairly new I figured it would be a good time for me to jump back into the gaming aspect of 40k. Having sat out all of 5th edition, it'll be like learning the whole game from scratch. But non the less, I've decided to start and painted up my first test model. 

So check out the model and let me know what you think so far. Mind you it's only a test model to get the color scheme and knowing which colors I'm going to use. The model isn't finished, but I'm sure I'll get around to finishing up the fine detail stuff sooner or later.

Mantis Legion/Warriors Sergeant with Power Fist.

Mantis Legion/Warriors Logo free-handed. Not the exact symbol, but close enough. I mean come on, I had to make it simple enough to free-hand paint all of them on all the other minis.

Just wanted to show the gradation of the shoulder pad and NMM I did on the boltgun. Will add the tactical symbol and number shortly.

So let me know what you guys think.

Looking great so far! My first space marines were painted in the same color green and yelow. (they were my first so they were no way near the quality yours are painted) The problem i had with them is that they looked a bit dull on the table. Specialy on green tables. I scrubbed them and I'm repainting them as blood angels. (partly due to the cool codex).

Cheers,
Seb

Sorry to spam you but I thought it would be nice to show you some of my old marines in case you've not seen my blog.
