9th Edition and a New Marine Project

I've been watching the new 9th Edition articles with a fair bit of excitement.  The timing really couldn't have been more perfect for me.  Having recently lost 95%+ of my hobby stuff, including all of the rules and most of the models, this is a perfect jumping back in point.

Given that I don't currently have much in the way of a coherent army, I'll be starting with 500pts of Raven Guard Successors.  I'll most likely be using the upcoming Crusade rules to give my dudes a bit of lore as I build up the army.

To start with, I'll be using a Vanguard Marines Patrol Detachment...
  • Captain in Phobos Armour (Warlord)
  • Lieutenant in Phobos Armour
  • 10x Infiltrators
  • 3x Suppressors
I was able to salvage these models, but the painting I'd done was ruined and so were the bases.  I'm going to start by rebasing and priming.  The glue for the sand is currently drying.  It's a nice day, so I'm hoping to prime them so I can start painting tomorrow (or maybe tonight).

I have a game scheduled for Friday night with a friend.  I'm hoping to be able to get some paint on at least a few of these guys before them.  I was originally going to go for a halved paint scheme, but I'm changing my mind on that.  Now, I think I'm going to go for more of a dark teal color, with grey cloaks.  I think that'll look nice.
