My Space Hulk Colonial Marines are nearing completion. As I just finished the second squad, all I have left to paint are the Librarian (combat synth) and the lightning claw terminator (powerloader), expect to see them soon. This is bordering on amazing, I’ve only dreamed of actually completing a project!

Here are the newest three Marines:

With this I’m off to Ropecon 2010, Finland’s biggest roleplaying convention, to enjoy a weekend of sheer nerd heaven. Which basically means a few panel discussions, some board games and drinking beer with old friends.
