'90s Space Marine Challenge

 I already have one challenge to meet in July,, but here's something I just can't resist jumping on the bandwagon for: #90spacemarinechallenge. This challenge was thrown out to all by Darren Lathem on Instagram. Thebob brought it to my attention, well, I just happen to have a few of these things kicking around, so what the heck, let's do it! 

Darren stated on Instagram while following up on some questions that he didn't want to see any conversions, just the stock model. And that we are to use the original 25mm base. I have enough of these guys to do a squad or three. I have been wanting to model these guys on 32mm bases, and I have been flirting with the idea of doing a send squad of Celestial Lions. But  it's just a single guy for this competition and I can always use extenders once it's all over to get him in line with the rest of the squad, assuming I chose to do a full squad. 

I have chosen the model.

So how should I paint my guy? My choices are:

I could do Dark Angels or Legion Of The Damned but this old miniature just won't conform with models I already have for these factions. So it's a pick from one of those three. If you want to try to influence my decision just leave a comment below.

These things can be found throughout my Warhammer 40,000 collection.

lol, At one point damned near my ENTIRE Storm Wardens army was made up of these guys, Don't have any of them now though.

I say make him a Smurf to go with your brother's ancient army.
