DIY Space Marine bike squad project

I know I haven't been posting as many "project updates" as I was before. A change in my job has left me with much less time for the hobby so I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can on the weekends.

That being said, I've been working on getting this bike squad finished as on of my larger projects I've been trying to wrap up now for the last couple months. I hate when I fall behind and I try to stay on schedule as best I can.

I've got half the squad done now but it's slow going since I'm painting these guys one at a time. I thought I might be able to paint them up in an assembly line fashion but it proved to be problematic for me and it seems like I can get them done faster if I focus on them one at a time. I know it probably takes longer to do it this way but in my mind, I'm cruising right along.

My Project Link: Space Marines Commission

Ron, From the WarpIf you've got any questions about something in this post, shoot me a comment and I'll be glad to answer. Make sure to share your hobby tips and thoughts in the comments below!


  1. I've always loved the Hawk Lords, I think they'd make a great combat patrol force using the DA veterans, great work on these!

  2. Peter: These guys are simialr in their paint scheme but aren't Hawk Lords.
    I will say that the Lords color scheme was stolen for these bikers because it looks so cool.

    There's just something about purple armour with gold trim, it looks so cool.

  3. Very nice. The purple power armor looks excellent on the Black bikes.

  4. So are these one of your armies Ron, or a commission? It is always nice to see what a painter paints when there are no reigns!

    So when do you paint Squatwing?

  5. Drathmere: These guys are a commission I've been working on for a while.

    As for my own army, I'm working on a mechanised Deathwing that has a super low model count.

    Squatwing? Could be some time before I get to that one though.

  6. Looking very nice, I especially like the black bikes/purple riders thing you have going there!

  7. They are indeed looking very smic Ron, you seem to have hit the perfect balance between the colours.

  8. Really like the free hand on the shield
