STEEM MARINES: ARSENAL EXPANSION (Tools and Army that we picked up with thanks to STEEM)

in steem •  9 months ago

So, I'm pretty excited about this post. I think a few people have actually been waiting for this post.

Today, I'm going to share with you all the first purchases I have made for the STEEM MARINES. This was all paid for by the steem platform. Which is amazing.

We'll take a look at everything, what they're used for, ideas, and other information.

By the way, we're still looking for supporters. If you're a big user, please check this out to see why STEEM MARINES will help add value to Steem, and this article to see how your upvotes will be rewarded.

With that being said, Let's get right into it Marines.

First up, We have picked up something that I thought was just really awesome. It's a hard covered case for store miniatures.

Something that I will be doing is getting the STEEM MARINES insignia right on the front of this bad boy.

It's simple. It's functional. It's easy to carry.

And it's also filled with foam.

The idea here is that you cut foam away to make little "Slots" for your models. Since these miniatures are really expensive and take a lot of effort to create, you definitely want to protect them. This is especially true for our STEEM MARINES.

I would love to get a metal case with the STEEM MARINES logo engraved, but this is an excellent start for what we need it for.

Next up.

This is called a Codex. It's essential to have if you're wanting to play competitively. It's filled with a bunch of special rules, lore, beautiful artwork, and tons of other stuff.

Actually, this book is extremely useful as it has things such as a typical space marine chapter. Which is how I will be integrating supporters into the army.

Very high quality and interesting stuff in here, that you normally wouldn't find online easily.

Moving on to the tools of the trade.

So we got a mix of basics that you absolutely need.

I've got some clippers for cutting the models out of the sprues.

Some citadel plastic glue. Very important for making good contacts.

A small assortment of brushes. Although, I'm not very happy with my selection of brushes. I'll be picking up more later for sure.

We also got a small assortment of synthetic grass. This is used to add interesting details into the base of the models. I do want some more different types of grasses, this is also something that I will be expanding later.

The green mat you see in the background is just a simple hobby mat. Something to assemble on.

I'm definitely going to be looking into getting a few more things. I really wanted a hobby file, and a desktop light.

Getting into the other essentials.

So, we went with Citadel paint. It's pretty much the most high-quality paints that you can get for this hobby.

We will be doing airbrushing. In fact, I actually ordered an airbrush setup today. So we want to get some really high-quality paint jobs, we have to, because a lot of the models we're going to be producing is going to go to supporters.

I made sure to pick out the colors of the Steem Logo as well, so don't worry.

I'll be making another post on color schemes that I want the community to vote on, so if you're on the discord, you're going to be participating in deciding that.

Now to the actual Miniatures.

Quick Note Let me just say that the pictures cannot do these figures justice. You really need to see these in your hand to understand just how creative and artistic they are. They are very high quality, and you will love holding and looking at them. There's just no question about it.

Pretty crazy huh? I can assure you, these are amazing models.

The idea is that every single one of these soldiers will have a backstory and based off of supporters IRL.

Additionally, I picked up some pieces of terrain for taking pictures of our army. As well as awesome terrain to use in games.

Things have changed since I played... that carry case is amazing! I used to lump all my greenskins in together and try and protect everything with tissue paper... my buildings and scenes were constantly destroyed... but the miniatures always survived.

I can't believe you can buy buildings and armoured containers now... that's so genius! I spent so much time creating Ork houses and trees and hills and stuff. Mannnnnnnn!

The Primus Captain looks amazing!
I've never even heard of Inceptors before, but they look like incredible Assault Marines.

What are the dudes under the Inceptors? There's no label on this side of the box.. the 3 dudes?

Man, you did so well... this is quite the stash! I think I read my Codex at least 100 times... it was easily my favourite book.

·

Yeah man, I already knew after holding a model in my hands, that they needed to be protected! Especially when they're like 70+ bucks a squad each! So I can rest easy knowing that my figures will always be protected and safe when not in use and in transit.

These bad boys are the Centurion Devastators. Really high firepower, elite dudes.
Here's their amazon listing

Glad to see you hyped!

·

Awesome. Can't wait to see what they look like out of the box, before and after painting :)

The amount of work that must have gone into designing those figurines is amazing...

·

Definitely man, they are very intricate. Detailed and high quality. I'll be doing a video soon.

nice information

Great tools. I can see some heavy investments in what you have acquired.. good work! Thumbs up!
