|Group progress, I has it.|
|Shoulder cross also lined.|
Still, I will forge on all the same.
To-do list to finish the second batch:
Don't have varnish or decals on hand, so the most possible today is through basing.

I ordered some dice I've been looking at for a long time, black with red pips and yellow with black pips. I like having colors match when possible, and while the blue dice did fine they didn't exactly fit in with my Blood Angels scheme. Or Iron Dwarves. Or Khador. They'll see the field again with Empire stuff though, and perhaps Orks as well, so they're just getting some time off instead of heading out to pasture. In a final bit of impulse, I got a Warrior Priest as well. He'll probably serve as an Arch Lector for a while because I love the model and will probably be using one for my general. I wouldn't mind figuring out a way to put him on a War Altar, but that's down the pipe.
My beside-the-photo paragraphs are losing steam, but I still have two more pictures to go.

|I've started thinking of this guy as "Clubhouse"|
I have this problem where I want my models to be "useful." Not in an over-arching, real world sort of way, but for my hobbying. The myriad color schemes for Marines are one of the things I like most about them, but I know that if I paint up a handful of Space Wolves, Black Templars, or some scheme I think would look nice I'll eventually need bodies for a new Blood Angels squad. Then I'll curse my "waste" of a Marine and start thinking about re-purposing it. Something like that Spartan fellow is different enough that it wouldn't really fit in with the GW stuff, so there (hopefully) will be less desire to use it as a gaming mini, thereby allowing me to exercise these flights of scheme fancy.
