So I've been upgrading and mechanizing my Black Templars to prepare for a VERY large 40K game coming up in a couple of weeks, and I want to be able to field 5,000 points.
Not all of my units are ready to go, so I've been upgrading the paint job and adding equipment. Trying to do all of this on a budget and, since I think it's fun, I like to take used models and rehabilitate them. In this case, I have a Tactical Squad that was once a Crusader Squad and the very first Black Templars unit I ever painted, back in 2006 or so. I needed a transport for them, so I acquired this Rhino on eBay:
The extra Space Marines I gave to my daughter, who is now working on her own Ultramarines army
Then I repainted the Rhino, added some details and parts, then updated the paint scheme and bases on the old unit. Now, they're Black Templars Tactical Squad II of the XVI Crusade.
