After so long I have finally been able to do a bit of progress, I built the minis and did some basing here are thee boys ready to be primed.
I used 4 different basing materials plus some bits from the basing kit.
the 2 scouts are looking good so far so I will need telion and another 2 scouts to have a 5 man squad.
I have also completed a five squad of second edition space marines and 5 bodies for TAC Space Marines.
it is amazing what you can do with enough bitz.
