Giveaway #2 - Space Marine Squad


Time for Giveaway #2!   As I mentioned in my first post, my giveaways are about getting rid of stuff I'll probably never use.  As such, they won't be the new hot items...but hey, at least they're free!  Like this one:

I really like the idea of having an old school squad in my army, so I picked up some of these 2nd ed. minis. As usual, I got carried away and ended up with enough old school to field an army! So the giveaway for this month is one of these squads. Okay, so it's not actually a legit squad, since there's two missile launchers and no sergeant, but I'm sure you're all clever enough to get around that.

 Find out how to get 'em!




If you want the squad, here's how to get them:

1)  Be a public follower of this blog (I want to see you in the 'Members' widget on the right).
2)  Leave a comment below saying that you want the item.
3)  Challenge!:  In my previous post, I show a converted scout sergeant w/ power fist.  In your comment here, you must correctly guess where that power fist came from.

4)  If you win the item, come back and leave a comment once you've received it saying,"Hey, I got it!"

The criteria may change in the future, but that's it for this one!  You have through July 31 to complete steps 1 and 2, and I'll randomly select and announce the winner the next day.  If you have a blog and mention this on your site, let me know in the comments (supply link).  This will earn you a second entry in the giveaway!

I've enabled ads on this blog in hopes of covering the giveaway shipping costs, but the achievement of that goal is a long way off.  If you're a giveaway winner and would like to help out, I've added a 'Donate' tab at the top of the page.

Last but not least, it would be awesome to see what you do with these Space Marines.  If you get them painted and on the table top, send me a pic.  It would be really cool to do a follow-up post so everyone can see them in action!

I would love these I recently got 2nd edition and I'm trying to build a 2nd edition Lamenters force.

The Fist comes from Marneus Calgar

I gotta have those guys! I love the old school Missile Launchers! They're a little hard to come by (in decent condition anyway).

Well, after sifting through images of Power Fists for the last hour, I'm gonna say that you cut Marneus Calgar's fist down to size. It's the ONLY Power Fist in all of 40k to have the Aquila inverted. It's since been corrected on newer models. Your Sgt.'s carrying a piece of 40k history, right in his hand ;)

I would definitely want these Space Marines, which come from the old 'Space Marine Assault' starter set from around 2003.

The Scout Sergeant's Power Fist comes from the 2nd. Edition-era Marneus Calgar introduced around 1995.

I would love to receive these models through the contest.

The powerfist in question is from the 2nd edition pewter rendition of Marneus Calgar, sculpted by Jes Goodwin.

I would love to bolster my Space Wolves with these guys, the Power fist in question is from 2nd Ed Marneus Calgar, Chapter Master of the Ultramarines!

Caliban Lion said...

Nice scout conversion! I'd love to add that old school space marine squad to my pre-heresy Dark Angels. The power fist is from an older Marneus Calgar model.

NAOK9688 said...

I want this please :)I am sucker for old models since I have only been in the table top part of 40k for a year so I love having models from the past that show progression of that aspect of the game.

And the powerfist is from the old 2nd edition Marnius Calgar model. Loving the conversion and paint job you did.
