Project Space Marine Breakdown pt.2: Fast Attack

For those of you reading the blog for the first time, Project Space Marine is an army that I'm working on consisting of 151 Space Marines, each one from a different chapter.

The story behind the force is that it is an arm of the Ordo Xenos, a sort of Deathwatch-in-training force.  It will be led by an Inquisitor with a Librarian as the 2nd HQ.  I enjoy painting single models that don't necessarily belong to any army that I have, and I wanted a way to have an army of random single models.

All 17 Force Organization slots will be filled with infantry.  The chapters that I have found particularly interesting or inspiring will be placed in the more elite squads or hold a higher rank in the tactical squads.

The Fast Attack section will be made up of the following chapters:

 Vanguard Vet Squad
-Blood Angels (sgt)
-Rainbow Warriors
-Raven Guard
-Silver Skulls
-Sons of Medusa
-Space Sharks
-Storm Giants
-Storm Lords
-White Minotaurs
-White Scars

Assault Squad 1
-Black Templars (sgt)
-Celestial Lions
-Dark Hands
-Doom Warriors
-Flesh Tearers
-Marines Exemplar
-Silver Eagles
-Sons of Guilliman
-Space Wolves

Assault Squad 2
-Doom Eagles (sgt)
-Black Wings
-Dark Hunters
-Mentor Legion
-Red Wolves
-Sable Swords
-Scythes of the Emperor
-Warrior Adepts
-White Consuls

Next time, I will outline which chapters will make up the Heavy Support section of the force.


  1. What an awesome idea for an army
    (and great painting practice!)

  2. A little sad that the Space Wolf didn't end up in a more elite slot. A Long Fang sergeant or a Wolf Guard either terminator or Vanguard/Sternguard veteran. But I guess you kind of made up for it with the Imperial Fist rocking the Terminator armor :)

    I think that it will be an awesome sight to see all of them finished. Really cool thing to do!
