Purge Cardinals Part 8.

Today/yesterday was hot! I like the heat but at 42 degrees I’m happy to stay indoors and cut up little plastic men.

I haven’t done anything with my Purge Cardinals Space Marine Army since September last year.

Theres no rush on this project.

Back then I showed you a couple of tall (Primaris) dudes who found their way into the army.

Todays post is going back to the “old school” looking Space marines. I really dig them.

I made Nine troops today.

Even though they’re a bit more standard I try not to repeat any pose. I can’t stand static poses! Growl!!!

I hope you like them.


This last Marine is holding a grenade in his left hand if you look closely.


Not sure about colour scheme now. I was going to go with a sort of dirty turquoise but now I’m thinking white. Any thoughts?

Cheers gang

    1. Haha yep I don’t miss England’s weather AT all. Funny story about pink. My brother in law and I were lining up to get into a club one one night and a dude in front of us was wearing a pink shirt. My bro in law, being a somewhat antagonistic fella, I asked the dude “why are you wearing a pink shirt mate?” The dude replied “it’s not pink it’s salmon!” At which point the whole Que burst into laughter hahahahaha.

    1. Thanks man. All I can say, in regards to paint, is that I am to have paint on them this year. Do you think white would look cool. Or maybe even black and white ala black Templars. I just think there’s something a bit more ummm “Royal” or something with these guys.


  1. 42. That’s way beyond my comfort zone. I prefer something like 28 when it’s warm but you can still dress and behave like a grown up. πŸ˜‚

    MkIII Armour is so cool. Coolest mark of all, no doubt.

  2. Very cool mate, I have no suggestions on colour though, all the good colours are bagged really! How about Khaki? Or Brown? No one ever does brown marines!

    Oh, and bugger that heat for a game of soldiers – I’d be in a cold bath for the day.

  3. Good old Iron Armour – the best looking Mk by far. Shame GW haven’t released truescale Iron Armour yet although hopefully the day will come. As for painting why not white with a few turquoise panels? Can’t think of an official chapter with that scheme but it would work nicely together. The turquoise would give it a nice splash of brightness and colour whilst the white would give you room to get some gritty weathering and staining in.

  4. It’s so nice having indoor hobbies for days when it’s either too hot, too cold, etc. out. πŸ™‚ Much better than going out and roasting in that hot weather you guys have over there or freezing in our current winter wasteland over here. πŸ˜›
    Nice looking bunch here!

    1. Cheers love. As much as I love long lazy days in the house I love the outdoors. I’m very fortunate in the fact that I work outside. I’ll work in extreme heat, cold or rain. It doesn’t bother me in fact I like the challenge of it. I’ve had days where I am literally drenched in sweat and other days where I am soaked to the bone from rain haha.

      1. I wish I was like that. I’m such a baby about the weather. I have total Goldilocks syndrome where I’m just not having it if it’s “too hot” or “too cold” outside. It’s gotta be just right, pretty much. I actually really enjoy grey gloomy days where it’s a little cool, but not too cold. Must be one of the reasons I like fall so much. πŸ™‚
