At the end of the day I like the modeling aspect of 40k. The conversions the tricks and trades of modeling I have learned through out the years. The Raptors are not your standard wear bright colors marines. They believe in camo which allows me to paint the units differently to fit the War zone which in my case is Khymara. So some units will be standard green other responding units will be desert camo to signify their later arrival to the planet. I'm looking forward to restarting this project as I do love the Raptors. I have so many planned projects involved with them from more predator ideas, the horde of Land Speeders, tons of Scouts, some stunty marines in various flavors, and It is still a toss up for my Primaris.
I spent last night looking at my collection of what I would steal from my Crimson Fists. and I realized they are too blingy for Raptors. So time to build new models. I am looking for some cheap Tau parts and bits to add to my bases for them.
