Having completed a bunch of Blood Angels and some Dropzone Commander models, I decided it was time to do some work on the Executioners. My first stop was to paint 4 more Marines with lascannons for my 9th Company Devastator squad. I originally built the squad with missile launchers, but the advent of super heavies has made me want some heavier firepower. My Devastator squad with lascannons has always performed well, so another could only be better.
After that, I decided that I wanted another Tactical Marine with meltagun so that I could arm all three of my squads with them. From there, it seemed like an obvious choice to make another flamer Marine so that I could arm all of my squads with flamers if I wanted as well. It made sense at the time.
Since they both have a Mk 5 left shoulder pad, I used the Executioner symbol overlaid on the Tactical arrow. I came up with this pattern by accident on a previous Marine, but I really like how it looks when I need to put both markings on one shoulder.
Next up will be some more Executioners, in an attempt to open up my options with the new codex.
