Space Marines

by admin on March 24, 2011

in LEGO Armies

Here I show you my Space Marines. They are not related to the Halo or Warhammer video game characters, they are just generic cool guys performing missions in outer space.

I’m not so much of a LEGO sci-fi builder (check out Nannan’s work for that!), but I wanted to build this highly customized army to showcase some of Hazel’s amazing custom accessories.

Here is an overall front view of the army (you can click on any of the pictures for a larger view):

Here is a side view of the whole army:

And here are the individual guys:

HELMET: by Amazing Armory
ARMOR: by Amazing Armory
WEAPON: by BrickForge
SHIELD: by Amazing Armory

I painted the helmet, armor and shield with silver Testors hobby paint. The Brickforge gun is customized with modified translucent-green LEGO elements.

This is the smoothest armor by Hazel and could be used for many realistic and fantasy themes. It fits LEGO minifigs seamlessly! (By the way; all three of the armor pieces from Hazel have a standard LEGO-size stud at the center of the back to attach various LEGO or custom accessories as you can see here.)

HELMET: by LEGO
ARMOR: by Amazing Armory
WEAPON: from LEGO parts

This is my favorite armor from Hazel. The small dagger tucked into the shoulder-armor is such a sweet touch!

Although this piece is based on the armor of the “Deep Eyes” military unit of the Final Fantasymovie, with the proper paint-job it can also fit samurai warriors well. This armor-piece was originally dark gray, but I painted it silver to match the other guys. Note how perfectly LEGO’s silver finish on the helmet matches Testors’ silver paint.

HELMET: by Amazing Armory
ARMOR: by Amazing Armory
WEAPON: from LEGO parts

The helmet on this guy is just amazing! Note the cut-outs for the eyes. I have used a standard LEGO head, but I have seen other LEGO-fans using trans-red or other translucent color heads, giving the minifig a futuristic look. Again; the helmet and armor is painted silver by me.

ARMOR: LEGO jetpack & Brickforge pauldron
WEAPON: from LEGO parts

I customized the front of the jetpack on this guy a bit with a touch of silver paint, and translucent-green “light” made from the tip of a LEGO antenna.

Hope the photos here give you a good idea of what is possible with Hazel’s custom pieces. Let me know what you think in the Comment section below! :D

Woa! These are so cool! I actually really like the silver color! It highlights all the details on the armor pieces! Testors, huh? ;)

Thanks, TomTom! Yep, Testors! I actually really like this paint! It goes on nice and thin, and the colors match LEGO really well! :)

This is a little off topic, but there is a LEGO® CUUSOO project called “Space Marines”, ( like these guys you made) which is at http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/5127 and I was wondering if you could write a post for it. Since a lot of people look at TBB, it would help it get the 2200 supporters it needs.

J.C., yes I have seen that project, and I do like it. I’m quite busy right now, but I would be ahppy to write about it. If you don’t see a post about it in the next 3 weeks or so, you can send me a reminder. ;)
