LE2 Imperial Space Marine – the first Games Workshop Space Marine in 1984

This guy was apparently the first in 1984, according to the 1997 catalogue! He turns up in the 1991 Blue catalogue as Bolter 5, part number 070121/42 which is right amongst the C100 marines as far as part numbers go.

White Dwarf 93 has an entire squad of just him:

  • Undercoat: Vallejo Mecha Black
  • Blue: Scale75 Art Cobalt Blue
  • Base: Scale75 Red Ochre, drybrushed with a mix of Red Ochre and Honey Moon Yellow, further drybrush with a little bit of The White mixed in
  • Gun: Carbon Black and Kimera’s Orange
