Progress for today was good. A solid 4 hours of painting at least. More after the jump!
I started the detail work on some of the weapons and power packs, as well as the free hand on the squad insignia. The power packs have to glued on first with the heavy weapons because of the ammo belts and las wires running from the powerpack around the shoulder to the weapons.
I normally glue the arms on first, but I have to get the angle right to attach the ammo feeds to the powerpacks. The whole process will make more sense with more pictures.

I am still trying to finish these 3 Marines by Wednesday, which might still be possible. Tomorrow I should be able to get some arms glued on and weapons detailed and possibly attached as well. But as you know everything takes longer than expected when it comes to painting.
I should have another update tomorrow, so stay tuned for that. Thank you again for all the support and interest, and may the Emperor guide your painting endeavors!
