Due to reasons, I've been sucked back into the 40K galaxy. I got some push-fit assault marines as a test. I carved off the Ultramarine sigil and- further demonstrating self-loathing tendencies- painted these up as Lamenters. These new-scale marines are huge but rather nice.
Lamenters are an interesting chapter, successors to the Blood Angels and troubled by the Black Rage. They are melancholic, high-functioning depressives. Similar to the Salamanders, they are protective of civilians and are not as dogmatic as their peers- their sigil is a bleeding heart! My favourite aspect of them is that they are cursed by bad luck. Everything they do goes badly and has negative consequences. They are experts at doomed last stands. Perfect for my dice.
