Outrider Marines

This post is for an old project done back when the Games Workshop Outrider Program was still around (oh were those the days).  Not all of these are finished.  But, I thought you might like to see what we were up to.

As a group, the Outriders had selected a color scheme, iconography, and founding chapter to build upon.  The goal was to get members to put together their own forces during the year and then bring them to Games Day for a massive show of enthusiastic hobby support (and overwhelming force).  Unfortunately, before the year was out, Games Workshop decided to redo the program.  The ensuing chaos quickly led to the demise of not just the Outrider Marine Project but the volunteer game promoter program entirely.

I am glad to say that he friendships forged over the years while travelling the country to roll dice and spread the word are still strong and most of us still look fondly on those halcyon days.  When time, gas money, and real life align, getting together at a convention is cause for celebration, reminiscing, and revisiting of old tabletop rivalries.  I hope that your hobby experience lets you forge new friendships.  Our hobby shouldn’t be just about ticks in the win/loss columns.

Without further pontification, a few bits and bobs from my small selection of “Outrider” Space Marines.

    That’s a great looking selection of figures. Do you have any plans to turn them into a full army detachment?
