Making Use of Space Marine Heads

If you’ve visited the website frequently or ever looked to buy Space Marine Tactical parts you may notice that I have a huge surplus of space marine heads. This photos shows Head B and C from last week, before the recent restock. There’s about 700 head B and over 100 head C roughly in this photo.

I finally came up with an idea about how I can put them to good use: An Aegis Defense Line. The original idea was to make an Aegis Defense line for my Chaos Space Marines that consists of piles of dead Space Marines. The small parts of the aegis would be piles of space marine heads and spikes. I made a little tutorial showing how I made them.

First draw around a space piece of Aegis onto a piece of thick card

Start gluing them to the card facing random directions to form your aegis shape

Continue to pile them up to a height you are happy with

You may wish to add a few heads inside behind the pile also

then just add the spikes where you like. It's as easy as that!

  1. How may helmets did a full Aegis take? I’m looking at doing something similar for my CSM army, and even thinking about adding helmets to make a pile for the Quad-gun emplacement
