2011, A unit a week

This is the start of my resolution.  Each week, I will paint up some kind of wargame unit.  I have hundreds of units for half a dozen different games, so the supply will not be difficult to come by.  Each unit will consist of between one and any number of individual models, all making up a single unit.  Each week will see a unit from possibly the same game/same army, maybe different game, potentially just a different army.  I make no promises for consistency, I have the attention span of a small child.

Without further ado, here's the first week.

I have chosen to finish the Ultramarines, 2nd Company, 1st Tactical Squad.  Here's some information from the current Space Marine Codex:
Squad Leader:  Veteran Sergeant Solinus
Moniker:  the Indomitable
This is for a miniatures wargame known as Warhammer 40,000, produced by Games Workshop.  For more information, you know what to do.
This squad comes armed with standard bolters, the specialist wields a flamer, the heavy wields a heavy bolter, and the sergeant himself is armed with a power fist.  They are not wearing helmets because I imagine this squad, being honored as the first squad of the company, sometimes bravely show the foe the face of victory.  They are also issued with a Rhino armored transport, making them ideally equipped for urban combat.
