What to do with the left overs?

Alright, after finishing my Salamanders I have the following left. Most of it is from trades, bits, and random leftovers. I'm looking to see what kind of list or army that could be made with this. Space Wolves, Blood Angels, Templars, Dark Angels, Maybe Codex Marines?

In the first picture is Land Raider Redeemer, 3 drop pods, a speeder (MM/HF), attack bike, chaplain biker, 2 vindicators, parts to make a baal or lascannon predator, 5 lightning claw terminators, metal terminator captain. In the bits box there is 5 scouts, 5 terminators, 30 2nd edition marines, 14 assault marines. Not show is the 12 blood angels terminators from space hulk. I have bits to make any assault / heavy weapon needed.

So, what kind of new army do you think I could make with these left overs?

*Note a poll was added on the side!*

Razorback: The Resin Connection

Today I worked on my new command razorback. The turret is from Forgeworld and assembled without problem. I don't know the manufacture for the resin extra armor, but it did not fit very well at all.

The front plate required about 1/4" worth of resin to be scraped off to fit. Also, the corner armor pieces had 1/8" gaps around them. Overall a very poor fit, and required a few hours of work with putty and a knife to fit.

I used a 2 part epoxy resin to attach the parts together. I find the epoxy in a tube attaches models much better the super glue.

It will be painted up to transport my Liberian and his Sternguard escort. Should be a nice centerpiece to my mechanised marines.
