In celebration of the 30th  anniversary of the Space Marine we are running a contest for one of the 30th anniversary Limited Edition Space Marines!

Each person will choose a model of their liking and 5 random paints using random.org and the attached list. All 5 colors pulled for the challenge must be incorporated into the model.
