Got these 5 finished off a little bit ago and finally had chance to photo them. They are 5 normal Marines from my home brew Chapter Themplars of Righteousness. They are a mix of mark 3 iron armour with current backpack and boltguns. Really like painting them the armour is so nice to work on … Continue reading Marines loaded up
So the first 5 marines of my "old school" style tactical squad is now done. Stook to my standard colour scheme of black with white shoulders and blue on the helmets to nominate tactical. I'm really pleased with them, they seem to have the slightly gritty look I was going for. Also the black armour … Continue reading Old school half way there
Been working on these lately, not done yet but really getting there. Think I just need to tidy up the black after doing all those silver dots then eyes and script on the white areas. When there done I'll get a better pic in a light box, my quick card painting light set up is … Continue reading Old style marines
My first Primaris unit is done, its been a challenge really and not one I expected. All coming about from the fact that my normal paint scheme did not work. So I had to adjust it a fair bit and do (I should really say try) edge highlighting for the first time. So here they … Continue reading And they are done
Managed to finish off my sargent tonight. I was happy with the white as its the first time I've done it this way and it seems to work. Simple method really, just one of the slightly off white base coats that have just come out, Corax White I think, the light brown wash but painted … Continue reading A sorted Sarg.
Got the base coat falt colours on my sargent for the Primaris squad I've been working on recently. I invert the locations of black and white on my space marine sargents for normal marines so took the same approach here. I think this colour scheme should work when I've put some definition on the white … Continue reading The start of a sarg.
Got the last "normal" marine done for my first Primaris squad done. More or less same process as the previous ones, and as a results starting to feel a little more confident with the edge highlighting on the black. These models do all have there own little unique bits like this guys little bone relic … Continue reading For 4.
Marine number 3 got finished tonight, which is good, still managing to move this squad along. I would of done more painting but I've actually played some games recently instead which is good to keep the old hobby enthusiasm going. I enjoyed painting him, apart from perhapps the gery edging on the black, not a … Continue reading Slow but steady
Got a game planned for this weekend, and we have decided to do the relic mission from the 40K main rule book. For those that don't know the point of this mission is to get a item the "relic" from the middle of the table and keeping it away from your opponent. So I figured … Continue reading Its what you fight for that counts!
Space Marines were my first force when I started playing 40K, and I made my own little Chapter with its own colour scheme, the Templars of Righteousness! Better part of 2 decades later the same force is still going with the same colour scheme. In this army I've never been overly precious of the models, … Continue reading The Primaris have finally landed
