I finished painting my assault marines this weekend. So half of them are now done. Got a pretty ok recipe for the colors now. Should be able to finish the last five fairly efficiently. Started to use Astronomican Grey as a base for certain parts and then hit it with Sunburst Yellow. That brightens it up real nice and good and lightens up on the big patches of yellow. Hopefully you can see it :)
This one ended up with a flash.
While this one ended up without a flash. Can't decide which one turned out the best. I do need a better camera though:) (it is a theme on this blog it seems)
This is a bit Beatles inspired (hint for the age-impared, look up Abbey Road). I still need to give some cool effect to the sergeant's power sword. Some lightning or similar. To show how bad ass the guy actually is :)
Also note the green assault crosses. Looks pretty good when I got all five of them painted. At least I think so:) Feel free to have opinions in the comments!
And the final shot shows the weathering pretty well. Just have one weather effect, but it turned out pretty ok. The sot from the engines looks pretty realistic, but wow you had to be careful with the black to not overdo it. I really didn't want to repaint:)
So power sword, Imperial Fists decals on the shoulder, some Purity Seal, and I think that I will finish with 'ard coat on the eyes. I hope that it will turn out! I also need to pimp them up with some extra purity seals and the likes. Especially the sergeant.
Trying to finish up the tacticals as well. Put together an extra melta guy and two sergeants (power swords). They will be next on the list.
Oh what do you guys think of the bases?
