I have wanted to paint a Space Marine for a while now and the release of the Heroes set gave me the perfect excuse! I loved Dawn of War back in the day, so naturally I chose the Blood Ravens for my colour scheme. The freehand symbol turned out more like a pigeon though... Edge highlighting was a real pain. I now have nothing but respect for anyone who does a whole army of these! 😵
I tried to cut some corners by highlighting the red armour with beige without any colours in between and then toning it down with a glaze. In the end I probably spent more time tidying up the edges than I would have if I'd used more colours 😂
I recently tried to reproduce the iconic style of 'Eavy metal painting on brother Promethor
The project was to collect all the space marine heroes (Gotcha!) and paint them like this. I did my best but it took so long that I' m no longer sure I'll stick to my original plan! It is anyway a very good practice. Darren Latham said in an interview that painting space marines helps with neatness and sharp lines as you can't afford to be messy. That's how I felt and I have now even more respect for the whole Eavy metal team than before.
Not really one to put brush to plastic anymore but I couldn’t resist painting the Shokkjump Dragsta in red! Does anyone know how to rust metallics other then the typhus/ryza combo? Any help would be greatly appreciated. WIP
