Not sure I'm in the right section for painting questions, but here goes:
I've been painting mini's for years but I'm always looking for new methods and techniques. I'm just preparing to paint a Marine army that I've been building over the last few months. Up until recently, I've mainly been painting a huge Eldar force that has ate up my slim amount of free time and I'm trying to come up with some new ideas/techniques for my Marines. My Eldar army is painted in a very clean and precise style, which in my opinion, lends itself to their aesthetic. However, with my Marines, I'm wanting to go with a more battle worn, rough approach to their look. Not to mention I'm hoping to paint this army much quicker! I've chosen the Relictors chapter because I love their fluff and their color scheme is right down my alley. Just looking for any Marine painting resources or advice anyone would like to share. Thanks a lot!
Relictors can be crazily easy to paint if you want them to be.
Here's a pic of a couple of my old Relictors.
Sorry about the poor photo quality. They're basically two layers of really quick sloppy drybrushing (both codex grey, though nowadays i'd probably add a light overtone of thinned fortress), then re-blacking the black areas makes for really fast speed painting, plus they look good without much highlighting so you could put it off until later or avoid it altogether. Also bear in mind I was like 12 when I painted these suckers. You could certainly do a better job. Very easy, fast, clean, sharp scheme IMO. And awesome fluff.
Hope this helped at least a tiny bit
