    ok heres the deal: i'm painting an ultramarines army and i noticed in all the guides and pics of ultramarines the chest eagles are always yellow and I want to paint mine gold. and if I do paint it gold should I do it on all of the models or just the sergeants and chaplains etc.? Input would be most appreciated!

    I'd say go with what you like. If you think they all look good with gold; then paint them all gold. I also play Ultramarines and have my sargeants eagles painted gold and the rest of marines yellow. Completely up to you though.

    I think I'll also do the sergeants gold and the rest yellow. What kind of yellow do you use?

    I use gold on all of mine, however I follow it with a brown ink wash to tone it down a little. I also paint mine a little darker than codex examples to try and take the edge off the "cartoonish" look of smurf blue. If you like the gold, use it on all of them.

    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    Also, if you want, highlight the edges with silver mixed with gold to suggest weathering.

    I would say that yellow on the marines with gold on the sargeants and higher ranked officers make the higher ranked peeps seem more important. Just my say on it. As for primer, it will be very hard to do the details on the chaplain if coated in black, so i don&#39;t really think you save very much time primering with black.

    i&#39;ve got an ultramarine army and i paint all their sholder pads silver. For some of them, i paint the pad blue, then drybrush with boltgun metal sometimes inking it later. This gives a cool aged armour effect which i think is really neat.
