Oh Macey, hi. Those Marines look very good. I like the colour changes you have made to GW's colour scheme. The banner is well done and the red works well in the background. I think you could give them a name of your own choosing and say they are a chapter that is related to the Black templars. The poses and use of metallics is very good too. I also like the sword and the bases are very interesting.
I think the area that you should do some work on is the black. At the moment you have a great deal of strong whites on these models. This brightness is making the black look a little flat and also making it hard to see the details. You should try to apply stronger highlights to the edges of the black to get more of the hape of the armour to be revealed.
Here is an article on painting armour black which may help. GW Online : Warhammer 40,000 : Space Marines : Painting Black Armour
Do more, show us big things like dreadnoughts and that new burny Landraider.
Cheers leechy, There will be no more marines done in this scheme, it was just an idea i had and it wouldnt get out of my head so I painted them just to exercise the idea! Im over the moon with the terminator, he's got the best paint job ive done so far. The black does look a little flat but it has 3 shades of grey in it. I tried bringing it up another shade but then it stopped looking black. Ill give your advice a go if i do any more black marines tho.
On an aside, if anyone wants to paint white, id advise not to undercoat black first! It took me hours to get a decent white finish!
Excellant stuff, the sword and banner look great, (not in the mood to critisise)
CHK CHK BOOM!
an army of these would look fantastic! the only crit is the black, but you've alread answered that
Back in the zone!
Outstanding work , well done.
I really like white space marines.
I AM BOOMER!
Assassin's Creed is awesome. I can understand why you would want to paint some SMs after the knights templar. They look outstanding by the way.
