    Black Templars, painted 2005, photos taken yesterday (pic heavy)

    Ok, so I painted these guys back in Dec 2005 when I got back into the hobby from a slight 10year break (Space Hulk!). Anywhoooo, so the pics are a bit fuzzy and dark on account of not having access to a sweat camera, or photo editing tools. Stay with me, I'll get better at snapping pics of figs.

    Ok, so my templar army has seen me through a heap of victories, some draws and a few bitter, bitter losses, but all-in-all lots of fun. The fluff is that this chapter has close ties with the imperial fists, and therefore uses a bit o'gold trim. Now the freehand work on the helmets was, I thought, pretty original, until I saw some sweet painting examples of the same idea in WD. <sigh> and I was already done with a crusader squad so I kept it. anywhooo, I used vallejo game color paints, GW black primer, GW inks, testor's dull cotte (<-sp?) matte finish.

    my HQ selections... minor greenstuff work on a greyknight to make the Marshall (the red pauldron). the Chaplains were done in mostly "bone" color (rottingflesh tint to highlight) to stand out from the black armored troops. I was going for Baroque with the non-termie's crozius, but I think it looks overdone.

    ok so these forge world dozers were a fun addition. the checkered pattern is based on some german coat of arms. What was odd to find out is that the checks were rarely symmetrical, having a slight stagger to them

    Very nice tabletop quality army, although i would suggest toning down the dry brushing on the vehicles. Interesting color choice for the chaplains, even though it goes against the fluff of chaplains having black armor i really dig the bone color.

    good, solid advice about the color on the vehicles. When you see the things on the table, the grey seems muted. It is only with it blown to larger than life proportions that you see the streaks.

    The bone colored Chaplains are "nonfluffy" but, they just dont really stand out from their black clad buddies... plus at the time I was bored with black hehe.

    you have a very interesting technique for painting, but i like it! it is very unique but it turns out quite nicely and looks even better as an army...one suggestion, highlighting black with slightly watered down codex grey will do wonders for your chaplains
