Sup dudes. I had started painting a few marines in this color scheme:
However, i am also wanting to do more than just this color scheme, but i dont really have a good idea for a new one. Im thinking something with either blue, darker grey, emperors children, Death Guard, Alpha Legion, or something else.
Ideas? Suggestions? Would really appreciate them
Thanks in advance,
the one you painted has nice colors but it ends up looking a bit plastic. Maybe you should darker all the colors you are using now.
I'm assuming that this is a testfig and not a finished model. It's an awkward angle to get a good idea of the detail but it looks like it could use some detailing to break up the rather broad expanses of gray. I've never personally been into grey schemes because they frequently look unpainted, particularly from a distance. It has promise but I'd need more pics and definitely more detailing to be sure.
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.
Not all the Emperors Children turned coat. We will redeem our name.
Try giving a black wash over the lighter gray areas, I did some gray marines once, and a black wash really helped bring out detail, weather them a little and make them look less spue-fresh.

Perhaps darken the grey, and then highlight the blues significantly, as it is the model has a good basic color scheme, but doesn't really "pop". Good start, though.
IMO, i would never use Grey as a base color. Like some one said "It makes the model look unpainted at a distance". What i would do is use space wolves Grey and highlight with a second Grey color. space wolves Grey is a very strange Grey, and its almost blue so you can highlight it with Grey and people wont think its unpainted, a word of warning don't paint the whole model with this... some people may think there space wolves...
Just keep working on it and it will be awesome in no time!
i really like the heavy bolter marine on your photobucket, it looks great...id try to highlihgt the blue and grey a bit more though
chaos marines have the chaos gods on their side, but space marines have games workshop on theirs
