A while back, my friend gave me a Space Marine (from one of the starter sets), so I figure I'll try repainting him, to see how rusty (or better) my painting skills have gotten.
Nothing special, just a standard SM. My painting skills shall be showcased for better or for worse.
Updates soon, hopefully.
A nice old school model to work with as well, looking forward to seeing it finished.
What chapter are you going to try out? I look forward to seeing what you do with this.

I'm not necessarily going to be painting to a chapter (partially because i don't want to use an existing chapter, and am too lazy to create my own).
I've got a bit of progress; pictures soon.
It might have been because I simply primed upon his previous paint job (which had no primer to stand on).
When I look at the pictures It looks like you used very thick paint. I know everyone says it but it really helps to water down your paint. Again 2-3 thin coats looks better than 1 thick coat.
I think the problem is a rather thick primer, not the paints. Also, I needed to put on multiple coats of paint, because purple is such a thin color.
I've got a dose of these marines making up the numbers in my company. Something is not right somewhere, almost looks like textured undercoat, but could be the lighting, the picture, my gammy old eyes....
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
