Hey fellas. I've decided to give my Space Marine army a face lift and I've decided on the Imperial Fists. Never painted these guys before so I'd like some feedback. I decided to go with a simple, bright scheme without too much black or red to really show the true colour of the Imperial Fists. The complementary colour is on their weapons only.
What do you think?
I think they look pretty good.
I too am doing some fists currently. It's going to be a termie heavy company, so yellow is going to be a bit harder for me, as there aren't many recesses in the armor to give contrast to the figure.
Still, your yellow looks impressive. I can only see some places that need a touchup. For instance, the nonhelmeted marine's armor on his rear. It also looks like his transition between the foot armor and the greave needs some ink or darker color to show depth.
THe heavy Bolter guy, on the other hand... I feel needs a little less yellow. It's all good untill you hit his Heavy Bolter backpack. He basically looks like those "rumble bee" yellow dodge ram pickups. a whole lotta yellow on one place, a beacon from a mile away. I suggest a little less yellow on any heavy weapons you're using.
Other than that, watch out for the flash reminants that I can spot. It sticks out soo bad on yellow. I know from experience.
they look quite good. as i've planned on giving my orks some yellow warpaints, i'd like to ask you how did you achieve that yellow. yellow is quite hard to do well, as it isn't too covering, especially on a black basecoat (though my orks are basecoated white)
Spoiling is a way of life!
Try doing a yellow ink wash over the yellow to bring it out a little more other than that and some touchups they dont look bad at all.
To do the bidding of the god of decay death and corruption is to be rid of all things that makes you weak only in return for the control of your soul!
those are great
post some vechicles and commanders
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
Nice. I like Yellow color scheme. Its good that you have some small details blue, like the eye. It really stands out. I think you have made good use for the yellow colors.
Do you find it hard to paint yellow? (I think its one of the more easy colors to paint)
Good looking models there Boba, you did well with such a hard colour to paint. I like them but they seem extremely flat truth be told but then it is rather hard to shade yellow so we can let you off on that I think.
As always Boba, they look great...:yes:
By day he fought with sword and shield.....
By night he fought with pen and parchment.....
He was....The Warrior Poet.......
Fear the ANZAC Clan!!!!!
ORDER OF THE SHADOWY FLAME!!!
Do you have uber micro...????
Looks good! Great work.
Hey they look pretty snazzy Boba.
Yellow is so damn hard to paint and you have done a pretty nifty job.Although in some places the paint is just a tad thick.
Also a few more highlightes here and there and you have some nice fists!
