I was just looking through my rulebook(bgb)when i came across the picture of the ultramarines at the breach of corinth(dont quote me on that)
And i came across something i never noticed before,the chest eagles on there armour are painted on and are not metal add ons to the armour chest.
After seeing this i thought wouldnt that look uber sweeterific on my up coming squad of veterans.
Soooo my question to you all knowing members of the great and mighty librarium how in gods name will i paint the eagles on??
oh and if anyone has done this before and has some pics please be a pal and show me them.
Thankin' you in advance your friendly local chaos paul

Any chance on getting a page reference for the picture? Not that I really expect to be able to give you any sort of advice, I'd just like to see what you're talking about. Thanks.
yeah no problem its page....hmmm.Page 11 the mad battle with the huge banner in the background,the ultramarine closest to you is the one i was looking at.

I am not seeing it. The chest eagles look 3 dimensional to me.
At any rate - I don't see why you couldn't paint them in any color you wanted. So painting them in "realistic" colors sounds good to me.

Fluff-wise, the chest eagles can be portrayed in many ways. They can be anything from painted on, to carved into the armour to bolted on to melted on or formed in gold. Go for whatever you think is coolest. Space Marines are exellent for converting. They are an army of individual 'knights' who each have their own heraldry and history.
Good luck with painting them on. Looking forward to seeing the finished results...
I suggest gold with with a brown wash or chestnut wash (not sure if theres a differences).
Yeah there is a diff between brown and chestnut inks. Brown ink is well, brown. While chestnut ink is more of an orangy colour. So use brown ink if you want more of a bronzy colour and chestnut for a lighter tinny colour over gold.
When life gives you lemons, shut up and eat your damn lemons.
k well i say do both then, light on the chestnut then heavy on the brown.
Also each suit of armor has been passed down from sm to sm so there could be more than one type of herldy or symbol on the armor.
