Ok so here i am again, with yet another of my painting ideas/questions.
My goal, is for a space marine to be painting black, then have silver bits that looks like chips or scrapes in his armour. Now im just wondering if anyone has tried this or know of any pictures that illustrate this. They would be a great help to me.
Thankyou for your tollerance towards my lack of knowledge
ah nice....i seen this link awhile ago, but forgot about it. This helps quite abit.
While looking around I have seen some pictures of Black Legion Chaos Marines...and i was thinking of doing something similar, but different. I wanna have black as the main colour with chainmail edging and stuff. Would the Black Legion be closest to this desired effect?
You can always paint as you want, you don't have to follow the colors in the Codex.
yea well i dont play chaos, i was creating a DIY chapter, which are based around the BL colour scheme. I was just wondering what other guides or images are out there that i can look at to get ideas to run with that scheme. The Black Templars are usally black with white or grey, not much use, where as the Black Legion have silver/gold on them, more along the lines of my desired effect.
hmm yea i seen that...its good. I think ill run with something like that. Just abit messyer. I like the look of the black and the silver, hopefully i can transfer the image in my head onto my model.
Thanks for your help
No problem, be sure you post photos of them later.
No Rep 'whoring' please.

will do...my greatest fear is that they will look to "boring". But ill try it anyway.
IMO I think the Black Legion is a really boring color-theme, but I got it as you were to play Loyalist marines and then there are ample oppurtunities to paint prayers, litanies and so on on their armour and make purity seals as well. They would be a little like the new BT, but I am sure you can find out some way to "personal".
