A few important things about this. Firstly this is the first marine who's white I have painted using single, unshaded lines of shadow grey and nothing else. Previously I was shading with SWgrey but consensus here was it was too light - I throw myself on your judgement of this one to get some feedback on the method.
Two - this is the first of ten marines I'm doing with the STUPIDLY pricey riot shields from spares (three quid!!). Not all the others will have the stick, I'm going to mix bolt pistols, plasma and chainswords. Note the pistol holster on the right leg.
Three - here's my chapter markings in the flesh for the first time \o/
Four my camera is too good - it picks up WAY to many errors :'(
Five, I really like the look, it looks better than I thought it would, even if the pose needs work. I also reckon the colour scheme on the shield came out rather well. Not pleased with the shading of the white, it's too messy in these pics + looks little OTT to me - dunno maybe I'm being picky.
Click the images for big!
Any feedback is, as always, greatly appreciated.

they look awesome other than the fact that the grey looks a little messy so i would goback and celan it up
Why is the pistol holster painted blue!??!?!?
Anyway, It's good, grey is a little messy, the highlights are a little to thick.
Yeah looks good but with the grey why didn't you use ink??? Watered down Blue ink with a tiny bit of black ink gives the same effect but much neater.
I think it looks good. Don't mess with this model anymore and leave it as is. Try if you want another way on something else. I would be proud if it was my work.
Never tried the ink on the blue - anything that looks a bit neater has got to be good however, I won't touch this one - but I am about to order 4 more shields so I'll give it a go on the next one. Any tips on the blue inking?
The highlights are a *bit* thick - but they aren't so bad in real life, I need to be a little neater - this one was the fastest marine I've painted at about 5 hours!
Last off the holster is blue because I'd normally paint it red to match weapons - but next to the big red shield it seemed OTT.
However as always I'd like more feedback, so keep it coming if there is any
Looks good. I would make the white color more thin before applying it to the armor first though. It looks a little to thick. Maybe make the blue highlights thinner.

this looks good, a nic wtered blue ink would do well, the paint looks a tiny bit thick, I love the concept and model, and it is nicely painted in general.
The gold grey knight man. These are hardy men who like cheese.
Ever thought of how cheese was found?:
`` I say sah, the milk in this barrel smells foul!``
``Oooohhh, give it a go!``
''Quack, damn you!''

I think you mis-understood me. I ment use blue and black ink together for the white shading. Inkning is really easy cos it automatically fills the gaps with perfectly straight edges, Make sure you water is down though cos otherwise the ink will semi-stick wherever you put it and that looks really tacky. I would do it like thins

Ink Again (Cleans up edges after highlighting)
Thanks again all - this scheme is getting better by the model - this is marine #11, also have a LS to show off when I photograph it this weekend.
Kmjar2, thx again also for this - I'd only worry about the grey being a little too much as it were. Are you suggesting (please bear with me, it's too early )Painting grey, inking, then doing the paneling method to cover the majority of the plates in white?
