Hopefully i get this done and it will be in this years gamesday. To start i have some pics of a marine, currently a wip and thers gonna be some chaos some dreadnaughts and some suprises.
diorama pictures by kylehj - Photobucket
the images are pretty big files so i have provided a link to my album, tell me what you think and how i can improve i've never actually painted an ultramarine before.
It's looks to be a good start there, I'd suggest some Scorched Brown/Chaos Black washes aimed at the crevices in the SM's armour like the rivets and the areas where the armour overlaps, also some extreme highlights could be applied to the whole model to help it go 'pop' as at the moment, it looks like you've achieved the standard painting level on him, as there's so much that you could do to really make him stand from the crowd. Like adding chips to the edges of the armour, scarring on the SM's flesh, maybe even tatoos if you could manage it, having spent cases from his bolter/bolt pistol; little touches like that can really bring a model to life.
I really like the face, though in-all, the photos are a little dark to make out the details, perhap you could take pictures of him outside or in a lightbox so that I and other members could give you better help .
You said that you are doing a Diorama? What else are you going to put in the scene/battle, or is it going to be a single miniature?
What Gamesday are you going to? I'm going to the UK one as my brother loved it so much! I've just about started painting my entry so that I can get in early like last year, we got in 40 minutes early - good times.
Good luck with your entry!

Hi thanks for the tips i'll attempt to apply them, and yeah i'm goin to gamesday uk. The miniatures that will be included in the diorama:
The captain which you have seen
2x chaos terminator lords
chaos dreadnaught all undivided i might add.
I'll take some better pictures later aswell and good luck with your entry.
Looked very good to me, nice work. Agree with all Kai itzas comments, but a gamesday diorama is way above my abilities. Good luck with yours sir.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
