Sons of Orar
A Space Marine Project Log

This thread will chronicle my progress on a new Space Marine army from start to finish. Though the history of the Sons of Orar has been lost, what is known is that they revere Orar, an Ultramarines Captain who won great renown in the wake of the Horus Heresy, and claim him as their spiritual patriarch.

Why a project log?
I am a notoriously slow painter and prone to flutter between projects. I'm hoping that by steadily logging my progress I will be able to stick with it and see it through. Be warned, updates will be sporadic and occasionally few and far between. Nonetheless, thanks for reading!

Colour scheme
I have already done some test models and found a simple, effective technique that works well. I am aiming for a good quality tabletop standard. I will be using the following paints for the following areas:

Army Painter Red, P3 Khador Red, Blazing Orange, Baal Red Wash, Devlan Mud Wash
Pads, Helmets
Skull White, Fortress Grey, Vallejo Ghost Grey
Chaos Black, Adeptus Battlegrey, Codex Grey
Boltgun Metal, Badab Black, Chainmail
Iyanden Darksun, Gryphonne Sepia, Burnished Gold, Shining Gold, Mithril Silver
Eyes, Gems, etc.
Dark Angels Green, Snot Green, Scorpion Green, Skull White
Graveyard Earth, Kommando Khaki, Bleached Bone, Skull White
Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown, Snakebite Leather​

So that's it for the introduction
I've already had a ton of Forgeworld bits and most of the plastic kits shipped, even completed a few test models, so in the next couple of days I'll start blogging properly and get a load of in progress pictures up.

I will also cover how I plan to solve the Shoulder Pad symbol issue and some methods of converting the older marks of armour for some variation. If people are keen on the colour scheme maybe throw in a step-by-step tutorial. I've got some scenery on the go too and maybe that will get lumped into this log.

Somewhere along the line, there might even be a pet picture!

...since it's considered rude to start a project log off without any pictures at all, I will leave you with my test model: Company Champion in Mk3 armour. Shield is by Scibor with the V scraped off and replaced by a FW Brass Etch Ultramarine symbol. I would take a more up to date picture, but am at work.
