Just wondered what you SM Army commanders out there did yours as.

I did used to paint them Yellow, then another colour, Brown I think, then dry brush bleached bone over it, but my local gaming shop is out of bleached bone O__O *cry*

So Im thinking of doing them a different colour. I was thinking Black on the top parts of the Winged crests, with white for the wings themselves, maybe drybrushed a soft grey?

But any other ways would be great.

I made my eagles the easy way. Painted them white then applied thinned down black ink. They didn't turn out that bad in my eyes.

Well, my marines are Codex grey with Lightning Bolt blue shoulder plates so I paint the chest eagle (and all other eagle motifs white with black wash.

If it helps my colours are all blue.

I want something different, as I think the ultramarines have a yellow kind of chest eagle.

So the Black on the top parts of the Winged crests, with white for the wings themselves, maybe drybrushed a soft grey might work....
Can anyone else shoot some ideas at me for blue armour?

I have SW's so i paint the crests boltgun and then wash them with yellow/gold, it doesn't turn out to bad, and definately beats the plain gold.

My Marines are silver and blue, so to contrast I give them a blood red chest eagle, then give it an ink wash with red. Not sure what to drybrush with next, maybe gold. Or bronze.

Can I ask, Jodfrey, what in merry hell made you decide to bump this thread from last year? :blink:

to be honest have no idea, probably checking what people were viewing at the time and it appeared semi interesting, and didn't check the date, obviously.

Well as long as its been bumped I will tell what I do
A grey primer
Then I paint a coat of sunburst yellow then I dry brush black, looks good and when you do it right it has alot of texture, looks like it dose. I just started doing this I use to paint it just yellow but this looks so much better
