Second model from my Deathwatch set is complete. More angles and a cool group shot with more marines from my Imperium force after the jump.
I like Ultramarines. I love their roman vibe. The miniature designers have done a great job squeezing in so much detail. It is literally littered. There is no spare space and I love it.
I like the grenades and pouches around the back, it really helps reinforce their special operations role. The Deathwatch arm is a bright blue silver, and I have reason for my madness. I’m trying to make all my forces coherent by sharing paint recipes. In the pic below you’ll see this arm matched my Grey Knights paint scheme.
Other coherent themes are red weapons (apart from the Blood Angel Assault Marine, it would have been too much red), blue eye lenses and purity seals, ropes, handles etc are a purple. This is probably my favourite army I’ve painted to date, it’s so coherent and structured but the force organisation is literally anything I want, anything that takes my fancy. It’s so liberating.
Do you also do commission work?
No sorry. Thirdeyenuke and Sigur both do though.
Any chance you will rebase your grey knights? May sound like madness, but you already updated the paint scheme on you tyranids (last year?), so I thought I would ask anyway. :-p
I think the 32mm bases just look better on the power armoured models.
Before 32mm came out I updated my grey knights from Snow bases to desert to match my other Imperial Collections. Now the larger bases are out I know I'm going to have to do it again. Just got to get round to it.
I'm 50/50 on the Deathwatch arm but 100% love the rest of it, great work as usual. I'm looking forward to see what you do with the Salamanders Terminator; any chance you can share your recipe for that one?
I've already gone over it and darkened the shading on the blue steel arm. I wasn't digging it in the pictures despite it looking ok in the flesh.
