Hi all, Banzai1000 here with the Imperial Space Marine, a limited edition miniature released to celebrate GW’s 30th anniversary of their first Space Marine model.
I was lucky enough to get the last model out of twenty in my local GW store. I had a lot of fun building and painting this model, it took me one week (I’m a damn slow painter actually).
I decided to paint him in the colors of the Imperial Fists, as I wanted to go for a chapter of the First Founding.
Yellow is a colour that is known to be difficult to paint, so I was up to the challenge and I am quite happy with the outcome.
I used Averland Sunset as base colour, mixed with Orange and Mournfang Brown for shading. For the highlights I mixed in Flash Gits Yellow and Sreaming Scull. The base was done using Agrellan Earth.
What do you think about the model? Leave a comment and let us know. I’m planning to do some more special characters (e.g. the web exlusive Captain…) as some small diorama scenes, so stay tuned.
Great job, I just finished my 30th Anniversary marine too! I opted to match my grey Relictors, but glad I didn't choose a yellow army, I suck at yellow. Great chipping and weathering on the feet.
I've just finished cleaning and assembling the model myself, and found that 32mm base a bit large for the model, so downsized to the more traditional 25mm. Mine will likely end up Mentor Legion in color scheme.

This is great. I still have some RTB01 marines, painted and unassembled. Also planning some yellow Tau soon, so this is good to see.
