Hi everyone, it’s been a while since my last post. Times have been very busy and hectic but luckily I’m still able to get some hobby done. For a while, I’ve wanted to look for an easy Space Marine scheme that isn’t time-consuming. I really love Paul Norton’s Iron Ravens and how he has painted the silver metallics so I wanted to give it a shot thus I chose the Dark Angels successor chapter the Guardians of the Covenant to try it on.
The recipes for the different colours are very standard, I tried my best to be as neat as possible because with such simple techniques I knew I had to keep the highlighting very precise. I tried to make my own transfers for the chapter symbol without much luck and success after applying them to the shoulder pad with Mr Marks Softer. That’s where I really started to appreciate the quality of the Games Workshop and Forgeworls transfers. In the end, I had to paint the chapter symbol myself. There could be improvements but I’m happy with it thus far.
Overall I’m quite pleased with the scheme and want to see where it takes me. Hopefully, in the near future, I’ll have some squads of Guardians of the Covenant Space Marines or Primaris Marines to show. Let me know what you guys think below in the comments. That’s it for now. Until next time take care, everyone!
