Marine Sargent

Well this chap was a couple of firsts for me (i think).


I painted a red thing (that was not a purity seal)

And i think that was my first attempt at some “cloth”, also note the the off centre transfer on the banner ^^ love power fists and this was my first.




Venerable Dreadnought

So with the tactical marines done i i had the choice of the terminator captain or the dread, ofc i picked the dread!

So i took all the things i knew what to do so far and did this.


The only thing i really did “new” on this one was the large flat areas of armour,

They were base coated, dry brushed, washed then i went over the “middle” of the plate with the base paint. you can see it here.

Be be totally honest think i got my light/dark the wrong way round, but when your in a hole best to keep on digging! One thing about painting like this is that it does give some definition with out being too tricky to do.


Bolter Tactical Marine

Bit of a delay with me and my blog, got lazy when i came to space marines and basically forgot the order i painted them however …

I picked ultra marines, the transfers came with the box and to be honest i did want to try more transfers (after my Necron destroyers)

So in the true tradition of learning to paint, i looked up a video on youtube took a trip to the shop to get more paints. after a while this was produced!

So yeah one of my first marines dry brushed please note got the transfers on the wrong shoulders (however i did paint a full tactical squad so some were right by accident)

Also as i’m writing this about a year after i painted these don’t remember which of my 30 tactical marines were painted first, this this dude was one of the first.

I learned to paint blue! and a purity seal.

Any how im back to posting stuff!
