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.
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.
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!
