Mostly, on my phone.

Glad you like him SL. You certainly don't to step up anything, your lamenters are stunning. Yeah, I play mentors but would love one of your yellow mob; in fact, I'd really like a Lamenter special, if that's not a cheeky ask - a Lamenter version of a BA special or maybe one of the IA ones? Feasible?

I'd be interested in trading marines if anyone wanted, they'd be in either colour scheme of my two custom Chapters, the Blood Dragons, or the Boreal Templars who i'm starting currently. there are a couple of photos in my gallery of Blood Dragons, but I'm bored of them so I'm starting a more Arctic scheme, PM me if interested.
Thanks,
Raith

Ah heck, just post the termie pics!

The point of the pics isn't necessarily to show what you want to trade, it's just to show off what you can do. That way when you work out a trade, you and the other person can custom make marines for each other so you each get exactly what you want or need.

Ummm my bits box

I believe that it is one of the top round hatches to a LRC. I took a combat shield, cut out the hand that is holding it, cut it down to fit onto the LRC hatch, glued it on, then cleaned up the kitbash a little, glued on a bolter hand and VOILA!

Reminds me of a man hole cover shield ala TMNT, which is a good thing. I also now have the stupid "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" song stuck in my head, so thanks for that.

@Prototype_X, I'm gonna paint one up in about 15 minutes time, then i'll post it and you can tell me whether or not you still want one (I've never had much luck with white :/ )
If you still wanna trade, what configuration?

@endtransmission: That is a beautiful dread! Fantastic skills were needed on that beauty.

@Shado.Raith: I really like the black and white scheme, and I can't wait to see it on an actual model. Even though I won't be trading anytime soon, schemes like that make me want to!

@warriors of mayhem: I really like the top pic. You did the white armor's shading wonderfully, though the blue looks a bit... pastel? I don't know maybe its just the light. Anyhow, great model, I'd love to see it across the table.

@-Cypher-
@Prototype_X,
I've just finished painting up the black and white marine of the Boreal Templars. But as they are ice related, they've been done in a blue/grey wash, which brings out an arctic feel i think, but i'd be happy to paint them without the wash, I'll probably upload the photos this evening.

@cypher- Thanks. As far as the blue it may be the lighting or the fact that my phone likes to mess with my pictures.

Finally painted my Boreal Templars marine, I must apologise for the dodgy Templar logo on the shoulder, I decided that i just wanted to finish the guy as he is just a pilot for the colour scheme. This one has a grey/blue (9:1) wash, but if wanted i could leave unwashed for a cleaner black/white distinction, but i decided the wash looked good for an arctic theme.
