Thanks gobert! The spine OSL is the laziest possible OSL, a single light brushstroke running down the spine between the protrusions.

Thank you Not Online!!!! (four exclamation marks, 3 yours, one mine).

We're gonna be switching up the game today! So because I've decided I need to rescale my Terminators (Terminators shouldn't be dwarfed by Primaris marines guys), I wanted to redo my Marines scheme. And however could I decide?

Well.

I made an excel table of all 407 chapters listed in the wiki (including those canonically destroyed or went traitor). I numbered them all, giving them weights so that if they were destroyed or didn't have a known scheme I was less likely to roll their number, and if they were First Founding or otherwise a "featured" chapter like the Crimson Fists, Space Sharks, Black Templars, Flesh Tearers or similar, they got a heigher weight.

Well, the random number generator made their decision, and I could not be happier.

That is a very interesting way to decide on a color scheme Excited to see what you will do with these!

The colour scheme is Flesh Tearers! A darker red (airbrushed for ease), with black shoulders, helmets, backpacks, and chest ornaments. These specific minis however are the Dark Vengeance Dark Angels with Dark Angel insignia filed off I believe (except with different Sarge, Special and Heavy). I also have the captain and librarian from that set. I always liked the Dark Angel robes though, so I don't mind throwing some nice robed figures in with my Flesh Tearers. These guys will likely be Combat Squadded because, while I have 15 Tacticals, I only have 2 Sarges.

Progress is slow. And currently ugly. But it’ll fix up, I think.

Decided to do up the Sarge as a template model for the rest. Make sure I like all my colour choices. And I'm glad I did, because I realized I want to use a different final highlight for the black aquilla and gun casings than I do for the armour and backpack.




So far we have, for the black armour: Abaddon Black, Eshin Grey, Administratum Grey, Nuln Oil. For the gun casings and aquilla: Abaddon Black, Eshin Grey, 50/50 Eshin Grey and Karak Stone, Nuln Oil.
For the red: Khorne Red, Nuln Oil (next is a medium red highlight, then Cadian Fleshtone final highlight).
For the robes, so far: Greyseer, Skeleton Horde, Seraphim Sepia (next is likely Screaming Skull, then Pallid Wych Flesh).

So my highlights on the gun casing were too thick, and looking at it there's still red bleedthrough so I didn't paint my black down thick enough in the first place; will fix that.

Just about finished up here. Need to redo the eyes (not happy at alll with them), do the gold/details, finish the chapter badge (serrated circles are hard!) and the base.

Fixed the shoulder emblem (mostly). It needs a bit stronger white for the "teeth" of the saw, but otherwise I'm very happy with it!

Nice glow effect on the plasma and good work on the freehand symbol. Excited to see the rest get more colors.

I also want to praise the freehand symbol. That saw blade is ready to tear some flesh.

Thanks Viterbi! Unfortunately on the whole the mini is finished, I'm keeping the colours fairly low-contrast. Just details and special effects left.

Thanks DJJazzyJeff! It took me like 5 tries to figure out a technique that worked xD

Speaking of special effects, I really liked having OSL red light coming out of my old Terminators, so I'm gonna keep that around on my Flesh Tearers, even for regular infantry. It works really well here when it catches a little on the shoulder with the chapter badge!



Edit: looking over the old pictures, I also didn't leave any margins in the book! I'll fix that, it should also help keep the red letter looking more like a single large letter rather than a whole word.

In the grim darkness of the far future there are no margins, only full page justified text! Margins aside, the book looks great, I’d leave it and keep that lesson for the next mini! The freehand saw blade and the OSL are looking cool. The plasma glow on his hand works well to me. I’d maybe add a wash to his lenses to outline the lens a bit

Thanks gobert! I don't think it'd be too difficult to fix. For the lenses, I actually went and redid them entirely, as well as touching up the plasma. All other details done. Plus you can see the barrel weathering I did a bit clearer here.



Now to do up the rest of the squad (not gonna base the sarge until the rest are done).

The weathered plasma barrel looks well done. Kuddos on the freehand shoulder marking, nice as well!

Thanks Flapjack and Tyranid Horde! I'm very happy with both, especially for first tries. The burnt barrel effect will also appear on this unit's lascannon and meltagun.

I started the rest of the unit. This is the black highlighted up, awaiting a wash for it and the red once I clean the red up from brush mistrokes.

Back to work!

Thanks Not Online and amazingturtles for your kind words.

Viterbi, I haven't given it too much thought. I'm leaning towards a cool-hued blue-grey moonscape though. Light in shade and cool in hue to best show off the dark and warm Flesh Tearer colours.

Speaking of warm Flesh Tearer colours, got the red highlighted up! Next gonna finish up the guns, then the eyes, then the gold, then gonna do a go-over on each one for details.

Your Marines are looking good. Digging the OSL from the backpack vents. The detail on Sarge's book is awesome, and a litttle late here, but the chapter symbol turned out great.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Progress trickles on. I got:

Gold details! Look at the gold details on the backpacks here, oooooh


And we got: purity seals and barrel scorching. Though I didn't overlap the washes well enough I think, and they both need a bit of brown-black at the very extremity imho.

Good progress, the gold accents tie the minis together well and break up the black nicely.

Again, very nice heat effects on your heavy weapons!
