That's a really nice effect. Hate the work that goes into it... but it really pays off.

I do the black line thing myself sometimes, but it's hard to keep it neat like you have. I'm envious of your ability and steady hand.

@Gits - I know, but it is still better than the old way I used to do it, covering every inch in badab black, then layering on grey two or three times then highlighting grey, this process is simply faster.

@Zerg - I cover up a lot of the mistakes with camera angles

Update: Base colours applied, next up washes

He's looking good so far! Is that meltagun from the Betrayal at Calth marines? Doesn't look like a standard meltagun. I'm very jealous of your ability to make such subtle highlights on things like the chest eagle and gun casing.

@Zerg - Surprisingly its not from Calth, its from the upgrade sprue from Forgeworld, I suspect the sprue is a HH based one.

Update: marine done, ran into a small issue where I got the heads mixed up and the helmeted head doesn't fit inside the collar, so had to remove a head from the previous marine and swap it around.

First up the new marine




And the redone previous marine

@Gits - Aww, you're far to kind, and here I was thinking everyone was getting bored of Grey

Update: On to the last marine for the squad, Grey applied to the armour!
