The God-Emperor's Conquerors!

I had been considering painting some Space Marines, and was digging through some old figures and stumbled across this old Assault Marine. So, I started dabbling around with creating my own chapter. If I'm doing armored heroes running across open fields towards machine gun nests, they're going to be painted like clowns, so I went for a quartered paint scheme. This represents the first Space Marine I've painted in 18-19 years. And I enjoyed it! I actually sculpted some custom shoulder pads, but I haven't cast them yet, so I painted him how I thought a veteran's shoulder pad might look. Plus, I'd like to do some fancy bases for them, and I haven't done that yet, so the base in unfinished as well.

  1. I've always been too intimidated by the quartered look to give it a try, but you pulled it off well here. The color scheme looks better than the Howling Griffons to boot. I think I'm going to have to commission you to do script on all my chainswords, haha, that looks sweet. Get cracking on the shoulder pads!
