Interesting... Looks quite medieval with the alternated colours. What about the chapter name Steel (something). Can't think of a second name as yet but thats what i thought of when i saw them.

Knights of Citrus!

Painting is good. Just a very odd selection of colors for the scheme.

wow they look good!!!!! The only thing I can say is I think the green should be darker (Snot Green).
The white armour is spot on, very nice indeed. :D

You definitely have painting skill, but the colour selection is quite ... odd. But I do think it can work with several models together, just not models each on their own.

thanks for your comments and critics so far guys!
Yeah, "Citrus Commando" ^^ ...
i will think about a name ... will take some time, but your ideas are welcome of course!

They are supposed to look good in a group, thats the main idea, the single apperance is not that important..
i will take a little groupshoot later today

I think they look great, my only concern is how the look will transfer to a vehicle.

Either way they will look good as a group on the table, looking forward to seeing more.

Interesting, well painted and definately original, but it does look a bit silly don't you think!

I like the painting and the choice of colors. My only suggestion would be to alter the bolters from a white steel to more of a metal look. Similar to the shoulder pads on one of the marines. As it stands now they're blending into the power armor a little too much to differentiate between the two.

Maybe i nice brass or beaten copper look would draw it out more from the white armor and silver trim.

Keep it up!

i thought about the colors, tried a few things and came up with this final result:

The Chapters Name will be "Azure Angels", and i will paint 2 Squads of AOBR Space Marines
as a Base ... which will take about 3 years :-)

Liking them much better than the Citrus colored ones! The free-hand isn't half bad either!
