I'm sorry, but I don't understand what's going on with the helmets in those last pictures. Maybe it's the pictures themselves, but I just don't get what's going on in those pictures.

the helmets are from a company called pig iron productions, i decided i wanted my land speeder storm scouts to be special.. and i put in a little nod to health and safety therefore they all wear helmets and thier chainswords have hazard stripes :)

I like that idea, with the LSS scouts having helmets and the warning striping on the chainswords. It's a cool idea and I like that a lot. I guess I'm just not a fan of the helmets themselves. But I guess it's better than using regular marine helmets or even guard helmets for that matter, so I guess I approve. Good job, mate!

Nice work on the Scouts GC!

I typically prefer Ultramarines in a darker colour scheme but I think you pull off the blue well. I like the fact that with the Power Armoured torsos you can have more posing freedom and might have to steal the idea for at least a few of my Wolfy scouts.

Keep it up!

Thanks for the compliments guys..

the flash makes it look a little brighter, but i used to use enchanted blue, which made my guys look the colour of blue tac.. im now using ultramrines blue, although if i were to start again id use regal blue which has a slightly darker tone than ultras blue

I love the Pig Iron heads. Might look into them for future Scout Squads.

Same can be said for the baldy heads. They look an awful lot more intimidating than the rosy faced youths that the current plastics have. I find the standard scout faces a pain to paint anyway. They seem too flat, almost.

I've found the shouting Cadian sergeant head with the headset looks awesome on Scout sergeants too. Not sure if that's still provided with GW sets, but if it is I'd probably use them as well if I buy more Scouts.

Looking good. One qualm, your sooty/heated metal effects on the combiflamers are actually backwards. The blackest area would technically be where the flame exits the barrel.

i understand what you mean, but i didnt do it for soot, the silver at the end of the barrel is where the black paint has been burned off..

anyhoo heres my sniper, i realised when i uploaded this pic that i smudged the right arm skull symbol.. and i missed a couple of areas.. ill need to go back and tidy him up a bit
its really just a test mini

Ah ha. Well that makes sense.

I also love the converted sniper/boltgun especially the scope as noted above.

Thanks guys
the scope comes as an extra to scout packs.. i had to shave off the scout hand and pin it.. i admit i probably rushed it a little but seeing how it was a test model it didnt turn out too bad.

The way you've painted the speeder is really clever, nice model.
