Looks good mate! :tu:

 

I'd turn the head on the double bolter guy a little more to the left personally so that it looks like he is stepping down and snapping off a shot to his left while shooting at something on the right. Or vice versa, generally as a rule I find it helps if the head is facing in the same direction as one of the feet is pointing.

have to say, im not so keen on the double bolter guy. Maybe its the head?  

 in any case, this thread is really making me want to start the loyalist chapter ive been planning. I like the dirt - its just right, not out of the factory and not like my plague-marines, just enough to say that yes they have definitely seen some intense fighting.

The face is fantastic. Is that a tattoo on his head?
 
Love the pose on the Vet. ;)


It is indeed a tattoo....well the names of his fallen brothers

Nothing quite like anti horde than a marine with two bolters lol

Thank you Doghouse, I see what you're saying and you're right, I've updated his pose and he looks more fluid.

Thanks brother, that's what I wanted to get these guys looking, seeing as their a fleet based chapter now and was conducting many hit and run attacks on the tyranids, now with the double bolter sternguard I trying to choose different bare heads to represent the different worlds they recruited from before the destruction of their world and system, but I do see what you're saying, I might scar it up lol

Dude this is swiftly becoming one of my favorite logs. I love the Scythes and the way you do them really captures the gritty survivalist feel of a chapter on the brink. Keep up the stellar work man.

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

These are tremendous. Scavenged armor, check. Men that look like they've been to hell and back, but continue to fight? Check. The Scythes are easily one of the coolest chapters out there, and you're doing them justice. Well done, brother.

The Chapter Master looks very promising but I do think the Typhus body would lend it more movement and aggression.
