Liberites,

 

This is a thread in which you can post all pictures of the models you have painted in the colours of one of your DIY projects. Once the collection gets large enough, it might inspire others to pick up their brush and paint a model in the colours of their DIY Chapter/Warband/Order/Regiment/etc!

 

Please remember to keep the pictures B&C-friendly. :tu:

Forgive the awful quality. All I have to work with is a cheap camera phone. To make up for my inability to take photos (or paint), here's a blurb to go with it...

 

The Supernovas:

DSC_0019_zpsrrtgush1.jpg

I feel like the Supernovas are a good example of the freedom you get from making your own Chapter. My Marines have a much higher focus on the individual than most Chapters, and this can be expressed in how they get painted! Instead of a fixed uniform, the squads have a broad base uniform (blue and black) with "honour markings" applied to tie them all together. In this case, the bright green company colour is applied not as a uniform shoulder band, but however the individual Marine feels like wearing it!

Battle Brother Arvemath of the Champions of Athlum, and Battle Brother Haystan of the White Hawks:

So proud of how Haystan turned out, he's really captured the spirit of the whole Chapter in one marine - here's a guy who's seen something worth killing, so now the knives are coming out!

For size comparison, here's Brother Vakar, formerly my best attempt at the "this one calls for a good stabbing" pose.

And just to show off my nephew's freakin' awesome gunslinger a little more, here's Arvemath standing next to Brother Dagor, selected for this picture by virtue of being the closest:



gallery_46204_9220_937382.jpg

One thing I can't capture properly on the picture is the eyes - they're Stormhost Silver with the Soulstone Blue (or whatever the blue gemstone paint is) over the top, and they look MAGNIFICENT - even from tabletop distance you can see them gleaming slightly.

I like how he's looking up as he draws the knife. This is someone who clearly gives no expletives.

"Right, he's getting stabbed in the face."
"Brother  Haystan, that's a Carnifex!"
"Don't care. He's getting stabbed in the face."

"Don't care. He's getting stabbed in the face."

 

Truth is, I got that pose entirely by accident - he was originally going to look more forward and have his head more tilted to one side, as though to say "You call that a knife?"

 

But then while messing about with the posing I managed to get his head to roll back a bit and, well, you've written the resulting dialogue already. laugh.png

I think "It's not the size of the blade that matters, but how you use it," is more appropriate, as the knife isn't particularly flashy.

For best effects, decorate his base with a dismembered, disemboweled, decapitated Chaos Terminator, so everyone will know your Marine's skill with the blade.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Here is my collection, just a few things and details to work on and then I'm finished with collecting biggrin.png . It has taken me so long to get the paint scheme just the way I like it but it was worth it. This force is roughly 4000 points and about 231 PL, that's when I finish two more devastator centurions and a deredeo dreadnought. Here I present the Strike Force of The Elysian Phoenixes.

Those are fantastic marines you've got there!
I think my favourite detail is that the scout's weapons are a different colour to the regular marines, that's a neat idea. thumbsup.gif

Cheers dude :D my wife even sculpted the chapter badge - we tried to make a greenstuff press for it to use on other marines but it didn't work too well as I recall. This guy was my count as Sicarius and even rocks an old school Chaos Warrior cape!

There are some very cool looking custom diy marines here in this thread. Keep it up Brothers! Also, I know it will be late now but what if we plan for next year to have our own Armies on Parade event here? People could do their custom marines and board to display their armies.
