My latest edition to my own armies. I had to have him in my collection but I also had to make him fit in better with my Blood Angels.

To each their own. I do prefer him like this, although I think adding a spot of color like a blue (or red, if necessary for him not to clash with the BAs) shoulder pad or two could have helped, I think...

I'm not a Ultra hater, but I do not like their blue, this guy looks great.

 

Well done on taking the leap away, he kinda looks like he should be Sanguinius without wings, again well done he actually looks great like this.

Why is his armor dark gray? Is it meant to be bare ceramite, like a Grey Knight's?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

To clarify I think he looks great like this rather than in blue. It might just be that my screen is terrible or that the four year old adjusted the color balance when I wasn’t looking again, but it looks like gold with silver highlights.

It is mostly gold with a few silver details picked out like the chest eagle and ultramarine chapter badges. I use a pale antique gold colour rather than the "Ratners" yellow that's common place. It's Tamiya's Titanium Gold for anyone who's interested. Thank you all for the feed back it's been a pleasure reading it.

He definitely looks scarier in this colour scheme.  I really like it.  Actual paint work is really good too!  Enjoyable to view.

Oh i love this scheme wub.gif

but as others are saying it looks different on their screens..to me it looks like a tarnished silver..which is awesome anyway...

oh and by the way you have a spot of red on your right pauldron...right there on the wing...ermm.gif oops...

 

Love it though,its my favourite version of him so far (sorry Prot blush.png )

 

Cheers, Mithril

That spot has been fixed. It's just one of them things you don't notice until after it's already out in the world.... I think you go a bit blind to things like that when the model is in your hands. Pictures are the best way to find flaws like that. Thank you for taking the time to point it out as it means you've really taken the time to look at the model. 

 

 

I'd quite like to put this style of paint on the new Custodes. I'm going to have to keep my fingers crossed that someone wants a commission of them. As I think my next personal army will be a Blanch style Mechanicus force Super gritty and very creepy looking, with lots of conversion work.

you know, Custodes done in your style here would be awesomesauce wub.gif  

i have done the  "finding a flaw in a pic of your own models" before as well...we look at it soo much we kinda get the "Can't see the forest for the tree's" effect rolleyesclean.gif

glad its fixed. 

good luck in your next "Blanchesque" adventure!

 

Cheers, Mithril

 

p.s. Tamiya  - titanium gold, its in my vault of to get get paints list now msn-wink.gif

I actually really like the silver, pretty cool, non-traditional take on the armor.
