Thumbs up on the newest pattern. Definitely different than “standard” camo.

Thank you! I will go with this urban-pattern on my scout clothing and recon marine-camocloaks. Just to add; pattern was painted with Vallejo; standard grey, green gray, German grey and white.

I’m thinking about making the scouts camocloaks in some woodland Camo to break up the grey-black-white dominant colors. What do you think?

I'm more gamer than hobbyist in that regard. It comes down to what pleases you the most. I like my army to have a consistent color scheme. I might change the pattern up say Scouts and Intercessors. They'll have different patterns but the colors used will be the same. I'm thinking of trying a different pattern for a squad of Intercessors that will be a big enough change my opponent knows they are special (thinking DW Kill Team). but keeping them uniform enough they still blend with rest of the army.

 

That's just my preference though. I think you could go the other way also. I had one DIY army I took to Games Day and each squad was a different established Chapter. No one had an issue with it and most thought it was neat way to represent a Crusade.

 

Let your army tell your story :)

Wise words! I’m ok game wise with almost everything just there’s some kind of fluffy explanation to why something is what it is. I’m gonna try different pattern cloaks and see what happens :)

Tonight’s painting. My lieutenant is done. Bases represents some kind of iron oxide battlefield because red/orange goes well with green :) and my first Sternguard got some battle damage and Camo-pouches.

Ok time to get thumb out of ass and get miniatures finished. No more fiddling around with possible camo-patterns.

First out 2 scouts, still things to fix up but got promoted to tabletop-ready. A battle coming up soon :)

Good job on the Scouts.

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.

I just think that with your excellent skills for this amazing Chapter that something more ... sizable deserves your attention.  I mean, it could really be anything from a Dreadnought to a Warlord Titan.  I'm simply suggesting a Land Raider as a humble compromise ^_^

Excellent work. I like the camouflage patterns on his cloak and his clothing.

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)
