Aaaaand he's done:
There's a nice video turnaround here too if you want to see more of it. Went with a Triangle for the Heavy Support designation as I felt that was more in keeping with the iconography Apologist is using on his own Gatebreakers. Also used a small flame in place of the Boltgun pip in the corner for the same reason. Would love to know what you think of him dude.
Of course now that I'm looking at it as a complete miniature I can see that I haven't shaded behind the power pack properly and I'm wondering if I should do some small line highlights on some of the upper facing panels... Still, I am pleased with the overall finish so I'm not going to rush to fiddle with it. C&C as always is encouraged!
Absolutely lovely – the gorgeous painting almost goes without saying in the context of your other work; but it's particularly rewarding to see your Chapter recreated by another artist. Thank you! I also love the creative additions of the weapon badge and squad designation. In fact, I like 'em so much I'll roll those into the Chapter's background.
I also completely support the principle of avoiding retouching. What are imperfections to one, are characterful to another.
I'll be getting started on the next model at some point this week, and I want your help to decide which chapter to set up. I've got a few in my list that I want to do, and I'll get to them all by the time I'm done here, but which do you think should be next? I've included what model I'd likely be painting up for each chapter; note that there are a lot more chapters I want to do, but feel like I'd want to do an Indomitus model for them, and I want to complete all the Know No Fear models first.
Tried setting up a poll but don't think that's possible so just reply with your vote and I'll tally them all up in a few days.

I like the look of the Accipiter, personally; though the Golden Halo is also cool. Seeing lots of lesser-known Chapters painted so nicely is a treat!
