My local club is starting a 40k Crusade Campaign and I've taken it as some motivation to get my White Scars completed and on the table.

 

Here's my first completed unit

 

Squad Ogayn - Second Squad of the Stormwrath Brotherhood - The Eyes of the Storm (Primaris Incursor Scuad)

Thanks InKaras, there were a couple of points in the process where the self-doubt was strong but I'm really pleased with the end result

They're very satisfying to do, the biggest challenge is staying neat after doing the "white". In reality I've used very little white at all, it's almost all greys.

Cheers Mithril, I've got some Assault Intercessors to get pics of next.

Ulthuan Grey did feature pretty heavily along with a bunch of Vallejo greys, USN Ghost Grey and White Grey were the other main components, plus Dead White mixed into the White Grey for the final step. All through an airbrush over a Panzer Grey undercoat as that's not quite as severe as black.

Part one of that is already the plan, part two would require some negotiations whistling.gif

Very fine work here Brother Rikyes.gif Your minis are very sharp and clean from the bases up. The simple scheme with minimal markings works really well into the theme of the Incursors. I would like to see some closeups of the helmets. All nicely donethumbsup.gif

So, I've been lax with my photography, but not so much with my painting, so a bit of an image dump right here....

Great job, really like the dirty white that you are using really makes them look like field troops instead of parade troops.

A cool project, your White Scars. :)

I like how these are not overemphasizing the Asian aspect of the chapter, while at the same time not entirely downplaying it.
