Default Oddball's WIP Highlander Marines

I decided that I'd start another 40k army, and being so unorginal as I am, I chose Space Marines.
But to get my Marines to atleast stand out a little bit I decided that I'd go with a scottish theme.
I bought my first box of marines today and I went with a box of scout snipers.
And I've already assembled one young lad.






there, you go. So what do guys think? It's my first real work with greenstuff so please be gentle :-P

1) I'm basing the tartans after the Black Watch
2) I'm just a newbie when it comes to greenstuff so I'm sure there are plenty of people here that would be better suited to write a tutorial on this than I, but thank you for the compliment:-)
3) Haven't quite made up my mind yet, but I'll think of something


Edit:


Here's what it looks like now. It could have been better but I'm hoping that I'll get better at this as I go.

Love it, you'll have a really unique Space Marine army if you can keep that up!
