Default Commander Space marines WIP

yestarday i went to the gamesworkshop converting day thing for dark angels
any i made this model
and i started painting him

Anyway its my first time painting green and there are a few highlights but i only had dark angels green and scopions green so i used a dark angels base then 2:1 at the start. Then 1:1 and then 1:2.
i only want comments on the green as its the first time ive painted it and i rushed it kind of. the brown isn't finished so don't bother commenting on that
hopefully i can get it painted by the end of the week ;D

It looks good so far, although I would recommend in future that you use a Chaos Black undercoat for your Dark Angels, (the white is showing through the armour!) The Sword arm needs raising just a little, so that it doesn't look broken, the Plasmapistol is cool, so is the cloak, but there are finger marks on it!

So far so good!

I see what you mean but theres always a next time i suppose i could paint over the parts where the white shows through
i tried getting the finger makes of the cape with water and then with a file but the wouldn't come off any tips
i could always say that i textured it ;D
Ive painted his cape thing and gun and sword and hopefully ill be able to get some pictures of him tommorow in the light

A chaos black undercoat would've probably been better, but it looks pretty good
I laugh at the fools who thought Tau Online Chat Op is hard work! :shifty:

Good job so far.
