Default Question on Assault Marines

Okay, so I'm painting my Assault Marines, and it's all well and good, and then... The jump-packs.

I have no idea how to paint those buggers and not have them look bad. The backs of the packs and the intakes on the front are a complete mystery to me. Anyone have any tips, or links to a tutorial, or something?

Go to coolminiornot.com and search assault marines. That should give you quite a few ideas of how you could paint them.

What i would do would be to paint the casing the same colour as your armour, and the grill bit boltgun metal with a bit of black ink after wards

What is the base color scheme for your marines?

How soon do you need to have them done? I'm painting assault marines right now. I could do a tutorial up for you in a few days (I only paint for a little every night).
Let me know,
Thanks,
Em

No real hurry. My basecolor is white.

I have a general idea of what they're supposed to look like, just not how to do it.

The problem is doing the jets. I'm painting the jets and the insides of the back of the pack in Chaos Black but it always ends up bleeding out a little or ending up where I don't want it.

Maybe I'll post pictures, heh.

I know it's probably going to sound strange but: try not watering your paint down so much.

Tried that. I just can't get along the rim of something without going over the edge a little bit. I guess I'll have to just clean it up and hope that I don't reverse the process with the white.
