Default My first 2 Chaos Space Marines

They each took about 2:30 to 3 hours to paint, so I hope you're all damn impressed :P





I haven't glued on the arms holding the heavy bolter, nor have I painted the HB, because I'm not sure how I will yet. I also need to go over it one more time and touch some parts up, paint the eyes, etc. but they're mostly finished.

Why flash? Wouldn't that distort the colors and make the gold and ink shine way too much?

I'm adding side shots right now though

Yeah, there's no reason to take pictures with a flash. Well, no great reason anyway.

As for the minis themselves, for your first 2 they look decent enough, but I'm actually most impressed by how good the snow bases look. Most people (like me) could try hard and not come out with a result close to that. So I guess as you paint and get better, they're going to come together quite nicely.

Those look pretty good. Shouldn't the chainsaw be a little bloodier?...

Hellz yeah it should. This is chaos we're talking about here!
I'm still working on a realistic blood splatter effect, so I'm not adding it yet
They also need grime and dirt and rust and stuff, but I'm not good at doing any of that yet so I'm not adding that yet either.

realistic blood? mmh, easiest is red ink, but if we're talking big coagulated spots, to indicate there's blood on it all the time, instead of just 'at the moment' (understandable?), so you could always use some bestial brown, or dark flesh, and ink that in red (or chestnut) ink.

It would change a color of Midnight blue to look different.. most of the other colors stay the same.. and why a flash, so I can see the figs a bit better and see the detailing on the chests.

I'm probably going to end up splattering lots of Vallejo Beast Brown + Scab Red, then a bit of Scab Red, then a bit of Blood Red to show layers of blood, some fresh and some not.
