Default Rosen Knights 2nd Company:Test model (somewhat pic heavy)

[size=20pt]ROSEN KNIGHTS
2ND ELITE COMPANY
THE REQUIEM OF THE MARTYRS[/size]


This model is a test model to see the reactions towards it, whether they be positive or negative. (Note: this model is a showcase model specificly, if used via tabletop it would most likely be a Veteran Seargent)

The mapped out scheme:


The test model:

I don't understand whats going on to be honest. The painting is sound apart from on the Tau with out the helmet. He looks a bit, not blue and a bit not right.

But if there were some pics available with better lighting/angles then i'm sure it will all be revealed.

It seems quite obvious to me, the Vet Sarge is chargin a pair of Tau, simple if you ask me. It does look, however like there's too much there, just a 1 on 1 would look better imo.

As far as the painting goes, the painting is sound but the diorama in question does not portray the average marine in your scheme and so does not really demonstrate what your troops would look like. I suggest you test your scheme on a regular marine mate.

I think the marine is going to get OWNED. ;D

My opinion on the color scheme though, is that you seem to be focusing too much on black as a color. It may be the theme you're going for, but in my opinion it isn't too good of one.

I must second this point. if you're going to focus on black (wthout even coloured shoulderpads, for example) then your standard models will look quite bland.

OK here is what I see.

A BT charging into combat with some tau

What I see as wrong

The grey tau. Maybe he is so afraid that he turned grey :P I think he should be blue, it just looks odd as grey

The BT is not preparing to swing his weapon, He is rather close to his target, but he I not getting ready to swing. Also looks kind of odd.

As far as the rest of the paint goes, fantastic work!

I like the scheme and diorama, but I think the model needs highlights just on the black parts of the model.

Seconded, the models base looks a bit full, I think you should remove the helmetless Tau and if you dont want to get rid of him completely, kill him and lay him under some rubble
always brightens my day to see a few dead Tau lying around.. yes.

There are highlights but it's hard to see them.

But wait! The Rosen knights are a descendent of the Black Templars chapter, and assuch they uphold their fore chapters colors and honor. They "count as" Black Templars themselves.

I still don't like the colors, personally. Besides, what about the Crimson Fists and Imperial Fists? Isn't one a second founding chapter from the other?

And unless I've been seeing wrong the whole time, they are far from the same colors :P
