Default So Far Completed Red Templars (More to come)

Hey here's just a few pics of my new Red Templars I've painted up so far, all bases are complete and I've just been trying out the new red scheme, I started with Black Templars but I don't like the new rules and prefer the more lighter painting scheme of these.

Chapter Master




Standard Bearer



Apothecary



Company Champion



Sergeant



Captain



Space Marine with Plasmagun



Assault Squad



Assault Marine 1

Assault Marine 2

Assault Marine Sergeant

Assault Marine 3

Assault Marine 4


Comment what you think and any improvements or criticisms all open I'll take anything constructively thanks.

Hmm... They look pretty good, from what I can see :-\. The picture quality is pretty poor, any chance of getting some better pictures, does your camera have a "macro" setting? It should look like a little flower . Otherwise, you might want to consider thinning down your paints, they look a little thick, but that might just be the pics .

Good work so far, good luck with the rest .

Cheers mate, yeah I actually wondered what the little flower meant on my digital cam, I'll try it out tomorrow and see if the pics turn out better bud, going to bed now :P

I don't think my paints are too thick I'm just using Citadel paints straight out of the pot, maybe I should water them down or something :S

Ah well check back tomorrow I'll have added some more hopefully.

Watering down is always a good idea. Its always better to have 2-3 thin layers than one think one globbed on. I usually water down my paints 50:50, but thats just my opinion. It looks like you've got a good scheme but we'll need better pictures before we can determine anything conclusive.

Good luck with your marines!

Alright, I can't wait to see the pics . But, like faith no more said, watering down your paints is always a good idea, it will help give you a more consistent color and a smoother finish . Goodluck with the camera mate!

Looks ok so far - I've seen FAR worse painting than this; your painting is at least accurate with few slops, if a little thick, and at least you make the effort to finish all your squads and do some decent bases (I admit to not watering down my paints enough myself). One thing I picked up on - your standard bearer looks like he's wearing lipstick. DO NOT paint lips red, it really doesn't work. I'm looking forward to seeing better quality pictures, and it's nice to see somebody finally collecting the Red Templars, the chapter that nobody remembers despite being in the Codex (It isn't even on the Chapter List in the Space Marine board!).
