Default Chapter Cedo Alterum (image heavy)

My first marine scheme and the one that I currently use


most of the chapter, the right side is cut off.


Chapter master Clip_XVII, after the fact that I was thinking of the 17th leigon before I got the codex. that's a Tau head on his storm bolter.


Tactical marine


assault marine


marine from a reserve company


auto howitzer, will be put on a rhino to count as a whirlwind


Predator


sniper in a guilly suit(sp?)


a use for varus, with true grit ^-^


scout Sergeant Benedict (name has nothing to do with the current pope)


techmarine made with sprue bits and McCrage marine.

pictures are kind of rough...
C&C appreciated.

Man, it's hard to see if these are good or not as he pictures are so blurry. You need to use a macro feature or something....

I don't know if macro will help. I know when I tried to get pics my macro was even worse then these close-ups. But I have seen these and they are good. They are his starter army and he had limited paints, so no highlights or stuff. But good.

I'll try reducing the size of the close ups, may help. Tried to make a scheme that did not look terrible w/o highlights.

For a second there, I thought the trains where your army. :P

I like the auto-howitzer thingy. Cannon seems more SM than missiles and rockets.

Yay! Another model railway fan! I'm so happy... ;D

*Ahem*...Anyway, the paint scheme is good, the colours work well together, and there's no obvious slip-ups or mistakes in the painting. All based as well, which is nice to see. In particular, the conversion on that auto-howitzer is ace. Only thing I'm not sure about os the tanks - SMs tend not to use camo on their tanks, but it's fair enough if you want to do it - however, the edges on some of those blobs of colour are a bit rough, and they'd look a lot neater if you went over them again.

Nice work, looking forward to more! (And, if possible, better pics )

the scout w/ the base flock is an interesting idea, i like it. Maybe you could carry the theme with the rest of your scout squad and get some static grass, moss or some dead leaves and give them each a textured camo. This might give you some inspiration if you do decide to carry the theme through the rest of the scouts.

I used camo because I didn't have money to buy more Mechrite red at the time, and I didn't use much of the brown and green thet came in the foundation starter set. The ghillie suit I attampetd was from some model railroading turf that served as a better texture than the GW grass. Still need to mount the howitzer, I don't have a spare rhino, I kind of like mobility for atleast one squad. the Howitzer was born of boerdom and the auto cannon on the predator sprue based on a rhino side door and sprue bits, glad you like it.

Thanks all.
