Default How does my marine look?

Hey this is my first Ultramarine for the marine army I have. For a while I've been one of those guys with no painted models just primer. However I am getting good enough to enter tournaments and painting is one of the points in the tournaments. I was wondering if you guys could look at my guy and tell me what you think. This is the first model I've ever painted so don't be to harsh, I think it's decent. Also I am going for a muddy look thats what all the brown stuff is, heh I'd rather do that then highlight.

Looks good, although what has happened to his right arm shoulder pad?

i think u have done well with them. we all aint perfect painters anyway but im one that likes to do the highlighting and get all the tiny little detail that i can find on it but thats just me. have you got any clearer pics though so u can see the whole thing without the blur?

For your first painted models, they are excellent. You say you want a dirty look, and you're doing it well. I'd suggest a wash of brown or black over the model, both to reinforce the grittiness of the models, and to provide some shading on the large, blue areas.

i like it its a nice solid scheme, and yes id agree with droids rule on this one, try a wash to just give the dirt that much more depth, but as theyre some of your first painted ones you can only get better with practice

one thing i would say is: i spy mould lines, a simple light run over with a file or a knife can get rid of those before you paint them, they can be points of criticism for tournament points etc.

but yeah i like the scheme

Yeah the mold lines is a good tip. Do you know where I can find out how to do a wash? I don't even know what that is, lol.

sure, a wash is essentially an ink or a really watered down and thin application of paint to the nooks and crannies of the model, like on the inside of the legs and around the edges of the plating on the armour. all it does is give more contrast between the shaded areas and the more prominent tips of the armour.

check on the painting board for a more detailed one than i can give: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?board=18.0

hope that helps
