Default Emperors Beacons, new scheme!

Ok so after taking some suggestions, I repainted the two and painted three more, now here are the Emperors Beacons with their new scheme!













Whatcha think?

I'm not a fan of the bone color on the shoulder pads...I like the blue and the red trim but I think that the bone should be a different color. Don't ask me what color cause I have no idea. I'd also have liked to see either black or red for the plating on the gun. I do like the bone knee though

*Bases aren't done either :/*

I agree, the bone dosn't work in this case. I actually liked them before. Now they look like a bad mix of blood ravens and Ultramarines.

Instead of bone, I'd try black or just straight white.

But also, they could look a little better if they had a symbol on the pad.

hmm, both those suggestions are pretty good, and i have one more model that is not painted that I can try a test scheme on. I'll try one shoulder the white, one black, then see how it is tomorrow. But if all it is is just a case of empty shoulder pads, I could put transfers on them tomorrow, and then show them to ya, without painting any models I don't need to.

Ohh I just noticed... all of their packs are blue too :P


Easy way to do them, Dark Flesh with a highlight of bestial brown.

The packs I rather keep blue, I think it would look to busy with to many colours on it. The bone I think if it looks better with transfers, I'll keep, but if not then I'll have to repaint them white probably.

Actually... the little bit of color on the packs make it look like alot more effort went in to the models. The brown dosn't conflict at all either. It's just one of those details that make a model look unfinished if it's not done.

hmm, so repaint them dark flesh, and drybrush bestial brown? I'd have to get my hands on some dark flesh then. But I've never done antything like that before so I'm natually cautious about it. But I'll get around to snaggin me some dark flesh and trying it out. And also you think white would look the best instead of bone or black?

Hmm, I'm having some big decisions going through my head on whether to change the scheme that much. I'm quite fond of the bone, and I'm taking all suggestions fully, but I'm not sure if I'd do a major radical change from what it is now. I myself did enjoy the original blue shoulderpads, and I was a little disheartened when these shoulder pads looked so solid coloured compared to the nice dark/ultra blue drybrush the rest of the model is. I think maybe if i chestnut inked the shoudlers, and drybrushed something else on, that it might look nicer.

It's up to you... if you like the bone then keep it.


Also, don't drybrush to packs. Edge highlight.

Cleaner and looks better.
