Wow, I really think the colour scheme looks good, and I'm very impressed with your painting skills too. I'd love to see more units if you have them?

Howdy!

Now those are some darn fine terminators buddy! The colors are clean and the detail work is very neat. Good definition and highlighting as well. I think that qualifies as 'jobz a gud 'un!' If these are any indication, I can't wait till you put up your assault squad!

Good luck and good gaming,

Very cool paintjob, though I must admit, I was expecting the opposite when it came to the skulls!

I wanted a different reason for my chapter name and colour scheme so as u would think yes they should have red helmets but hey the red scorpions arn't actually red they only have a red scorpion chapter badge so on this i thought red armour with a skull as the chapter badge hence "crimson skulls". All of the marines in my chapter will have the deneb stone helmets as a change and i like the look of contrast between the red and deneb. Thankyou all for your positive comments it makes all the differece.
