Default Tenth Diamond Company - Ork Hunters

Finally have the completed paint scheme for the Iron Diamond Space Marines 10th Company. Enjoy some pictures. I hope to do a WIP thread for these guys soon.

10th Diamond Company Ork Hunters
specific veteran scout unit.










please comment, i want to know what you guys think.
Yes that is a standard SM tactical squad head on the mini, however i figured for a more veteran feel, so i went with that choice.

Very nice paintjob you have there, the Camo pattern on the legs is really well done, the only problem I have is with the model's posing. His head isn't looking the right way as his gun, I think it looks a bit unnatural. But that's just me nitpicking.

Nice,

Have you tried this on power armour yet Ploss?

Camo and MEQ troops (inc Vehicles) never seem to look striking or that mariney to me, mainly due to the camo doing its job and breaking up the minis outline whereas trad SMs are bold n loud.

It looks good on the scout mate though and all of the above is just opinion/taste so don't mind me .

i had timmed a bunch off the neck of this bastard already, as the SM heads all have huge swivel stubs on the bottom of their craniums. So i don't think i quite trimmed enough off of it, however, i was kind of going for a "I'm covering this part with my gun and panning with my eyes" I freeze-framed him in a moment of movement. that was the goal.

i haven't tried it on pwr armor yet. I'm thinking about it, just for kicks. I do like the way the camo looks on the scout, as the fabric for his pants is a better medium for that sort of thing than flat power armor is. If i was going to do camo on power armor it would probably be a black/grey design. Sort of that faux urban camo type pattern. does that make sense?

Very nice camo scheme, Commissar. I like the skin tones as well.

By veteran scouts, do you mean something similar to SW scouts? I can just imagine a load of 1st company marines getting into scout armour to go into a swampy environment that would pretty much swallow the much heavier armour variants.

thanks, i liked doing the camo and the skin tone was meant to simulate the effects of too much humidity around the sutures of his implants. Obviously getting a little inflamed and infected. But hunting Orks will do that to you.

by "veteran" I mean scouts who have been in the Company for a hundred years (give or take) and have chosen to devote their existence to hunting the foul mutant scum who destroyed their home planet. Rather than lumber around in full Power Armour, they chose to forgo the black carapace for something easier to move in. and possibly some 1st company blokes who have decided to join the scout ranks again. Here's another part you may find cool. If i get to have my way with their fluff, these are the guys who, back in the 3rd war for Armageddon, trained the Imperial Guard "Ork Hunters" (see Chapter Approved 2, from 2003).

Yes, I remember the Armageddon ork hunters.They were a cool concept.

They even went as far as to implant ork like tusks so the orks might be more fearful of them. There's a short story in one of the anthologies about a regular guard officer joining them for a special mission. I even made a couple for an Inquisitor warband years ago.

I really like teh camo on his pants. The blood may need to be dulled down a bit thought as it looks far to bright. Dont do power armour as urban though. do the same scheme on the power armor but as that digital pattern.

Over all the model looks cool but I am not a fan of the blood on the sword. Just to much in my opinion.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

this is a really cool job, i like the shoulder gaurds, the camo is really well done, i think that the sm head works really well, i think once you base it it will set the mini, maybe you could put an ork head on the base, just a thought fresh blood on the blade, head on the deck, any way just and idea +rep
