Default Krakens Fury - Space marines

Well i have finished a brief fluff section https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...d.php?t=109470 and so jumped into first squad of ten marines using green stuff and dark elf corsairs bits to make them so here are is the first one! he will be the sergeant for the ten man squad!

I have just started painting him so will post it in a few hours! I'm not sure whether to give the capes to all the marines as it makes them look like the normal captain marines, so i may just green stuff extra carapace on them instead. The jist of them is that they grow armour over time and when they are wounded so the sergeant will have more etc!

C&C wanted thanks!!

It looks good, that is a pretty good looking cape you've done. You could do smaller ones or maybe some scales over arms or legs in places, like they've been wounded in certain areas and the scales are growing over those spots. I wanna say water down the paints some, but that might not quite be what I'm looking for, it could be the green stuff, maybe a little thinner. But great start, keep it up.

Very good model, maybe try and scale some parts of the standard marines, maybe the bottom sections of the legs (think scaled shin guards) and shoulderpads seem like the most obvious places for me

Update! Well i have done the sergeant and green stuffed first marine, ive done sort of barnicle scales on his shoulder and im going to attack the other blobs with a knife and get them angled down to look like armour! I am happy with the painting may need touching up but i want to keep going with each marine and not linger!

Thanks for the comments guys! i think they may get scaled loin cloths or shoulder drapes i think the capes suit the commanders of the squads etc

One thing that works well for scales is roll out the "cloth" you want scaled really thin, then make little balls of green stuff and just squish them on top of it. They'll take a little bit of shaping afterwards, cutting, etc, but it gives you a basic layout for scales.

Well this is def an interesting concept. They appear a little more like Night Lords, at least at the moment, to me that is. Anways, looking forward to seeing this progress further.

I saw a Salamanders Dreadnought with a huge lizard skin hanging over one shoulder done like that before, it was a great idea and it stuck with me. If I ever do Sallies or something with scales I'll do this on everything.
