Default Dragon Slayers:A Space Marine Chapter UPDATED 23-6-14

Liberian Santon Reaves stood there, looking out on the vast blackness of space, he was on the bridge of the battle barge the Vindicator. The chapter master Ashor Talros came to join him on the front of the figurehead.
"I can feel the disruption in the warp", said Santon his force staff in one hand.
"Who"asked Ashor

any C&C welcome

Pretty good, I like the red/bone colour scheme. Only crit is the orange, its too bright for the rest of the model which has a very dark tone.

Off to a solid start! I'm not sold on the orange, either-- it sort of gets lost in the red and the bone, I think. I'm not sure what to suggest as an alternative-- traditionally, helmet lens that aren't red are green-- that might be a possibility to try.

Great start! I like the scheme and the little coversation at the start, realy got me intrested. I think the bone need another layer since it looks a bit uneaven. I also second was has been Said about the orange.

Now that model needs some wash and highlightning. Keep it up!

Good to be green

I think my red wash is Baal Red, highlight with 50/50 memphisto red and blood red, fine highlight with pure bloodred. Wash the bone with agarax earthshade before drybrushing back to the colour you used and highlight with bleached bone. Maybe a fine highlight o skull white.

i like the scheme and i actually quite liked the orange - however i think that colour (either orange or green) should be kept for the lenses, then use a metal on the helmet tubes & centre of the harness.

Always good to see more sallies, even if they aren't exactly sallies DO you have a chapter badge in mind?

p.s - The blue purity seals are a nice touch

Thanks varakir I wasn't really sure about doing the lens so did all green but I like your idea. I was thinking of just the salamanders logo but haven't really thought about. And I like the blue seals as well.
