Default [Anphicar's] Golden Hands Space Marines(UPDATED-AUG 7)

--These models will not be wodnerful, this is my first army I have actually painted, so you will now be watching my progress through my painting-- I also am learning how to take good model photos.

(below)This is my first painted model, ever. Paint is a bit thick, with spots missing color.You can kinda make out red on his gun and on the gravel. Its from where he bludgeoned a poor cultist.
<Here youcan kinda see the freehand chapter logo im working on. (Again, my termie isntdone)

This is my first time doing flesh, and my second model ever.
<My first Terminator. About my 5th model. He isnt done yet.

My third model. He is the guy i needed info on for leather/green cloaks.
<My first "Dirty" model.
The back.
<My first sergeant.

The only 5 Tac Marines i have done, in a squad.
After my first termie is done, i'll do my Chappy.

Thats it for now, folks. I plan to update this as i make any progess. Keep viewing!

i like the scheme, its good that you're aware of your limitations, and i look forward to seeing you come on in leaps and bounds.

my one piece of advice, undercoat black. even for that scheme. the extra effort is well worth it. plus astronomican grey makes it fairly simple. also, wastch the bits in between armour plates, do you want that black? break up the white a little..

a nice 1:15 ratio of black/glaze would go nicely over that white. Then use the white again to touch up. All in all very good use of color... i like them.

How do you go about making/applying that?

in that case, that is some awesome white.

as far as 22's advice, i did a similar thing on the Hands of Dorn. water down black in and apply it carefull to the recesses. i'd do that all over the white corners. just be careful.

Nice dude - I wasn't sure when I saw the B&C painter pic but now I've seen the models I'm a fan.

Really likeing the termie color scheme. They are really going to stand out aganist the rest of the force - just like they should.

For first models Anph, you got some nice shit going on there. I agree with Tor, looking forwards to seeing how much you improve with each mini.

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?

Thanks all!

Tor, is there a specific pic you did that to that i can see as an example?

I wish i could take better, more detailed pictures. Then i could better show you the force weapons/ NMM i did on the chest eagle.

Question: How should i paint my Chappy?

I will NOT paint him black. Sorry fluff-nazis, i wont do it.

I am open to ideas to incorpotate black, though.

As you see--im primarily working with Skull White, Dark Angels green, and Goblin Green. Gold goes on hands and chest eagles only.

Yeah. Thats a good paint job for your first few models. I swear they look better than my first model. But as you mentioned youself, You need to thin the paint down. I'll post a Tutorial on doing white armour over black undercoat if you want.

Kepp up the effort.
