well here it the rest of the scout going through the progress of being done. I used devlen mud to was the gold on the sgt but did'nt like the way it comes out. makes its look dull so back to washing the gold parts with chestnut ink wash instead.here they have just gone through the base coat black then a coat of orkhide shade which was then gone over with snot green. then a wash of thraka green.and vermin brown used for holster and washed with devlen mud.here they get catachan green pants and sleeves.here i finish up all the other work to be done. I have to get a smaller brush to do eyes on a space marine.comments and criticism welcome.

I think they look good and now that it is more complete I think the helmets are a good choice.

and here is a pic of the funny looking rhino rebuilt. but is going to get a strip down and a repaint.the crane arm is scratch built using plastructs plastics parts. the cables is heavy duty thread painted boltgun metal and then ink washed black. it did have a full interior. but im saving that for a new project for a new tech marine rhino.

Really good so far. Have you tried using Baal red wash as a substitute for chestnut? I don't like Devlan as a gold wash either, but sadly my chestnut has run out. I've found Baal to be pretty decent.

Really impressive looking amount of models to paint, and you're doing a great job at that aswell. Good idea to replace the Arnold Schwarzenegger-clone scout heads by helmets. Personally, i'm not too fond of scout snipers. i play-tested them using proxy models against my bro's IG's, but they're not really my bag. I prefer a bitch-load of Tactical marines. Scout bikers, I do like however

Good luck with your WIP mate!
