I like the shadow panther scheme, but the white/bone looks very flat against the highlighting on the rest of the model.

+rep for all the freehanding, very nice stuff.

Yeah I'm jealous of your free hand chapter badge painting ability. I tried to do some using the technique in White Dwarf recently and I still failed miserably. So yeah, have some rep for an assortment of cool looking Marines.

Thanks for the feedback guys, much appreciated.

The shoulder guards have been changed on the later batch, to all blue, with a red fist.
I have struggled to highlight the bone parts on the Sergeant, but I agree it does look a little flat compared to the purple, any suggestions?

some really nice freehanding there, with an oldschool painting style. Whereabouts in Bristol are you? that's where I live too.

Personally i'd give it a brown wash and then use the base colour to bring out the highlights.

Damn!!! I used to have one of those termies a few years ago, but I gave it away. I'm jealous that you've got a squad of them.

If I was to give any pointers on the painting, I'd have to say that the armour looks a bit blank. This is more of a model observation than a painting observation. I think I'm so spoiled for detail on the new models, that it makes the old ones look a bit plain.

and once again. /jealous
