Thanks for all the support and comments!

I think if you gave him a company champion shoulder pad, the upper part would be perfect for some marble effects.
Also, I like the way the cloaks are coming along so far, very promising stuff. It's made me think about putting my storm scouts on magnet bases
Keep up the fine work dude.
I am with Reaper. I think that one of your feather motifs on the marble champion shoulder pad would be ace.
Do it! Most of the storm scouts can be placed on a nicely adapted base with no trouble at all. Also gives you an excuse to make more elaborate bases which can be fun to do every once in a while!
I was pretty decided on how which shoulders to use (as can be seen in the old picture of the miniature built) and sadly I think I only have one pair of company champion shoulderpads left (which I'm saving for later unless I can get more of them cheap somehow/somewhere...) so I didn't want to use them for this particular miniature (rather saving them for more tech adepts ans such). I also need to keep some kind of similarity between all the sanguinary priests specially now that I've begun making them with magnetized backpacks so I can change between the normal apothecary backpack and a jump pack.
Also, when it comes to marble effects it strictly a red armour effect and the arms + shoulderpads are always white on my miniatures (only exception sofar is the tech adept with company champion shoulder pads) which kind of rules it out for this particular miniature.
Anyway, now that I'm done with this miniature I can move on to my many other projects (sculpting and building).
the feather symbol on one of the lower legs might be cool as well.
Taken, using the big spaces on the legs is a superb idea!
Hey Xeno, I’ve been following your thread for a while now and I got to say that you army is bad-ass man. Love the theme you got going on here, even though you have done a lot of epic work up to this point I have to say that the scouts you have put together are the best yet, I cannot wait until you got these guys painted – keep up the good work and don’t let those cloaks get you down - they are turning out sweet man.
I'm glad you like what I have done so far! Half of it probably wouldn't have been made if it wasn't for the continuing support of the Heresy members, so a lot of kudos goes right back to all you guys!
It will probably be a while before I paint my first scout, I want to finish of the cloak first but after that I probably won't be able to hold myself off any longer (knowing myself, hehe). Then again I have to come up with how I want to paint them also, which I haven't decided yet...
Paintjob has indeed swayed my opinion on the model xeno, I am opposed to having a shoulderpad, I think it makes the mini look much more techy(?).
Then I'm probably going to disappoint you again since I want to use a shoulderpad on him :D
That's lovely and impressive and all, but I'm not going to try such an effect on 5-10 scouts (they're not worth the time vs points quota).
I am new to project logs
This is some insane painting I love your work the white/red death company, the tanks.
Great job +rep(most I could give
Project logs are the best thing on the forums, I just love browsing through them, reading about peoples ideas and stealing inspiration!
Thanks for your comment and rep
I with the lot in awe of this thread. The free-hand is something to behold and strive for.
I also wanted to say that this cat's enthusiasm just brighten my day significantly (however pathetic that may seem).
Freehanding actually comes pretty easily after a while, as long as you keep to less exact symbols (no perfect cirles or rectangles) it's just trial and error. Of course any painting experience helps a lot at the start.
Stories? You want me to tell you stories? You should know I'm not a storyteller, young brother.
What did you whisper under your breath, recruit?! You think I am a bitter sceptic, do you? Oh, I wouldn't say the fact that I lost my arm has made me bitter, brother, but rather the fact that my arm reminds me of the Brethren I couldn't save that very day in that gruesome battle. But that aside I don't think there's any reason to uphold each and every battle-brother in here to the status of heroes by telling younger brothers, such as yourself, about the fanatic exploits and heroism of our chapters veterans.
You know, at the end of the day, each and every one of us is a hero, apart from you, and you should know that even if you might be reluctant to acknowledge it. But don't worry, if you're such a storyteller then you'll have plenty of time to tell future recruits stories about our exploits as time passes, and you know why? Because I'll make sure you'll survive each and every wound you'll manage to suffer as you propel yourself straight into the enemy lines with the vigour of a flock of phoenixes and an ember burning brighter than a star. And I will abide you with that service because that is my calling and that is my honour. Or as you would have put it, my story.

On a side note I'm overwhelmed by how many different colours I'm using for these miniatures:
C&C welcomed as always.
