Ah, always good trying out new things I guess. Seeing as its black, surely it wouldnt be difficult to go back over and "fix"?

I think I see what you were trying now. Perhaps it was just a case of needing a few more steps with the transition of black to grey? Perhaps even a wash to tie it together? Just an idea

Hey Meldon the marines are looking awesome, love the Raider and Stormtalon as well.

I didn't really notice the grey patches on the Chaplain until they were pointed out, but I know what you mean about an effect that is subtle IRL, but looks more pronounced in the marco eye of a camera.

In regards to people gluing the sponsons of a Raider to the back. It's how GW do it. I looked it up and sure enough the Land Raider and LR Crusader on the GW website both have their sponsons to the rear (and these -are- the Studio models at that) whilst the Redeemer, in Salamaders colours (and the model chosen for the 360 degree display) has its sponsons to the front.

From a logical side my brain says 'put the sponsons to the front so your Lascannons don't shoot your own Terminators', my eyes say 'but GW has modelled it like this on their Studio model, shouldn't I do it the same' and gaming side of me is saying 'Well if I put the sponsons at the front, I have an additional inch, compared to if it had been at the back'

The Crusader/Redeemer kit details don't say this, but picture speak louder than words... http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...Id=prod1560025

Back on topic however,

Your Ultramarines are looking fantastic and I look forward to seeing what else you come up with for them mate.

Have you invited a Blood Angel to fly your Stormtalon? Or is it just the standard "red-pilot-armour" of the Ultramarines?

Hmm, you might be on to something there, a black wash may tone it down some and tie it in a little better. I think I will try that as soon as the weekend is over. (At work all weekend)

That´s where I got the sponsons in the back slots from! I knew I hade seen that somewhere else but could not quite remeber where, thanks! I havent even thought about the gaming side of putting them in the front, now the next one is definitely putting them in fron on the next one

No, as he´s a pilot and therefore a bit more techmarine oriented the the rest of the "ordinary" marines I have given him the red colours of a techmarine. And I also wanted him to stand out a little bit, in blue armour I think he would have been a bit invisible.

I think that a sniper wearing blue while trying to hide is a stupid and probably dead sniper. I think the scheme fits their more stealthy roll compared to the other marines
That's always been my opinion. While Scouts can look crisp and uniform in Chapter colors, it's somewhat absurd, lol.

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

I see! Didn't know about the red beeing techmarine colour. My mistake, my xeno scum.
