Hey Meldon, love the Marines and the Tanks! I like how you highlighted all the edges of the tanks and such, well done. Seriously, I feel you on having a nice clean looking army. At least thats how I feel about my Dark Angels. I have had a couple people in the past where I used to play that said I should dirty my tanks up a bit...I thought to myself and said no freaking way! I think of Marines as appearing very sharp, clean, and the best of the the best with their equipment being very well maintained. Secondly, Ive never really tried to dirty up a tank because Im scared im going to FUBAR it. However, I will be learning how to do it very soon with my Death Korps of Krieg. Amyways, great job man, keep it up.

Really nice tanks. Same clean cut look as the first models. It's the command squad that really stands out for me. Something in the simplicity I really like, especially the company champion.

Thanks everyone for the +rep and great comments, it really motivates me to keep painting. Well, I got a request for some more pics of the banner bearer so here goes. I have also been playing around with the settings on the camera so I think these pics are a bit better.




I also made some close ups on the banner and the marine.
On the Marine you also see the 4 layers of blue quite well. So if anyone want to try this method of painting blue you can see I leave quite a bit of paint from the previous layer. When one layer is done you just add white to the Ultramarine blue and start painting the next layer. Fort the last one you add quite alot of white and just paint the edges or the mort raiser areas of the armour.

As for the Nid in the middle of the banner I can´t take credit for that one. I actually got one of my friends to paint it in his nid army colours

That is my poor little Tyranid warrior on that banner and it will be a pleasure to kill the marines and reclaim it for the swarm

I´m going for a "just landed" look on my army. I want the to look like they just walked out of the landers and droppods after som time in space, therefor the the clean look

I have som closeups on the tanks on some page here, or do you want to see anyone a bit more..?? Just let me know what you want to se closer and I will fix some pics of it
Right now I´m working on sniperscouts, almost done with 2 of them, will put up pics as soon as I can.

There are no friends in the real world, just less hostile enemies

sound, just had a good look at your tanks i think they look a bit unfinished as there is no shading recesses which would really help bring the tank to life i think the lights on the hatch look bloody spot on really good im goin to try and copy that effect, i have a few scout snipers myself unpainted ive never used them to any great effect in a game as yet so ive put them towards the bottom of my list, ill keep a look out to see how you get on with them.
