Fists of Bosh test Scheme

Right, here's my test model for a plain old silver fist marine...

Black is the main colour, of that i have no doubt. At the moment the model is Black undercoat, drybrushed with a 50/50 Fenris Grey/Chaos Black. Planning on extreme highlighting with Adeptus Battlegrey.

Trim and helmet is iyanden darksun, covered with golden yellow and highlit with sunburst yellow.

Hands are Tinbitz covered with chainmail, a black inkwash, and will be highlit Mithril Silver. I might take it down to just one hand.

Bolter is so far just some Red Gore, and this is where i have the most misgivings. A) a red bolter makes him look like a McMarine. Red Gore works the best of all the reds but I'm still not sure.

Options are... different helmet colour, different bolter colour.

thoughts, feelings?

Dam I wish I had gotten in earlier on this, my personal favourite was the yellow gun but no matter. I think you will have to be very careful of making sure the silver of the gun only stays in the parts which it is supposed to stay in other wise you will loose the silver hand. Thats why I choose the yellow but good luck with, looking forward to seeing more.
That might work better actually, it will stop the merging between gun and fist. Thats just my opinion though.

The most important question at the moment is:

"Is the chapter name, color scheme etc as it is now sitting with you right, does it feel right?"

, if the answer is no which i suspect it is you have to keep working on it, if you don't you'll be changing every five minutes which you really don't want to be doing. Don't rush into this - the end result is never good.
