Hi all, unfortunately I dont really paint anymore and its been a long time since I did, but the name is Dave and I am looking for inspiration as I have just bought a large space marine that I want to repaint. it was offered as a 10 year long service award to Games workshop staff and its about 8" tall. Lots of detail and currently in faux bronze. Its crying out for its true ultramarine colours and I just want to look around and take advice really. Im in no rush though, as I really just play online and read the books, so its a one off project really.

if anyone has had experience of paining the larger sized figures please let me know.

Here is what it looks like

thanks for reading

Welcome to the Heresy my friend! I am officially colored green with envy that you have such a set of models in your possession!

Anyways, while I drool here on the keyboard I'd refer you to the tutorials section and check out the project logs as well. I am sure there are a few others who have painted such glorious figures.

So yeah. Welcome, Observe the rules and have fun!
Welcome to the heresy. You are lucky to have such a great model. I would also recommend you head to the modeling & painting section, the tutorials section and project logs. There are lots of good painters that have left a ton of good advice in the those sections.
Magnificent model. I can understand you wanting to do it justice. There are plenty of guys here who would be able to assist you. Unfortunately I am not one of them as my painting is mediocre at best.
Welcome to heresy.
