The Sons of Wrath - Primaris Marines!

Hello again,


Twice in a week, oh boy I'm on fire! One of the main things I have been painting for my personal use in my absentee period has been my Primaris Space marines. I've been trying out a very different look to my usual painting style and so these have taken much longer than usual to get up to any sort of level for using on the battlefield. 

Today I'm just going to show you some of the Intercessors and Hellblasters in their current state. Aside from needing to touch up various points of the models in order to smooth the colours out, I need to apply, chapter, squad and rank marking as well as apply some minor battle damage. So not a lot!!!













The schemes for the sergeants will be the inverse of this and then the HQ's and other individual elites will also have differing schemes of grey and orange. Here are a few snaps of Sergeants in early stages of painting:





That's all for today, but I hope it whets your appetite for this force. I'm hoping to have a whole 2000 points finished to at least the standard of the Intercessors at the start by the end of this month so they will at least be table top quality to play some games with. 

Peace out,

Rob

  1. Very nice indeed mate, the inverse scheme in particular works really well - I was worried it might look odd when I read that but you've carried it off really well. My only comment would be the osl is too much for my personal taste, but I realise that me and it's such a distinctive element of your painting that it's no criticism.

    Glad to see you back on the bandwagon!

    1. Just to echo Nick's comment here the OSL seems to spread to far. Looking well all said though.

  2. Good to see you blogging again mate, is this a variation on the original orange and blue you started with? I like it, dark and subdued like true Rob style.

    1. Aye it is, the orange red has remained but been taken down a notch. Thanks Siph :)

  3. The inverted version really does fit in nicely with the regular. You've got a really good balance between the two colours, and they're both fairly muted, so even inverting the scheme is a somewhat subtle effect.

    1. The all over orange will be brought up from those sergeant pictures but only as far as the shoulders in the top pics so nothing to bright!
