|GW was kind enough to provide a blank to work from!|
With the number of Primaris Marines that are in the Dark Imperium boxed set, I am going to "hedge my bets" a bit and paint at least one of the squads as Imperial Fists - but with the yellow scheme I've used previously on my 40k models, not the newer Orange-ish yellow that has been the Imperial Fists standard in editions 7 and 8.
|No, not this paint scheme...|
|Inquisitor for reference|
I wanted the dark Turquoise in there as a nod to my current chapter - Green Templars, but too many colors in common with the Alpha Legion as a whole Still not totally what I wanted - but a start.
So I made the shoulder pads white, and left the Turquoise to the Aquilla and and stripe on the helmet. What looks like a brown trim is actually intended to be a dark bronze color. I thought of carrying over the red copper accents from the shoulder pads on the Inquisitor, but the process of washes might get a bit sloppy on trim.
This is all still a work in progress - which at least gives me something to do while I wait for the Dark Imperium box to arrive! I've seen some other "New" chapter paint schemes, and the one over at 30Kplus40K looks pretty good. Feedback is always appreciated, even if I don't immediately apply it to my painting!
