Creating a Space Marine Chapter - Aurelius Legion Captain
Here is the final piece of my initial work on creating my own chapter and their colour scheme. I painted up this guy after my two Tactical Squads, Dreadnaught and Terminators but haven't managed to show him yet as I was distracted with my weathering testing which by the way is still on-going and in the not to distant future some posts will go up to show how they turned out.
To recap the paints used are as follows :
Armour - Chaos Black with hard edge highlight of Codex Grey with final Ghostly Grey edge.
Shoulder Pads and Arms - base coat of Scorched Brown with several thin coats of Bubonic Brown finished off with a wash, in the recesses only, of Ogryn Flesh .
Cloak / Cape outside - Red Built up from Scab Red to Red Gore with a highlight of Blood Red. washed down with mix of Ogryn Flesh and Devland Mud.
Cloak / Cape inside - I didn't want the stark white and went for a Bleached Bone finish built up over several layers.
I think this is my best work yet and was very happy with the way he turned out. However every time I look at the picture or the model I think I can improve him still. I guess I might go back and improve the shading on the Yellow armour as per Ron's ( From the Warp) suggestions on of these days.
Well enjoy the rest of the pictures and let me know what you think of him.
