Order of Navaar
The red shoulder pads and arms were symbolic of the blood spilled during the 'Battle of Blood River' which turned the water red and the blue is symbolic of the clean water after the carnage had been washed away.
Here is a painted example of a AOBR terminator and a tactical marine (photo take with mobile phone camera).
I really enjoyed painting up the colour scheme and from a black undercoat I used Ultramarine blue as the base coat and a heavy wash of Asurmen Blue followed by some edge highlighting. For the red I used a base coat of scab red then a layer of red gore, a heavy wash of equal parts devland mud and baal red with a final edge highlight of blood red. I was happy with the result but thought about getting a wet look on the red areas as if the blood it represented was still fresh so I applied a wash of red ink.
Hope you like them, any constructive feedback is welcome, enjoy!
