Creating a Space Marine Chapter - Aurelius Legion Tactical Squad Fully Painted

Well here we are, a fully painted Tactical Squad.

Just to recap the time frame again. This took me about two months to paint and was painted just over a year and a half ago.

The painting how to is as follows :

Black undercoat.

Armour - Chaos Black with hard edge highlight of Codex Grey.

Shoulder Pads and Arms - Yellow base coat of Scorched Brown with several thin coats of Bubonic Brown finished off with a wash, in the recesses only, of Ogryn Flesh .

Tabard and Aquila of Sergeant - 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.

I think they turned out pretty sweet myself but let me know what you think with a comment below.


PS : Next Post - Terminators


  1. Looks good! I really like how they turned out - keep up the great work!

  2. I really like the end result, nice one

  3. Nice color scheme, looks awesome as full squad ^^

  4. I like what you have going here and I am a big fan of alternative paint schemes.

    My only comment is, from the pictures, the yellow does not look like it has much shading. it makes it look kind of stark against the black. Now I would not change the colors or pattern, but I might emphasize the shading on the shoulder pads a little more so it all goes together more smoothly.

    But it could just be the pictures, I'm not sure.

    Looking forward to those terminators.

  5. The yellow is a flat colour, I was not confident enough to blend in a lighter and darker stage. maybe in the rest of my army!

    Thanks for the comments.
