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 :

Black undercoat.

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.

  2. Looking good, Vitor! Still loving the yellow, black, and red combination you have going here.

    Deleted last post because for some reason I missed the explanation of how you got the colors. Reading FTL.
