A few weeks ago, my FLGS (Game Vault) started the Summer escalation league. Knowing how hard it can be to keep up each week, I worked out a deal where I would give a discount to anyone in the league who needed a particular unit painted in order to keep up each week.
When I walked in the other night to pick up my mail order for an upcoming conversion, a friend of mine happened to be painting up some of his guys for his Black Templar force. Next thing I knew I had this 6 man squad to get done for him.
The color scheme was kept real simple and clean making for some sharp looking models. He chose white helmets and I ended up making the shoulder pad trim white as well to balance out the top of the models. They all have a spot of gold to unify the squad and make them stand out from the rest of the units in the force.
I actually learned a quick way to add a subtle highlight to helmet lenses while painting these guys as well. I'll get it posted in the coming days if possible. I usually just add the reflection in outer corner of the lens, but this time I added a slight glow to the lenses on the inner corners making the lenses really come to life.
I managed a quick turn around on them, squeezing them in between the last stages of my Eldar Titan project so they can hit the battlefield this week.
