Finally got one of these guys painted up... he came out alright I think. As a squad, they should look the part with the other guys models on the table.
I'm not gonna lie, I struggled a bit with the color scheme on this guy. According to the fluff, these guys (Inheritors) are silver with blue boots/greaves and gloves. All the other guys got a handy picture of what they're color scheme looks like. Me, I got nothing but a line of text.
It's a tough color scheme to make look good. I wanted to make sure I stuck to what the guys at Fantasy Flight gave us, because I feel like they trusted us to do the right thing with the army and not produce some off the wall units and crazy color schemes.
I decided to use two different kinds of metals on the model. One for the armour and one for the weapons to differentiate between them. I did a little more than line highlighting on the blue since it's the only real color on the model and I wanted it to look on par with the metals on the model.
I went back and forth on the white helmet, but decided to keep it in the end since the Chapter follows Codex markings and Veterans usually wear white helmets.
I went with red for the purity seals and other elements since the fluff mentioned red as the color they use for honor markings.
I didn't add anything extra to the model when it came to painting, I did all that with building them. I'll have a step by step on how I painted each part in one of my upcoming posts, this one was just to give you guys a glimpse of what they will look like when finished.
With just about a month left in the project, make sure you get involved and donate to the cause.
There's lots of great stuff up for grabs each week (including this weekend) so check out the Project blogroll on the right for the latest updates from all the guys involved in the project.
Once I get these guys done, I've got a Standard Bearer waiting for me.
EDIT: I just realized I don't have a unit marking on them denoting which squad number they are...
