Greetings, my friends! I painted up my first ever space marine model yesterday. It was SOOOO easy! I'm thinking there's no excuse for SM players to go with an unpainted army. I did this guy in a couple of hours and I'm such a slow painter that this says something. Essentially I followed the instructions provided by the How to Paint Citadel Miniatues: Dark Vengeance guide with two exceptions:
1. I followed the instructions for the Crimson Slaughter bone for the white. I like the effect and I didn't have any of the paints indicated for the Dark Angels white. Looks great still.
2. I added a layer of Bloodletter Glaze over the eye lenses. Without it I thought it looked too pink.
