Last night I got the shoulder pads finished and glued on. This kit is fantastic in terms of options, so I chose the imperial eagle and crux terminatus for my captain as I felt those embodied what it means to be a Genesis Chapter Space Marine. I didn't think bone white would look the greatest with my color scheme so I painted the insignia gold.
I went back and forth over what color to do the cloak. Finally decided to do brown since gray would match the scouts' cloaks and the captain should look completely different from the scouts. I was too afraid to try purple, and brown ended up working quite well.
|Looking good, just need that head to be useful|
|Eagle headed power generator|
The eagle heads were not difficult to paint. Just a simple undercoat of Chaos Black Spray with Gehenna's Gold on top. I went lightly over them with the brush to keep all the detail.
|Progress on the purity seals|
|Holster and extra purity seals|
The holster and purity seals were a last minute decision, but they help make the unit more customized and look more "captainy." Besides, everyone knows extra purity seals mean extra righteousness.
Tomorrow I will do a full photo shoot in the studio. I have also finished basing Tactical Squad Chronos, so I will post those pictures as well. Look for some group shots of my entire 750 point battle group too!
