Space Marines 10 – Relictors

The final Space Marine in my box is painted in the colour scheme of the Relictors. This is the second time in a row I’ve thrown my reluctance to use true metallic paints to the wind, this time with a silver colour scheme. Once again, these Vallejo paints are a joy to use, although need to be treated a little different to regular acrylics, something I’m still practising with.

I’ve not got a whole lot to say about this guy. He was fun to paint, and admittedly looks a little bit like a Cylon! On to the photos!

I didn’t mess around too much with this guy. I stuck to black for the recess shading, which looks solid, the eyes are good – I’ve kinda got these down now, at least when I have a steady enough hand to get them right – and the little go-fasta stripes on his chainsaw look pretty nicely highlighted too!

All tips, trick, hints, and constructive criticism is appreciated, so feel free to message me in the comments, or over on Facebook.

This will be my last painting post for a few weeks, as we’re in lockdown at the moment, and I don’t have my painting stuff with me at the moment. I’ve a couple more marines from the newer style set painted and ready for photos, and a selection of other chapter colours to finish out that box with. After that, I hope to move on to some fantasy minis!

As lockdown continues, hopefully we’re starting to turn the corner here, and life will be able to get back to normal in the not too distant future for us and everyone else. I hope everyone is well, taking care of themselves, and sticking to the rules to keep themselves healthy. It’s tough, but I think the light is starting to appear at the end of the tunnel!
