Finally got all the helmets painted

Turns out I dont have a drill bit small enough to drill out the Storm Bolters so they have been black dotted until I can source something suitable.

Overall I am very pleased with them. There are a bunch of things which I will eventually get around to fix (such as painting a consistent red for the power fists) however they are ready for my tournament now. So they will be left for the moment.

Well done - these have turned out really nicely. The white helms look really crisp. :clap:

Thanks gents, for once the picture does them credit. The different blue was an old idea for symbolizing Elite Status. I am tempted to replace it with a white bad. I have washed the fists since and they look more uniformly dark now so I am happier.

@Tesla - The initial idea was stolen from a templar model your dad sold me (with a refinement from the webs), its possible that the model was actually painted by you. So in effect you are either praising yourself or your dad ;)

Anyways I have been getting a little annoyed at my hugely beaten up objective markers and have stolen an idea from the webz (like I ever need my own ideas when they are probably on the web already).

Anyways here are my new objective markers WIP.

I rather like them (even the stubby one which isnt being caught in the breeze. Now Ive gotta wait for them to dry and then butcher them with some poor attempts at burned banners.

OK so I have made some progress with my objective markers

I have tried to make the banner look weathered and the edge look scorched. Its harder than it looks (especially as I dont have a particularly steady hand.) Still Im reasonably happy with the result.
