Note to self: Don’t burn yourself out on your own blog.
Never mind, I’m back now. Have a space marine or five.
The moustache on this guy was pure whimsy on my part.

Note, no squad markings as I couldn’t decide between tactical or devastator squad:

I’m quite fond of the squad number on the lower leg, probably impractical from battlefield purposes but it does fit with the 40k vibe.

The veteran sergeants helmet really breaks the colours up. The Imperial Fists logo is a transfer cut slightly at 10 and 2 o’clock to conform to the shape of the shoulder pad.

Sternguard shoulder pads on the vet means he can be added to almost any squad type without looking out of place.

The blue gradient was created on photoshop and printed out to use as backdrop for the photo. I wanted the retro Eavy Metal photo look but by accident the blue and dark yellow face each other on the colour wheel so really make the figures pop out.

Any questions about the colours used, transfers, colour theory or whatever else you have just pop something in the comments and i’ll get back to you.
