This is my Death Company. I reprimed 10 of them yellow to black with the intent to have black as the dominate color and highlight yellow near the greaves and feet, ends of the thrusters and front vents of the jump pack and a fade to black on the face plate.

Note the force weapons, most of which are GK extra bits.

So to sum up, I have three projects going none of which are finished (yet):

1. Terminators.
2. Siege Marines
3. Death Company

Just gonna waffle between the projects to spice it up a bit.

Ah, you're killing me! I love those siege marines. Some of my most favorite imperial sculpts. Those and the Grey Knight Terminators are awesome to me.

Eventually.... Eventually...
All of my armies and current projects.

One combat squad finished and one more to go. This might actually be the first time I get a challenge done.

Now, here's a model that's going to work me--and one I'm wicked excited to spruce up. I have some great ideas (I think) to give it some pop and sizzle. Again, we'll see as what I think will happen doesn't always. As I collect models (which is more the driving force than army composition) I am realizing the need to constantly revise my list. The Caestus will need be put in it proper place amongst the rank and file of the Lamenters and changes will be recorded accordingly.

Note the Scibor plates on the rams--not sure how I'll do the 'wear and tear' as those beauties will need to show an appropriate "slam into a giant Imperium ship" beating. Additionally I placed some extra skulls along the sides of each boom for character. I have extra skull stencils that I'll judiciously use to compliment the 'boom skeletal bling.'

You could have "paint" in the recesses and have the raised areas look like bare stone, so they look like they were once fully painted but it has been worn down.
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

Playing with the Death Company motif. Have done some basic highlights via dry (and wet) brushing in addition to working in some rough, hand done squad markings in combination with water transfers. Not sure how I feel about them yet but will know more as I spend the time refining the work. That's how it usually works with me.

As always, a w ork in progress...

A really interesting look there, I quite like it, the faded transition is well done too.
