As promised earlier, a few pictures of my "finished" Space Marines. The quotations are because, as this is my first ever attempt at painting, one of their number had his armor come out closer to purple than blue due to poor primer choice. He will be shelved to be fixed at a later date, I am moving on to Orks. Apologies for the somewhat strange lighting, they looked fine and then came up odd after the transfer to the computer.
Nothing fancy, painting in general, much less miniatures, is something I have no experience with at all. So no wash for shading, no weathering, nothing beyond simple colors. Good practice though, I am getting more adept at using a smaller brush, though the level of that adeptness is all relative.
View from the back. I have seen more adept painters freehand squad number markers and other details on these, but my attempt was splotchy, so that will have to wait until I get a great deal more practice. This picture reminds me I need to paint the bases brown for the two on the left.
Anyways, I am feeling somewhat accomplished at getting this done, since it is a big step for me and I feel a bit more prepared to tackle the Orks I have piled up next to my work table. Next up should be some Boyz.
