Ultramarines Scouts Squad

Holy shit people… It’s been forever since I’ve made a post.  My apologies, but life gets in the way sometimes.

So I finished a long over due project.  My Ultramarines Scout squad as you may have guessed from the aptly named title.

These guys are painted in the same scheme as my Ultramarine combat squad.

  • Legs and Arms – Starting from Chaos Black base coat paint the entire area Graveyard Earth.  Paint the area Kommando Khaki taking care not to get any in the deepest recesses.  Highlight again with a 1:1 mix of Kommando Khaki and Skull White.
  • Camo Cloaks – I started with a 1:1 mix of Chaos Black and Adeptus Battlegrey.  I then highlighted with straight Adeptus Battlegrey.  The camo pattern was done using varying greys and randomly mixing them to get all kinds of different colours.  (I honestly couldn’t tell you, but the sheer randomness made for a good effect I think.)  The inside of the cloak started with a 1:1 mix Chaos black and Shadow Grey followed by a highlight of straight Shadow Grey and finished with a further highlight of a 1:1 mix Shadow Grey and Space Wolves Grey.
  • Flesh – Tanned Flesh was used as a base coat.  Dwarf Flesh was then applied to all but the deepest recesses.  Finally the most pronounced features were highlighted with Elf Flesh.
  • Aquila – Starting from a Chaos Black undercoat I painted the whole thing Shinning Gold.  I then painted Brown Ink into the recesses (this could be substituted for Devlan Mud).  Once the ink was dry I carefully highlighted the very edges with a 1:1 mix of Shinning Gold and Mithril Silver

Next up… who knows… I have so many projects going on right now, but I’m working on completing the Ultramarine Tactical squad.  Thanks for stopping by.
