Space Marine Captain 1999

Other than Biel Tan Eldar, this group of models have been the ones more than any other than in the Warhammer Universe, which means all models, that I wanted to paint the most. Original released in 1999 Command Squad. As much of my childhood models, I want to recreate the shit out of it lol Eavy metal style pure and simple!!! As with the Wild Riders I have done… I still need to do another 3 of em :O

7th of April – Undercoat and feeling excited

8th April – Ultramarine Blue – Black lid hex pot

It would seem i didn’t take as many photos as I have in the past. I think its partly to do with, but now after just 3 days of painting him I realised it was a lot harder than I remember. Painting 28mm that is. Coming from the Asurmen Statue this was what maybe caused the frustration. The Eldar statue is 120mm I do believe. But I found the shoulder pad and chest piece the difficult parts, frustratingly so even.

17-19th of April – Doing the Face

I honestly had no idea what I was doing lol. I remember the guys on painting courses saying put in reds and blues, which I did. Honestly the face isn’t really worthy of putting which colours I used, but feck it you know. So it was a base of:

  • coat of Bronzed Flesh
  • A wash of Reikland Fleshshade (all over)
  • Kislev Flesh on the rough highlights (higher spots?)
  • A touch of red gore mixed with Bronzed Flesh and put around the eyes
  • Same with ultramarine blue and around the eyes
  • Then bleached bone on the highest points…

20th of April – Touching up the Highlights

With the model done, it came to putting the Banner on. This little bastard was so old there was no sticky left in it lol

I tried initial to use PVA glue, but nothing.

I ended up with using super glue on the top bits and main section

I then tried to put the ultramarine logo on the shoulder pad, but that failed so I thought fuck it. I was going to paint it on but forget.
