Iron Knight, Silver Skull Test models

Hey. I did these models as a test of color scheme and to see how different they would look.
This is a Silver Skulls Tactical marine. Its a boltgun metal body with a heavy wash of badab black. The chest eagle and helmet is mithril silver. the Silver Skulls chapter is an old chapter that has been around for a while.

This assault marine is from the Iron Knights Chapter. They are thought to be a Imperial fist successor. This color scheme is black shoulder inset and helmet and a boltgun metal body. The body is not washed at all and the chest eagle is the same color as the body. The Shield on his shoulder is from a Assault Terminator kit. I trimmed the back nob off of it so it sits flush on the shoulder pad trim.

And here are the two marines together. Each has a distinct look and the difference in bases also makes them stand out separately.
Well That is it for now. Until next time.

Lets Make a Model: Battlewagons (Part 6)

Hey everyone. Its been a while but this next section of the battlewagon is done.

These are the parts used for this section.
Firstly for the front you want to put this part on. It sits inside the two sides so be sure to dry fit. The exhaust on the back is easy enough. When you assemble the exhaust be careful to make sure it lines up with the points to connect with the battlewagon

This part slides onto the front of the battlewagon.

here the top was added. I washed the metal bits with devlan mud and badab black after attaching them to the model. Once the model is fully done i will touch up the paint jobs a bit and weather the model.
Until next time...
