|Space Marines have come a long way since the 80's!|
I selected a Rogue Trader Space Marine for chilvers_industries upcoming Olden Demon 2022 painting competition. Although I wanted to start painting the model weeks ago, it took me a while to find a 2nd edition style backpack for the model. Eventually I was successful in getting one via eBay and was able to start painting! I decided to paint the model to fit alongside the other Dark Angels I have been painting over the last year or so. Although the scale is quite different to new models, with a similar paint scheme, I figured the model would fit in, and be a good testament to how GW models have changed over the years!
|Like my other Dark Angels, I painted the Space Marine's armor via dry-brushing, using Caliban Green and Game Color Glacier Blue.|
|This was the first Space Marine miniature I ever purchased, happily in a new coat of paint!|
|The model has various mechanical boxes on their waist that I painted using several Vallejo Metal Color silvers.|
