I've painted one Flesh Tearer Tactical Marine so far, using the new GW transfer seals that are available.
The next model is a Tactical Marine from the Lamenters chapter. Obviously the most challenging parts of this chapter are the checkered shoulder pad and the sickly pale yellow of their armor.
I was able to make the Lamenters yellow from mixing Iyanden Darksun, Skull White, and Goblin Green in varying amounts to end up with a hue I felt matched the artwork in the Forge World Imperial Armour 9 Badab War book.
Next was painting the checkered shoulder pad that is iconic of the Lamenters chapter. So being the impatient bastard that I am, I decided to try and paint the Lamenters checkered shoulder pad first.
Starting with just the yellow shoulder, I base coated it with watered down Ceramite White base paint. Then using Abaddon Black, I drew in the lines for the checkers.
Using watered down Abaddon Black, I painted in the squares. I would’ve used a micron pen but I couldn’t find it so I used a super fine detail brush.
Using Ceramite White, I drew a circle for the center of the Chapter’s symbol. Then I outlined it with Abaddon Black.
Finally I drew in the heart and blood drop of the chapter using Evil Sunz Scarlet.
