Bones IMEF Marines

Recommended Posts

Spent a about a day doing the six IMEF marines (1 yesterday and then the other 5 today), so I guess that qualifies as speed painting. The first one took the longest as I worked out the color scheme. Was experimenting with demi-metallics as described in LTPK 5 for much of the armour (demi-metal = mix of normal color paint with a metallic paint) Much of the armour was a mix of one drop Reaper Honed Steel plus 2-3 drops various greens. I used Army Painter Strong Tone Ink to do the shadowing.

I tweaked your first picture to have a better look at the detail and colors.

Man, they look amazing. If you don't mind me showing the result.

Thanks all. I adjusted the exposure on my camera to brighten it up and reshot them with a background.

Outstanding work! The demi-metallics give the armor a good "painted metal" appearance. I'll have to quietly borrow the idea when I get to painting my own Bones IMEF squad.
