Primarch Project Honor Guard 1 by TheShepster Primarch Project Honor Guard 1 by TheShepster
Okay, so this is the first Honour Guard Member belonging to my Imperial Fists Primarch Project (WIP: [link] Rogal Dorn: [link] and [link]). I'm quite satisfied with the mini, especially how the eagle on the shield turned out in the end. The scroll reads "Protector" or at least should do so... :)
Sadly, due to the flash of my camera, some of the golden and coppery parts look rather yellow-brown-ish... :(

As always, comments and critique welcome.

What exactly do you mean by off? Imperial Fists are yellow... If you mean that it looks a bit too dull, that could be because of the yellow-ochre shading...

Anyway, thanks... ^^

Oh I know they're supposed to be yellow It just looks a like the coats aren't even. to thick in some spots to thin in others.

Ahh, that's indeed because of the yellow-ochre shading. The colour I used was about 15 years old and not good anymore... :(

Thanks... ^^

I had to start painting my Primarch's honour guard at some point. I thought starting with the close combat guys would be a good idea... :D

Well, since I never read a 40k novel (I just started with "Sons of Dorn") and don't read much in the Lexicanum... ;) :D

Thanks for liking the mini, though... :)
