Colour Scheme

I want this army to be different. The models help but a big part of this project is going to be the colour scheme.

The Horus heresy was a dark time and the images and artwork from Forge World and this month's White Dwarf (October '12) are filled with mood lighting, dust, dirt and grime. As a result I want my Ultramarines to feel like they're part of these dark times.

I've gone for a darker shade of blue trimmed with a light gold. Everything is based on the GW Ultramarines scheme but I've dropped it down a notch. This is yet to be finalised but I'm pretty happy with it so far...even if it is a bit Night Lords

Order of Service:
Chaos Black Spray (undercoat)
Kantor Blue (layer)
Alaitoc Blue (layer)
Drakenhof Nightshade (wash)
Alaitoc Blue (highlight)
Guilliman blue (glaze)
Hoeth Blue (extreme highlight)

Any thoughts on it would be appreciated.

  1. Is a bit 'Night Lords' but I do think it's a very cool idea. It looks like an Ultramarine under the cover of darkness.

    Enjoying your blog so far.
