Emperor's Children Pre-Heresy (Challenge 1) by ReinoutJansen Emperor's Children Pre-Heresy (Challenge 1) by ReinoutJansen
This is my first attempt at painting a Marine of the Emperor's Children Legion.
As I wrote in my journal:
[link] I've been getting motivated to paint more models and to try and keep me motivated I set myself this task. It starts of well with the first model finished yesterday and an Imperial Fist Marine being underway! After that I'm thinking of a Dark Angel and a Iron Warrior...

I really value your feedback.

Download for full view.

I'll hope you guys will support me during this challenge I set for myself.

EDIT: After showing this to a budy of mine he gave me the advice to add the Legion symbol on his shoulder pad.. So I did.. For my first attempt at freehanding that symbol I can't say I dislike the result :D

bit of a shame he's in post-heresy armour. There's plastics available for Mk5 & 6, if you choose the parts carefully.

I'm not a big fan of the 'older' armour. I really prefer Mk 7.

fair enough, but it didn't exist before the heresy, is my point.

Haha the First Legion is high on my list no doubt! Trying to spread the Legions I REALLY want too paint though.. Shouldn't be too long hopefully. I just uploaded the picture of an Imperial Fists, busy on a War Hound/World Eater now and after this it will be either Ultramarine or Dark Angel!

Well,i will say Dark Angels.Why? Because there is a lot players who lead and play with Ultramarines.
I have Dark Angels army,and ones i get 5 Ultramarine models-and i left them to be Ultramarines (i have 60 tactical marines for DA chapter so 5 Ultras wont change anything in my army)! :)

Keep up with a good work friend! :)

Haha, I field a Blood Angel army myself but most of my Tactical Marines will be from other Legions after this 'Challenge'. Dark Angels are quite cool. Loved 'The Purging of Kadillus' and got the chance to chat with the author for several hours.. Good times! Don't have too much with the Ultramarines when you look at their fluff and stuff but I do want too try their colour scheme fast.
