Aqua Marine

hello everyone, here is a new mini I painted recently, a marine heavily inspired by one of cyril's new marines I saw on creafigs. A couple of friends and I wanted to practice some weathering techniques, so we decided to have a fun challenge and each painted a similar style marine, with the same markings and so on.

I know that mine doesn't look much like a traditional GW marine, but I was imagining something a bit more generic sci-fi in style, a bit more star wars-ish or something - think of him just as a rogue warrior from a generic sci-fi universe rather than a GW space marine, I just happened to use a GW mini as a base 'canvas' to work with because I had spares, and they have good blank, smooth surfaces! So because of this, I wasn't too worried about adhering to the proper GW marine markings or anything, and I left off the backpack as well for something different - yes I know, I have already had people telling me that he couldn't walk without his power supply haha, but like I said, I just wanted to do something fun and sci-fi, so I thought it might be ok to break the rules this time, if you will allow me!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it - there are bigger pics and more photo angles on my site.

Very nice! I really like the concept, and spacemarines often seem to benefit without their backpacks. The colours are also very nice and unsusual.. it really feels like an aqua marine. But the scratching-effect feels slightly too random. I think you should have tried to concentrate it even more along edges. For example it makes no sense why there are no scratches around his eyes. It's so funny though that I one day before you posted this marine discovered that a stippling with my big and filled-with-glue drybrush would give a similar effect! Now I need to try out the sponging thing! 9.2 All the best, Sven

i love that fact that it doesnt look like a space marine despite its clear that you've used one for the conversion base, it looks much more like an undefined futuristic warrior... some kind of human with robotic armour which could be used in any sci-fi world... 10 points for my fav. genious

you're getting better and better on each miniature, what you lost at originality here you gained at technic mastery! Congrats! - Michael
