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.

Amazing, the chipping effect is great(cheers for the tips on your site), and its nice to see a different marine every once in a while

Uhm, wow! Awesome work! Your technique is fantastic - I especially love your metallics. The conversion is very good too, he looks refreshingly different. I might have to steal the idea for the helmet. One minor point of critic - I think the white parts have too many scratches compared to the blue parts (or at least they stand out more), but this is nit-picking

I just assumed this WAS Cyril's work when I first saw it - take that as a compliment I guess

It could use a less "pitting" in the armor, you went a little over board with that. Other than that it looks good.

What can I say, that I havent said already? Um..... I like the orange chipped stripes, and the base. and for some reason, I really like the clip in the bolt pistol.
