Painting test

Little news on the blackshield front. I managed to strip the Seeker Squad (previously World Eaters tacticals) and started some paint, the first one was pretty unlucky so it got to the alcohol pool to get striped again. Painting in hot weather is a bit frustrating, because paint dry up pretty fast -I even use a crappy-cheap wet palette but still. Almost give up and start to do something else (build up more marines, or the leviathan, or a contemptor, whatever, really), but finally decided to focus on the paint scheme. As name suggests, my intention was going with black armor (or black metal), but the result was too dark, and too close to the Deathwatch/=][= (and you know, death to false Emperor!) so I decided to go with Codex Grey armor and black shoulder pads with some color details for pouches, grenades, cables, etc.

So yet, another test model. Please, focus only in the front leg.
