|First five World Eaters|
|Various unit designations.|
I also chose to vary the tactical & squad symbols on their right shoulder pads. I am going to work with these 5 different symbols throughout the squad. Attempting to come up with 20-variations on the same symbols seems over the top.
|First completed World Eater|
These are arguably the first Marines I have completed since I began purposely shading & highlighting models. My Ultramarines are essentially color by numbers. While the Ultramarines are coherent and decent looking, they lack depth that comes with effective layering, shading, and highlights. I notice the difference without any Ultarmarine for reference.
Here is a close up of the first Marine with the blood on him. His knee is actually painted red as a mark of honor or some other designation.
