Hi, Im looking for a large, high quality pic of the old Space Marine Combat Squad Box. As shown below.

Has anyone got one somewhere they could link? or an actual box they could take a very good pic of?

Thanks.

What is it you're trying to see in it? Those are just 5 of the normal plastic Tactical Marines.

like colors? i think its regal blue, then UM blue, eyes and bolt guns are blood red, and shoulder pad trim and chest aquilia are sunburst yellow i believe...

clicking the thumbnail made it much bigger for me and easy enough to see the colours. :)

Just paint it red chances are the shade used was Blood Red as Ultramarine painting guides have always listed it.

Ah the good old "Happy Era" of 40K. I remember 2nd edition and into early 3rd edition when all the colors were bright, cheerful, and happy. Gone was the gothic/emo-ness of darker shades. Some units even painted geometric designs like stripes, checkers, and triangles as decorations to dazzle and thrill their enemies.

Blood red for the guns back then.

Sunburst yellow on the trims.

The armour is meant to be ultramarines blue but it always looks as though the studio uses a darker (regal blue?) shade then highlights up to UM blue, as if you have ever seen UM blue on most models straight out of the pot it looks awful.

In the grim darkness of the far future there is no such thing as shading and blending :p

Shades are for sun and blends are for margaritas! Only the BOLD (colors) are fit to serve the Emperor!!
