Keep it up, brother. It's looking great!
I've used it myself a couple of times on a similar project where I tried to straighten up some marines, and takes very little effort And from the new pic I can see it worked out well

Well I just played around with some paints and washes and think I got the result I wanted. My original models were painted with bleached bone, thus much warmer. But I think this is more what I was going for when I painted them five years ago. Luckily this will save me tons of time as opposed to the layering technique I used before.
Awesome truescaling! Though one little thing that bothers me is using the bolter one handed like that (being a very weighty gun and all), I think a bolt pistol looks more appropriate if someone is running but thats just me.
But seriously, my hope with this army is to get some great poses from the conversions and perhaps create some strong characters with this. I like the idea that some marines excel at some skills more than others. Like, for example, firing a bolter with one hand whilst walking. I'll see what more I come up with in the future.
I've got the first finished marine for you. You'll soon learn that I'm a very slow painter but I learned some lessons painting this guy and will probably get some routine going and speed up the process. I've still got the heraldry save for the chapter symbol to figure out, like squad markings and numbers. Not sure yet if I'll go with something personal, the standard codex astartes or a mix of them both.
Next up will be the beaky marine on page one in dark armour.

WOW. That is a really solid, consistent Bleached Bone. I hope you don't go insane trying to paint an army of these.
DO IT!! I think a chapter like this would be nice, but you'll have to be careful when Truescaling him.Originally Posted by Guilliman
Great work, fantastic tutorial!
Keep it going!

Very cool True-Scale marines! I may have to give that tutorial a try.
Looking forward to some more diverse poses!
These are great! Really well painted, convereted, and I love the dynamism of your models and colour scheme!
Cheers for the tut.
that is an awesome looking paint scheme. Would you mind sharing it at all. I know you said it was dheneb stone and white, but what wash, and was it just one, and all that jazz. but great stuff.
Looking great! The scheme is convincing, ties in with what schemes we're used to and, as it's easy to paint, great stuff overall!
Second marine finished (save for the squad markings). This one wears an older suit of power armour, hence the darker colour scheme. Next up is the squad sergeant.
Nice, it looks like he just stepped out of a building, and is raising his bolter to track another target, a target that is almost nothing to him, hence his nonchalance.
Looks really good. I love the way you pose your marines

This is simply the best true-scaling tutorial I was able to find. I'll be restarting my Angels Sanguine using your techniques!
Question: other sculptors often add greenstuff to the torso and also add bigger shoulderpads. Is this something you've purposely chosen not to do?
I love your paint scheme, btw. Neat and effective!
Also, as I'm converting so many models, I want to have to do as little work on them as possible.
Thanks for all the comments so far!
Great work. I was wondering if you could show how you true scaled the terminator model.
Excellent tutorial, and great painting too
