Well after ordering large shoulder pads from Scibor's SF range rather than small I realised I was going to have to prioritise painting my Terminators after all.
I'm in the middle of a major project to repaint my space marines for my Warhammer Fantasy campaign over on Last Chance War.
I wanted to give them more of a fantasy feel but retain the versatility for both systems. Scibor Shoulder pads seemed a step in the right direction.
They cost £4.50ish for eight shoulder pads. It's a doable price but irritating that they don't come in tens (so you can do multiples of five men - probably an evil ploy on their behalf to make more money.
But they do look lovely!
I used Adeptus Battlegrey | Black Ink | Adeptus Battlegrey| Codex Grey & Tin Bitz | Dwarf Bronze. And Boltgun Metal | Black Ink.
And I'm also liking my new colour scheme. I feel very funny about leaving my crimson colour scheme behind but what's the worst that can happen?
Worst case scenario I can repaint them again and meanwhile they're doing me fairly proud.
