Getting Started on Resolution #3

I got a chance to stop in at the local Games Workshop to spend one of my gift cards and I noticed a Crimson Fist army on display. It, quite honestly, blew me away. I forgot how cool a fully painted Crimson First collection looks on display. The hobbyist (whoever he/she was) had a nice mix of plastic marines, metal veterans and some of the newer Forgeworld stuff throughout the force along with some cool conversions. I also really liked the shade of blue on the armor. I inquired and as luck would have it, the staff there had the color combinations used.

I ran home a painted up a test model. I was much happier with the way the test model looked as opposed to previous attempts at painting the army. So, I decided to begin keeping my resolution and got to work on my first unit of Tactical Marines. So stay tuned for more Crimson Fists stuff.


  1. Rock on, look forward to seeing them.

  2. Hi Mate. Really looking forward to seeing how you go with yours.
    A scheme I found on the WargamerAU forums led me to my version of the Crimson fists that I like look of. Its a bit darker and uses a hard highlight to make it pop.

    Here is a link to some of my stuff from a while ago... its not super fancy but it does the job I think.

    And some more recent figures:

    I will see if I can find the original forum post if your interested in the scheme.

  3. I can't wait to see them!

    @Agama, I think I found that same scheme, but when I tried it my figure came out super dark and not very blue at all. How did you do it?
