I'm back with another post on the little Badab War vignette that I have nearly finished.
Today I want to talk a bit about the banner and banner arm with the Chapter insignia.
I have to spit it out straight away, I do not envy gamers who have decided to build a Lamenter army. I do not envy them, but I sure as hell do admire them. Painting whole squads of Lamenter shoulder Chapter insignia with the checkers and the bleeding heart must be a nightmare. At least that is what it was for me.
The circle is a decal of the Imperial Fists, with the heart painted on top of the fist. I found this the best way to paint in a perfect circle.
The fitting of the banner was also a bit tricky, and in order to do so I had to determine once and for all where the Space Marine would sit and pin it down. Only then could I apply the putty to form the shape of the banner.
Farewell and good health,
