SHOWCASE: Close Combat Terminators

A gallery of my elite, close combat unit, the Emperor's malice.

My space marine force lacked any real close combat punch, so I finished these terminators earlier in the year. I painted them white, to stand out from my main force, which is painted grey and blue. I chose to make only one arm blue, to tie it to the chapter colors in a unique way.

I gave the Sgt. as much ornamentation as I could, not only to set him apart from the rest of the squad, but to make him look important if I decide to take him as a terminator captain in smaller games.

I'm quite pleased with the way they turned out. Painting anything white and not losing the details means taking painstaking hours applying washes into the details and retouching the surfaces.



  1. That Captain is practically a Grey Knight with all those details. Lookin Good!

    1. I MIGHT have gone a little heavy on the gold...

    2. Nah. He's a baller. Looks good.
