First Founding: The White Scars --Legiones V-- by Belazikkal First Founding: The White Scars --Legiones V-- by Belazikkal
The Wild Riders of Chogoris. The Sons of Jaghatai. The White Scars.

Done in ball-point pen in about 2 hrs.

This was actually smaller than the others, mostly because I was uncertain if the power lance would then fit the entire paper (*Arkeeva scolded me for not planing my pictures better, so now I am).

It might also seem strange to draw a White Scar without his bike, and in such a static pose. The reason is mostly because I wanted to highlight the difference between this chapter and the Space Wolves. They are both barbaric chapters, with a history on rather backwards worlds. But where the Space Wolves are the unruly vikings of 40k, the White Scars are highly disciplined, their ferocity akin to a welding flame, released when necessary. They enjoy the hunt, especially from bike-saddle, but there is restraint in their actions.

Also, power tulwars are the most awesome thing. Wicked shit.

Again an awesome piece of work. Nice detailed and all symbols of the White Scars present. I like the pose. Like on guard or in a battle pause, receiving orders. Not tensed up but also not chilled.
As for myself I like the White Scars. I bet they are pretty fun to play. If only the bikes where not so expensive. And if white wasn't such a pain to paint.

But. The proportions of the legs themself are pretty good but they look to thin compared to the torso. Also maybe the torso is to large. The crotch piece is a bit to long. Or he has a lot to cover.
The right shoulder is smaller than the left but with that perspective it should be the other way around. And I am not sure if the curly ornaments on the weapons are really fitting to the White Scars.

Anyway a nice work and a visible progress especially in proportions.

The leg thing is a result of trying to use a human, so to speak, and then "dress" it in power armour. The same goes for the crotch piece, if the belt is to appear at a waist-height, so that he can bend in the middle. It's one of the issues with why Space Marines cannot have human proportions, or at least not straight-off human. They have to be longer legged than your average hyoomin to look proportionate.
I agree with the shoulder pads. Didn't see that until after I was done, and with pen, there ain't much you can do about it.

The curly things actually DO appear on White Scar weaponry, to a point: [link]
Ritual dueling tulwar has it.

Well after another look I think the white space on the breastplate under the flash lets look the breastplate longer than it is. I guess that might let other proportions look weird.
The crotch piece of SM usually is wider on top and narrower at the bottom. This one is straight wich lets it look longer than it is.

As for the belt I don't know how Space Marines wear their armour but on mine the breastplate ends on usual belt level.

The trouble would be that if I let the carapace-piece end at belt-level, it's resemble Terminator armour. I think, in the end, we can blame Jes Goodwin for designing armour that makes precious little sense :lol:

But I'll keep the cod-piece criticism in mind for the next Marine: The Imperial Fist. As always, Grombald, your words are very useful to me. Doubly so, as you are a LARPer and historical re-enactment participant (?), if I've understood it correctly.

True. The Terminators also have a shorter crotch piece and a longer torso. We could blame Jes Goodwin for so many things. Like the Corvus helmet. Unluckily not for that the Tactical Marines have no CCWs anymore.

I like the IF. They are cool without any clichees. Not like e.g. the Dark Angels. And Cpt. Lysander is totaly worth the points. Unfortunatelly yellow is as hard to paint as White.

It was my pleasure. And I'm going to have a closer look to that Space Wolve soon ;)

I'm a LARPer. I've thought about reenacting but I don't think that'd be interesting for me. I prefer the fantasy world, although I try to keep my equipment authentic as long as it isn't a safety risk or uncomfortable. Discussing about magic theory is much more fun than discussiong the next show-battle on a medieval fair I guess.
