Warhammer 40,000 Horus Heresy Skins

So... I have noticed that there are many Space Marine skins that alway have helmets on and are basically the same except for a few color changes. This makes me pretty mad as, each legion and chapter are different in their own special way. The Dark Angels, for instance, wear robes, while the Iron Hands have intense mechanical improvements. These characteristics apeal to me and I was disapointed when I couldn't find any skins that had them. Therefore, I have decided to try and make the Heresy Era skins of the 20 Legions (minus the 2 unknown/deleted legions... although tempted to do Angry Marines and Pretty Marines....) There will be 20 of them and they will mainly have all the certain characteristics that each legion had. (DA have robes, IH have mechanical stuffs, and WS with red tribal markings). I hope that they are good, but I am not such a great skinner so advice and help is appreciated. This is where I will post the links to the skins and updates for when a new skin is complete.



Also, these skins are ALL pre-heresy, and I am doing them in order of Legion number. However, there are a few special cases. These are: The Sons of Horus get 2 skins, the Lunas and the Sons. The Traitor legions have their post heresy skins as well, if it changed, but the post heresy skins will be the last worry.

UPDATE: Almost all of the skins are complete! Please Diamond, Favorite and Subscribe!

The 1st Legion: Dark Angels

The 5th Legion: White Scars

The 6th Legion: Space Wolves

The 7th Legion: Imperial Fists

The 8th Legion: Night Lords

The 10th Legion: Iron Hands

The 11th Legion: ----DELETED FROM RECORDS--- (if enough people ask this will be the Pretty Marines)

The 12th Legion: World Eaters

The 13th Legion: Ultramarines

The 14th Legion: Death Guard

The 15th Legion: Thousand Sons

The 16th Legion: Luna Wolves / Sons of Horus

Just for your informatation; The Dark Angels were black before the Heresy. They switched to green some time after the heresy to remember Caliban's green forests.
Not sure how much you care, but right should be right.
(The Word Bearers were also grey before the Heresy, although they did switch to crimson around Isstvan and Calth so meh)

As for the skins; They've got some nice details, although on several the colours seem a bit off from what they are in 40k (Blood Angels aren't pink etc. Might just be my screen that's weird though)
What did you use for inspiration when you painted the skins? Any templates in particular or did you improvise?

yeah haha don't worry, I am just a huge 40k player and know all the lore through and through. I used to be a noob, but then I read the Horus Heresy series... Aaron Dembski Bowden is the best author ever...

He's good, but not the best. Dan Abbnet and Graham Michneill are the bests in my opinion.

Oh? Who got hired to write a movie, huh? Neither of them! Hahaha! AD-B 1, DA + GM 0

Also, Aaron has so far written the best Horus Heresy books. First Heretic is spectacular and Butcher's Nails is brilliant. And I can't wait to read his newest one :3

Ummmm well Dan Abnett was I think the storywriter snd director for The Ultramarines. And isn't Butchers Nails like an audio drama? It sounds awesome but I like books. And one more last tthing, what is going to be his newest novel?

Ultramarines sucked. Lord Inquisitor is going to rule. And A D-B's newest book is called Betrayer. Here is a link to his blog. http://aarondembskibowden.wordpress.com/

I might be. I have already mentioned that I am going to be making the post heresy trator forces skins but havent thought about the renegade chapters. I will give it some thought and will descide either to make them or not. Just give me a list of renegade chapters you want done
