Painting and modelling my own space marine chapter.
The Astral Knights chapter badge.
This is the chapter badge I've come up with. I really like it for two reasons. Firstly I think it gets across the chapter name perfectly. The sword makes it very 'knightly' and the star pattern behind the sword doesn't get too lost. In fact I think the sword acts as the vertical part of the star pattern rather well. Secondly it's not too hard to paint freehand, this is very important as unless I make my own transfers or cast my own shoulder pads I'm going to be painting it quite often.
Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.
