So, one of the focus points I have for next Gottacon, is to bring something Marine. I am not TOO locked in on a book yet despite my talk of Flesh Tearers (BA), World Eaters (assuming a good next book) or anything else.

As part of this, I am wondering if you all have any favourite armies based on their heraldry? Tim had the whole Deathwing/Ravenwing/Dark Angel thing rocking, and I really want something that I can practice on in terms of painting, that also has a varied look.

So that said, does anyone have any suggestions on armies that have a really awesome theme, preferably that break's things up by role/unit (Death company are black, deathwing are Bone/White etc).

I personally chose Iron Warriors for that reason, I liked the silver/gold (or bronze/brass) broken up by the hazard stripes.

If I was to choose another army based for colour and heraldry it'd be the howling griffons hands down.
The idea of the crosscheck pattern appeals to me, as do the colours themselves. Other chapters have a similar pattern with other colours as well.

Howling Griffons

Good question.

My next all time fav marine (thinking loyalist) chapter is Crimson Fist. really nice dark blue (came out in chaos) and that red accent on the hands especially helps highlight pose, weapon, and rank.......... so slick.

BA often has gold, or you're white Sang guard/artificier arm etc.. which could be expanded a bit.

You could do something like Legion of the Damned, and represent one of your veteran, or special units in a unique theme. Maybe something like in 'the first heretic' where one of the companies goes through a great ordeal, and their armour now reflects that.....

Or you could come up with your own paint scheme and a chapter to accompany it...?

Do you find color schemes difficult? Making up your own fluff for a chapter (if that's actually something you'd be interested in)? Or both?

Don't know if we can call swear on this forum but I call bullshit. You cannot paint as well as you do and say "I am no artist." For schemes, why not just play around with a few? Experiment? You do that with techniques, right? How is it different with colors?
