f is amazing: a chapter obsessed with chaos artefacts, possessed of a desire to use these weapons against those they were intended for, outcast by the Imperium, hunted by the Inquisition and still loyal to the Emperor, if not those who rule his domain. Awesome!so when I was rummaging through my bitz box, searching for a shoulder pad (you know when you see something, but can't find it when you need it!) I had the idea to build one!

|The Relictors model in Codex: Space Marines 5th edition|
This is the real reason that I painted him though. This is a model painted by 'Eavy Metal in the Relictors colour scheme and if you look above, it doesn't match the colour scheme in the codex. The one in the codex looks more metallic and, to me, cooler. So, I'm going to try to replicate it. I found nothing online so I decided to mostly make it up as I go along. I'm going to mix black and metal until it looks right and then paint him up. It may not be an official Relictor, but I'm not really going to use him. He's just for fun so, why restrict myself with anything else.
Sure, the regular grey is what everyone paints, sure it's the official scheme. But if I wanted what everyone else does, I'd play Ultrasmurfs.
