A few basic tips

-Break down the icon into a simple shapes
-Keep paint on the thin side
-Put freehand over a basic basecoat so you can touch it up with the basecoat color when you make a line too thick

Why do you need more than one Legion? :P

i am eventually going to create all legions

So for now im looking to get tutorials for painting and free handing

someone told me to get a squad to every legion(espically with the primarchs i have)

But i have found out that I can get certain legion emblems with the shoulderpad

eg chapter house studios has thousand sons, luna wolves and salermanders, fw also has salermanders so I have choice there

But for certain legion I will need to freehand symbols

GW Silver Skulls pads work fine for PH Iron Warriors, too.

There are several Legions which remain the same and are available in official minis - Ultramarines, Dark Angels, Space Wolves (and therefore, Luna Wolves too - one of the Great Companies' symbols is perfect!), Iron Hands, Blood Angels, Salamanders and Imperial Fists.

The Death Guard and Thousands Sons can be converted from the Red Scorpions Librarian Honour Guard:

but given the expense, probably better to freehand!

I freehanded a World Eaters banner and found it remarkably easy. I will try it out on shoulderpads and let you know if I can make a tutorial.
